Paul,
I remember this one from MM. Is that an Arsenal M Tiger II? Looking forward to seeing this one complete.:thumb2:

Yes it is Rick. Beautiful tracks, & turret details, but deck & rear details are very muddy.
Just don't look for the bellows Dzohn, I've hidden it so you don't overheat. Post & beam to follow. I'll have to find a chair for you. PaulE

Hi Paul
Unlike Rick I don't remember this so nice and new for me. As always your attention to detail is a trademark of your work.

Lovely work so far Paul. Any chance that half of the roof could be detachable? T'would be a shame to cover up all the great details you have added to the interior. Including Dzhon's chair.:tongue-out3:

Thank you gentlemen. It is in fact Rick.. You can see it lying next to the base in the last three pics. Ian Simpson did a 1/87 dio with the portal crane to lift turrets which was amazing, but the crane looked to be beyond me. PaulE

Nice, Paul. Checking out the little tools and blacksmith details particularly Dzohn's chair which I could use for my 72nd builds.

Cheers,
Richard

I believe it's from a ROCO 'officer's meeting,' 3 or 4 figs, table & chair. Might be a little small for 1/72. The bench vise, compressor, o&a tanks, A frames and chainfalls would work for sure, Richard.

That's a very comfortable looking chair, with the forge to keep me warm esp now the temperature is falling. Thank you Paul.
Love the building and the removed section.
Great work.
Dzhon.

Paul, I Know what you mean. That turret crane looks the mother to build! Never bought one for that reason alone. Nice load in the trailer although the loft is a bit bare...some straw and a couple of chickens perhaps...the ones with feathers! :tongue-out2:

Chickens eaten long ago. Was trying to find info on baled hay/straw in the area/period. Were they square, rectangle, cylinder, dimensions? Hollywood not a good source. Not knowing a blacksmith I'm guessing scrap iron or other raw materials & seconds may be stored there. PaulE

Paul.
I'd have thought the straw would have been stacked at first
like this until thrashed, then stored in a large straw or hay stack, or shed like this. This next photo is from a German farming museum.

Ones in the open were stored in the open , just a large round one as this one I found.


Gives you a rough idea of the size. HTH
