    I wanted an abandoned cabin to go along with the "NOTYORES MINE" casting the walls of the cabin and not filling the molds completly I was able to achieve the derelict look.

    My method of working at my workbench rather than over my module is to constuct a little diorama and plug it in later

    That was great Bill!!!!!! Thanks for the laugh! Beautiful modeling by the way. Your module looks fantastic! The cabin is a terrific little detail that will eventually catch people's eyes once they've gotten over how cool that testle is!

    That's going to be an awesome module Bill. Nicely done. That little cabin is a beaut, as is the penny.

    WAY UP!


    Bill I have to say you had me fooled, I love the little cabin and espescially the idea of the module idea. I don't now if it was just my computer but a couple of the photo's were so dark I could barely make out the cabin, maybe that miner forgot to pay his electric bill? How do you accomplish the sectional method , because I have a layer of foam but it's glued to the plywood sub base?
