  • Mark,

    Another one of your structural complexities. Very nice.

    I like all the walls and angles but I do wonder if you've ever built a structure with just four walls meeting at right angles and a roof.

    • Great modeling on your railroad!
      Your work meetings are a super idea and it sure looks like you have a lot of fun as well as great talent attending.
      Thanks very much, Dave.

      I really enjoy our modelling weekends. I wish we could have more of them!

      Cheers, Mark.

      • Interesting lines on the "Linoleum" company Mark. Nice work.

        I may have missed it, but did you ever you post a picture of the complete design?
        Thanks, Carl.

        I never did a complete design for this one. The original kit was released in O scale by Steam Era Structures. I discovered it after watching your own fantastic scratchbuild of the organ works. There are a couple of photos of the other side of it in the link below. I have chosen to do cast concrete rather than brick.

        And one of the kit box in the link below. If you click on the picture and scroll down to the bottom then you can magnify for greater detail.

        I based my dimensions off Tichy Train 8057 windows. I only had three of these and had to do a special order. I threw in a few other items as well, but the shipping was still more than the items! I try to always buy in bulk! I drew a site plan and then went straight to building a mock up. I also added another two stacks. A full set of plans would have been useful, but I would have had to alter then significantly to make them work.

        Photo 1 - Here is a scan of my plan. You can see how I have made the main weatherboard section half relief to allow room for the road behind. The row of chimneys suspend the road at the far end. In the plan 10 are shown as in the original. I decided to add another two so they would transverse the entire road. This plan highlights once again just how big you can make a structure appear with a very small foot print.

        • That's an impressive building, Mark. This will be interesting to follow.
          Thanks, George.

          Steam Era Sructures did some great models - all in O scale, I believe. Make sure to check out Carl B's Organ works scratchbuild!

          • That is a great looking building Mark. Nice way to weather to!!
            Thanks, Jerry.

            I'm having a lot of fun! The sun is out today after 69mm of rain yesterday so I'm guessing I wont find too much hobby time...

            Cheers, Mark.

              Do they make structures with just four walls meeting at right angles and a roof? One or two - but you are right - you wont find many on Tellynott!

              Cheers, Mark.

              • Thanks for the compliment Mark, & for the photos & links.
                You're the perfect man for this job!

                • George used the correct word for this build, impressive.
                  I agree completely.

                  • Mark. you're on a roll with the linoleum factory, or, at least the linoleum is on a roll.
                    Looking at Tellynott is like playing 3D Tetris by eye with all the neat shapes and angles.

                      You are most welcome, Carl.

                      I had a very good hunt online, but only ever managed to find these three pictures. Being such a cool looking kit you might have thought there would be more. I'm guessing there is a good number of unopened kit boxes around.

                      Cheers, Mark.

                        Thanks, Rick.

                        Its certainly an unusual design, and manages to pack a lot of punch into a small area.

                        Cheers, Mark.

                          Hoping to play a bit more modeling Tetris this afternoon!

                          • Mark,
                            Very nice weathering technique! Very nice results as well!
                            Looks to be a very interesting building.

                              I really think that first step bouncing a fine brush along to get some paint under the weatherboard laps where the driving rain and baking sun tends to miss makes a big difference - especially with lighter colours. The building is certainly taking a bit of time. I guess I wouldn't want it any other way!

                              Cheers, Mark.

                              • Hi guys.

                                I've mainly been working on some little sub assemblies. These take a lot of time when scratchbuilding - often more than the likes of the largest weatherboard wall with 12 openings in it. For the top to the elevator shaft I had to first draw up a template wall, tweaking until happy and then use this to carefully cut out two gable walls. One of these then had to be cut into three small pieces to fit around my door. After this wall was assembled I glued one gable to the bottom side two times to form two right angles. I glued bracing for the upper walls to the inside of the gables and then glued the two L-shaped sections around a base I cut to size. The upper walls were then filed until snug and then slid into place to the pre glued bracing. The base of the two copulas was also done with a template. The walls were then filed to 45 degrees. I made up six gables and glued these along the flat roof I had made, positioning one each side of the copulas. I made two little boxes for the copulas to sit on.

                                Photo 1 - here are the doors and windows painted oak brown. I use a semi stiff fairly fine brush and kind of semi dry dab this, again trying to push paint into those hard to reach places where nature has trouble getting. I will follow this up with a coat of A&I and then a dry dusting with white chalk.

                                Photo 2 - and here is the top for the elevator shaft. Please bare in mind that this is blown up to about 10 times its actual size. I couldn't help but imagine how easy this would be if from a kit - when all that design work, making templates and fussy, fiddly cutting is done for you... Still - it wont be like anybody else's.

                                Photo 3 - shows the sub assemblies in position. You can see the trusses and boxes for the copula bases. The main weatherboard sub assembly has a styrene base and four walls to hold it square and true. The interior has been painted black. I still have to make up a backing for it, but need to get the windows glazed and in first.

                                Photo 4 - shows the top pieces for the copulas coming together. These are Tichy window shutters cut in half and painted oak brown. I have glued two pieces of 4x4 to their sides painted earth. I will cut the 4x4's flush with the shutters and then glue 6x6's two the ends of four of them. These will be glued together into a square and added to the copula bases.

                                Photo 5 - shows the bulk of the structure. The two main styrene sub assemblies have been primed and then I hand painted using a large flat brush using Woodland Scenics concrete. There is more painting and weathering yet to come.
