One of the last kits I bought before a decades long hiatus. Had to have been right after it came out in 1993; by 1994, my time was sucked up with other things.

 

I was in Colorado at the time; similar structures were scattered about here and there

Maybe I was impressed with the animation; maybe I just like old mines

It’s 1899

Everyone knew old Cooley was crazy. All the claims were being filed in the mountains but ol’ Cooley heads out onto the desert flats of Nevada.

And struck ore …

Got himself quite an operation.

 

 

 

 

I had actually started this kit in the way-back-when days and carried the sub-assemblies around for a decade or two. One of the first dioramas I completed after my hiatus from such things, it now sits in my wife’s office.
