Good Morning Exeryone,

I will start out with a picture of 20200530_154900an airplane hanger I just started working on. I hope to add some more pictures later today. Let's see what you have been working on.

I have an Atlas O switch tower model on each of my two layouts. Trumbull Junction Tower is on my 10’-by-5’ layout (built about 5 years ago) and the South Tower is on my 12’-by-8' (built more than 20 years ago). In each case, I had larger craftsman kits that I could have built but they were too large to fit. I do think that the Atlas O tower is a fine model with good details.

MELGAR,

I really like the second set of angled stairs on Trumbull Tower.  Adds interest and realism to the tower's elevation.

Great stuff so far......I am in awe!

Alan.......looking forward to later.

Pete......being city-boy from the Bronx.....view blocks for me are other buildings....I never would of thought of using trees and hills as view blocks.

Melgar.....love how you fit buildings into the terrain.....everything I do is flat.....I have a tough time thinking in 3 dimensions.

Steve.....just amazing!  I love industrial/urban scenery!

 

 

Peter,

That is such a nice building to construct and to kitbash. Lionel had a real nice series there for a while.

you did a real nice job with it.

What can you make of multiple lionel factory kits and a municipal building?

Alan, Looking forward to more on this weeks project. Pete landscape work is really amazing. Melgar super job with the tower and I really like your placement. Steve building complex is really looking great. Interesting shape for the building. I have seen that type, just never modeled before. Just amazing work. Peter you made a really nice build of the Lionel Factory.

The details adds a nice dimension to a photo.  Where did you get the gas pump?

Ebay, where else? Keil Line - https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.htm...s+pumps&_sacat=0

Paper is the only convincing way to go. I did that on my last layout. These were from the internet. I alter and add things to them from other photos using M.S. excel. Lots of copy n paste. Some parts were glued on that I decided to change after I printed out the main photo. You can size stuff as needed too. The pump area is lighted with a Walthers 12v H.O. lamp for the night crew to fill the S2, 44 ton, SW1 and MP-15 diesel switchers.

Very nice Alan. It looks just like an old hangar at my local airport. You might put a windsock on the roof. In the early days of aviation, a town's name was sometimes written in large letters on the roof. I would also like to see the choice of airplanes stored inside...

MELGAR

Alan, Thanks for the follow up pictures. How did you ever make that roof?  There use to be several small airfields around here when I was a kid. They had hangars like that. Thanks.

Tom

Thank you Tom. I used corrugated styrene for the roof and front and back radiused frame pieces. I used two plain pieces for the middle frame sections. I used the ACU arc to cut the radius. I trapped the roof on the sides with 1/8 inch styrene angles. 

Tell me about it Dave.... I had to order 18 more packs of walls for this and that might not be enough...

Frozen foods warehouse... I think it’ll be 59 panels total and I’m only building 3 walls of it...

I like these pieces for making models of brick buildings. But I have never built a model from them because they require numerous pieces and it gets expensive...

MELGAR

Yes, if you try to build big buildings the cost gets crazy. I probably should have just built it out of styrene and brick sheets, but somehow, I have a feeling the DPM building will come out looking better.

 Wow STeve, this already looks great'.. I would love to see more..  Thinking of using some of your ideas'... Your road work looks amazing so far'...Your buildings likewise'...👍👌

Steve, I'm looking to see the new layout with the road work 2 RL tracks and that great structure in it... They were in your post. But they disappeared...?????

The Plasticville cathedral that my wife painted for me. Thanks to Peter for sending me close up photos of the one on his club layout so we could duplicate it.IMG_8595IMG_8596IMG_8597IMG_8598IMG_8599

Brad,

Your wife did an amazing job. Her work made a toy-like structure look very convincing. Please show us the church once you install it on your layout. 

Dave

Definitely!  I am doing the back as sheet styrene but all the other walls have been pretty cost prohibitive.  My other buildings for my city area are all OGR Ameritowne with modifications planned to give them more variety.

Good Stuff!

I finally finished printing all the pieces to make the 3 story stair case for the House Beside the RR. I had to split the stair so 6 scale inches of step would be attached to the railing and the rest of the steps as a second part. I did this so I could 3D print it all without having any supports on the spindles. Removing supports from small parts often results in destruction of the support AND the parts. This greatly complicated the printing. Also complicating the printing was finding spindles that would actually form properly with enough strength to be handleable. The cellar door is 3D printed. The wall it's on is styrene sheet and the other wall is foam core. I'm going to use foam core for most of the interior walls. I've also printed fancy baseboards. Of course, none of this stuff will be very easy to see in the building.

HBTRR Staircase completed

I will build up all the walls surrounding the stairs and install the whole thing as a module. There is also a railing surrounding the opening in the attic floor. Designing and printing the reverse-curved railing was a challenge.

HBTRR Attic Rails

After some more design work, I found that I need one more railings set to guard the space into the stairwell on the second floor. I will print another attic rail set since I already know that it will print perfectly and then cut what I need to do this little bit more.

Joe,

The customer did not want any doors. I will just add a few small details and that is it. I will construct a control tower to go with the hanger.

Just finished a two stage desalting tank (standard product line). Customer wanted some water rust around fittings.
