Steven, I did try the FKA Keil Line chair from Scale City to start with

but I found it just a bit too modern and solid for my taste. Good starting point though.

I will say it again...very nicely done.

A really great little structure.

Hi Doug,
I did warn you about that stampede of Moosies - I hope the Gun Shop has plenty of ammo, so that you can convert some of 'em to venison to feed the music festival participants :bg:

Doug has the happy knack of looking at stuff from elsewhere other than railway stuff and then turning it into something that complements his railroad and adds to the narrative of Updah. For that he gets another :moose::moose::moose::moose::moose: from me.

Stand by for more incoming Moosies when the Gun Shop breaks cover. :2t: Stay tuned - you ain't seen nuttin' yet

Reg and John, thanks for the continuing support.

As for the gunsmith's, it's based on the same Clever Models templates as the barber's shop and the same balsa and wooden coffee stirrers method of construction. The sign is again something downloaded from Google Images, modified in Paint to show the name and in this case printed onto a self adhesive sticky label.

The interior is fitted out with a counter, gun racks for display and an illuminated workbench for gunsmith Samuel to fettle his weapons.

The counter is just balsa lined with green baize and clear packaging material.

The weapons are from a sprue from Tinminis http://tinminis.com/TinManBases.html

The gun racks are made from wooden coffee stirrers (I do love that material!) with track spikes as holders for the rifles and shotguns, also from the Tinminis sprue.

The workbench is again just balsa with an LED as a lamp with a washer as a shade and various white metal and plastic castings and bits of odd shaped material from the bits box as tools.

So Samuel has a cosy and reasonably well lit place to transact both his gun sales and fettling.

Meanwhile the last train has left a delivery of more new stock in boxes salvaged from a Tamiya German Field Maintenance set and painted to look like worn wood - hopefully!

The consignment is about to be shifted into the shop by assistant Bucking Horse  - that is after he has finished his conversation with rancher Jed about the restored Civil War cannon (a slightly upgraded Bachmann offering) on display outside the shop to attract the tourists and their wallets during the festival.

That's about it for the gunsmith's and I'll move on to the general store next.

Doug, I looked at "coach" seats for a chair, but I was not happy either, never gave the GL a glance.

Now the gun store... LOVE IT! I'll take the "pepper box." There is a cannon, a six pound Mountain Howitzer, at a local antique store that I covet, but it cannot quite compare with those old 6 pound field pieces that Samuel has in stock... any idea what he is asking? You can never have too many cannons in this day and age.:)

Thanks Jose and Steven, it was the GL seat end, the arm rest and frame that turned me onto them as a barber's seat possibility. It was sufficiently ornate to be interesting and pass as a "metal" piece. As for the cannon, whilst they're only just over $5 from Bachmann, Samuel thinks they're priceless as a tourist attraction!

Reg, you're very kind and thanks Woodie. As I've said elsewhere, much of what I do has been inspired by your past and present layouts and most definitely the scratch building.
