Hi again.

Photo 1 and 2 - shows the ovens in position. You can see I cut and spliced some piping sections together. This photo also shows the first flight of stairs and the landing. The next flight and the bottom deck is also built as well as another flight of stairs. Cutting those stringers is an awful job! Its annoyed me for ages that just about every scratch-building supplier and kit manufacturer produces stringers at 45 degrees - which is a very steep and not very common slope. I found that Builders in Scale had the same thought and now offer stringers in 6 different slopes. Unfortunately shipping at the moment is very slow - so I had to box on, but I will be definitely buying some stringers off them soon for my scratch-building supplies.




Next up is the timber scaffolding which holds the pulleys and takes the weight of the doors when opening.

More soon, cheers, Mark.

Mark, your diligent work on this very complex structure is really paying off, I love the new ovens.
Keep up the great work!

Nice progress, Mark. Your oven doors are impressive.

Mark the ovens look good but did you leave enough room to load and unload the ovens. It looks a bit tight.

Mark, what piping kit did you make use of for the valves and elbows? I have not found anything other than Walthers thus far. I have a vinegar/pickle plant in my future.

Thanks very much, Carl, Greg and George.

Yes - when I first saw that photo I was thinking 'I hope I can fit the scene in'. I've been trying to come up with some door catches, but so far everything I have tried has looked clunky and over scale - and even then they are so small and fiddly to work on.

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks, Frank.

There certainly has been some selective compression and a bit of thinking out the box (or through the wall), but I think there is enough room for a small trolley to be loaded and towed into the factory for labeling. I just went and measured and there is 4 foot between the front of the cookers and the sea wall at the tightest bit. Remember those oven doors slide upwards. The photo on the last page shows one open. It also shows tracks coming out of the ovens and a set of tracks running along in front. I'm guessing the cans were actually cooked on trolleys. No track for me, but maybe a trolley laden with cans of fish?

Cheers, Mark.

Hi, David. Um - not completely sure - but I think it is part of one of my Kibri factories, probably 'Factory Buildings "Grunderzeit"'. Just had a look and most of it is definitely from that kit.
If you have a factory in your future Kibri make great kits with lots of plastic detail parts of a very high quality.

Cheers, Mark.

The ovens add a lot to your building. Iím glad you were able to fit them in. You did an excellent job cutting out the circles.

Mark, nice work. David, Plastruct may be another source for piping parts.

Mark,
The Goodrich and the Ruggs Manufacturing are great looking buildings. I always enjoy seeing the old weathered buildings and your work is superb!

Yes - the circles when quite nicely. You do need your dividers done up nice and tightly so they don't slip.

Cheers, Mark.
