Wood’s mill will be complete in the next couple of days. I want it ready for Trainfest in Milwaukee.
One hold up has been the waterwheel itself. The horizontal slats that catch the water on the prototype are angled to catch the water like a bucket. Some waterwheels have flat boards that are just straight up and down. I couldn’t decide whether to be accurate to the prototype or make the model easier to build. After looking at a lot of prototypes I’ve decided that the easier way is just as prototypical as the hard way, so that’s the way I’m going. With this decision made there’s nothing holding me back from commiting to the final state of the kit.

As you may remember, I have moved into a 30ft RV with the idea of traveling between shows more often. We have hit a snag. A small windshield crack has kept me off the road because I can’t get registration before I fix the windshield. That piece of glass is over $700.00 bucks and with our sales currently being so down, It’s not going to get fixed anytime soon.
I wonder if I can crowd fund the windshield?
I think you will like these. They are a bit different than usual. The first two are tile floors that you just cut to any size and shape. The third is even more unique. It’s an Ochre colored Wallpaper with Brown stripes and dark wood Crown Moulding and Wainscoting that you can layer on top of the wallpaper to give it some depth of dimension. The HO and N scale sizes get really delicate, so it may not be for everyone and if you don’t like it or can’t make it work for you, let me know. The walpaper comes 16’ tall so you can trim it to fit any wall height.
