    I eat corn flakes and my wife eats shreddies most mornings for breakfast. The Coal Tower used one corn flake box. Overall cost for the whole thing was under $1.00 Canadian.
    Tyson, I don't buy kits anymore.

    Robin,

    I hope I can say that someday. NO, not the thing about eating corn flakes, the thing about not buying kits anymore. :rolleyes: :D

    Since I'm still on my first layout, I'm still at the kit stage, but that's like crawling before you learn to walk, a necessary step in the process. To continue the analogy, you're not just walking, you're running, and doing an excellent job of it I might add.:)

    Um...I'm Speechless.

    I used to work in card stock and so forth, but my hands were never good with it. I have gone to other building materials...but this project is quite simply over the top!

    You might try finding a finer thread yet, though that may be hard in N scale....I have found that chain really doesn't scale well unless you are working with boats. Cable is even smaller.

    WOW, I'm just going through every project you have done, and I still can't believe the detail! It's simply amazing! You should have your own magazine Robin! The walkway is great!

    I was just browsing the Scratchin' 'n' Bashin' Forum and ran across this thread. This is simply the most amazing tutorial I've ever seen! But ... why compare to a Walthers kit when it ought to be compared to a Fine Scale Miniature kit at least! WOW!!!

    truly amazing out of ceral boxes
    you have talent my friend and it is good to see you using it
    that structure is beyond believe and the detail is excellant
    keep up the good work and thanks for sharing it with us
    and i agree with one of the other posts you should have your own magazine to teach people how to do it and to provide info and plans to others . you would make an excellant teacher.
    Thanks Again for sharing
