BIS C&S water tank for HOn3
Posted by Graffen On 04/04/2020 At 08:42:28 AM
Hi all.
I just built this.


Limited edition kit #168.


I've had it for a very long time, and each time I looked at the manual, I just put it away again...
The big issue was the tapered tank and the bands.
I just bit the bullet now and built it!
The base was rather easy to build.


To solve the tapering of the scale 8"x 2" planks, I made a fixture in my 3D printer.


The planks was to be reduced by 1/64" on one end... So a good fixture was crucial.


I taped the planks before removing them from the fixture. That's so I didn't mix the small and big ends.


I stained them while taped.


The wood was then glued to the cardboard tank base.

I only had to trim some of them to get good vertical alignment.

Finished tank:








All in all a very nice kit.
ROUND BARNS
Posted by hairball On 03/27/2020 At 1:16:16 PM
At one time I was looking into building a round barn or an 8 sided wood or stone barn. Searching using google turned up more examples that I thought would have existed. Apparently they are most popular in Penn.

So spotted this build on ebay and thought I would share it in scratch building section.

One of my more challenging O scale scratch builds having only the front wall view to go by.

Usually I will build something again to see if I could improve upon it. Got sold right after it was finished and shipped to Schenectady NY layout

tom yorke o scale elevated wslc cookhouse
Posted by hairball On 03/23/2020 At 09:26:21 AM
http://www.finescalerr.com/smf/index.php?PHPSESSID=t1vn2qaikl4bceduakam0dkdv6&topic=1263.0

above is a link to a tom yorke o scale WSLC cookhouse, specifically the REYNOLDS CAMP.

I built it once sitting on the ground as stock , then had the idea, why not raise this up onto a deck against a hillside. I built a few variations on this as shown.

Walls are USA Gypsum hydrocal white, windows grandt line, wood decking northeastern scale lumber. Wood colouring done with FIEBINGS leather dye USMC black and 99% pure isopropanol alcohol.

ROAD KILL DINER IN O SCALE
Posted by hairball On 03/22/2020 At 6:15:56 PM
http://modelersforum.com/index.php?topic=4841.0

this is model of a diner I built scratch using a Bachmann ON30 scale dining car. I enjoyed building this one and coming up with the name.

Some whacko once took offense at the font I used on the diner.

Great site!
Thanks for the willingness to share.
I am tracing my family tree and am searching for NAR employee list/staff.
I have a great uncle who was a chef with a railroad gang and in 1940 was somewhere between Rycroft,Arras, and Edmonton.
George McInnis. Don't know if his work took him to the Alaska Highway build, Canol road, or where.
Anyone have any clues for me to search for staff or employee lists?
Thanks again

I came across the site by accident and was THRILLED to see the RR models for the Shirleysburg area. My Dad grew up in the Shirleysburd/ My Union area as did his dad and his dad befor that. My great-grandfather worked for EBT and the only picture I ever saw of him was of that of him standing by an engine. I love the work (though I've always loved model trains). Thanks you guys for bringing this all back to life!

Stumbled on this site and saw my January 1989 RMC cover shot of Phil Chiavetta's layout. Haven't thought about that for a long time. Thanks for the memories!

I look forward to making a contribution hopefully and learning a great deal in the process. A question: is there any information as to the steps to the installation of manual switch mechanisms? As a novice, I seem to be at aloss as to how to set them up. Paul
