Working out those wall angles had to be fun, Steve. They look great.

Why were they angled like that?

Thanks Mike. I'm happy with the doors.

Steve, excellent progress update. The corrugated tin siding and roof are great. Nice position on the layout for it too.
What sort of glue did you use to attach it to the foamcore.
Also, do you know why the walls on the prototype are slanted. I assume it has some purpose.

I made up a workbench with some stuff on it & a shelf for inside the structure.
Then squeezed everything in, and added vintage signage.

Steve very well done on the building; looks real. Should make a nice addition to the layout. Should be interesting to see the final product.

Rob the interior details look really good; well done! Adds a lot of interest to the interior.

Hey Rob,

Glad you like the seed house. To answer your first question, I used “Micro-Mark PSA” to attach the corrugated. Using a wood coffee stirrer, I spread a thin coat of PSA over the row I was working on, let it set up for about 10 min. or so, then pressed each piece into place, slightly overlapping on the side and bottom. For the overlap, I used a toothpick to carefully apply a teenss of “Aleene’s Tacky Glue” to the side and bottom. But, uhhh, I gotta say, no matter how careful I done been, I still got bits of the PSA or Tacky Glue where it shouldn’t oughta had been. So, when all the siding was done, I used just a smoosh of acetone on a paper towel to wipe it off.

To answer your other question, the seed storage buildings, both large and small, typically have short walls and a high roof with a steep angle. These shapes are to better cover how a pile of seed flows with a minimal size for the covering shed. The photos below show the large seed house at the Louisville, GA complex along with my highly, significantly, selectively compressed HO version thereof.




Catch ya later,

Steve

These are some great projects and quite the variety I might add.
I've never seen a seed shed, thanks for the description of it's architecture

I love interior details Rob.
Kate's Kitchen is coming along nicely. I like that cream color of the walls.
Good to see the walls up George, the interior bracing looks pretty sturdy.

I've almost finished the Station project:








Starting with the interior details. Down to the HSB Blanket on the bed and the Time magazine on the waiting room bench.






And then finishing and installing the removable roof.
