It takes a brave modeller to decide to go down the route of taking on a scratch build and many of us who try simply fall by the wayside part way through. Scratch building of the highest order is the reason for this months Featured Build selection, with the award going to Trev (tf64) for his dio of Tombstone Arizona.....

Congratulations Trev, very well deserved recognition....

Regards

Alan


This one strikes near to home for me. My father was a blacksmith. He was tutored by a Quaker blacksmith in the mid 1950’s, and for many years had a working forge at the Wyoming Territorial Prison (the home of Butch Cassidy, for a few years) until his arm gave out. He’s now 84, and still goes out into his forge at the house, and makes things.

This dio is spot on, and when Alan suggested it, I just had to agree!

Great job!!!

Best,

Mark

Man he took his time in the sun
Had a dream to understand
A single grain of sand
He gave birth to poetry
But one day will cease to be
Greet the last light of the library...We were here!

Very well done Trev, I was wondering when you might receive this accolade, it was only a matter of time and glad that you've been nominated.

Very well deserved, one of my favourite builds on the forum and one which just seems to get better every time you post a new addition to the town of Tombstone!!

Way to go Trev, keep up the great work. Drool Cool ThumpUp
