Good Morning Everyone,
Great job, fits into the neighborhood
I've almost completed my project "Gimlich and White, proprietors of The Berkshire Brewing Association"
Continuing to work slowly on “Woods Warehouse” for an OGR Forum friend. Built the loading dock support structure this week.
Photo shows southwest corner of my 12’-by-8’ layout. Above the caboose and boxcar, the trestle and some buildings on my 10’-by-5’ layout can be seen on the other side of the room. The caboose is PRR N5C #6417 by Lionel.
Did you scratch build the Silver Cup Bread buildings? They make the scene
Terrific house! I like the technique of photographing the structure outdoors using trees and foliage in the background, it really makes it seem real.
Again, your Sunday thread is one of my favorite weekly topics.
The Silvercup building is from a "Yard Office" kit by American Models (laserkit). The billboard is from a kit by Blair Line...
Silvercup Bread was a huge bakery in Long Island City, Queens, New York which operated between 1924 and 1974. The sign was atop the building.
This is something that I started a couple years ago that I really need to finish. Maybe this winter???
Alan, another great showcase and wow that house is great. Your work is amazing and always inspiring. Thanks to your weekly thread and all of the contributors I have tried things that I would have not imagined doing. All of the steps in building have been like a master class. My results are not worthy of posting here yet, but I keep working on it daily. Thank you so much for keeping this thread going each week. Thanks to all the contributors for the wonderful projects you post.
Sidehack what did you use for that building?
Every piece was designed and 3D printed by me, from the walls to the downspouts
Built the printer from a kit in Sept and have been working on this building ever since, all that's left is the landscape and I'm thinking about putting a lumber yard next door as they go through a lot of barrels.
Your work is absolutely worthy to be posted on this thread. Please, provide some pictures. I am so happy to hear you have learned things from this thread. I would like to see pictures of any structures built by forum members. Thank you everyone that has contributed here. I have learned many things from all of your great work. Keep the pictures coming.
Ray, that is really amazing 3D printing . I have not seen an O scale building made from 3D printing. Really nice work.
David that rolling mill is really neat. Steve, weathering is superb. All of your work looks natural, never over-weathered.
Ops I meant impressive sorry.
Thanks! It is scratch. There is not much steel related stuff out there in O. I was going to make a mold for the stands but ended up making each one individually because I couldn’t wait for the latex. Impatience has a price!
I need to get back on this project and finish it.
Here's a scene from the downtown area on my new smaller layout.
The Atlas theatre is similar to the local theatre here where my wife and I are movie screeners for the film festival.
One of the highlights of the festival is "surf night" and it looks like they are getting ready for it now:
Just completed a sand tower.
The customer wanted the top storage bin made taller to accommodate a decal. I also increased the diam to make it look more consistent. There used to be H-columns as angled braces. I switched over to TB-2 wire tubing. This makes the tower look less bulky.
This is an elevated storage tank for the same customer. It has a 3 inch diam tank and is about 8 1/2 inches tall.
Very nice Joe
