Thanks Karl. We should complement George Sellios for the pens, for they are built from the Butcher's Way kit templates, extended around back and to the right side.



The barn is a different story, having been built from pictures I took of the prototype I found on a New York country road.



Credit Jim for this wonderful scratch built barn. He really did not leave much for me to do on this one..



Just a wonderful job by Jim.

Wow Gregg!!! Outstanding modeling in all regards! The composition of the scene is so realistic. That barn is one of the most impressive scratchbuilds I've ever seen. Thanks so much for sharing your inspirational work!

And the entire diorama with your storyline is perfect.

Thanks Dave. Ever since finding "the barn", I have been looking for the right opportunity to fit it into a scene. This it the place where it belongs.

Gregg and Jim,

Bravo, Bravo!!! Another standing ovation for a very creative use of structure kits reworked to fit a more western theme. You guys continue to amaze as always. As already pointed out, now it will take a while for all this to sink in and for us to begin to see this kit in a totally new way as you have done. As always thanks for sharing your creativity, story line and wonderful photos. Can't ever get enough of your photos. If possible could you do a feature photo shoot of the custom built barn and stock pens with a few overhead shots and even possibly share some photos of the prototype barn or plan you worked from?

Later, Dave S. Tucson, AZ

Fantastic modelling as always from the 'dynamic duo'..... also incredible 'out of the (kit) box' thinking and very creative imagination to bring a very believable and familiar scene to life.
The barn is a masterpiece, though equalled by the rest of the diorama. Wonderful and inspirational work by you both. I look forward to seeing the many pics as this thread progresses.

I know I've been there. What a tremendous diorama. In my travels, I've seen so many small rural towns that you have handsomely captured.

I can remember small towns like that all over in my travels, you've truly captured a slice of reality. It will be saved among my inspiration files as I have two similar areas on my layout that needs something just like that.

Wow!

You guys are something else. Just as good as the build is the story that goes along with it. Thanks for the memories.

You've done it again, Gregg. What a great, imaginative, rendition of this kit. Not only is the modelling remarkable, but it's wonderful to dare - and even : think of - modify such a kit. The final result is tremendous.
I love the way you keep adding more pictures to your answers, it contributes to make your topics quite unique.

So Peter, your scanning RR Forum pics on your iPhone!! Oh my, have I fallen behind in technology. Thanks and glad you like the pics. Here is one of those "walking down the road" view shots to enjoy.
