CUSTOMER REQUEST FOR PICTURES

Recently a customer asked for some additional pictures of the Steel Shed with Windows kit, so I thought I would share them with you all.

FREEBIE file correction

One of our sharp-eyed N Scale builders noticed that there was a missing sheet in the N Scale STEEL SHED w/WINDOWS download and the sheet that was there was a duplicate.  Well to all, “SORRY ‘BOUT THAT”!  It’s been fixed.  I’ll try to be more careful.

Keeping busy

Maybe a bit too busy. I’ve been a commuter lately, with a suburban client. It’s cut into my model designing and building time. BUT. I am getting all kinds of new inspiration by all of the medium industries I’ve been rolling through as I ride the Metra. The Mars candy company has a big modern plant, they even have their own station. Theres also a very busy grain elevator right in the city just west of down town. There always seems to be a few covered hoppers on the siding and a very used looking Plymouth switcher. The tracks are so crowded with hoppers, I can’t see how anything gets shunted around.

Pretty cool scenes though. I’ve been shooting lots of pix and once again the realization that there is a prototype for everything. Imagine a line of qounset huts that are stagered on an angle and overlapping.

What a wierd structure. I havent been able to get a good pic yet but when I do, I’ll post it here.

I’m looking forward to getting back to building.

MIX & MATCH SCALES for an EFFECTIVE DISPLAY

 

This is a flat that is on display at Park Lane Hobbies in Dyer Indiana.

The vehicles are HO.  These buildings are all based on our American Pipe kit.  The building on the right is O scale and is pretty much stock except for the replacement of the left door with an HO one.  The center and left buildings are HO.  The center one has had a second row of windows added, while the left building is pretty much scratch built from kit parts.  All have had three dimensional piping and structure added to enhance their already outstanding appearance.  So don’t be afraid to mix it up scale wise.
