1. Ladies & gentlemen, I would like to announce that there is a new photo gallery section. You can create your own personal photo gallery (to include setting up your own albums). You can even post videos. You can also post and share photos in the galleries of others (if that person allows such), as well . ENJOY!!!

    There will be a group of buildings to make the ranch scene.
    This will start with the family stone house.
    I decided on a ranch as we need the beef without worrying about mad cow disaster.

    Chris, the cattle will be LPBs too. "Little plastic beef" Low in cholesterol but a bit hard to digest.
    The walls and windows are in place. Next comes the stone work. This will take some time.

    Wow Robin. I've been off the computer for a couple of days so my daughter could do college papers, and I come back and you've finished the mine and gone on to a ranch!

    Dick, it isn't siding just pencil lines every 1/8th inch on cerealboard to help me place the rocks.
    shaygetz the stone work will be similar to the machinery warehouse but I am going to try to make it look somewhat different if I can. It is taking my time to place the rocks. Not even halfway yet.

    OK you task masters. Once the basic blocks are in place I need to add mortar. Don't quite know how I will go about doing that yet. Then comes the painting.

    You turn your back for just a moment ... and he finishes a complete factory complex, adds a source for fuel and then starts on feeding the population. I get exhausted just trying to keep up with the threads. :D :D :D :) :)

    Great work Robin. I have another bookmark to add to the "reference list"

    :) :) :)

    Robin, what is the size of the blocks? Are you making them uniform or varying the lengths?:) :)
