Gregg,
Congratulations on a superb looking diorama. As well as a beautiful structure, I must say thats some of the best looking white water I have seen modelled in a long time, as well as the bubbling wash of the flow after exiting the falls. A few tips on you water techniques would be great.

Thanks for showing the shots of your diorama. Simply outstanding work. Your craftsmanship and skills and almost beyond belief. Great work. Some of the best looking water that I've ever seen. Simply amazing.

Gregg, You and Jim have definately created another beautiful piece of art, I was wondering since they sort of look like pie shaped pieces will they end up somewhat next to each other along a river? I wonder how many molds did you use for the rockface, and how did you color them?
Did you make any changes to your water methods since the last diorama? There are so many little things that make this such a stunning piece of work, the wire roots from the washed out tree, the scenes of workmen and many more. How does the flume relate to the scene?
Thanks so much for sharing your layout tips with us, Pat.

Another outstanding project. You bring everything together perfectly, there is no weak area. Every part of it compliments the others. Great work.

WOW!!! That's really a great work of craftsmanship! I also like the landscape which is not flat like most.

I have a newbie question, and please don't take this the wrong way.

I noticed you've built it as a sort of module, not attached to a model railroad, so I'm just wondering what one does with a diorama such as this? How do you display it? Or is it for sale to a collector or a model railroader?

Again, not meant as any sort of criticism, genuine curiosity here!

Thanks!

Dave

Thanks. Jim and I are very pleased with the results. Our goal was to try to outdo our Thorndike efforts. I'm not sure we did, but we at least matched it. A very satisfying feeling.

I feel as though I am standing on the banks looking up at a piece of heaven. JOB WELL DONE!!! Some how falls short of how I truly feel. This is my first post and after a year of lurking it is time for me to say something ?? WOW I am completely awe struck. I have been to many abandoned mills and stood on their banks looking back, ? your depiction makes me feel as though I am there without ever leaving my home ?..Thank you!!! As stated earlier JOB WELL DONE!!! You both have ever reason to be proud, and guilty, you have now raised the bar for every other modeler on the boards.
Thank you again, I feel as though I am stand there.


Wow. Thanks for your many kind comments. I too was a lurker for a couple years, looking, learning and enjoying the talents of this group. These folks are very supportive, so you should feel free to comment, ask questions and exchange ideas. I am sure you will enjoy the interaction as much as I do.

Yes, I also have worked in many mills, old and new and understand that feeling you describe of sitting on the bank and looking up. Here is one more shot.

Thanks again,

Gregg

Thank you for sharing this. I now have an even bigger goal to reach after seeing these scenes.

Thank you. I enjoy modeling these SRM water related kits. There is so much you can do with them. Here is another shot showing the water flowing out of the mill and from the flume down the side drainage.

Dan,

Thanks. I used the same techniques I described in the Thorndike thread, which starts roughly on this page:

Here are a couple close up shots of the white water.

Thanks again,
Gregg
