Default Saratoga Mine Diorama

Hi fellas,

Several years back Malcom Furlow built a mine that I thought was a great looking model. I built this from plans in NG Gazette.

The main building is built board-by-board from scale 2x8's with individual 1x2 battens. All the other assemblies are built board-by-board using the appropriate size scale lumber.

Hi Nelson,

Thanks. I hate to admit it, but I've got over 250 hours in it....I almost gave up on it a couple times but I just can't do that.
