Sunday Scenic Showcase August 19, 2018

Alan, the wood gang planks really give the tank the "under construction" look and feel.  Will the tank still be under construction once it takes it's place at the power plant or were the planks just for these photos?

Roo, very nice crane.  I really like the sliding doors in the side of the building.

Sirt, nice to see some readily available, not to scale, wooden items still usedby a master craftsman like you.

Rich, while I've seen square smoke stacks before I don't recall seeing one modeled in O before.  It really gives that custom build a custom look.  

Joe,

the tank will stay in this state on the completed model. The construction simulates two eight foot shell courses have been erected. There would be two more put up on the tank before the rafters and roof would be installed. Each course is scaffolded in order to fit and weld the plates.

great work on the lumber mill rich.

Hi Alan, To your explanation, here, to Joe, I thought I would add these photos of my using one of your handsome under-construction tanks, you made for me, in-situ, as it were, in its place on a client's layout, as a special feature in a "tank-farm" my imagination conjured up. I thought it might be a nice reference for you both to see your being-built tank "in action,"

on a layout I created.IMG_5173IMG_5175bIMG_5180IMG_5181IMG_5186

Frank. That is great. Way better than my words.

So, does that mean I have your approval, Alan, for how I used my imagination to use your crafterpiece  ( I just invented the word, inspired by your work: "craft + master + piece.")    ?
