Thanks, Tom. Seeing some of your work was a motivating factor for me.
Jim, I am a little late to the party, but as usual your ability to capture the essence of an object or scene is superb.
OK .. Have to ask!
Did you fabricate that boom?
How did you make the traveling block above the bucket?
The boom, steam engine and block came from a Jordan steam crane kit. I cheated a bit. Don't tell anyone.
Wow, wow. That is really neat!
Thanks Tom and Mike! All you guys are very kind and that's what makes it rewarding to post pics of completed projects on this site.
Wow! That is awesome.
Jim, O scale is calling.........come to the light, come to the light......... http://www.locopainter.com/store/product.php?id=1285
That's cool! I could use that on my On30 log tram project. I wonder what year those came into use? Oh, I found out the early gas powered ones where in use in the 1920s. Perfect.
I just read in the news that Zalma, MO has ceased to be an incorporated town. I hate to hear that.
Yea that is bad, even more services will stop, not good.
Hmmm. Any rationale, Jim? Do you or anyone know if the meat locker's still there? We had a second cousin(?) who had acreage outside of town; we'd visit at least once a year to buy our side of beef from him, and then would go as a family to pick it up at the Zalma locker.
Busy day at Brownwood. The pickup is my latest Jordan kit modification.
In Bob Broeg's St. Louis Cardinals' Encyclopedia, he notes former Cubs/Yankees manager Joe McCarthy was asked who the perfect baseball player was, to which McCarthy replied "What couldn't Frankie Frisch do?" I think of this story when I look at this and ask myself "What can't Jim James do?"
Splendidly done, Jim. Would enjoy seeing a write-up or additional details on how you went about it.
Thats great stuff there Jim, man your the Master of the old Jordan kits, just outstanding modeling.
Excellent work, there Jim. Excellent.
I finished the Greenbrier Cemetery tonight.
I truly wish that I had your skills and patience
