Impressive weathering on the window frames and all around excellent modeling. Great to see what you've been working on.

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

Wow! I just looked at this thread today for the first time and ended up going through the whole thing. Great model building, Jerry. I really like the finish on your machinery. You completely nailed it. The structure looks great as well. I build mine pretty much exactly the same way. Can't wait to see this finished. All the best with your project. Ron

Jerry, I was wondering what the footprint of the shop is. If you mentioned it, I missed

Roland its 5" wide x 12" long. I really should have made it bigger. But I was going to use the Tom Yorke walls that Brian Nolan & Dave Revelia used and then changed my mind.
But by then I had already made the plaster base.

Jerry,
I just completed reading through your entire thread. I realize this is an older thread probably because it takes a long time building the machines, the structure, deciding placement for the machines, then changing things around several times, then booking everything up. Then posting!
Your machines are built well and the building looks great too. I will be following the remainder of this build for sure. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

I remember reading through this thread when I was painting machines and building my machine shop. It was very helpful. I particularly liked the finish on the machinery.

Gee Jerry, too bad Rich is great at digging up unfinished threads!

But now that it appears he gave you a "kick-start" I'm ready to see this project resume!.

Standing by !!

Glad it helped Mike.

Carl it will resume. I just didn't like the buildings I started before.

So as soon as by wood gets here I'll be back at it.
Thanks for cheering me on.

Jerry,
Now I guess I stirred up the dust in your train room and you now have to complete this! It's like getting a Christmas present that you didn't have to buy!
