Yet again another fantastic build, but looking at the photo of the real pond, I notice that on the decking of the house are a couple of rocking chairs, are they next ?

Wow, MAX! What a great link. That sure shows the lily's that I'd like to do. I do have a different product than Magic Water, but we shall see.

Alan,
I love to make the rocking chairs, just haven't figured out how yet. They are so bloomin small, and when you have several vertical pieces so close together they have to be perfect or it will look yucky.

Just because I haven't tried, doesn't mean I won't.

Wayne

Not much time left before we head up north for a month, so I am looking for projects that don't take a long time to complete. On that note I decided to make the dinner bell that sits atop an eight foot high pole, located next to the garage, and of course every farm house needs it's mail box and newspaper box out front next to the road.

The first picture shows a little bit about how I made the dinner bell. I did not remove it from the rod until it was sanded as best I could. The second picture shows it all done except for painting of course. The red color you see is automotive spot putty. That was the thinnest material I could think of to try and fill the sanding grooves. Those sanding grooves, by the way, are made from my fingerprints. Sand paper was just too stiff and coarse to even think about using. I just spun it in my fingers to try and shape it. The post is 1 1/4" tall, to give you some perspective.

The last picture is pretty self explanatory, just a mail box and a newspaper box. They are 1/2" tall. The base will be covered once it's on the layout.





I do believe it will look much better when painted. The macro setting on that camera with the lens 2 inches away, just shows up everything, most of which can't be seen by the human eye! :roll:

Oh well, I still like them!

Wayne

They look good to me Wayne i think anything that small is difficult to reproduce exactly as you say under the camera zoom it shows things you would not normally see with your eye. Just remember on the layout you will only be viewing with your eyes.

cheers Brian

I'm glad you put some text in there, Wayne.  Given your skills level, I first thought you were modelling mushrooms for the field :exclam

I'm happy you are all enjoying these little things. I should have counted the number of times I dropped that mail box flag, and every time I picked it up it was flipped over the wrong way. :twisted: Now you can flip a coin and heads will come up 50/50, but not that flag!

Wayne

It is that time of year again, where we take our trek up north to Michigan. This year however it will only be for about a month. We will be leaving around the 9th of July.

Since that date is rapidly approaching, I am reluctant to start any new projects on the layout. I have however done some painting of the projects I've been posting here.

Have a look!




I have added some field stone to the water garden. I am still missing many stones, but I will need to permanently mount it on the layout in order to add those. I need to find some smaller stones to fill in the gaps that have been created with the larger stones. I have them, it's just a matter of separating them from the bag.
Those small "things" in the bottom of the water garden are supposed to be water lily pots. I hoping the "water" will make them look more realistic.



Now back to that "Honey Do List" that needs to be done before leaving.
Wayne
