Thanks for the comments, guys. I don't hire out, but would not mind helping someone. Right now I have about 10 months to the Augusta convention and not sure I will get the machine shop finished. Some days I just don't feel like it.

Thanks Russ. Those are some very helpful photos. I'll have to study them for details.
KP, Thanks for stopping by.

I am new to this site but have read all 57 pages so far. Your modeling is fantastic!

I just had a couple of questions:

1. Could you describe how you make your trees, especially the beautiful bark?
2. Where do the figures come from? Are they painted or do you paint your own?
3. Where do the vehicles come from?

I am just getting started in On30 after having a garden layout for about 10 years.

Hi John, Welcome to 0n30. Thanks for the comments. I thought I was the only one who read all 57 pages.
Now to your questions.
The trees are made with balsa trunks caspia branches sprayed dark green then sprinkled with Woodland grass {light green}. The trunks are shaped with 80 grit sandpaper then stained with A&I. Takes an evening to build a 2 ft tree.
Most of the figures came from Artista, and come painted. I do have the Woodland logging set but repainted them as they were to bright for my taste.
Model Ts are National Motor Car kits that Wiseman carries. The plow/tow truck is parts from two 1/43 collector cars and about 75% scratchbuilt.

I finally finished the planner. At times it was a struggle, but nothing wrong with the kit, just me. The broom is scratchbuilt. 5 min and 3 pieces of wood. Barrel is from the Big Lars collection, and by now most of you know who the figure is.

Really sharp kit, and you did a nice finish on it. Broom looks good too.
