MTH Stone Mill kit bash

I am posting this to share what can be done with an MTH stone mill.   The foundation for the added porch is from a 2nd mill.     It could also have been built with stick wood to save using two buildings.

I sanded off the corrugations on the roofs and added slate shingles from Builders in Scale.

Eventually this will get a water wheel on the back side and some larger  foundation stones on the back side where the ground drops off for the water wheel.

Posts and details are from Grandtline.

That looks really nice Stu. Have you ever built the Sudbury Mill kit by Stone Mill Models? He still sells his kits on eBay under the name treefactory. I built up this shell for my layout but never used it. I added the freight doors and this was going to sit on a raised foundation. Maybe I’ll use it someday on my next round of scenery.

Norm.   I have actually been to the Sudbury mill.   I am looking for someone to make the water wheel kit based on the Sudbury mill.   If I can get one would you be interested.   I can have the laser person make some extras.   I have found other O scale water wheels but nothing like Sudbury.   

I tried looking for Treefactory on ebay but no luck.

The stone coloring is great.

Stu
