Awesome pics, John!  Love the peacock and the landing bird on the implement.  Great farm scene.

You had to position that chopping block for all those poor birds to watch on? What a cruel maker you are!


Craig


Actually, when that chopping block is being used the chickens would all be in the coop. Especially after the farmer chased down the chicken heading for the dinner table.

Update:  Life has been getting in the way of my modeling the past few weeks.  I have managed only a couple hours here and there.  I hope to get back at it later this week.

I took the lid off the box and got started on my SRMW Sayles Mill build, today.  The first step is to complete the positioning of the base board on the layout and make the necessary changes.



Here is a picture of the site for this build on my layout.  The baseboard is built for option 1 in the Sayles Mill directions. As always, I will be making a few changes.  The biggest will be to add the landforms on this side of the mill pond. The structures that will go between the mill site and the mainline track also have to be planned before starting the build.  I will be doing some mockups to determine line of site etc. My first step is to markup some pictures on my iPad - a great project when I'm traveling.





I ended up the day with the baseboard on my workbench starting to do some dry wall section setups to establish build heights and final building arrangement.
