Larry,
It's been a couple weeks since I checked into JD's. The forge room is really coming along! The forge hammer , forge , and crane look great!

Here's a small update:



The walls have been glued into place and the back wall has a metal heat shield made from tin foil and weathered behind the hammer. The stamping block was painted black to represent black iron which most were made from to be resistant to the high heat. Also added some ash to represent the pieces of metal left behind after hammering. The concrete pad was made from a piece of foam core painted grey and weathered.



Here is a birds eye view of the Hammer. There is a small brass rod which was glued into the back of the hammer and painted black. Also added a support board against the back wall over the heat shield to attach the other end of the rod to. This arrangement supports the hammer and helps with keeping it up straight due to it now being top heavy. The hammer has not been glued in place yet until I add piping for the boiler connection. Need to order some more parts before that can happen. Next will be to put in the forge crane at least temporarily until the hammer piping is added.

That's where I'm currently at with the addition. Any comments/suggestions welcome.

Larry, it looks great. What did you use for the ashes? They add a lot to the detail.

Roland thank you. I use a course sifted wood ash which still have small pieces left in it.
