work progress on the mill's flume. I need to build the gates and connect the the flume to the wheel's frame which obviously requires the lowering of the flume (actually the ground it sits on). Here's some over shots;

Looking really good, Bob.

Gave me an instant urge to get out my Campbell kit (similar) and give it a whirl. Your colouring is very nice.

Cheers, Mark.

I agree with Mark, that looks great! And I have said it before that the scene with the mill will be a real eye catcher.

Thank you guys. Rest assured, she is located right up front. Campbell kits all, but especially the Boat House, are very adaptable, verstitual kits. It makes it easier for me to approach the high bar that Hagan sets.

Thank you Dallas. Your comments are most welcomed.

Well, I got a phone call Thursday that changed my life. It seems the my client likes my work and demanded that my employer change my work schedule to Monday thru Friday giving me real two day weekends off just like people with real jobs have.
It's been awhile since that has been the case so I'm still a little in stock over it. But I am putting it to good use.
And, speaking of wells, I've worked on the wheel well of my mill. Building the inside bracing and working on the final stone coloring.
It's all still wet here;



Here's how it all goes together (it's not glued yet)so that I can evaluate it;

I think the flume is still too high above the wheel.

Enjoy and thanks again.

Great news for the job, Bob.
And very nice progress on the water flume. You're gonna have a very spectacular model. I do not find that the flume is that high.

Håkan and Frederic, Thank you. I appreciate the support. Here's the wheel going back up;

you can just see to the left that I also extended the wall. I'm designing/building the gates for the flume now.

And Then there was the flume in place;


Just a few details to add, the ground cover and the water.

I'm researching now how to model the falling water and it's splash. I'll except any leads, ideas on that.

No ideas on the water modeling ... but the mill and lowered flume look great! Nice work.

Bob,

How about a Google search. I did one on "water wheels for mills" and clicked on "images" which brought up lots of pictures. I tried to copy the link but it was to long. The forum software didn't like the long link.
