  • Thanks Ray and Chuck.

    Chuck, that's all Evergreen styrene, no paper this time.

    • Very nicely done George, I hope you show it fully weathered. Great design work for the template as well.

        Thanks Pat, I will. Right now I'm focused on my challenge project, so it may be a while.

        • Very sharp looking stairs, George. Looks like the eyes are working very well.

                    Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

                      • This is a Concrete/Gravel plant that I scratch built a number of years ago for a module I had back then... It was based upon an article in the Jan 58 Model Railroader by Dale Rodgers. I had a small, narrow space between a pair of tracks, so I changed the design a bit, adding a pair of vertical conveyors to fill the hoppers, from in-track dumping pits (not shown in the photos). Built up from bits and pieces of corrugated metal, styrene, card and wood...





                        Here's a picture from the original article in MR:

                        • I spent the last couple of days scratchbuilding a Logging wagon. The horses are cast metal, the wagon has a cast metal underframe, with wood top, and the straps are masking tape, (Troels Kirks tip). The wagon wheels are grandt Line Large Circus wheels.

                          • I've always liked the models of Earl Smallshaw. His produce business was named Perkins Produce. There have been many copies of his model built, and this is my rendition. Like many modelers, I like to name as many models as I can after friends. Mine is called Clarks Produce.















                            Thanks for looking,

                            • Very nicely done, Terry. The buildings and details fit together well and having it on a sloping surface makes it more realistic. :up:

                              I like the stone foundation. How did you make it?

                              • These photos show my version of a coal dealership that stood along the Canadian National, ex-Buffalo and Lake Huron, line in Tavistock, Ontario. It was demolished many years ago. I worked from an artist's sketch I found, guessing at what the back of the silos might have looked like.

                                The silos are ABS pipe. The rest of it is styrene.

                                I had no information about any weigh scale, so I built one from my possibly faulty memory of a covered weigh scale at Rannoch, Ontario, along the ex-Grand Trunk line from St. Marys to Sarnia. The scale is wood construction.

                                The base is shaped to fit an irregular spot on my layout. Trying to photograph it in place would have been almost impossible.

                                Hope you like it. Questions or comments are welcome.
