Thanks guys. I am not working full time on this build, I am working in segments whenever I can. I
am also skipping around a bit to work on what interests me at the time or what I have time for.
It will be this way through the Christmas Holidays.

Here is the start of the waterwheel. I prefer basswood but I had some balsa on hand and this
is going to be painted anyway so that's what I used.

Rolling right along there, Bob. Nice that you're taking this project easy, avoiding the grind.

Very nice tutorial and those are excellent stones Bob'. I bought a piece of BF when KP started his project. Now with both of you sharing all the techniques, I will finally attempt to give it a shot to try to replicate your fine work'..I can't wait to see this build finished up'..

Bill, Ted, and Mike, thanks for the comments.

Here are the stone walls. They look much better to the eye than in these photos, they have many
subtle colored stones, I am just not a very good photographer.

Bob,
Terrific carving and coloring on the stone walls. Your photography work is quite acceptable and we enjoy seeing your photos! I like the rusted wheel support and the way the rust washing onto the stones.

Dave and Ray, thanks for your comments.

I installed the buckets in the wheel and made the axle end fitting.

Bob, both the stone work and the water wheel reflect some very nice modeling!

Bill, Bruce, Greg, and Frank, thanks for your comments.

Here's the first step in making the logs. The real ones were cut or axed flat on the outside
and chinking (mud, clay, grass. moss) was used to seal between them. The ends were cut to
interlock.

For the model I cut the logs from some slices of balsa foam, glued them in place, and then used a
spatula to round the top and bottom of each one to represent the round top and bottom of each
log where it showed next to the chinking.

Bob,

Great looking logs. You turned them out pretty quickly. You must gave gotten into a log rhythm.

I have a modeling friend who likes installing signals on our club layout. Whereas he's into interlocking plants you're into interlocking logs.

Mike

Hi Bob,
Are your logs interlocked or did you add end pieces to give the appearance of interlocking?
