My first attempt at Digital Bricks
Posted by Nebraskatrevor On 10/10/2018 At 2:24:06 PM
I cant explain why but for several years now I have been wanting to design and build a scale brick building. I have not had a model train in almost 30 years and I have no plans to get one anytime soon but for some reason I want to make little brick buildings....strange I know! At any rate this is my first attempt at making a scale brick wall (HO) and I thought I would post it here to see what the experts think. These are printed on Lazerboard with a fairly special printer that I use for other projects and then laser engraved and cut. No painting, no finishing, no hand work, this is how they come off of the machine. Please let me know what you think. Aside from the fact that they are just a bit glossy I am quite pleased with them. Comments and constructive criticism are welcome!

banta modelworks hillside water tower kitbash
Posted by kebmo On 09/23/2018 At 5:50:35 PM
i bought this kit from banta modelworks, and when i received the kit i realized that i had made a rash decision and the kit as it was, wasn't going to work for me. not that it isn't a quality kit; it most certainly is. i purchased it to put it next to the sierra west scale model woodcutter's shack to service my wood burning loco, but when it got here i knew it wasn't going to work out. it turned out to be too short, didn't come with a spout and the banding was quite cheesy looking.

catalogue picture:



so i set about modifying it so that it would









so now i think i've got something i can use and it didn't end up costing me alot. i think it turned out pretty good. i bought the spout from walt, the turnbuckles and plumbing fittings from narrow gauge modeling co. i do plan on adding a fill pipe, but the wire that came with the kit is too small to be a fill pipe. i picked up a section of aluminum 1/8" tube yesterday and i have a plumbing fitting, so maybe later tonight i'll get around to installing it.
i'd take it outside for some natural light shots but it's so windy today i'm afraid if i let go of it it'll end up in the neighbor's yard...

thoughts? critiques? suggestions?
Dental Alginate for casting molds?
Posted by TC On 09/13/2018 At 9:40:29 PM
If youíve ever had a dental crown done or some other work that required an impression and casting be made of your teeth, youíve perhaps experienced a dentist or assistant using a substance called ďdental alginateĒ to make that mold for the casting/impression of your teeth.

So Iím curious, has anyone used this material to make model castings, and if so, what were your results? I just came into a decent sized can of the powdered mixture, which can be mixed up into smaller or larger amounts as needed. Iíd like to hear what experiences, tips or tricks might be known about how to use the stuff for modeling purposes...
? House Mailbox Suggestion ?
Posted by mecrr On 09/04/2018 At 7:18:51 PM
Folks, anyone have a suggestion of how to model the type of mailbox that attaches to the front of your House besides the front door? Sometimes I have seen a small basket or thin rectangular box used.

I am not looking for the box on a pole that goes out near the street.
Thanks,
David
SierraWest and J.E. Morton's Brass & Iron Foundry
Posted by KKarns On 07/29/2018 At 12:59:59 PM
Featured is SierraWest Scale Model's latest release in HO/HOn3, J.E. Morton's Brass & Iron Foundry...herein referred to as "The Foundry" This amazing kit is comprised of six individual structures integrated into a wonderful manufacturing complex complete with a beautiful resin stone foundry structure. Brett, of SierraWest Scale Models, provides a detailed backstory that gives the The Foundry a meaningful and prototypical workflow.

My plan is to provide updates on a weekly to bi-weekly basis as I work up this gem of a kit.



The first glimpse of The Foundry as it came out of the box. Nicely illustrated box cover...pulse quickens...



Now this is what fine scale modeling and craftsman kits are all about!
This is a picture just as the box was opened and the packing material removed...the box with the picture contains all those wonderful resin and white metal castings! Time to get my hands dirty...

I stumbled across this website and thought I should leave a comment about my Dad who was a man that lived railroad and dedicated his knowledge to anyone interested in model railroading. Ever since I was a baby, we went on every vacation involved with Steam and rode in many cabs around the US. I have many great memories of my Dad living his Rail Life.

If anyone involved in the model railroad life ever met my Dad, they would never forget him.
