This pic is of the mini diorama at the north east outside corner of the layout. It is slated for enhancement in the form of additional trees. This diorama is “famous” with the little people because it has the minions that are most difficult for them to find on the layout.
A while back club member Jim Williams was given an old weather vane. It was given to him by his mother-in-law. Jim recently brought it into the layout and offered to loan it to the Club. We accepted his offer with alacrity. President Chuck Whitlock took it to his workbench and before you could say, “Jack Robinson” it was cleaned, painted black with gold embellishments! Next in on “the act” was Lonnie Dickson who assisted in building the support for the weather vane and then installing it. And, here it is flying high …..
Hereyou can see it atop the workshop ………
Pretty neat eh?
And, thanks to Jim for the pics,
