Great offer from Big Larry to give you a whole farm or animals.

Larry, I like the fence, and good to see some scenery progress. Trees can be hit & miss. But keep trying.

Thanks Rob. The fence was fun to build and I was pleased to be able to make a working gate. The offer from Larry for the farm animals was fantastic! He's selling them for a friend. When I saw how many different animals and the quantity, along with the price, I couldn't pass it up. About the only other things that I'll need to buy are a few people.
Yes the trees are a little tricky but now I think that I'm on the right track. It looks more like what I saw in the video. When I get the latex rubber shipment, then I can progress and hopefully will be much more successful this time around.
Thanks for stopping by.

Been working on the pig/chicken barn the past couple of days:



The roof has been glued to the building and the gable ends of the roof fixed to hide the corrugated look. Also glued the barn to the diorama.



The pig pen was constructed using scale 4x4 posts and 1x6 boards; all were given a coat of A&I. Then everything was glued into place. The chicken fence was made using a strip from a netted bag and sprayed painted grey to hopefully looks like "chicken wire". The posts were cut from skewers and given a coat of A&I. The netting was glued to the posts which were in turn glued to the diorama. Not sure if I like the chicken wire look or not; that may change. Also a ramp was made and glued into place to give the chickens a way in and out of the coupe.



Found a stick in the yard and cut a bunch of scale 2 ft. pieces which were then glued together to form a pile of firewood which was placed beside the smoke house. Need to have the wood near by.
That's about it for now and thanks for stopping by. Any comments/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Jerry thank you. I'm waiting on the latex rubber to arrive then I can finish the tree.

Rick thank you. The farm is starting to take shape a little at a time.

Philip thank you. Besides having some photos; my Dad, the last couple of years that he was alive, would go into stories about growing up on the Farm. Because the Farm was gone before I was born I thought that it would be nice to try to recreate how it may have been. It is great fun. Try it and see for yourself.

Larryc a nice build to honor the grandparents. I am a kid from Chicago and while I am used to “factory” dairy farms.I have never been to a family farm. But I am liking what I see and the helpful information from the viewers. Thanks for sharing.

Tom thank you for the compliment. A "factory" farm, now that's a new one to me. I've worked on a few farms and their pretty much the same with the livestock being priority #1. That's the money making part of the farm. Glad you like what your seeing and thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions about the farm, please feel free to ask.

Looking better all the time Larry.

Now if you could eliminate the wood paneling in the backdrop...

Thank you Carl. I've been thinking about the paneling showing; I may have to order a backdrop which would tie in with the farm. Although I may try and do something on my own for a backdrop so we'll have to see what I can come up with.
