Very Impressed with the details in finishing the scene. Ive added a few notes to my notebook to finish a blacksmith shop i have been working on for a year or so.
I love the rolled up news papers laying around.

No, and I don't think they had that style of roofing back then whenever "back then is". There is no date on the model, nor with the distressing involved is there any clear sign as to how old the model is. I had clearly stated "more atuned to your neck of the woods". That means I know that England does not have 800 numbers or even ten digit numbers, but to use whatever the common phone numbers for England. RTFM LMFAO

Hi: Hope everyone is having a great summer. The big event for the California Central Coast Modular On30 Group (CCCModOn30) this summer was attending the National Train Show (NTS) held in Sacramento, CA on July 8-10. Four seperate CA groups using the same standards constructed a layout covering 2400 sq. ft. with 60 different modules. It turned out great.

In addition to NTS, the NMRA X2011 Nationals were being held in an adjacent hotel. I took the opportunity to enter the Mill Engine & Boilerhouse into the Model Contest in the Kit Built/Display Category. I was very pleased when it was awarded first place. Thanks Brett for a great kit and thanks to all of you who helped me through the build.

Thank you all for your continued support and kind words. The forum was a big part of this build and hopefully will continue through the entire sawmill module construction.

I take a little break from modeling during the summer months. Plenty of train shows however. This weekend is the GTE-San Jose show where we are setting up modules.

Next on my build list is the O-scale 10 piece sawmill machinery kit from SierraWest. I have it in hand and it looks like it should be fun.

Have a great summer and we'll probably get back at it shortly after Labor Day if not sooner.

Regards, Joe in Morgan Hill, CA CCCModOn30
