    First posting to this site, I wanted to show my latest project of a Lumber Stacker. I scratchbuilt this Lumber Stacker in 1/48 using a picture from the steaminthewoods Website of one at the Wagner Mill in 1932. Feel free to comment. Thanks for looking. Sean

    Wow, and wow again Sean :)

    I suppose that it's not your first project that you now share with us?
    Perhaps you have more pictures? *Hope*
    Do you have any idea how many hours it took to make it?
    For me eternity wouldn't be enough :mrgreen:

    Hi, Sean, and welcome to the Gauge. :wave: Beautifully done job!:thumb: :thumb: Was everything scratchbuilt, or did you use some commercially available parts? I like that light rail, too: anything heavier would've detracted from the scene.
    I have to confess, when I saw the title to your thread, I thought it was in reference to this:

    Thanks

    Thanks for your comments guys, glad you liked it. It took me about two months to complete as I had to redo the A-frame part a couple of times (I was never good at Geometry). The only comercial parts used were the pulleys and engine, the rest was from styrene. I will try to post some detail shots of it soon. Thanks again for the comments. Sean

    A great, well done model, Sean. Do you have the lumber mill to go with it?
