Haha here I though I was going to see a model house itís miniature Barbie doll. Iím planning on making a sort of scal engine room with generators steam turbines a power statin I thought about add a master machinist guy at a gage panel but hav not DVDís yet . I really wan to get every ting operational before I get decorative my thought is the guy. Knew at the dairy hat ran he boiler and refrigeration shop . Alec was his name he had an old leather hat and liked like some one right out of the roaring 20ís machine shops . He was a wonderful guy.  Always addresses me as master  greasy hands
It always smelled terrible of ammonia in there the day one of the compressors threw a rod an released ammonia all over  he came running threw a heavy jacket over me and yanked me out the door the fire dept  Arrived and put of us in the ambulance to be checked out ammonia is a deadly gas and this was a very bad situation. I was not very old about 11,12,  at the time.I guess I didnít know very much then. My dad said e entire area was evacuated . I guess I was scared to death as I didnít know what happened till later. I remember my mom was very worried . Tv didnít exist then and even local radio was limited but she had heard news apparently. Anyway I thinking I might model something like this as far as the big old compressors, Iíve never seen anything like them so it would be pure old memory. The were red and much like vertical steam engines . Thatís as close as I can come. Huge multi vee belt drives.

Well done Walter!

A three ring circus.

You definitely are a multi-tasker.
