Approximately 90% of the buildings and farm equipment on Chris’ farm displays are scratch built by him. Working in both brass and styrene, Chris enjoys seeing his creations come to life.

In the world of farm display contests, Chris has been called a “triple crown winner,” since he took first place in farm display contests at the Lafayette Farm Toy Show in March 2013, the National Farm Toy Show in November 2013 and the Gateway Mid-America Farm Toy Show in St. Louis, Mo., in February 2014, thus the title.
