Good Morning Everyone,
Alan, excellent, as always. Amazing details, looks so real.
That is a model of a tank that the company I work for had replaced the bottom and the top two shell courses. It was located at the Hess refinery in a Port Reading, New Jersey.
The tank measured 36 feet in diameter by 42 feet high.
Alan, building like no one else!
Onto the next project......……….........…….
Excellent work guys!
Steve, Interchange looks great with the lights. Looking forward to your bridge. Steve what is that color paint? Looks great for old concrete. Boilermaker1 nice buildings, great colors and nicely done.
Lol! So you must be a "runner" now if also thrilled in "bungee jumping" would you have called the first establishment the "bung hole"?
Well, I'm not into bungee jumping, so I wouldn't know. Also, someone might mistake it for a store selling barrel plugs.
A Runhole is a runner who neglects their family, friends and/or significant others while training for a race, a very appropriate name for a running store, and might also be somewhat representative of the guy who built it.
A couple under construction buildings slowly coming together. Groepler's Carpentry and Dupree's Mining Supply
As a result of building Scrounger's Baseball Field, the bulldozers and back hoes were hard at work on my layout today transplanting a bunch of trees. LOL.
Here are some photos of the transplanted trees in different sections of my layout:
Some of my trees were bought already made, and they are probably nicer than my home-made ones, but I had a great time making the home-made trees, going for long walks and finding tall grass/weeds, cutting the tops of them, and finding symmetrical ends of branches and using Woodland Scenics materials to turn them into O Scale trees.
I think my trees are good, but not great. I look forward to improving my tree making technique, which will improve the scenery on my layout.
Great stuff here!
Finished 12 building fronts. All have 1 inch sides and lights. All fronts are made with OGR panels cut and re-glued together in different configurations.
I use LED strips and end the connections at a European style terminal. crimping wire ferrules works great with the terminals.
