Pete, Ted, and Dave, thanks for the nice comments..

I am still busy with making interior details. Back in 2010 I posted a redo I did on a piece
with two plow horses, the farmer, and a boy. (see vol.1. page 12). At that time I said I had
another set and that someday I would use those figures, that day has finally arrived. I will be
using one of the horses and the little boy will become a stable boy at Hohn's Blacksmith Shop.
The other horse and the farmer will be used later.

The best blacksmith figure that I know of in large scale is, unfortunately for me, in 1/2???
scale, one of those large scales I can never remember. He measures six foot nine inches in 1/24
scale. I was able to remove six inches and he is now six foot three inches tall. Still a big man
but after all, he is a blacksmith.

Charlie is six feet tall.

Thanks Ted.

Well, Mr. Hohn finally got his sign up, now we can see who he is.



Note: There will be a slowdown in my model railroading for a short time. The problem is
another model. A month ago I bought a kit of an American Civil War Gatling Gun in 1/16 scale. It
was on sale at a good price but what was even better was that if you built the kit and took
some photos of it within 90 days you would receive a credit for the full price paid, so it was actually FREE.
I have let some time pass but I really must get that thing done!!

Bob

Bob,

I was driving to Indy to the NMRA convention a good part of today, so I did not see the new sign before now. It looks great. Apparently a very successful business.

My wife maintains that you like using my name because it's nice and short. She says that with an ornery twinkle in her eye. I guess you're not the only one who knows how to cut a guy down to size.

Mike

In between working on the Gatling Gun I have been adding small details to the interior. I have
painted and installed the blacksmith and the stable boy along with tools, boxes, and barrels. I
hope to finish the dirt floor today and then it will be back to the outside of the structure. Will
try to find time to take a few more photos today or tomorrow but no promises as I do have real
world work to do too.

Bob

Here's a few shots going around looking into windows.












I'll try to post some overhead shot of the whole interior tomorrow.

Bob, the views of the interior through the windows and open doors look very inviting.
The only thing that I question is, the cleanness
of this blacksmith shop.
I think your dirt floor needs some soot added to it around the hearth.
Every blacksmith shop that I've ever seen, has been a very dark & dirty looking place.
Your place looks like it's run by Mr.Clean, and not by Mr. Hohn.

Greg, You can't see it but there is black all over the floor in front of the hearth but I do agree I
have to add more. I also want to add more "stuff", it is a work in progress. I did get black all over the blacksmith too but again, I must add more.

Bob

Bob, Maybe Mr Hohn only has celebrity clients like Mr. Ed, Black Beauty, Flicka, My Little Pony (What! not them!) which explains his extra clean shop. Though if that's not the case, I agree with Greg that every blacksmith shop I've seen has the entire floor completely covered with cinders, clinkers, coke, and broken bits of metal, and that's not counting the ones with horses inside :)
