This log continues to impress and inspire. I aspire to (one day) having room for a similar setup to this. Awesome stuff.

I got diverted by my son who suddenly wanted to game WW2!!!  :o :o :o

Fabulous work I mus say. It will be. A great inspiration for my upcoming projects, my French medieval town and castle for lion Rampant.
