  • Every harbor needs a small machine shop to get parts welded or fabricated. I couldn't survive without the one in my town to help me by making parts, welding exhausts and other small things for my boat. Although the one in my town is brick, it's not too different.

    I answer to Dave, I wouldn't be surprised to see a small forge in one today.

      • Troels, your scetches are amazing and the garage is one of those businesses that will be perfect for those Tin Lissieson those bumby roads back in the day! Love to follow its construction!

          • Ollie, the "garage" is a general mechanics machine shop, mostly serving the harbor. They will fix everything...

            It was with great pleasure I again resided at my unbelievably messy, little modeling table tonight!! I have laid out, and cut out the subwalls for the mechanic's shop, balsa'ed two of walls, made a door, and other sorts of delightful jobs...

                A great way to end the year. Nice building and a great concept of an everything fix-it business.

                • nice bench too

                  • Andy, the thing is really a soldering fan with a carbon filter, but I use it to remove ACC glue fumes, since my sinuses go crazy otherwise... It is very efficient for the job. I store paper towels on top ;-)

                    • i just cleaned off my workbench after 10 months of scratch building an old brick hotel with a ton of fancy brickwork (and it looked just like that, only bigger and messier), and if i were able to figure out how to post the images i would but alas....

                      • ahhh i see, good idea.

                        • I love the work bench. Looks just like mine. About every month or so I have to put stuff away to find anything. Good idea for the fumes. If you ever get those fumes in your eyes it can be a real eye opener (sort of a pun intended). Look forward to another year of inspiration from your fun (it really isn't work, is it?) Happy New Year!!! Scott

                          • Troels,

                            Your work bench looks very much like mine.......organized.

                            I have a question. The grey paint on the crane of the Fresh Fish building, could you tell me your mix. I am having a bad time trying to get it.

                            Thanks & Happy New Year.

                              • Maaaate!!! That's not messy - that's a shambles! Love it. The fan idea is good - but I just enjoy the stench of solder fumes in the morning. Having been badly affected by CA fumes once, I give that a wide berth these days.
