Howdy folks,

After a long hiatus (2009 - Cats Head Pier), I am finally building again. Train club officer duties "ate my brain". Alas, I am no longer the CFO.

My best buddy, Joe Batson, asked me to build an On30 logging camp kitchen for him. I gladly agreed, especially since he has helped me get excited about On30 and building.

Although I didn't have plans, I assessed all Joe's requirements (after much tooth pulling) . The model is for Choctaw Lumber in Southeastern Oklahoma. You can see his build thread here http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=37549&SearchTerms=Choctaw. After a lot of research, I finally started the build. This thread will summarize the process. It has been years since I scratch built anything, so this has been a treat and a bit of a challenge.

The model is 40' long and 12' wide. The camp cars rest on two massive skids. The materials used were/are St Albert lumber and wooden coffee stirs. Joe asked that the structures be painted oxide red and weathered. The windows and doors are by Rusty Stumps and Tichy. The design is an amalgamation of many kitchen car designs.

Away we go,
Mike Corley

I'm a slug painting bands black with a felt tip marker, sometimes brown. Thank you!

Thanks Philip. I learned the method in a clinic Dave taught at the 2009 (I think) Craftsman Structure Show. The technique is also shown on the Scotty Mason video series, "http://www.scottymason.com/_p/prd15/2835669091/product/painting-and-weathering-detail-castings.

Have fun,

Mike just getting caught up that kitchen car beautiful.

An the water tank looks to be on the way to being another great project.

What everyone else said. Great job

Very realistic, and well done weathering on that water tank Mike. Outstanding job!
Philip Posted - 03/27/2017 : 11:54:26 PM
Nice graining and weathering!

quartergauger48 Posted - 03/27/2017 : 9:39:39 PM
That is an EXCELLENT water tower Mike'..Beautiful job'..And you're right'. It does seem the smaller the project, the more time it takes'...
friscomike Posted - 03/27/2017 : 6:24:17 PM
Thanks Mark and Mike! It is funny how much time you can spend on one little detail like a water tank.
Michael Hohn Posted - 03/26/2017 : 10:45:48 AM

Your tank turned out great. Nice color and texture throughout.

BBLmber Posted - 03/26/2017 : 05:18:28 AM
Great job on the tank Mike.

friscomike Posted - 03/26/2017 : 01:12:51 AM
Howdy folks,

Since the kitchen and dining room couldn't operate without water, I built a potable water tank for the kitchen, dining room, and other uses. I started with a Morgan Hill Models water tank and detailed the heck out of it. The flat roof was added in lieu of the peaked shingle roof. The ladders are from Rusty Stumps and the hose is scale 1 1/2" water hose made of solder. The tank was painted with grey primer, then A/I, then dry brushed with several different grey tones. The bands were painted using Dave Revelia's technique of burnt sienna water based oil paint followed immediately with a dusting of rust colored pigments.

I had a lot of fun gussying-up this tank.

Happy rails,

Now Joe's lumber jacks can drink clean water and take a shower!

Happy rails,

Howdy folks,

Thanks for the kindness Carl, Jeff, Ray, Mike and Dave. I really enjoyed building the model and sharing it with the group.

Persist and have fun,

It's a beauty!!! Very nice scratchbuild. Love the tall stacks.
Michael Hohn Posted - 02/09/2017 : 08:08:24 AM

Great job. I can almost smell the beans. Mm mm.

I love this kind of structure and you nailed it.
