I have always enjoyed visiting the blacksmith shop at Knotts Berry Farm so I decided to make my own version in O scale.



This is a night time view from outside the shop.

An overhead shot.



Most of the hand tools are wooden HO scale tools purchased from a guy in Italy. They were laser cut and they were oversize for HO but worked well for me in O scale.

The bench lathe is an HO scale model from Rio Grande Models that I built back in 1976. Works well for O scale.

Most of the other items were built using photos of equipment I found on the internet.

Darryl,

Your shop has a great rural America look, maybe with a change in headwear for the one guy for the Northeast. The scene has an everyday anywhere feel.

Great job on the various tables, cabinets, tools and the figures.

I enjoy seeing your work.

Mike

That is fabulous scratch building Darryl. Weathering and details at its best! Nice job with the sign as well.

Very NICE!!!
Love the large open door to allow inside viewing!
Your front is more impressive than the original Knotts shop.
