That is a very rare and endangered example of a paintbrush bush.  In the past mature stems were picked from it and used as brushes.  Owing to the greed of some painters in the past this one is the last one of its kind.

the paintbrush tree revealed. Lawton, there are 2 hand carts -1 flatbed and the other a tanker. yes, I like all these basic technologies that are made from lost and found materials. really good examples are third world weapons,  a bit of tube that has been fashioned into a lethal weapon.
cheers, Kim.

Kim,
you don't fool me. That's no paintbrush tree. It is a coffee bush.
And your modeling is some kind of three-dimensional painting. I like it a lot.

Hi all.
yes, South Creek actually exists and it is very close to where I live not a very inviting place a few creepy crawlers but a good reference point for my model. after being pushed around for a while the power transformer is beginning to fit in.
cheers, Kim.

Hi all.
A small change in scale and direction still 1/35 to 1/32 scale but running on 16.5 gauge track.
for the time being, I will include it with South Creek but in the future when I have built more running stock I will start a separate file.
so I small people carrier work in progress -styrene, wood, and wire I like it a lot but I feel the seats need some work.i will sit on it for a while.
cheers, Kim.

     Having worked for a public utility for a period of time early in my working life, I can say that you have nailed the transformer.  Only criticism of it is that since it is waiting to be used somewhere, there needs to be a tag on it indicating that utility knows it is in inventory.
     I will enjoy watching as the "rickshaw" developes.

Looks great Kim, but I'm afraid you'll crush it if you sit on it.    Wink

24 hours and a bit of work later the little wagon is beginning to take on a bit of personality.
