Russell Mining Co. Mini Scenes

Mini scenes bring any project alive.   The wagon is 3/8n20, I made for a trip to the USA. When I returned, it had fell apart. I found it last week and chucked it on the layout as it was. I had junk parts stored in the cupboard and it gave me idea. Hence the mini scene. I admit this little “quickie” took a few hours to complete, over a number of days....



The rope is another detail most modelers like to add. It’s cheap string found in any fabric store. Run white glue down the string and let hang to dry for an hour to make it stiff. Then form rope to suit. Another “quickie” project on the run.

Various size and coloured “ropes” found in fabric stores..
