    My Saratoga Mine

    Hello all,

    I scratch-built this mine from a design by Malcom Furlow. The plans were published in the Gazette. It is made board-by-board from scale 2x8 boards with individual 1x2 battens. All the other assemblies are made from the appropriate size scale lumber. The water tower core is a 35mm film canister.

    Really beautiful work Karl. What scale is it. I know you say the tank is made from a film cannister so would I be presumptous to think it is HO?

    Yeah Karl while your not doing anything else you could go out and buy a $10K laser cutter and start selling kits. You if you talk to Rusty he's always looking for ideas maybe you could colaborate with him. Pat
