Carl, I didnít see an LED headlight on the bike, what gives. I have to hand you the award for the strongest building bolt down Iíve ever seen. Looking forward to the big finish.

Maybe the driver from the wagon could be cleaning up after the horse??

Great work on those little kits.

Carl, this project is reminding me of a Advent Calendar, each time you post it reveals yet another little treat.
Really looking forward to seeing all of the lights come on!

Thanks very much Kevin, Dave G., Jerry, Greg, Dave D. and Ed !

Kevin- actually the farm wagon is typical Jordan - nice fine details- but certainly a bear to assemble!

Frank- LED on the bike ? - sure, I'll get right on that!

Jerry- Not a bad idea, but I can predict Darlene's reaction to that suggestion.....

Greg- I promise I'll do a test fire on the background buildings lights in the next update.

Dave D- yep- Frank will sometimes hold my feet to the fire.......

Carl, those flats aren't going anywhere soon'. The bikes look great, but Frank is right. The riders will need head lights'. Nice wagon and horses'..BEAUTIFUL

Carl,
Catching up to your build again, great attention to details, especially the horse and wagon, and bicycles. I have a few of the Jordan models, would you like to put them together for me? Nice job. Can't wait to see this all come together.

You are making excellent progress, all the painting on the iny peeps etc must take a real toll on the eyes. Amazing work.

Ted- Thanks. I know the bolts & nuts are big, but they were sitting unused in my leftover hardware drawer....and I had 5 sets. Sold.

Rich- Thank you. The Jordans are tricky to assemble, but I'm sure you can do it.

Jim- Appreciate that. Done for Santa? It has to be ready by next week!

Lynn- Thanks. You are absolutely right about the eyes, even with my Optivisor- they are sore after working on Presiers.

Curious, which optivisors are you using? I use the Donegan lx-5 2.5 @ 8" and still need to wear my readers with them. Growing older has no perks.

Lynn... I use the Donegan Optivisor DA-10, right over my bi-focal prescription glasses.. It's the highest magnification set they produce, at 3.5 X @4".

And I have to wear my glasses every waking moment, because my eye sight is completely out of focus without them. Indeed, this part of aging is not much fun.
