Well Gregg, we often see superb modelling on this forum but the first pic is so exceptional you could fool the commoner into believing it's a real mill. You deserve at least 1000 attaboys for this one and please add one more from me.
Very humbling and awe inspiring indeed. I've promised myself a SRMW kit when my money comes through.

WOW!
Love the pouring water.

You've captured the realism of the moment as well as an extremely realistic and well constructed mill.

Photos are quite deceiving, one not knowing would actually believe that this was indeed a distance shot of a real building.

Beautiful.

Hi Gregg.
Big change from the pics Jim first sent me when he was done! It really looks great.
Those mountains in your backdrop are awesome. Is that artwork imported from China???

OK, the first time I thought it might just be beginner's luck. Now you're just showing off!

Can I hire you to build some stuff for me? Fair is fair.

Great job. You're gonna need a bigger layout.

Wonderful diorama Greg, love the structure but it was the rock work that really impressed me, do you have any detail (macro) pictures from the rocky area?

Gregg, that is about the most fantastic diorama that I have ever seen. Every aspect of it is outstanding. You made it even better with the great photography and the perfect background setting. I would give you even more compliments but I have to go to my train room and burn every model I ever built.

Gregg, outstanding modeling and photography. Everything looks very realistic. I think most people looking at your pics would believe they were looking at a real mill. Again, congratulaations on a very nice diorama and thanks for sharing your pictures.

Henry,

Thanks for your kind words. I agree with you that the water adds much (thanks to Bob for the great use of water in his kit design). Here are a couple more water shots.

Jimmy,

Thanks. Jim and I seemed to have come up with a winning combination (two heads are better than one; or four hands; or something like that). Yes, these mountains and hills are special. That's why I chose to live here. Oh, the artwork from China is hanging on the walls inside the mill office.

Scott,

Thanks for the praise. You sure would not want to hire me by the hour. I am just too slow!!! I always seem to find one more thing to fix, then another, then another ..... so I never seem to be able to move on to the next project. That said, I do owe you a few.
