Hello John, I hope that working at the hobby helps you through a very tough time. You did a great job with the farm scene. Like everyone else, I love the junk hill, but I can't believe that nobody has commented on the peacock in the chicken coop. Where on earth did you find that peacock ?    Jeff

Thank you for following along and the kind words. The peacock was a find at a train show years ago. I have been collecting farm details for many years in anticipation of building this scene.

Beautiful work John. Love that peacock. Hard to believe that he's HO scale from the colorful tail. The night scenes are great looking. If you didn't know it was a model you'd swear it was real.

John,
 The family farm diorama on the S&S RR is some of your best modeling to date and is very well done.

Thank you for the kind words - the peacock is HO scale - they are very big when they do their dance with the feathers spread out.

So I took a lot of pictures from different angles and different mini scenes.  The following is picture overload for those that are interested. I hope you enjoy them.
