Ditto Larry's comments.

I do have a question, though, what are your intentions with securing the structural beams resting on the rocks?

Regards,

Thank you all for the appreciation.

For the footing,I had nothing special in mind.Saw many footing sitting directly on rock ,leveled with concrete only,if needed.

There will be four wires,starting at the top, who will anchor the tower.I've found real steel wire,small enough for the scale,but don't want to simply fix them with a clod of glue.Simmering some tying fixture.Not easy up here to find and order everything.

At last did some attachment for cables.
Didn't have fancy EVERGREEN so used an old credit card,cut,sand,drill,lot of trouble,not satisfy,thrown away,start again.Endup like that.Had to make both sidethen cable's end.
Need weathering.
The other end of the cable is fixed in the ground but not sure if it'll stay that way.Can see in the left corner of the last picture


Scenery coming for this corner.


Made a junk pile.
A drain pipe discharge in the pond in the left foreground.
Will try for better pictures of that.



Solved the problem of the chute's height with those mines car.
Had to build a track's bumper.
Weathering here and there and hoist house is next.

Have a nice day.

Nice work, and I love these cable attachments, there are a very interesting details which I had seldom - if ever- seen modelled. The junk yard, the chain hanging on the side of the bin, are two interesting details.

There is not that much water flowing but we see it better here.




Have a nice day

Very nice great job on the weathering of the details and the water is realistic looking.
Is the scene just about complete now?

You've got modeling down to a top notch level. I can only say what the others before me, have already said. Outstanding Diorama!!!!

Thank you JERRY.
Yes,for a bit of weathering,this part is finish.
Will start on the hoist house next but there is less work to do.
The end is near
We have to stop somwhere,isn't.
Have a nice day

Simply to explain how I did it and share.
The tower had to have four wires to stabilize it.I didn't simply want to glue those wires.
Cut four length of that steel wire,who comes from a dollar store.



Next,I wanted some kind of eyebolts.
Used a wire,skin the envelope few cm,made a loop.Don't have to be a perfect loop cause it will be hidden.



Now I have to join the wire and the eyebolt.Used a tube .032 O.D.


Eyebolt at one end,the wire at the other end.



CA,push,hold,solid.


But all that looked a little simple.Made a coil.Simply twisting a wire over the same tube.


Push it in place.




Painted the eyebolt and ready for a test fit


Tried to fit into those holder,didn't work.Problem was that I folded the part over a candle and it made a "V" instead I needed a channel.Had to make an other one.No sweat,I had plenty of credit card left.


This is for the ground part.
Found this necklace part at a D store.


Made a hole so the same tube fit right in and will accept the wire.



Made a cement base and all will go into the ground


Voilŗ.Hope it might inspire you for other idea.
Have a nice day.

Thanks for the explanations Yves. They show quite clearly the whole process of making these cable attachments.
