Excellent modeling. Can't wait to see it painted and weathered.

Thanks guys.

Rick, The boiler is from Wiseman. The one from SW looked kind of big for what I want.

Roland,
I am watching and learning. I want to try to scratch build a boiler from a bunch of spare parts I have.

Nice boiler, Roland. It looks like a mix of scratchbuild and using commercial details.

Finially got around to finishing the boiler tonight.



Here is a shot with the engine and a figure for size.



Now I have to build some sort of concrete base then connect the piping.

Question, does anyone know what kind of connection is used to get water into the boiler, and where does it connect to?

Thanks, Roland

Roland -
I might suggest a small gas driven motor that
connects to a well (pipe in the ground) that would
feed a barrel (reservoir) with some kind of piping
back to the boiler.....capiche?
Just a thought.....

Very nicely done and painted boiler, Roland. I have watched my sawmill pictures to see if I could help you with the piping between the boiler and machine (since they both look very close to yours), but they are not very explicit on this...

Thanks again for the comments. I must have asked the question wrong. What I want to know is how does the water get into the boiler from the water tank.

I just poured a pad for the boiler and support for the engine using Drylok hydraulic cement. It's drying now and looks pretty good. At least the color is right. I didn't go for the finished look of a professional finisher, rather a rough finish. Photo after it sets up.
