I took Abbey out for a short walk yesterday. goodness the wind was cool. I also worked on the Winchester and finished it but I think I'll redo the lever as it looks a bit too big for the 5 inch long rifle. When I'm happy with it I'll go to macro mode on the camera and post a photo here. The next item on my agenda will be the covered wagon I picked up at a garage sale, I wouldn't touch the one I inherited from my uncle. It will remain unfinished as he left it when he passed away.
I'm also going to keep my eye open for another horse the proper scale to pull the red river cart, which I'm going to transform into a gun carriage, and cannon. I also have to find a small man to ride with the lady I have for the covered wagon. The silly thing a retired man does to pass the time! Once the rolling stock is complete it will be the log cabin Alley suggested. I may even make a log Coral to keep the tiny pigs I used to have in my office. People used to laugh at my collection of tiny toy animals I used to decorate my office with. I also have to pay a visit to the local model railway club to find out what the use for grass in their railways. It should work fine in my diorama of the settling if the west. I already have small plastic figurines of Tonto and the Lone Ranger to keep the peace.
on another note it looks like the prairies are still wild. I saw an ad for an episode of National Geographic on outlaw bikers. It sounds like it was filmed in Winnipeg. What a good tourist attraction that will be for the Manitoba capital city.Come to Winnipeg and watch the Hells Angels shoot the Los Brravos. Be sure to bring your body armor to protect you from drive by shootings.
