  • Troels. As I read the posts, it seems you recently had an operation and you are now doing fine. Best wishes for continued health.

    • Troels,Can you please advise if there are any windows on the other side of The Vulcan building (not the back). I like the style of the building alot.

      also!

      In your DVD you said you do not prime paint the plastic & resin details. Do the Grandt Line & Tichy windows & doors receiver primer paint before painting (or do you just brush paint with the final color of your choice)

      Thanks,

      • Mike, no windows on the left side (a poster and some general mess, bushes and so on will take care of the barren look. No primer on Grandt and Tichy ever. Never had any flaking or other trouble. Two coats of ordinary artists acrylics... Most primers are acrylics. Good acrylics have very good adhesion to most materials. Wash resin thoroughly though!

        • Troels, it looks great. The perspective of the two buildings, the recent house and the vulcanizing shop, is especially compelling.

          • Thank you Peter. As you can see already from the sketch I had their relationship in mind when I designed the Vulcan. I also have to consider the Monkvik on the other side, as I don't want too much distraction from the Nieuport plane...

            I have begun planking the Vulcan tonight and fast discover that this is a bigger building than it looks. 26 cms long (ten inches and a quarter) so it swallow stripwood fast. I have decided to paint it a faded, light red which will then be sooted down with blackish smudging for the burnt rubber look. Windows, doors and trim will have been white once ;-)

            • Progress! I braved the 14 degrees C climate of the shed (with heater running full speed) and nosedripped while working on the Vulcan. Balsa cladding with one of the three gables in shingles. The subroof is in, but for local variety I have decided not to install a shingle roof, but to opt for a corrugated one instead. Have to order some corrugated material though ;-)

              • Looks really good.

                Are you going to add a chimney/reactor house?

                • Troels, When you can if you do not mind!!

                  Can you take another photo showing the blank wall with the gable. Building this building & trying to get a view of your work.

                  my building did not work out as long in length as your did!

                  Thanking you in advance

                  • Troels,

                    I wondered where you were. Had not heard a peep out of you since yesterday.

                    Vulcanizer looks real good. I can smell the odor from here.

                    I make my own corrugated roofing. You will see it on my machine shop I've got coming up.

                    • Rich, peeping is not my style ;-)

                      Mike, I'll do that next time I'm ot there.

                      Schoolmaster, as in the sketch, I'll have a chimney, a steel smokestack, and probably some vents for the poor guys working in there.

                      • I love the colors. This red reminds me of a northern country I - partly - visited two and a half years ago...

                            • The coloring looks really good, Troels.

                              And I especially like the variation that the shingled gable brings to the structure.

                              • Troels,

                                Glad the operation went well and you are well on the road to recovery. Looks like you have another winner with the vulcanizing plant, I really like the lines.
