time to start putting in the structure,have to place the walls and then build a wood timber roof covered with stone rubble.
still need to paint the villagers and other small detail pieces.
the Anasazi people have a really interesting history.

Thanks for the comments fellas, go ahead and throw anything your workin on in here.

mr. bigfoot i think is sposed to be a gorilla but looks like yeti to me as well, he go's in a little camper yeti encounter dio that's stirring round in the mellon.
just moved so that's why the delay in replying.

Happy modelling!

i did a little mock up to try stuff out on and hopefully get me dialed in for the main piece.
still a ton of small pieces to get finished but definitely on the downhill slope.

thanks randy, i really can use the feedback as this one goes to the show in a little over a week.
overall has been a fun project and i'm a little more savvy with the Anasazi culture, still have to paint the figures and those i struggle with, more of a idea-scratch builder than a painter,lol,
gonna do oils on them, model paints i think would be to flat.
Good day!

done deal!
Fred , Harv, thank you for the support!
yes Fred the figure were the Pegasus.
















all in all a great project that i never lost interest in. had a low attendance this year at the show and my Anasazi had no competition which was a let down as i kinda like to compete.
i was humbled as usual by the pro level work our fellow modelers brought. and scored some nice kits from the vendors and raffle.
again ty for the support gentlemen!
happy modeling!
