Thank you George. I used Beacon 527 Multi-purpose glue for the side walls around the pipe thinking Aleene's wouldn't work on the smooth shiny pipe. I tried Aleene's quick set tacky glue for the top and it worked fine...set up faster and allowed me to form the paper around the round top with less mess.

Jim and Frank...interesting is a good description. I wanted an old silo design but the bands were a challenge.

Tyson, Thank you. I may have added too much rust but it's the look I was after to match the rusty roof of the store.

Carl, the prototype is in my hometown but the bands covers have fallen off over the years.

Thanks, David. I'm always looking for ways to fasten cardstock to plastic.

Dave, that is indeed a unique looking silo that you have come up with there.
That cardboard banding must have been tricky to install, but you managed to keep all looking square & straight.
Looking forward to seeing it installed next to your feed & grain store.

This is looking fantastic, Dave!

Lovely to see the prototype, too.

I agree the peeling paint has come out very well.

Cheers, Mark.

No nit picking here Dave, That silo/tank looks pretty good to me. Reminds me of rule # 1... Your build, your way.. Imagineering I think it's called.....

George, you're welcome but try experiment with Eleene's first.
Greg, the banding was tricky. I'll be finishing up the build shortly.
Mark, appreciate the kind comments.
Bob, thank you!
Ted, your comments came at the right time. I wasn't excited about the silo construction or appearance but it's starting to grow on me.

Dave, If you Google https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo/metal-silos.html
you can find a photo of part of a metal silo lying on its side with the top most visible.
The top has a strong ressemblance to the top on your silo, including the heavy rust, and with a few details seen in the photo would look even closer.

David,

Your silo has an appealing wonkyness, and I particularly like the rust effects. Thatís a neat photo of the prototype.

Nice work on the silo Dave. It's a great effect.
Nice prototype photo too. Is the business still going ?


Regards Rob

My current build.

Dave what's with these 2 roofs? The one on the left is over other buildings and the one on the right is over a shed looking structure.

If that building were being judged in a contest, points would be taken off for not conforming to prototypical practice.

Frank,
I don't know about the roof additions. When we were kids and use to buy colored chicks the roofs didn't exist.
Mike. I'm glad you like the rust. What is wonkyness? The add on roofs to the original building are an eyesore.
Rob, thanks for the silo comments. The feed business has been out of business for many years. Contractors use the bottom floor.
