    Very nice, Jim. A lot of design work there.

    Thanks George, a lot of hair pulling with getting that double cone roof to draw and print as one piece.

      Thanks Mike, As I look at the 'overhead view' the gravel path is bugging me. Too much deviation, and the end that meets the 'up' part of the ramp, is weird. Some rework to place it, would be necessary.

        • Dave and Bruce, Thank you guys.

          Dave, I'm 'getting' the 3D drawing / printing part, but am still trying to get the overall 'presentation' piece to look smooth to me.

          • Nice work Jim. Regarding the grass, did you use a static grass aplicator or was that done by just sifting?

              • Rich, I built one of those DIY applicator for about $20. Amazon/eBay high voltage module, some PVC pipe (also used for the silo innards, a Walmart snack container, and a circle cut out of a strainer. About an hours worth of assembly, and much nicer than the Harbor Freight flyswatters I've seen. You'll need a 12 volt wall wart to provide the power.

                  • Hi Jim,

                    Thanks for the info on making your own grassmaster, but I have a Noch Grassmaster I got on ebay this year. I was asking because your grass looks great, but I haven't had the time to test mine yet. I should do a test before I actually try it out on a model though. Thanks

                    • After seeing the job done by a couple of the flyswatter mods, I didn't think it was worth the effort. The one I did came off of a Youtube video. I too, waited for weeks until the static grass showed up. My buddy showed me a slick trick, after the glue has dried, put a paper towel over the nozzle of a small shop-vac and the unstuck pieces are about 98% recovered. Just make sure the paper towel doesn't get sucked into the vacuum. :erm: [{D]

                      • This is really turning out nicely. The model is looking good too.
