lok pretty cool man!cant wait to see it finished,but what is that octagonal structure,its really cool looking.--josh
Bigsteel: The octagonal structure is the water tower. In northern regions we had to cover them in; I'm not sure if we added heaters to them or not. In Perth, the base of the water tower was stone as stone was a popular local building material, but it was all more round.
Will: glad to see Robin's buildings being used so well.
re intoductory dioram
Great start there.
I am modelling early 1900's in HO ( I know - horribly oversized - but meets my needs for parts I can see) and was wondering if you had any plan drawings for the octagonal water tower?
Timbob: there was a plastic kit for the enclosed water tank in HO (Park Model Products? about 30 years ago) and I think they still show up second hand. I know I have one in my collection of boxes.
If there is a power packconnected , it's not technically a diorama
Nice work, I like the contrast between the 2 sides of your "diorama".
I have a 25" x 36" layout, a call it a live diorama.
Nice work Will:thumb:
Looks great, Will. :thumb:
Good Job Will . Your talk will blow them away.
It's hard to get good help, isn't it?
Is your mini layout also based on the Credit Valley like your main layout is? I was thinking about building something similar based on local railroads.
Nicely done Will! :thumb::thumb:
It would be nice to see some more of this, from other Gaugers.
