Finished a storage building for the Appetite Mine. It measures 8'x15' with 9' ceilings. The building has a foam core sub shell with strip wood and siding made from cereal box card stock, a idea picked up from Bob R.

This first shot shows the left side.

And the front, showing the double sliding doors. The roof is removable so I can finish the interior.

I can think of more comfortable places to lay down on the job than railroad ties.

Larry,

Not being familiar with the region that you're modeling do you find the stark mountains that you have to be on the bland side?  I have a canyon area with high cliffs that I'm modeling and I just feel that it needs some oomph.  I'm modeling basically desert scenery so I have to keep any plants on the sparse side.

Storage shelves need to be filled just as soon as I can find things to fill them with. The front wall is also removable, for now. It will be glued in place once the interior is finished.  LG

Michael, I agree, my needles are rather bland looking. Greenery of various types will be added as time allows. As you can see from this shot ( photographer unknown) of a section of the needles, the needles them selves have little to no vegetation on them. At the base is where all the plant life is found.   Larry G

This is the Needles Eye Tunnel, ( photographer unknown) showing that little vegetation is present. This shot also shows that tunnels piercing the Needles, much as my tunnels do, is actually done here in the Black Hills.  LG

Larry,

Thanks for posting those photos.  I'd have to say then you are right on the spot with your scenery.  Maybe a few pine trees at the base of your mountains. 

The area I'm modeling has no trees; just some scrub.  Well, like they say, it's a work in progress.
