    • Mike, the coal box by the shed is some leftover tool box from a Bachmann locomotive of sorts... broom is from a little Swedish company actually...

      Peter, the telephone number style was derived from a vintage photo from Bar Harbor where a store had the number written like that...

      Got the chimneys done, and the front porch rooflet too... I'll install some steps and railings down to the road when I landscape later.

        • Troels,

          I just watched the latest video,(Pg. 54).

          Our computers at the office are 'access denied' and we cannot watch anything like, videos, streaming (music or games), etc.

          Soooo... I have to wait until I get home to see them.

          Looked real good.

          • The telephone number is quite accurate for the late 1940's and early 1950's. I remember our phone number was 253. You just picked up the hand set and asked the operator for the number you wanted to call. We were thrilled when we got a telephone with a rotary dial. No more talking to the operator, unless you wanted to call another city.

            • Rob, in my youth I once had to teach a Scottish operator to pronounce 6280 in danish (not easy!!), as no-one on my local Danish central spoke english... took some attempts and swearing before they got the line patched through ;-) We kept the local, manned centrals until the end of the 70ies.

              • Troels, it is inspiring to see all the little structures you have been making.

                Suggestion, when you open up a new tread, why don't you post the links to all your previous threads, so all we have to do it go back to page 1 of the current thread to find the links to all of your other threads.

                • Troels,

                  As I said earlier, I watched your latest video and was very pleased with it.

                  I also noticed another video called 'Winter', also by you. Are the pictures in that video around or near your home ? It is really beautiful.

                  Makes me shiver.

                  • Jim, I'll do that!

                    Rich, I shot the "Winter" scenes just a couple of kilometers from here, by or near the local river. We live in a very beautiful area... nothing wildly spectacular, but quiet forests and fields alternating, with rolling hills, lakes and rivers, and not that far from the sea either. Ideal for a landscape painter! I hate winter with a passion, but it is good both for video, photography and not least, for painting.

                    • Troels, your surroundings are so different from the desert I have lived in most of my life, but it sounds (and looks) beautiful. Your winter scenes capture the stark majesty of the season, although I agree the cold is not welcome!

                      • Verne, I wouldn't swap our winters for a desert, but the shorter winters of nothern France would do nicely, thank you :-) We wintered two seven month "winters" in Paris, when we lived aboard a boat, and after all the year in Scandinavia the longer days, and milder climes were just what we needed!

                        Although I probably won't be modeling tomorrow, I have designed the next structure for Crabapple Cove... a vulcanizing shop.

                        I have vivid memories of such a place from my childhood... the heat, humidity and smell... we went there to have our rubber boots patched. The guys were carving new threads in refurbished tyres, making tractor tubes and other rubber related stuff... I imagine the Crabapple VULCAN workers making sailors boots, pre-PVC bouys of a sort, aprons for the seafood industry, rubber flooring etc.

                              • Now that's an industry I would never have thought of. A great choice.
