    Chuck,

    That tank car is beautiful and the modeling is impressive. I have not scratchbuilt a car yet, but have recently read some old issues of MR (1950's) where the car-building articles have attracted my interest.

        Karl,

        Nice job, as usual. Is the concrete loading dock a casting? Do you remember who made that industrial chimney?

          Bruce,

          I think I have the same chimney. Mine is a resin chimney. It didn't have a tag on it when I bought it at a local train show.

          Since we are talking about them, have you seen the Victorian Smokestack by Sylvan? I forgot all about them. And, they come to the Springfield show:

            Chuck,

            I have built one of their small structure kits (two car handcar shed), and I love their 55 gal drum castings, etc. But, I did not know that they had the Victorian Chimney casting. I will have to get me one. (I did manage to get the same "look" with the Crow River chimney & my base casting.)

              Hi All:

              Thnaks for the compliments. Bruce, the loading dock is balsa covered with durhams water putty and painted. The stack is resin but I forgot who the Mfg. is. It's not the same one Chuck pictured. Mine doesn't have the concrete base.

                  Karl,

                  Sorry, I didn't mean to mislead. I do have the same one you have from your pictures, though. I just offered an alternative to Bruce, just in case the one you pictured could not be identified. Great model, by the way!

                    Bruce I have one of the sylvan chimneys and a word of caution when I bought mine the store had 4 or five in the bin and the one I got was the only one which was reasonably straight the others were curved and bend probably stored or shipped somewhere hot. Pat

                      I've been gone a week and came back to find this great thread. You guys have posted some fine pictures of your fantastic work.

                        Hi Chuck.

                        I have long been a fan of yours. Glad to see you using these forums.

                        The tank car is heart-stopping (don't know if that is such a good expression). Absolutely beautiful work.

                        Mic

                          Thanks all. Mic, you have been a mentor to me for many years through your articles. I eagerly scan the Forum for any post of yours!

                          If you ever get the time to post photos of your Stambaugh Garage, there is a topic called “Fill er up” over in the Model railroad construction forum that would be a perfect place to put them! That building and your Pillar Point diorama really shook up the hobby!

                          I am finding these Forums to be super inspirational! So much great work to see, so little time to look!

                          Thanks again,

                          Chuck D

                            Hi Chuck.

                            Good to hear your 'voice.' Stambaugh is still around safe and secure in a plastic case. I am very excited about this particular forum – Scratching. I finally mastered posting photos only to have sub-freezing weather thwart my photographic goals. Spring has almost sprung so it won't be long before I can get some real sun to light the subjects. I shall be watching closely for your stuff as well.

                              About a year ago, I scratchbuilt this structure as part of an on-line diary here on the forum.

                                Here are a couple of buildings that are located on our club layout that I scratch built.

                                The Riverview Motel is all styrene with Grandt Line windows and doors.




                                The Brindza Mine tipple is styrene on wood pilings.
