Well here it is folks. The mini farm in 1/64 scale has arrived. I find it as something to keep me awake plus its very relaxing. This hobby has also improved my picture taking skills which I find very nice to have.

Very cool. It is a nice way to improve your photography. Very nice shots. Thanks for inspiring me to locate my toy tractors too.
Thanks for posting these.

Pretty neat stuff! Just wondering, what with the dry year & all, what the yields are in 1/64th farming? :smilewink:

Nice hobby. I see you pretty much run all JD equipment on your farm. You must have a very big AGLine!

Great shots but how much 1/64th scale peppers, corn and beans do you have to grow to make a descent bowl of chili? Let alone how many cows for the meat?

Daniel, yields are like it is in real farming. About 140 bpa at 23-25% moisture. :D

Kenny, will do when harvest gets around.

TG, I got a 7020, I'll have to remember to get a shot for ya, next time I do a photoshoot.

MBWW, about a garden's worth. The farm raises a herd of about 30 Black angus cows.

Thanks guys for all the comments. I'll be doing a haying and silage shoot sometime soonish, so be ready.

That is a neat collection. I had hoped to do a set like that and use it to learn more about cameras. But when my son was begging to play with them, I just didn't have the heart to say they are just to look at. So, off the shelf and on the floor and provided many hours of entertainment.

That's how I started with this. Dad got me these things, well stuff like it, and I just kinda grew interested in it. So most toys I started with are gone after many years of abuse, but these make up for that. It makes for a nice rainy day project as well to do inside.

Had a rainy afternoon that shutdown the outside projects for the day. So I managed to get a few shots.
Loaded and ready to leave for the show.

Very cool hobby.Are the fields set up indoors? It must take a long time to get those photos to look that realistic. To bad its all green though. :laughingteeth:

You are a good farmer. Not a weed to be seen anywhere. Crops look excellent and no cattle in any of the photos. That's my kind of farming. :thumbs:
