The chainlink fencing looks fantastic, is it home-grown? If so what raw material did you use for the meshing?

CSX......I used some some tula (SP) I got at Wally World, rather expensive....Cost $1.00 a yard, and I have enough to put fence around everything on the layout if I want. The barbed wire is simply gray thread. Mike

Looks like the stuff they make ballet tutu's (sp?) out of - if so, I got a ton of that already (my two youngest girls were into ballet last year, but dropped out):cool:

I'm not sure what they make tutu's out of, I'm thinking it will be to big. I think what this is used for is bridial vails and the such. I measured the little holes and they are about 1.5mm. (My eyes are not as good as I would like) I used a digital calipers to measuer. If you need more help, I am never very far away. Mike

Mike, I really like your detail work. The honky-tonk reminds me of a few places I frequented in my younger and more rowdy days. Ya-hoo! :cool: :D

Amazing what you can pick up at craft places. I always find I get unusual looks when I go into "those" places. Gives me some ideas fo other projects I've been putting off.

Thanks for sharing and welcome aboard
