That's an impressive looking jib crane, Tony. I'm sure your little people appreciate the labor saving equipment.

LOL, thanks George. I wanted to do something different that isn't readily available.

I think I am at the point of calling this done. I wanted to put a couple of figures taking a break sitting on the deck, but can't find just the right pose. Might be better just to leave them off and call it done. What do you all think? I took these shots outside in the shade to avoid the harshness of the sun.

With or without more LP you've done a fine job Tony.

Tony, you are quite justified in calling it DONE. Beautiful job and a lot of inspirational ideas for all of us.
Thank you, Dave

Bob, Jerry and Dave.

Thank you all very much. It is a tough decision to say that is enough and let it be.

I've cleaned off my workbench now, and I have a clean slate. I have so many model kits and ideas, I am stuck for a while as to where to go from here. I thought about actually doing a real kit.....but which one...

I am pleased Sewall's came out this well, and am glad I had the opportunity to share, and I will continue to do so. But for now, and as someone said, "I'll be back"

Outstanding build and a real showstopper created by one of the forums Master Craftsman. Phenomenal "E"-ticket ride as we watched this showpiece come together.

Thanks so much for the additional information and details shared, and for your willingness to take the time to communicate the information.

Looking forward to seeing the next project.

Tony,

You don't want a little more rust on that chain?

Just kidding. I'm impressed by your patience with the little bits, with an overall vision from the very start how you want it to look in the end.

It's fun thinking about "what's next." Come back soon!

Mike

That's a fine looking diorama, Tony. You sure have a lot of details and they're all in logical places.

Excellent scratch work all around Tony!

Simply for comparison between scratch vs. kit.... I'd be interested in your rough monetary estimate on all the materials required?
