Scratch built HO scale Sixes Mill. Prototype is located in Holly Springs GA and was built around the mid 1800's. The model is lighted and the water wheel powered.

I really enjoy seeing beautiful works of art.  Outstanding!  If you took photos during the construction of the mill, can you share some of them.

The mill is awesome, but...I'm having a hard time taking my eyes off the Power Wagon.

I sure will Mark. Here is the prototype that I saw framed hanging on the wall at my dentist office and thought it would be neat to build.

I found every photo online that I could and made rough measurements using photoshop and a micrometer.

Window panes were cut using real .0015 glass from Ngineering and the window jambs were scratch buit but the sashes were cut from Grandt line windows.
