    My latest House had to have a stone chimney,so I decided to use real stone. My son son was pouring concrete,so I sorted through the aggregate he was using and found some small chips, Glued them to a wood block shaped like a chimney filled the gaps with
    white wood glue to look like the mortar and when dry painted it light grey

    Absolutely beautiful Jimmy. Rock work and shingles shows your abilities to model very realisticly.
    The road scene looks like you have captured the highfeld very well

    That rock retaining wall looks like it's near Gettysburg. Reminds me of those stone walls all over Little and Big Round Top. Great work.

    That looks great Jimmy! The house with the stone fireplace reminds me of a lodge I stayed at "up North" along Lake Superior!

    The bridge on the disappearing road

    These models are in HO went back to it due to failing eye sight for N gauge modeling
    The bridge is across Backcreek which also disappears into the background The road surface is sand obtained in the Namib desert nice for roads as it is extremely fine

    Beautiful Work!

    That is some really nice stonework, Jimmy. I love the little bridge, too. There's nothing quite like a little one-lane bridge on a back country road....:)
