Do you have any more pictures as you completed it?
The dock posts were not glued in. I don't think I glued the overhangs either but shipped separately.
I used Robert's Brick mortar. I could never get the hang of diluted acyrillic paints. I tried powder one time. Looked great until I sprayed with Dullcote. Then it went everywhere.
I thought it would be fun to compare this model with the Sager Place building as it exists today. Here it is, courtesy of Google Maps:
It appears that pretty much all facades have been obscured by subsequent construction, but the big chimney provides a good point of reference. This image of the model is from a similar perspective:
I have been following your build, you do Beautiful work. It would be neat to see it with the lights on. If you are shipping it to someone, I hope it travels well.
Thanks for posting the pics.
Joe the finished product looks great. I've seen some WE HONEST auctions on ebay, don't recall if I've ever tried them out. As far a superglue for the older Korber models, have you ever tried the Gorilla brand super glue. I've read here on the forum it has some rubber type compound in the formula to give it a little elasticity so that it's not as brittle as other brands.
Yes sir - I use the Gorilla glue with the light blue tip. Learned that when Rich owned Korber.
In addition Alan Graziano likes to run a bead of hot glue down the joints for extra strength.
Can anyone help me out with putting together the water tower for the lionel 1928 factory kit. Please message me back at email@example.com
Joe, that is a fantastic job. My grandfather was Ernie Korber and I remember when this was first being designed in the early 1980s, I would go with him to Hillside, NJ to look at the existing building. The kit was made from a set of blueprints that he was able to get from the original architect company. I don't believe those kits were last produced in the early to mid 1990s. You really did a fantastic job. I know the directions for those kits were terrible.
Thank you - it must have been a thrill to see this stuff come to life. And Korber is still going strong today!
