  • FSM Sewall's Foundry

    One of my favorite "never had the chance to buy" kits is Sewall's Foundry. It came out soon after I got back from England and wasn't into modeling much at that time (girls seemed to be more of an interest as I recall ).

    Looking on Google, there never seems to be many photos either, and they are always rather small. I would like to take a stab at scratchbuilding one, and really would like to keep the design pretty close, especially the proportions.

    Any suggestions? Plans?

    Thanks,
    Tony Burgess

    Tony,

    This project of yours seems like a rather cool one to me. I have always liked the stone walls of this building and the layout and design of the surrounding buildings. Also your project is on my "to do list", sometime.

    I'm not sure who the builder was, but I'm sure this will help you out.



    Good Luck with your build.

            Rich and Louis, thank you. I had seen Howards one before, didn't know who had done that, but it is beautiful. If I can use that word. I guess if we call a rusty piece of junk beautiful, certainly a model can be.

            In the past I had used some of Georges castings as a guide to size the model, shouldn't be that hard here either. Most of his castings are very close to each other.

              Louis,

              You are amazing, as you always come through for us!

              I know Howard and am familiar with his fine work. His diorama is spectacular. Thanks for sharing.
