Bob, Thanks for the painting tips for animals and people. I will give it a try and see if my hands are steady enough.
Your figures sure look great!!

Jeff, Thank you for your wonderful post, it is much appreciated. I hope my work has somehow

Cheers,

I guess these will be the final two shots of Hohn's Blacksmith Shop for this build. It has been fun.

That's a beauty! The little hint of scenery around the structure gives it a nice, relaxed feel too.

I have decided to take a break for a while. I will still be checking in on all of your builds
and commenting but I do not have a new Model RR structure started. I just checked and I see that
I have been building and posting one structure after another for just over six years non-stop.

I also made a mistake. When I went back to the start of vol. 1 of this string to check what the
date was I made the mistake of starting to read what I had posted back then. It was fun bringing
back some memories and laughing at some of the posts and I ended up wasting most of the
afternoon reading them. Well, not really wasted, I enjoyed it very much, I'll read more.

So, if you don't see any new posts from me I want you to know that I am OK and will keep in
touch by posting to your builds. I feel you are all my friends.

Cheers,

Bob

Bob, I always enjoy going back and reading your past volumes of "Structures on the LP&N RR"
They are incredibly inspiring, and a hoot to read.
I really don't know how you put up with me and my bad puns, for so long.
And now you have Bill Gill to contend with, who's even more punny than myself.
I hope this break won't be for too long, it's not going to be the same place around here without the Amazing Santos building something for us to learn from & enjoy!

Hmm Bob, I'm not so sure that I like this'. Honestly, since I joined the forum, the first thread I look for after logging on is the one with your name on it....Sure we have the old ones to re-read, and that's good'. But I will miss your new and current builds. Because of you, I am now a better modeler than I was. Your attention to detail is contagious'. Your verbiage is clear concise, friendly and to the point'. I study your builds all the time, just to reinforce and keep my skills polished. And the simple fact is, I just love looking at your wonderful work, and it always makes me smile.. And it is nice to get your Christmas Card every season'...I also very much consider you a friend as well'..Please take care and enjoy your hiatus. But hurry back soon'....


Ted

Bob,

I've been enjoying your frequent updates showing excellent modeling. Recently I showed non-model railroaders your photos--especially M. Hohn Blacksmith, of course--and everybody sees and appreciates something different in what you've done. Naturally the horse-owning coworker raved about your horse, others admired the whole scene. Just want to let you know how your work connects with people.

Meanwhile, a little rest period, not too long I hope. And I hope we hear from you often.

Mike

Bob, It's summer, the weather's been hot, there hasn't been much rain and you've been building away for over six years. You deserve a break. Enjoy, Relax. I for one believe that your modeling impulse will be refreshed and renewed.
And Greg can hold his own until then too:)

Enjoy your break, Bob!

I've had to take a break from modeling for a while too. Hopefully I will be able to get back into it again some time after my annual Nevada trip next month.

WOW!! Thank you Greg, Dave, Ted, Mike, Bill, and Ray, for the wonderful posts. I do appreciate them all.

Ray has a string going right now with some great photos of his early work. I do not have photos
of my real early stuff. I started scratchbuilding just before WW II. We were not
poor but we were just coming out of the great depression and then material got scarce because
of WW II. Therefor, my model building was usually done with "found materials" (paper, sticks,
cardboard boxes, etc.) and I did not have a camera to take photos anyway. Ray's string had
me digging and digging and the earliest photos I could find were these two from the later part of
the 1950's. They show a scratchbuilt, free lance, HO scale engine facility.





Bob
