Robert and Mike, thank you. I think it's plane to see you need quite a few to create a scene you can clamp on to, to create a believable look. Seriously, some of those I built, some are from Shapeways, some are from SSLtd. Took me most of yesterday afternoon. On to the next detail....

Tony,

Thank you for including your fingers in some of the shots - gives great perspective on just how TINY these parts really are! Lovely grouping that looks realistic.

out at the farm we had a shed, kind of a blacksmith shop, about eight by ten feet or so ...
it had room for a stationary engine, maybe one to two horse, with wall mounted drill press and grinder with the rest of that
side having a workbench with a mounted leg vise..
the other wall had a small forge [top load] with a hand crank fan, and some shelves. the center had a large anvil
mounted on an old stump.. this building was old when i was young in the late 50's


regards, Warren

Warren, that's pretty small, but what a lot of detail that would show if in a model. But, I think I'll make mine a little bigger. Thanks for sharing that.

Warren,

I can visualize it perfectly, was the stationary engine a gas one as I imagine or electric...

Your description conjours up a plethora of modeling ideas and potential.

Thank you Jerry. My intention is to try to do as good as some of the other great modelers that have done similar things. I couldn't come close to some of the masterpieces I have seen, but am loving the attempt to do so.
