Christmas hiatus

This will be the last post before Christmas. I'll be back sometime after, or early in the new year. Thank you for dropping by and spending some of your time here. It's much appreciated, and I have particularly enjoyed all the conversations that have taken place. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

  1. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays for you and your family. Your blog is a regular and I'm always amazed at what you are able to unearth about Mr. Moore's legacy. The man and his work are truly exceptional. Your posts are a great help for my 3Dprinting ventures. Recently I added some more models (based on his work) you can see here :

    I baptized the Molasses Mine the "Wizard's Distillery"
    Keep up the good work .... CHEERS

    2. Your models are looking great! Is that Morton's Stone Works in there? I'm hoping to build that one in 2017.

  2. Cool 3D models! Nice work! I didn't see what scale they were in, though....

  3. Yes, it's Morton's Stone but heavily simplified to keep it within the 3cm x 10cm boundaries I need for my wargames so they fit within a hexside grid of 10cm hexes. You might also be able to recognize amongst others, the Red Eye Saloon, The UP windmill with handcar shed, the Chair & Desk Factory, Bunn's Feed & Seed plant, The Jones Chemical Co (also heavily modified), The Three towered station with Russian onion-shaped spires, Ceresota flour mill, Butz Milling & Feed Co with four silos and of course the Molasses Mine. More to come in the future. Sometimes it's necessary to backdate the models as eg cyclone dust collectors did not exist before 1945 and Mr. Moore was a great fan of these. I usually substitute them with other features. I'll probably try my hand at part of your Barrel & Marble construction too.

    1. They all look great! Ah, Mr. Buschel's Barrel & Marble Works....I haven't thought about that one in years. Can't wait to see your spin on it. I should take some better pictures of it over the holidays.

    1. Merry Christmas! I'm a failure at keeping New Year's resolutions, but I'm game for giving it a try :-) Stay tuned.
