Time available for modeling continues to be hit or miss, but here are a couple small projects recently done that at least are advancing some progress (and it's nice to see some details filling in as previously imagined).

A pair of utility poles from bamboo skewers and Rix crossarms

I like the Mobil tanker filling the tank at the small country store  ;D

Thanks, Craig, guess that's a natural for you  ;D .

My son had a job for several summers at a little Mobil station on a small island when he was in college. The tanker and pump mark that experience.


The utility poles, and the entire scene, look very good. Thanks for posting. -- Russ

Thanks, Russ & Ray. It's small stuff, but it's stuff getting done.

Another tiny project to keep things moving forward.
With winter around the corner the pulpwood crew is taking a break from splitting firewood.
Not the best photo. Tried to use the low sun coming through the window but wound up needing to do a lot futzing to get something "passable".

"futzing"? Couldn't find that in my dictionary. Oh well, I've been futzing with my sternwheeler model for over two years now!😉

Thanks Bill, it confirms I've been futzing with my model then.🙃
