Auto ramp

Stu Gralnik ·
I am taking orders for some auto ramps. These will be about 12" long and made so the height can be adjusted to match the height of the Auto car. If you are interested or just want more information please contact me at my email listed in this post. The estimated price for a ramp is $200 plus any shipping or tax. These will be ready for pickup at York.

Buildings for York

Stu Gralnik ·
Here are 3 client buildings that I will be displaying at the York train show. The White Tower and Mobil Gas are kits from Twin Whistle. The Raritan River freight house is scratch built from client pictures and drawings. I am also working on some electric substations to sell at York. My table is at the end of row K near the entrance side of the orange hall . For more information on the Raritan River freight house please check out their web page at: ...

layout buildings tour

Stu Gralnik ·
Over the last 16 years of model building I have had the honor to do the majority of buildings on some great layouts.   Here is a layout that features models based on actual buildings from the 50'.  to do this I pick the major architectural details from photos, then design the building to fit the layout.  All postcards are from the collection of Stu Gralnik.  All final scenery was done by the client.

Henry V was the client. If you do not know him and would like to contact him please send me an email (listed in this string) with your email and a note to him, and I will forward it to Henry. I had to guess at the end with the man door. Is there any chance you have a picture of that end when it was a freight house? I did have pictures when it was a station from the Raritan River web site. http://www.raritanriver-rr.com...yMilltownStation.htm I have the drawings and can build more if there is...

Stu, I'll be watching your post! Glad to see a 'build thread' on this. How difficult is making the floor? I have the templates and I'm an experienced modeler. Looking for the easiest way from someone who has done this a few times... Thanks!

Re: Korber round house build

Stu Gralnik ·
Here are today's progress pictures, all of the cross beams are in place and most of the diagonal braces. this is made in 2 halves which are bolted together at the double center beams. Build time 21.5 hours. I have never put a floor in a round house but it shouldn't be to hard but to long to describe here. feel free to give me a call during a week day. Phone number on my Model Building Services web site.

Very cool! I really like the idea of dioramas, change it up now and then. Even larger layouts need it! There are always more models than any one layout can support at any one time. Nice job Stu!

Max, Yes it is for a client. As a forum sponsor I am posting all of my work on this forum. I don't build many buildings for my layout because I don't have any room for buildings, you can see pictures on my web site under Stu's layout tour and a video of the layout.

Re: Korber round house build

The kits I used are: one 304 which is a 3 stall and side walls three 304A which have one front, back, wood for the posts and beams, roof. Two 304B big boy extension, which have side walls, window back Roof, and replacement for a normal stall back. which is added to a stall to add about 5 1/2" length. This works great if you only add one stall bigboy extension. If you do more then one Big boy extension replace the shorter 304B back with the origional kit back. You will also end up with unused...

Stu, thanks for your postings as they help with giving some guidance on how to best approach the model. Also thanks for offering to assist with the calculations for adjusting the stall to stall degrees that would extend the model further away from the turn table pit. I have a unopened box for the 304 roundhouse. How can you discern if the kit you own is a new one or an older model? When was the model updated and released?

I am guessing this was 3 kits, the three stall, the one stall and the two big boy add on.

The new kits have an address of 100 Castleberry court #178. Milford, OH.. The original korber usually or always had a red box and a picture on the top. I am not sure if the current owner Rich sold any with the plastic doors or vacuum formed windows. You would have to contact him. He is a forum sponsor. If you open the box of an original korber model you will smell a heavy plastic smell. If not when you sand the back you will smell it. These were good models for the time and can still be...

Here are the final pictures of the round house. I would like to commend Rich at Korber Models for all of the great improvements he has made to this kit. Rich has improved this kit by using a casting resin that does not smell when sanded or machined. The color is throughout the casting material and I did not have to paint the walls, the laser cut windows and clear window pains look great and are easy to install, The wood is all machined to size, the laser cut doors look great.
