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


Thanks, David. You have been exploring!

Those were two of my favoutite builds (although there have been many favourites).

I did a bit of work on the second room in the barn yesterday. This room will house Shadowlands. I'm hoping to get some NZ native tree making lessons from my friend, Neil soon. He is a master, although he works in 1:32, so will have to scale down his techniques.

Cheers, Mark.

I've been talking to Ed Traxler, who has the rights to at least some of the 3D printed pipe fittings that Rusty Stumps used to sell. Ed is an O Scale modeler, and what he's designed and printed works well in 1/48. But we discussed the problems with smaller scales. If you want to be able to insert the pipe into the fitting (as opposed to a butt joint), you end up with a piece that is just too small and fragile to print with most 3D printer technology. https://www.micromimesis.com/

Thanks for that Dave.

I also found some pipe fittings at Model Tech studios.

Well - progress has been very slow the last few weeks. I have been busy moving our landscaping plans forward, along with a few special family and friends occasions. I am re-leveling the formal lawn in front of our house, enclosing it in beech hedging and creating wide perennial boarders. I have about 80m3 of soil to rotary hoe up and move with my 1 series tractor bucket!

Below is a magnified photo of some workers I painted up for my cannery. I cut a shovel up and reattached it as knives.


I'm hoping to find time to get the momentum going again on this project.

More soon, cheers, Mark.

Mark, sounds like you've got your hands full there.
Your cannery workers sort of remind me of Alex & his droogs, from "A Clockwork Orange"

Thanks Greg.

No, Kembo, I've seen it too. And pretty odd it is too! Up there with fear and loathing in Las Vegas and eraserhead! Those guys in that photo might look like Alex and his droogs, but I can assure they have hearts of gold, and all that blood is definitely from fish!

More soon, cheers, Mark.

My wife’s reaction to the cannery workers: “That is truly disgusting”. And she has seen A Clockwork Orange, in German.

I think you’ve succeeded, Mark.

Gee, Greg - see what you've opened up now!!???

Thanks, Mike. I actually took my wife to a triple showing featuring Eraserhead as one of the movies for one of our first dates. As she managed to sit through two of the three movies, I knew it was true love!

Kimbo - if Eraserhead is in your drawer, treat yourself to a viewing of Peter Jackson's zombie comedy 'brain dead'.

Cheers, Mark.

Hi guys.

Well - a bit of progress to the cannery.

The right end addition has had the final ventilation grill added at the top of the gable. I added blinds to the windows and glued the second half of the sub-assembly into position.

I glued a row of window shutters to a plastic backing and then cut this into to long sections. I also did the same with two gable ends, cutting the rake into top. These were painted brown/ black and then dry brushed. I glued 8x8 timber corners to the sides of the gable and trimmed. I glued the two sides to a plastic 'floor', and then attached the ends. I painted up 4x2's in unbleached titanium and added these as trim to the sides of the cupola. I made up roof sections from black card and covered these in high tack painters tape. I painted these a brown/ black and then dry brushed with unbleached titanium. I left the tape slightly long at the internal ends of the larger roof to turn up as flashings. I glued the roof to the cupola and added barge boards. I then carefully fitted the cupola through the rectangular hole in the larger roof and glued to the bottom of the 4x2 timber trim. I then glued the larger roof to the structure. I still have the barge boards to add to the larger roof.

Photos 1 and 2 - show the cupola completed.




Photo 3 - shows the larger roof.


Photo 4 - shows the roof glued to the structure, shown from the back.


More soon, cheers, Mark.

Mark great to see you continuing with this build, as I did enjoy it during the Challenge.
The cupola looks good.

Hi guys.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, Carl, Jerry and Rob.

I decided to move on to the main roof. Rolled roofing seemed like the easiest and most logical choice, although I think I will go for grey this time to change things up a bit.

I prepared some roof details and built an extension to add to the back of the sloped roof protrusion towards the front center of the complex. I kept the rake of the roof-line the same as the protrusion to keep the roof simpler. I added a small door to the left side. There is a staircase to go from the blue addition with the fish sign on it up to the roof, and I wanted a good reason for this. A door leading back down to the floor below will suffice. I have also stained some 8x1 for a rooftop walkway which will lead to this door, and also to the rooftop shed.

Photo 1 - shows me preparing my high tack tape. I mark the center of the tape and then run a pencil around using my finger as a spacer to keep the distance constant. I then undo the tape as shown and cut down the pencil-line with a sharp knife. I then use scissors to cut the roofing to length. I ruled lines on the rooftop as guides.


Photo 2 - shows the roof half done. There is a bit of fussing with tweezers, a ruler and a knife to try and fold up the flashings and poke/ prod pieces into the corners.


Photo 3 - shows the roof completed.


Photo 4 - shows the small shed.


Photo 5 - shows the back and one side (without the door) of the new addition and a close up of the flashing detail.


Next up is to paint and weather the roof, and then add the details including the rooftop walkway, connecting exterior stairway and the wall capping.

More soon, cheers, Mark.

Mark, it looks like you know how to lay roofing paper. It’s very realistic.
