New poll

A new poll has been added to the side bar.  Select all check boxes that apply to your Anchor Stone collection.  I'm curious to know what the average viewer has in regards to their Anchor Stone collection.

You'll note that I limited the box selection to #14a and below.  If you have higher numbered extention boxes, select all that apply plus other.  If you have a unique collection, feel free to elaborate in the comments section.  As always, I strongly encourage viewers to leave comments.

If you're a regular visitor of this blog, please take the time to submit your vote.

The poll gadget appears broken. It doesn't seem to tally the votes correctly.

I changed the blog settings such that you must have a registered account in order to post comments. This shouldn't impact viewers that have posted before, but may deter anyone wishing to post anonymously.

I also added the Blogger Followers gadget to the bottom of the page. If you use blogger a lot, you may want to consider adding this blog to your follow list.

It might be too early to tell, but it seems the poll results show many visitors own box 6a as well as 8a.

I find it interesting that owners of larger sets have been following this blog, which so far has been dominated by small designs. Does it mean small models are still fun to build, or does it mean viewers are patiently waiting for larger designs to show up?

I own several old sets. I've purchased them at auctions and have not kept a decent organizational system yet. Half of them have the squirrel trademark, so they could be from the original batches back in 1880's...... one of them is of the KK series. Three are from the DS series, one came in a cardboard box, and the rest are the ones I need to catalogue. I also own a brand new #6 and #6A which we (my kindergarten students and I) use to build.

i was just looking for more designs for larger sets. I own up to set 28. (6, 6a, 8a, .... 22a, 24a, 26a). I would love to see people make more for larger ones. as for these, they look great!!!

I think your best source for large designs is the www.ankerstein.ch site. Becoming a member of the CVA might have designs as part of their news letter.

In time, I may post more #12 designs, but I've be distracted lately.

Thanks for that advice. I will definitely check that website out.

I would join the CVA if it wasn't so expensive, and i'm just a student. maybe in the future.

Thanks for all the designs you have put up already, they all look great. I really enjoyed browsing your site!

I'm not a member of the CVA either, however it might be a consideration for you at a future date. The club generally tailors to folks with a larger collection. At least I think so.

Thanks for the compliments on the site. I've not been active lately. Hopefully I'll get inspired to create something new.
