Hi all.

I will, in weeks to come, carry on with this module, but for now, just wanted to let everyone know I was safe. At present, we still have no internet, so can only reply every few days when out and about.

Just a quick update to let everyone know that myself and all that i know (so far) are all OK after Christchurch's 6.3 earthquake. Although much small than our september 7.1, this earthquake (on a newly discovered fault line I believe) was much closer to the city and far shallower. it caused substantial damage in the central city ( including the total destruction of two multi story buildings) and also many of the burbs. The death toll last I heard was 113, but this is expected to rise to over 200. Many of the older buildings were OK or saveable after our sept earthquake, but are now piles of rubble.

On a positive note, Tellynott lives on, with some repairable damage. I will post pics of the Tellynott damage when we have internet back on at home, and an update.

Its a good day to be alive.

Cheers, Mark.

I've been talking to Ed Traxler, who has the rights to at least some of the 3D printed pipe fittings that Rusty Stumps used to sell. Ed is an O Scale modeler, and what he's designed and printed works well in 1/48. But we discussed the problems with smaller scales. If you want to be able to insert the pipe into the fitting (as opposed to a butt joint), you end up with a piece that is just too small and fragile to print with most 3D printer technology. https://www.micromimesis.com/

Mark,
The Goodrich and the Ruggs Manufacturing are great looking buildings. I always enjoy seeing the old weathered buildings and your work is superb!


Thanks, David. You have been exploring!

Those were two of my favoutite builds (although there have been many favourites).

I did a bit of work on the second room in the barn yesterday. This room will house Shadowlands. I'm hoping to get some NZ native tree making lessons from my friend, Neil soon. He is a master, although he works in 1:32, so will have to scale down his techniques.

Cheers, Mark.

Mark, nice work. David, Plastruct may be another source for piping parts.


Thanks JBVB.

Also - thanks David for posting that link. Those William Bros fittings look quite good.

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks very much, Mike.

Yes - the circles when quite nicely. You do need your dividers done up nice and tightly so they don't slip.

Cheers, Mark.

[quote][/quoteMark, what piping kit did you make use of for the valves and elbows? I have not found anything other than Walthers thus far. I have a vinegar/pickle plant in my future.]

Hi, David. Um - not completely sure - but I think it is part of one of my Kibri factories, probably 'Factory Buildings "Grunderzeit"'. Just had a look and most of it is definitely from that kit.
If you have a factory in your future Kibri make great kits with lots of plastic detail parts of a very high quality.

Cheers, Mark.

Mark the ovens look good but did you leave enough room to load and unload the ovens. It looks a bit tight.


Thanks, Frank.

There certainly has been some selective compression and a bit of thinking out the box (or through the wall), but I think there is enough room for a small trolley to be loaded and towed into the factory for labeling. I just went and measured and there is 4 foot between the front of the cookers and the sea wall at the tightest bit. Remember those oven doors slide upwards. The photo on the last page shows one open. It also shows tracks coming out of the ovens and a set of tracks running along in front. I'm guessing the cans were actually cooked on trolleys. No track for me, but maybe a trolley laden with cans of fish?

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks very much, Carl, Greg and George.

Yes - when I first saw that photo I was thinking 'I hope I can fit the scene in'. I've been trying to come up with some door catches, but so far everything I have tried has looked clunky and over scale - and even then they are so small and fiddly to work on.

Cheers, Mark.

Nice progress, Mark. Your oven doors are impressive.

Mark, your diligent work on this very complex structure is really paying off, I love the new ovens.
Keep up the great work!
