The clothes line in the back yard can be sold as solar as well as wind powered.  Both sources in tandem will dry your clothes, but the one which resembles a TV antenna is more of a challenge and I feel would look better.

Hi all.
Nick when I posted the picture of my brickwork I thought about how good your modelling was especially the brickwork,.My effort is like the example that you see in pictures of building houses in a week using completely unskilled labour to do the bricklaying.
Lawton don't say that I dont do anything for you at the great effort I have expanded the size to fit in a clothesline to be known in the future as Lawton's dirty laundry.
cheers.

Good one, Kim Smiley

Lawton, you are more correct than you might realize. We bought one of those 'TV antenna' clothes dryers about 15 years ago and the box it came in was actually labeled "Solar Clothes Dryer" in bold letters.

Solar clothes drier I have no idea do you have a picture,
Usually, in this part of the world, solar clothes drier is putting the washing on the line and watching the weather.

Kim, the "solar clothes dryer" Bill is talking about is a rack like the one shown here:

Kim,

the scene is getting more and more character. Your kind of realism has a strong appeal to me; it's not a "photographic" but rather atmosphere driven approach. Whenever David Lynch decides to produce a third season of Twin Peaks he should ask you for being his scene builder.
This plywood shack is really something.

Cheers,
Volker

P.S.: I forgot to nitpick: To me the corrugated roof's 'waves' seem a bit out of scale, being to small?

Volker may have written the best description of what makes Kim's work so terrific. Even though his native language is German, Volker expressed himself in English more accurately than I could. -- Russ

I would think that The Narrow Gauge & Industrial Modelling Review could be interested.
