i need a depot for the train to bring fishermen to norton's, and the one i had was awesome but took up too much room, so i opted for a smaller depot.
here's the cover of the box:




and the contents of the box:



to eliminate the need for interior bracing art has decided to cut the walls out of thicker plywood. it's pretty thick. 1/8". there are a few castings that came with the kit. a chimney, some barrels and some pretty lame fake gooseneck lamps. a smokejack, a fuse panel/electric meter and a chimney round out the castings. the roofing is "slate". 've never done slate so that should be interesting.

here's the walls painted. i decided to go with traditional burnt umber for the windows, doors and trim, and cableknit gray for the walls.




and here are the walls all trimmed out.
i still have to weather them, add window treatments and back the windows and doors with black paper



the station comes with a prescribed self adhesive platform and base. i think i'm just going to hit it with silverwood, maybe two coats. i don't know.

Kevin nice job on the burn barrel. Boy dose that bring back memories. Spent a lot of time in the winter around barrels just like that on the job site.

Kevin, Nice job on the oil drum. Looks suitably decrepit. Certainly is a nice casting.
kebmo1 Posted - 01/31/2021 : 10:29:40 AM
boy did we get clobbered overnight.









i just paid 3 high school juniors to shovel my driveway. best $40 i've ever spent.

Hey Kebmo:

I built that. It's A great little kit.

Karl S.
kebmo1 Posted - 01/30/2021 : 9:06:30 PM
mike and george, thanks. i like the way it turned out.
karl,
thanks. he really does make the best details.
UKGuy Posted - 01/30/2021 : 9:02:26 PM
Fantastic weathering and finish Kevin.
I still spend time around a burn barrel and you got it perfect.

Brett's details at SWSM are the best.

Great looking barrel.

George
Michael Hohn Posted - 01/30/2021 : 7:32:20 PM
Wow. Looks great, Kevin.
kebmo1 Posted - 01/30/2021 : 5:23:33 PM
sierra west scale models recently released a line of details that brett designed and 3d printed. this one in particular is a deteriorated oil drum (barrel).
the casting (with prototypical wall thickness):




casting primed with rattle can flat black orimer




after about a half an hour playing with chalks and alcohol














these are real cool. i spent many hours standing around a burn barrel just like this one. check it out. swsm came up with some other really cool details and they are available for sale.
i have no affiliation with sierra west scale models other than really enjoying building his kits. this is a perfect burn barrel.

I never rely on self-sticking glue.

I do like Bar Mills kits.

You did a fine job.
mikethetrainman Posted - 01/28/2021 : 1:56:24 PM
Kevin very nice job. Neat little station.
kebmo1 Posted - 01/23/2021 : 07:50:49 AM

Glen Haasdyk Posted - 01/23/2021 : 12:13:06 AM
Nice job on the kit. I like how your colors 'pop'
Ensign Posted - 01/22/2021 : 9:00:51 PM
Kevin, nice work on your station!
I thought that station platform would be full of eager fisherman.

Greg
