I have been adding a few finishing touches to the largest building I have built, Steam Era Structure's Mitchell's Munitions Company. A friend bought the O scale kit years ago at a show, and he asked me to build it for him. I don't believe the kit is in production any longer. The final structure is 23" high and the platform is 19" long. I will be glad to have this build off my tiny workspace.













Thanks for looking.

WHAT ?? "Thanks for looking.".

Indeed we will!! Excellent modeling on a huge model as well. It must be difficult to maintain color throughout on walls that are wider and taller than most small scaled models. You have shown your great skills here. Thanks for sharing your skills and pictures with us.

Beautiful job Terry! The siding colors, the weathered windows and the concrete is quite impressive!! I build in G scale 1:29 and the size of this build would be fit right in with my buildings.

Terry, I think you did a real bang up job on this structure!
I bet your friend will get a real blast from it, when you give it back.

Very nice build!

Wow. Very interesting structure and well done.

Is the short building for storing either powder or finished product? Perhaps the tallest part is a shot tower (??).

I like the color.

Guff, I never gave that a thought. You guys modeling G scale have my deepest respect. I found that it was harder for me to hide my mistakes. Several times I made myself redo a step because I screwed up and it was too noticeable. There is a display model railroad near Cincinnati called Entertrainment Junction. I love to go there. There is a scene where there are skyscrapers higher than me! I kept thinking of building one of those when I was doing this.

Thanks everybody for looking and commenting. Kembo and Michael, the plans call that short, brick building that appears to be partialy underground the powder magazine. Makes you wonder why the main building is wooden, huh? Would it have been? I couldn't find much about munitions factories when I looked, other than there were a lot of explosions. Michael, the top tower is, in fact, the shot tower. The roof gave me fits.

Pete, it's starting to look pretty comfortable here. You might be right. It will be more than a couple of months until I see my friend to give it to him. We shall see :)
