That's where the water wheel goes.  Refer to the pictures towards the top of this page.

looks really good.  I am surprised you are not printing structure walls

The green bits are 3D printed and the building to the right has 3D windows and doors. It is based on "Coats" along the OR&W:


On the left the 2 buildings are based on ones that once stood a few miles from me in Mineral Ridge Ohio.

 
and the post office I reversed:


Mineral Ridge had many small coal mines and a gravity railroad that took coal down to the river at the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal. They even used to manufacture mine equipment here.

In the back left before the bridge will be a small barn/garage.

The "barn"


It is an old AHM/Revell kit and actually has a lot of detail. But it was bigger than I thought it would be so I narrowed and shortened it.

And I ordered a sheet of laser cut shingles from Monster Model Works. I hope they look OK:

Will save a lot of time.  :scared:

Chris,

Outstanding progress all around, I especially like that the town and buildings are based on reality. You're dangerously close to becoming a prototype modeler ;)
The water wheel (and moss) are icing on the cake.

Thanks for sharing,

Lucas
