Sunday Scenic Showcase March 24, 2019

Wow Alan, those are great. They huge too. That must of been one heck of a layout to fit those on. I’m confused on why the shipping containers are on the top beam? Don’t they have control rooms up there? 

Here is what I worked on Friday night. Some cone tanks to install under the Hooker Chemical plant building. These are going to be 3D printed today. 

These are 2.75" tall.  3hrs & 11 min. to print .

Here is the tank by itself

Beautiful work by all

Finishing up on replicas of the Suncoast 200 Ton Coal Tower. One is a customized kit bash while the other is scratched built. I will post a separate thread once I have completed the structures. From what I understand this kit is not offered anymore???????????

I just found a major issue with the kit - If it is placed over track on top of roadbed at 5 inches it is not high enough to allow Steamers to pass through! I am going to have to cut off the bottom and somehow make the legs longer - ~ 6 inches or more. My guess is that it was not designed to sit over track but to have track pass on both sides?????????????

Hopefully came up with a good looking solution. The original problem is shown below. The smoke stack misses by about 1/4 inch

The redesign is next to the kit design. I think it looks cleaner.

The locomotive now has no issues passing underneath

I am going to need to build a suitable base for the elevator now.

I finished my beverage distributor. This is  a Downtown Deco Rainbow beverages kit that I updated.  I made the rollup doors from evergreen and shortened Korber door rolls.  The Bud sign is an N scale Miller billboard.

No ticket booth?  That can't be financially beneficial.

Beautiful architecture and great workmanship.

It is in the lobby, but I used opaque vs clear glass for the door so you don’t see in side.
