Nice work guys!!
I built this model of Saulena’s Tavern from the well-known kit by Bar Mills Models. It resides at the front corner of my 10’-by-5’ model railroad. I originally intended for the building at the left of the photo to occupy the front corner but the fit was better this way.
Excellent Bob. Always a good feeling to wrap up a project. I like how the high line cuts right in front of the wood portal and adds a little mystique to the whole scene forcing the viewer to look under the tracks.
Al, do you know if the half tank is destined to be a display or a teaching aid? Are you working from design drawings or photos of the interior?
Mel your decisions on structure placement always seem to turn out just right.
Rob, you've got an awful lot going on there. And it all looks like fun.
I think the model will be used as display and training. It is a project that our company just finished. We rebuilt the vessel. The interior details will be far more than the exterior ones. There is a steel structure that contains the methane gas as it fills the tank.
Great stuff, everyone.....this is what Gilly@N&W , myself and crew are doing for the modular club. This is nothing like the fabulous work being done above.......
If gathering restrictions are eased we will be part of a 2 day train show later this Spring. As a fund-raiser, we decided to use some of our donated trains to make a fully decorated PostWar style layout for a 2 day raffle.
It has been built on a hollow core door and i't only cost to us are the door and the paint.
Here are pics so far:
It was have a Lionel 4-4-2 steamer with 4 freight cars. A 1033 transformer will power the layout.
We will finish it off with some Plasticville/Marx type buildings and total cost will be about $60.
Finished up the last of the extra details on the first section this week. Just need to wire up the building. So added bushes to the outside edge. Cut up a old tie to make a little scene of a changed out tie. Added another track figure to the truck scene. Still need to add some stuff to the bed of it. Weathered the brewery, added some figures and a piece of wood in the edge of the platform.
