Welcome to Smiggin's Folly

What the hell was that?!
So excited by this, always good to see more of the Folly!
Thanks for following along!
Glad to see your making room for the 5th scale short-course trucks.
Going to annoy the neighbors real good!


Not only is this one of the finest scale areas, the landscaping is pleasing to the eye to those not into scale building. That is a tough balancing act I found especially when I did not get the OK to use common funding for a scale site of my own. Using scrap materials only goes so far but you seemed to have found the common ground with the other team member. Bravo and good luck sourcing stuff as it seems to be a common theme at the moment with everyone doing home remodels and using stimulus money.
My main goal was to not have it look like a toy truck place. I wanted it to be pleasing to the eye. Luckily dirt and rocks are readily available from work. Sometimes I even find plants growing in the wild on the properties I maintain.


Some great progress n00b.
Fully understanding the labor of love happening.
And I'm super jealous of all the trees that I'm needing too for my little area.
Honey do's and 1:1 project have me over a barrel for progress on Mine.
So keep at it and and I'll peek in at the progress.....
RedBull gives ya wings ya know, hahahahaaa It's a lot of work no doubts.
been busy working on my old Chevy truck and poking away at this when it isn’t 95 degrees or raining. What a summer.
(BUMP) To the top we go.
progress ?

You'll probably have a whole city built by now and installed.
;):laughing:
thanks for the bump! A little progress to show.
I have planted two trees and some elfin thyme! My favorite ground cover.

I am in love, the miniature trees are bringing back memories. My father and I love Japanese gardens. All the miniatures and moss bring it all together, this is truly amazing work.

Wow! Been watching videos of Smiggin's Folly for many years always hoping to one day have a property to build my own.
That day has arrived and a bought a house with yard that is ripe for a proper build like yours.
I even moved with the pile of rocks i have been collecting for the last few years....took three loads in my Landy 110 and a trailer to move them from my small townhouse to my new house..... my wife said I'm mad until her showed her Smiggin's :giggle:

Mines been a bit neglected too at the moment, But it's cooling off now for fall and hope to be back at it shortly.

That’s great! So if she thinks you’re mad that must make me equally or even more so. Best of luck with your garden
Man watching this come together is so cool, the level of detail is awesome and the layout is spot on. Nice work!
Thanks!

Better hurry before winter shows it’s ugly head!

Where did I leave off? Still piling dirt and stacking rocks. I hope trees go on sale soon!
