Thanks guys for all your nice comments, I appreciate every one.

Not much done with the Holidays approaching. I did get some styrofoam down to model the grade.
Then, as usual, covered it with plaster cloth.

Not much done but I did get the plaster painted a dirt color. I also made a set of steps to go from
the platform down to the ground but it was not on place when I took these photos.





One of my pet peeves is the lack of figures of children for our model railroads. There are a
few in HO and O scales but little or none in G scale (I use 1/24). Big cities and towns on our
model railroads all peopled by adults, no children. I don't think that is realistic. I
just received more figures from the maker above and he does have lots of children. One that
really impresses me is the figure of a Dad and his small son all printed as a single figure.

Bob, your mill is really looking like a real place, now that you have some land around it.

Those figures do look interesting, but why do they have such thick round bases on them?

Bob,

It's looking really good!

Looks very good Bob. It appears folks didn't see/read your post on the figures that come with the bases. They are perfect large scale figures. And cost effective I think. It's just terrific the advances in the larger scales figure wise'..If I had the extra space, I'd revert back to 1/24. When I hit the megga millions lotery'..

The mill is coming along nicely.

I agree about the lack of non-adult figures in large scale. It's great that this new source has some children.

Thanks for your comments Mark, Greg, Mike, Pete, Ted, and Ray.

Greg, talking with the producer of those figures and he tells me he will start making them for
model railroad use by making them available without the bases. Until I started talking with
him his figures were simply figurines intended as individual pieces.

Pete, I received some new kids figures and one has his head hanging down as if your scolding
worked!!

Had a few minutes to work on the project. This is a fall scene so most of the ground will be covered
with fallen leaves but I did start planting some of the taller stuff that will still be seen. Just a start.

Thanks Pete. WOW, that guy works fast. He already has a bunch of his figures available without the bases. Click "sort by newest first" to see them all.

The first layer of fallen leaves has been applied. These are little leaves from the dried
seed pods of a white birch tree.





MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.

What a beautiful little mill! So well done. And yes, we need more little, little people.
