Carl, green clover, bracing triangles, snug fitting roofs, hand carved plaster boiler, it's all magically delicious!

George, Vic, Frank, Bernd, Jim, Mark, Mike and Greg thank you all for your kind comments.
Appreciate the compliments on the brick boiler too. Got very brave with carving after I finished the foundation...

Bernd- Those bracing triangles are actually made from my old reliable .05" chipboard..
Must be the shadows making them appear very dark....

Carl,

Another great scratch build! Your plaster work is fantastic. I have this kit somewhere along with other Steam Era Structures kits, I am certain your version will be superior to the kit.

As the other modelers have said previously, very nice work. I also like the addition of the right-angle braces.(seen on p. 4) OK Frank?

Carl, Firstly thanks for another great update. So muck to take in.
Now it's sitting on the foundation we can get a feel for how it will look.
That Folk Art Clover green is a really nice colour. I'm rather partial to using green on my windows and doors, and that is a really nice shade. I must see if I can get it here.

Was the brick work on the boiler painted by sort of dragging the styrene over the bricks. Interesting technique. Look excellent.
And finally I wish I has some shares in the clothes pin company.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Thanks Jeff, Rich, Jerry, Dave G., and Rob!

Rob- Folk Art "Clover" is still available... #923 if that helps.

dragging the styrene over the bricks

?? No styrene was involved Rob. First a coat of light gray all over the plaster to prime it and color the mortar. Then dry brushed various oranges & reds. A bit of black for soot. It took several tries and re-do's till I was satisfied.

Carl Thanks for the clarification on the painting. I misinterpreted what you wrote.
quote:
Painted up with a (square of styrene) cleanout door at the bottom.

The styrene is for the door, not the painting.

Hi Carl, your build looks just great so far! I too am building the organ works, an original O scale kit I found on ebay. I particularly like your solution to the little connector between the two main buildings - so fat the most troublesome part of the kit - and the inclusion of the boiler. Nice touch. I ditched the cardstock inner walls in favor of substantial bracing of the wooden walls. I sis it in a timber frame style in the large building as it will get some interior detailing including an organ of course. Also did some rearranging of the relationship of the two buildings to fit the available space. Looking forward to seeing more of your fine work! BTW was interested to see that we’ve chosen the same color scheme! Injust chose a lighter green.

Thank you Col and welcome!

I'll be following your build of the O scale version and I'm not surprised about your color choices. White and green always seem to look good together....

Thank you for the compliment Larry, except this isn't my first post. I've been a member since 2012.

You may be confusing me with a new member (Col Pryor) who is supposed to post a build of the same structure (albeit in O scale) that I've been working on here for the last few weeks.
