    Rick, there is a door just to 'Andrews' right in the side of the walkway wall, you can just barely see the door trim and door knob. The stairway goes from the main building to the 'bridge'. If that is the stairway you are asking about.

    Regards,

    Karl.A


    Thanks Karl, didn't see the door before you pointed it out.

    • Rick, the staircase connects to the walkway, presumably to gain access to a room blocked by the heavy looms... passing close to working looms is one of the scariest things you can do... many years ago I worked as a weaver, and from time to time visited these small machine weaveries in Norway. Once I had an two pound astray steel tipped shuttle pass my thigh at 60mph close enough to leave a trail on my trousers... so sometimes a strange stairway passage is needed to stay out of trouble!

      • Nice work again Troels.....Amazing!

        When you hand letter your buildings,

        what consistency is the paint?

        • Geezer, for the hand lettering I thin my acrylics (of good quality with very high pigment content) to the consistency of sour cream or light youghurt... soft and flowing but not watery... I load the brush quite full and roll the tip of my no1 brush on a piece of cardboard to make a fine point of paint.

            That is fascinating but also dangerous. Did the shuttle escape the loom?

            • Yes Arthur it was a color change gone wrong... and the shuttle pierced the leather "apron" intended to catch flying shuttles too... the points on these shuttles are super sharp and nasty. In my handweaving days, I never hit people with astray shuttles, but broke a window pane and made dents in diverse walls and furniture...

              • The cast shingle roofs are in place and painted. First test shots on the layout.... I think the weavery works fine in that corner, not least as a backdrop for the lighthouse. A lot of trees and shrubbery around and behind it, including a couple of really tall spruces will make it blend in fine. I'll make an oil tank with a little pump house to the left (for the boiler), to provide traffic for a tank car once in a while, and a shed to the right by the entrance. The smokestack leans a little backwards... I'll correct that, and try to find some elastic thread for the guy wires too.

                  • Hi Troles, the scene it really coming together and is so much "alive". I really like the way you photographed it, getting down to eye level and you have great depth of field.

                    • A little progress... one of these cozy small projects...

                      An oil tank for the weavery's boiler, with a little pump house, and a hose for filling the tank from the tank car. I made the tank from a wooden film roll center I found in the projector room, clad with thin styrene sheet, strips of rivet embossed styrene and brass piping. Hose from solder. After seeing the photo, I have already made the background pipe stand vertical in case anyone wanted to comment on my piping with a tilt

                      • Neat lil tank Troels.....

                        What tilt?? I just tilted my head "/" and

                        it looks fine to me! Just kidding -

                        • The completed weavery looks very nice, Troels, in its final location. And I love the additionnal tank. A great detail that adds a lot of personnality to the scene.

                          • Nice little tank Troels. You continue to amaze me on how you can find a mundane little item and visualize it into something like this tank. It is just incredible.

                            • Troels,

                              Great tank for the side of the building. Nothing is really level in Maine ;-)

                              • Very nice work. I don't remember seeing that water tower being discussed here? Is it a scratchbuild?
