" As I actually work on the model, I would be happy to post photos of my progress.
But I am still doing research right now.
The particular prototype I want to try to follow is the Kentucky Mine in Sierra City, California.
The Western Scale Model kit does not follow my prototype well enough to just build the kit."
How's the research going, on how to fit the stamp-mill machinery into your prototype ?
I'm guessing some of the machinery will fit without too much modding ?
Your mining buildings from another Thread, look like you've done similar structures before.
Great hilly scenery ! ... Perfect for a stamp-mill.
I did not have enough information to do an exact copy of the Kentucky Mine mill.
The attached photo shows the interior at this point.
I put this in the living room in a book shelf and will add the exterior at some point.
The stamp mill kits offered by Wild West Models are great.
One benefit of building this mill is the better understanding of how all the components work together.
Darryl, you have done an outstanding job on this machine.
It is my goal to build one too.
I have loved stamp mills since I was a kid.
I couldn't even image the noise of say a 100 stamp mill and its assorted machinery
(crushers, shaker tables, amalgamating pans, etc), and how the ground must have shook.
