SS LTD Jennings Lumber
Posted by railfan22 On 05/18/2018 At 7:49:34 PM
I am contemplating starting on the SS Ltd kit for Jennings Lumber and i have read that the new owner of SS Ltd has redone the assembly instructions. Given that this is a complex kit i was hoping to obtain these updated instructions to supplement the older instructions. If anyone has these instructions and could provide copies of them i would sppreciate it. Inwill gladly reinburse for copying and postage. Thanks. Scott Hurley

Woodland Scenics Tucker's Bros
Posted by ebergh On 04/30/2018 At 3:56:19 PM
Years ago I built up a Tucker Bros kit as a Machinery Repair shop, and then gave it away... now for the new modules I built up another one, Ben and Jerry's Scoop Shop, incorporating several of Woodland Scenic's castings plus a JL Innovation Brownhoist Pillar Crane. Lots of practice painting! Also made up some decals for crates, etc. Good procrastination project.
Hope you enjoy.

Campbell Richmond Barrel
Posted by ebergh On 04/30/2018 At 3:34:51 PM
Hi
I have finally finished a modified version of the Campbell Richmond Barrel kit... it's hiding in there somewhere! I started out by rearranging the various sections of the building, and then decided to reposition the doors - the kit had a double doorway centered right under the middle of a load bearing upper story wall. That got me to thinking about how I was going to hide the hole... the kit intends you to cover it all in corrugated metal, LOTS of metal! I decided to rip a bunch of veneer into 12" boards and use it for horizontal siding, and use the corrugated metal just on the roof.

I have a friend with a small winery, and used the computer to create a sign from his label. His winery dates back to the Twenties, so I tried to go for a pretty worn, but still functional looking building, in need of repair.

Put too much time into detailing and lighting the interior, including flickering LEDs inside the cressups, that no one will see from outside! Live and learn.

Enjoyable project. Campbell is a good reliable base for improvising.

Build something while the forum is down Challenge
Posted by Ensign On 04/27/2018 At 9:00:25 PM
Hi guys, I don't know how much time I have to promote this idea, before the forum shuts down for the weekend.
So I have this idea that we try and build a small kit, or a small structure whatever.
Since we won't be distracted by having to check out what's happening here, I thought we could try to use our extra time building something.
Then we all show what we have done, when the forum comes back on-line.

What do you think, anybody in?
I'm going to try, and see what I can do.
How about you!

I stumbled across this website and thought I should leave a comment about my Dad who was a man that lived railroad and dedicated his knowledge to anyone interested in model railroading. Ever since I was a baby, we went on every vacation involved with Steam and rode in many cabs around the US. I have many great memories of my Dad living his Rail Life.

If anyone involved in the model railroad life ever met my Dad, they would never forget him.

Hallo from Germany,

I invite you all to visit my Modellcom-Blog. Many different things to look at: logging, mining, cardmodeling for the model railroader, regular card modeling, many hints and links to other interesting sites. A special feature of the site are regular hints to free downloadable card models or free books on trains. Site is only in german, but you can use the prominently placed Google translation tool.See it here:
