Carl: looks like a great project. Looking forward to following along. I found a set of plans for their Plumbing Works while packing up the train room for the move. Great set of elevations I'm thinking of using them to do a couple of background building.

Great to have you along Kevin, Jim, Frank and Mike!

Jim- No drastic changes ahead, but there will be a few "improvements" ...

Mike- The "Plugged Up Plumbing" model SES offered had some interesting features- I'd like to see that built up!

Hi Carl. Nice to see you have started another build. And a nice gesture to do it for your friend. I'm sure he will be impressed.

Off to a good start. The carving of the foundation is already impressive.

I've seen pictures of this in O scale, and it looks really nice.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Carl, you are a MASTER'..It is quite impressive building this from the bits and pieces of plans you have on hand. I have some of theses kits in O Scale. They are highly detailed and not easy to complete. But when finished, they are very authentic and good looking. Good luck with your build. I already like the foundation....

Rob and Ted, thanks for your kind words and following along.

Rob- I noticed SES seems to have a following amongst "O" scalers, hence Ted mentioning it. Most of the photos of the built up model are from the "O" version, and curiously there are some detail differences between that and the "HO" version.

Ted- Have you ever built any of your SES kits? Which ones do you have?
The foundation was a good use of my spare plaster slabs. Might as well use them up....

Carl, I have three of them in O scale. The general Store, The auto dealership, and weigh station, That one I bashed, into a small house, as most of the wood was dried out and or broken And no directions. They come supplied with lots of wood and detail parts. I plan on building the other two this spring'....

Carl, when SES was in business, they featured more O scale than HO. ANd their models are and were completely true to the scale. For instance doors/windows are out of scale on many kits. Not the case with SES....However, these kits are not for beginners, as they are very technical... to build...

I've just been googling Steam era structures co.
Some really cool structures there! I might have to do a bit of scratch-building myself! That pluggedup's plumbing is terrific! And the one that looks like perhaps a gas works? Anyway - food for thought!

Cheers, Mark.

these kits are not for beginners

Right Ted. I actually have the Step-by-step instructions that were included for the kit-
The "writing style" is very wordy & difficult to understand. They confuse more than clarify. Since I'm scratching this from the original plans I have no use for them.

Mark- Indeed, SES sold some interesting designs. I'm positive with your skillset you could scratch any of these structures.

Thanks, Ted and Carl.

I have a fair amount of structures on the go at present, but I can see a scratchbuild of the Layflatte Linoleum company in my future. Unfortunately I can only find three photos/ sketches of this kit, and two are from what I would consider to be the back. If anyone has a few more photos of this scrumptious kit please flick me an email - I would be most appreciative.

Cheers, Mark.
