Discussion in 'N / Z Scale Model Trains' started by TrainsWinnipeg, Aug 13, 2005.

  1. The starting--- track plan added

    Of the first bit of model work i have done in some years. Going to do a small town diorama, and what better place to start then with the grain elevator.
    Have included a few pics of the starting.


    The overview of this building


    Little blurry but using a gray wash on the roof panels. Trying to make it look a little decrepid.

    Nice job.

    You know... could take some of those "My Little Pony" stickers and stick them on the side. Add some playground equipment and a chainlink fence around them to keep the bad guys out, voila, instant renovated grain elevator turned into a daycare.

    Humm, the rail traffic wouldn't be any good. Scrap that idea.

    Unless you wanted to ship the kids in on passenger trains.
  8. I didnt even realize they where sitting there. I would have to fight my youngest for those.

    Did a little more of the trim last night, and edged the roof with a thin line of black to seperate it a little better.

  9. Here is some of the progress that was made today. Painted the hinges on the doors, filling hose, roof details. Next things are people and some details, and i guess i should attach it to the base.
    The overall front view
    Back Side of elevator, i can see some touch ups are needed:)
    And one of the whole set on the trackside

    What grade will you be using to go from one level to the other EH&S
  15. as i found out today after some land bartering, NONE! i have been granted a 12' x 12' room. Now the nice part is i still have most of the layout that used to be 14'x12' so with some modifications to fit i wont need a helix of any sort:) ill post up the track plan to it later this evening.:thumb:
  16. Ok well here is a really rough sketch of what it will look like. 2 sections are already up, and the rest are just waiting for some trimming to fit the new room. :wave:

  17. Ok little more work done on the elevators.


    darker shot with lights, sorry its a little blurry
