Featured is SierraWest Scale Model's latest release in HO/HOn3, J.E. Morton's Brass & Iron Foundry...herein referred to as "The Foundry" This amazing kit is comprised of six individual structures integrated into a wonderful manufacturing complex complete with a beautiful resin stone foundry structure. Brett, of SierraWest Scale Models, provides a detailed backstory that gives the The Foundry a meaningful and prototypical workflow.
My plan is to provide updates on a weekly to bi-weekly basis as I work up this gem of a kit.
The first glimpse of The Foundry as it came out of the box. Nicely illustrated box cover...pulse quickens...
Now this is what fine scale modeling and craftsman kits are all about!
This is a picture just as the box was opened and the packing material removed...the box with the picture contains all those wonderful resin and white metal castings! Time to get my hands dirty...

Ken, that a very beautiful scene that you have created there!

Stunning model, Ken!
The painting, weathering and detailing are all extremely realistic. Thanks for sharing your journey.

Your diorama looks terrific from every angle. You have consistent and very realistic finishes that complement your careful and accurate work. As I said earlier, the signs are particularly nice and you handled them well. Yes, this is a very good kit, but it still requires a skillful modeler to build. I enjoyed watching it go together.
