Fabulous job!!! I am impressed. How long did you work on the project?

Now you just need some 1/25 scale logs.

So where are the logs?

Go outside and gather up some sticks. It looks pretty weird without a load!

Thanks again fellas. Pardon the delay on replying here my laptop got damaged so I haven't been able to check in that much!

I'll eventually get some sticks to make a load. I know a guy that carts logs for a living. Been meaning to ask him about how many cords on ave gets loaded on his trailer that keeps him under 80k as well as the ave. diameter and type of tree. I went to the trouble of building this in 25th scale I wanna find sticks that are accurate to 25th scale as well.
