Hi All,

I'm scratch building a water tower, and I need to make a roof for it, preferably hexagonal. Does anyone have a template for this they can share?

Thanks in advance.

Rookie takes on RDA's J&J Tool
Posted by JWNoank On 03/17/2019 At 8:13:45 PM
New Here, and to repeat just a wee bit from the arrival track, I've been accumulating kits and equipment for over 30 years and the time as come to slay one of the dragons. I selected from the collection RDA's J&J Tool because, to be honest, if I make a complete hash of it I can live with the loss, and if I feel bad about it, an injection molded version still is available. So, without further ado, assuming I can figure out the arcane procedures for posting photos I'll get on with it.

But first a bit of warning: work will probably proceed sporadically at best. I welcome any and all constructive criticism, if you think it might offend then please contact me off line.

OK then:

Hopefully there are two photos of the main stone structure in the clamping stage on the kitchen table. This is one of the first kits I acquired and it has substantial urethane resin castings of no fixed thickness. First step was to square up the backs of the four walls, which prompted my wife to dub this project "The Stinky Building." There was a lot of truing and sanding in an attempt to get opposite sides to match, and a fair amount of material had to be removed. In the end, I think I got fairly close. I used 5-minute epoxy to bind everything together, and used 1/4" strip wood in the corners to reinforce things. Squadron green putty was then applied to disguise the seams. Once that hardened I chipped away at things to try and blend things into a hopefully harmonious whole. I also tried the old plastic ship modelers dodge of using white glue to try and hide a seam where the putty was insufficient or else would contribute to rather than alleviate the problem (I think). I live in hopes that the prime coat will hide a multitude of sins.
And here we arrive at something that I'm not sure about. How best to proceed: should I prime with grey auto primer, or a flat white enamel? Should I then follow with a tan paint? The structure will be sited in Southern New England and I'm sort of using the Bradford Soap factory in West Warwick, RI as a guide (the old Valley Queen Mill: more on that at a later date) and that building is more brownish gray than grayish brown, if that makes any sense.

Ah, bugger it! Can't upload pictures keep getting Operation not allowed. As they say, more to follow

gentlemen i have a 14 inch tall round stove which has the letters NM&Tco buffalo n\NewYork on the top of its lid I was wondering if this is a stove which would be connected to the railroad in your neck of the woods? the only connection to the letters on the top is the NM&Tco railroad in the Appalacias any thoughts would be appreciated

Great site!
Thanks for the willingness to share.
I am tracing my family tree and am searching for NAR employee list/staff.
I have a great uncle who was a chef with a railroad gang and in 1940 was somewhere between Rycroft,Arras, and Edmonton.
George McInnis. Don't know if his work took him to the Alaska Highway build, Canol road, or where.
Anyone have any clues for me to search for staff or employee lists?
Thanks again

I came across the site by accident and was THRILLED to see the RR models for the Shirleysburg area. My Dad grew up in the Shirleysburd/ My Union area as did his dad and his dad befor that. My great-grandfather worked for EBT and the only picture I ever saw of him was of that of him standing by an engine. I love the work (though I've always loved model trains). Thanks you guys for bringing this all back to life!

Stumbled on this site and saw my January 1989 RMC cover shot of Phil Chiavetta's layout. Haven't thought about that for a long time. Thanks for the memories!
