Two more updates. I have the machines "finally" finished, with the benches, shelves and junk still to add.

Very nice modeling of the machinery for the shop.[:-thumbu][:-thumbu]

You wouldn't by chance remember who makes the details such as the lathe.



hi John,
Thank you. The machines are by Scale Structures Limited. I usually get them off ebay, but Jaks Industries sells them,

To Bob, Fred and others. Thanks. It as been quite a while getting to this stage. Having to work in such a small area, trying to position the machines so they will work I found more difficult than first expected. I have uploaded a few shots of a much larger machine shop I did in the early '90's.

Tony,
Great pictures of both the small and larger shop.[:-thumbu][:-thumbu]

Also while I think of it, I have following your work over at the FSM Yahoo Group for years and wonder if you might post a few pictures of your other builds here on RR-L when you get a chance.

We have a vehicle forum where boats can be shown.
As I know that you also model these and since the forum is not scale specific how about a few pictures of your work here.

http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=85

We also have a thread for structures that you have scratch built so you could add a few here.

http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8355

One favor please, please do not link to the fsm site as those who are not members will not be able to see the pictures.

No rush as I know you want to finish the current project but if you find some time I am sure others would be interested in seeing your work.

John,
Thank you. I won't post links as you ask, didn't even think about it really. Anyway, when I get some time, I will certainly do as you suggest and post some other pictures. It would be a pleasure. I am delighted to know I am being "watched" [:-bigeyes][:-bigeyes2][:-bigeyes2] on other sites.

Tony I was just over on the photo gallery of things you have scratch built and saw your chain fall. I sure wish you had done a how-to on that motor hoist. Thats fantastic as well as your whole project on this thread. Outstanding workmanship!

Thank you Louis. I wish I had a digital camera at the time I was doing it. But really, it was straight forward. If I get some memory cells working again, and I find a drawing I made, I will see if I can post it. But don't hold me to it just yet.

Thanks Fred. The larger one was actually my first machine shop. I really enjoyed building that one. I will have to post some pics of it later in another section. The small one was really quite a challenge, that at times, I thought I wasn't going to get it right, or it wasn't going to work, that it was just too small. In reality, it is too small, but, I made it work.[:-glasses]

Here are some latest updates. I think this part is finished now, at least for the most part.

I thought I would share some pictures of the latest area I finished on Bulger's Garage. It has been a while because of a recent 2 month challenge to build something, and that was a welcome relief from this model for a while. Notice the rolls of paper. Also the plumbing that goes into the wall from the sink. The chain on the commode, is from a piece of discarded jewelry. I tried to get some pin-ups as was probably common in this time, but my printer wouldn't re-produce them small enough to show any detail. The small one is the best I could do, next to the plumbing.

The work bench is cut down from a casting by Rusty Rails, as I wanted to add some detail underneath. I also added a few of my own castings.

The commode and tank are plaster castings I made, which was a test to see if the plaster would better represent the porcelain bowls they are really made of. The casting is a little rough, but I think I got the look I was after.

Very nice, Tony. The scene with the man in front of the mirror is outstanding, and I have never seen something like that modelled.

Thank you Frederic. Of course, I'd love to be able to do the detail you have done in your garage. I know it is a different scale, but wow! I am starting on the tire rack and air compressor, and am taking your idea, so I hope you don't mind. Won't be exactly the same, but the scene you created was great. I already made the 12 compartment cubby hole for a bench later.

Thank you very much Tony. I'm glad you loved the scene, but I can't say I created it, since I just tried to make the same thing as Chuck Doan on his Red Oak Garage. As I mentionned in another thread, trying to follow such masters requires a steady hand but not lots of imagination...
