The Stone Masons that is. This month's Gallery will give recognition to the stone, block, brick and concrete work that our scale masons have built on our layouts and dioramas.

If it involves masonry, the photos are welcome.

I'll kick us off with this picture I took on Al Churella's Sandy River & Rangely Lakes RR.

Did the masons run out of stone while building this mill or was it a repair job after a fire...?

Here's my stone mill:

It's based on the Wilkinson Mill in the Slater Mill Historic District of Rhode Island. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Wilkinson_(machinist)#Wilkinson_Mill

The construction technique is my standard masonry building approach (from John Nehrich), a subwall constructed in styrene by 'scribe, snap, and reassemble', and then N Scale Architect (HO scale) stone sheet. These sheets aren't quite up to the same quality as the other N Arch sheets, but they still paint up pretty nicely. Foundation is NE Brownstone plaster.

I put some tape to think about pouring the 'water' (Magic Water), but I think I'll postpone that until the spring. Don't want to trap smells in the basement all winter :-)

Hey I thought that this month's theme was going to be a low light one!
Looks like the darn masons have now thrown a brick at that idea.
Oh well! Like the old saying "If you can't beat them, then join them"

Here are my masons at work, on Doan towers.

Some Verne Niner action.



Luckily I was able to save a bunch of what is in this scene after Verne passed.
