Philip thank you for your comment. Cats certainly have a way of finding soft dirt to use as a litter box...hey, free fertilizer.

Tyson thanks for the "thumbs up".

Looks very agricultural and real. I can almost smell the dirt, and other things. Very nice.

Rick thank you. It will slowly be coming to an end before too long. I have found a place in the room that will be it's permanent home soon.

Michael thank you for your kind words. It's been a fun build as well as helping me to improve my skills.

Jerry thank you. If I can find the plants I just may "plant" some veggies latter on.

Larry, the farm is progressing well. Now the animals and critters will have a place to stay this winter. Keep up the good work and most of all, have fun!

Starting to add some of the details to the farm, along with the Climax A build, so here is an update.





These are some white metal casting tires that I ordered from Crow River. They were sprayed painted with flat black and weathered with a 50/50 mixture of raw sienna and water.





The milk cans are resin castings from San Juan Miniatures. After a little sanding they were spray painted with flat gray then hit with a coat of A&I to make them look as close to metal as possible. I'll be adding details like this, a little at a time, for quite awhile until I'm satisfied with the look of the Farm.
That's where I'm at for now. Any comments/suggestions welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

Philip thank you. Most farm cats can smell milk a mile away and this one is no exception. Of course out of the photo the dog is standing not too far way so the cat is on red Alert.
