I decided to rework this barn which was a tobacco barn and turn into a barn more suitable for livestock then to build a new one. I will have to enlarge the door under the overhang and either find or make new posts for the overhang. It also could use a door on the end and maybe a hayloft. I included the penny to show the size on a N scale barbwire fence.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the barn, Mike.

BTW, blending that pond into the surrounding grass is a perfect use for ground goop.

Good looking barn Mike. Any ham fisted bending of the barbed wire fence material can be put down to age and wear and tear.

Thanks guys! Bruce I never could master the art of making goop with a texure suitable for N scale. Lynn I work on O scale stuff at work and to be honest I find the N scale easier in that a lot of the detail you have to deal with in the larger scales doesn't exist in N scale. Jon I 'll be suprised if there isn't some "age" on that fence.

O.K. I'm calling the pond done for now, usual disclaimers about it could always use some more of somethin' . I also started on the barn, more on it when I'm done.

Mike, very nice work on the barn and molding it into the pond scene. I really like the way the colors of the scene blend together. Well done sir!

Best Regards,

Tim

Looks fantastic. I seem to recall when I was growing up and I use to venture across the road to the apple orchard/cow field there were always many cow patties close to the pond and in the field.

Thanks guys! Jon I laid a bead of Elmer's around the edge with a toothpick then shifted real dirt onto it and "smushed" it into the shape/slope I wanted. After it dried I vacummed up the excess and did some touching up. No Lynn, I'm not going to try to model N scale cow patties!

Thanks Mike, sounds simple but probably wasn't.
