  • Wow, that turned out very nicely.
    I like that weathering a lot.

    • Ron, super nice job finishing the model. I learned a long time ago that photos dictate what still needs to be done. In way of critique, it would be more realistic if smoke was coming out of boiler and the engine flywheel was spinning, and... Attaboy! ~mike

      • Ron,

        That is a terrific mini-scene all by itself. Everything has a good used but not abused look.

        You're making great progress.

            • Ron I like the plumbing you did nice and simple. Great job.

              I need to do mine except I put the infeed to the engine on the wrong side so I guess this where imagination comes in to play.

              • Thanks Rick, Mike, Mike, Philip, Larry and Jerry.

                Glad everyone likes the weathering, I was thinking of adding more to it but now that the scene is nearly complete I'm very happy with it.

                Friscomike, the pictures were taken on a Sunday, the only day the mill isn't running.

                Jerry, backwoods operators did what they needed to do to make things works, I don't think "standard practice" was an issue.

                • Very nice looking machinery, great job with the weathering and color choices. Now that's a mini scene I need placed into my logging company.

                      • Ron, the scene just keeps getting better and better. It is going to look great when everything is put together.

                            • Philip, Maybe, you didn't break a sweat, but I sure did. The major victory was not causing any injuries while chopping the wood.

                              Craig, I think that question was meant for me, if not then Philip can answer it too.

                              The two tractors used for this came with the original SierraWest Tractor Repair Shed Kit. The Bates tractor is available from Wisemen Model services but I don't know anyone who makes the Cat. Tamiya offers a model of the Komatsu G40 Bulldozer (kit # MM #65) that is still available. See picture below.

                            • Final update before I leave for Virginia........

                              After chopping wood I had to move the wood pile to the back of the building to the boiler.
