    This is a small dairy farm that utilizes items scrounged from bottle caps (silo) and kit bashed (?) from Walthers lumber yard (barn). I simply placed two of the lumber sheds face to face to make the small barn...pretty much a "no-brainer." For the silo I glued a number of bottle caps on top of each other.

    Nice job upguy!
    I'm a bit of a kitbashing nut myself. Sort of a "hobby within a hobby" for me.
    You better fence in that cattle though, before they wander into the path of the Amtrak! ;)

    It's great to see creative efforts as they produce some of the best results. Good job upguy

    Yes, I am aware that the cows may stray, but it is prototypical in a twisted sort of way.... See my thread in The Real Thing under the topic Railroad Casualty. :eek:

    upguy,what bottle caps did you use for the silo? That looks like just what I need for my farm scene.

    I used the bottle caps from Watkins, gourmet spices for the lower part of the silo, and the cap from Watkins, vanilla shampoo for the cap. The sizes that I used may be discontinued by Watkins, so the only way to get them may be from a Watkins dealer that has some old stock.

    The good news wife used to sell Watkins Products, so let me know if you can't get them from a source near you. I can provide the bottles (even some full ones if you want the product). Just email what you need. :D
