    Here's a scratchbuilt structure I finished a few weeks back, just needs weathering and the grey card taking away and bedding into the baseboard. The final structure I am just on with is a new Sawmill with a footprint of 15" by 11". Should have this completed by the new year.

    Shamus, are you interested in adopting a 10 year old child trapped in a man's body? I'm very good at holding the flashlight, I promise I won't break anything and I don't eat much. In 8 short years I'll be scratch builoding like you and I'll be old enough to be on my own. What do you say? :D :D :D Dad? :D :D :D hmmm?:D :D :D ... jr.

    Wow Shamus.
    I sure wish I could do as good as you and Robin.. If I didn't know that was a model I would swear it was real. If I came over with a shotgun could I induce you to make me a few buildings? lol.

    I am convinced Shamus that you ARE George Sellios in disguise.

    So Shamus,
    When and how do you want me to send you my mail address so you can send me my home-made Christmas presents? :D :D :D :rolleyes:

    I figure that by the time I can sit down and do work like that, I will be old and gray with shaking hands and won't be able to do it.... :rolleyes:

    David it took me around three weeks from start to finish, I still have a little work on it to do yet, but thats just cosmetic.

    Rich, I always do a plan of it on computer, so yes, they are around for either H0 or N.

    Shamus,
    Once again !!! :D :D :D
    It looks like one of those older industries that has "just growed"
    as the need required. The crane, on the elevated dock, is a great touch of character, as is the use of mixed foundation materials. Another inspiration !!

    Rich, you got in before I got my response completed.:)

    Shamus, You bet I THANK YOU!!! Great drawing. I printed it out to study it a bit and need to ask what is on the side we do not see in your photo? Does it mirror the front side in most respects? I seem to have more parts than I can account for in your great photo.:D :D :) :)

    Thanks again. This one is going to be a bit of a challenge I think.:) :)
