Tony, the interior and details are just incredible. You can never have enough C-clamps on hand for the crew.

Excellent work. The many details give your enginehouse the look of a very busy workplace.

Thank you for the photos.

Jerry, Rich, Rick, Russ, Bernd, George and Mike,
thank you all for you kind comments.

I still have more to add, it's an on going process.

To take a break, I have started on a small water tower and storage shed in the style of what Brett Gallant would probably do today. It is a copy of his kit from march 1997, called 'Water Tank and Storage Shed'. Although I love the kit, I really want to do it without the castings, so I am scratch building it. At least the tank side of it. I'll be posting some updates soon.

OK, I had to let my wife get on here for a bit, I can't hog the computer all the time . So here are the latest pictures I have of the water tank and shed project that will go along side (somewhere) the engine shed.

The door was Scratchbuilt, but the wall section is from Monster Modelworks.




The plaster base is for the stone building.


The walls were built up using some Sculpy-made bricks I had left over from my Sewall's Foundry.












The roof of the pump building is just stained and weathered 2-by stripwood.


I made the tank from some 1.5" dowel, which wasn't wide enough, so I added some scale 8x8 for thickness, then the 2x8 for the stakes.








Started with some 'wire-looking' fuzz-free thread, and adding Grandt Line hoops, or hoop fasteners.




This water level gauge was made with stripwood, 2 x 4 I think, and painted white, then I used Woodland Scenics numbers to 10'. Then I added some 2x4 stripwood, thinned down a little on the 4" side.


I added some 22" tall (scale) stripwood, cut from edge to edge for the roof support.


I scratched an access cover, with hinges from Vector Cut, and shingled using Rusty Stumps self adhesive cedar shingles, cut out and added one at a time. A little time consuming on this part, and I hope to be finished by July.

Very nice, Tony. I like all the textures and colors, giving the tank a true backwoods look. It will look wonderful with your enginehouse.

A few updates here on the water tank. Have the roof finished, except for a few details still to add, and have started on the spout framework. I have a little more done than the one center beam shown here, just no photos yet.
