Thank you all once again. I spent the day using up the last of my hydrangea flowers. I really like the trees they make. Filled in to the left of the ore dock.



Can't wait for them to start growing again.

Spring is here! My coworkers in your area were reporting snow still. The trees and scene are great.

Still trapped indoors at the old folks home but putting the time to good use and enjoying myself. I just finished a Ameri-Towne kit which contained 4 walls with molded in windows and doors, and 2 roof pieces. I added a few details and a covered walkway in front. Not bad for a $12 kit.



I also finished all the landscaping around the ore dock. Glad it is finished as I had to stand on a chair to reach it and my legs kept giving out.

$12!! How can that be? Itís a nice looking structure, especially with your enhancements and finishing touch.

No way does that look like a $12 kit.
Great job on it and the completed ore dock.

What wonderful work!

I really like the bike on the porch. A little detail to make the scene complete.

At least there's a silver lining to being trapped inside! I like the stain marks under the windows and going up from the bottom. Nice attention to details.

Your comments about the price of the kit got me wondering. I did get it at a show in MD at least 5 years ago. I saw on the computer last night they are selling for $17, so 12 was probably right. They have several different kits available so it might be worth looking as while they are very basic they are well done.

Anyway thank you all for looking and commenting. I started a kit from Bar Mills last night called Hinkels Package Store, but I am going to turn it into a small post office.

Here are some of the things I have been working on for my little town in a tiny space.



First was to finish the oil tanks I started a long time ago. It needed a wagon and mules and some dirt, simple project. Next I took all the buildings and details from Vinson's garage off the base as it was taking up to much space. Compressed the buildings a little and left off some of the details. Another simple fix. Then I saw I had room for this.



The wagon is a hay wagon from Model Tech and the car is from a Glenco kit of a 1903 Caddy. It is now parked in it's new home.Then I had room for a building and a half between the Caddy and the track. The white building is a Village store Scratch build with Grant Line doors, windows, and support posts for the porch overhang.



The last building is what I call a Hollywood movie set building. As you can see in the last photo Only what can be seen will be modeled in order to clear where the track is.

Posted the wrong picture of the wagon and Caddy



Have room for one more building and am thinking of a small church.

Thanks for looking. Roland

Roland,
You have been busy. The buggies and structures look fantastic. Love the fact the new fangled contraption is now being moved with a horse drawn wagon.
