Thanks Neil. Since the story has a country/hunting theme, I think you will appreciate this shot.



Something about the road, barn and pens in the background that makes this scene work.

Thanks. Since I know you like wood and board by board construction, I know you will appreciate this closeup shot.



I too have a fondness for wood details.

Hi Mike. Thank you. Jim and I appreciate your kind words and are pleased that we rekindled a few of your fond "country drive" memories, as will this pic.

Thanks for posting this diorama. I really enjoy seeing such great technique and there is so much to learn from your attention to changes in elevation.

Gregg,
Just another perfect scene. The barn by Jim really captures the original.
Did Jim have any plans drawn up or dimensions for the barn?
I'd like to do a scratchbuild in O scale of it.

Great stuff Gregg. I was wondering though.... what if anything about modelling, do you NOT enjoy? For me it is doing the roofs, whether it is rolled or corrugated or shingles. I just hate roofing. I was just curious........

Thanks Cliff. We like the barn too and it fits the scene so well, some may say makes it, as demonstrated by this shot.
