    Being a farm boy, this has to be my favourite scratch-build yet. Looking at this, I can almost hear the noise of the elevator, match that with the rumble of empty hopper wagons, and the smell of freshly harvested soy beans. Just AWESOME!!

    I've just followed the building of the mill from day one. All I have to say is WOW! You've done an outstanding job. What a great addition to your layout. Even the primer looks great.

    Well, 7 months later and I finally have some progress to report on my mill project. Yes, the weather's been nice enough to airbrush in the garage for awhile now, I know....I did get a bit sidetracked by the In-n-Out scratchbuild project, and once ball season started I've been at my kid's games every weekend over the summer. But so much for excuses....here's the mill with paint on it. It's WAY too new and clean looking right now, weathering is next, plus getting the windows and doors installed, and the lettering on the office building.
