The first picture on page 6 looks really good to me. It shows up your hard work on all those window panes quite well. Looks realisticly lit to me also.

The other industry on "the hill" will be a feed and grain. I started with two Rix kits (one of which is just a silo extension).



The parts consist mainly of 90 curved panels which you glue six to make a circle, making 15 circles which you then stack, 9 for one silo 6 circles for the other.



I painted them first with a brown primer, then silver, then dulcote. Then sanded lightly to expose the brown to start the weathering process.



Then finished with a wash of Rust-All



The kit with the elevator done and a building donated by Drew in the approximate position that it will be in when I'm done.

Tyson, I love the night shots you posted earlier in the week. Those are really neat! Likewise for the silos. Great job of weathering - they look like some silos in/around the KC area.

Thanks guys! Bruce don't feel bad I seem to work in spurts, I didn't get anything done for months before this last round of progress.

The silos look great!
I built one of the Rix Quonset huts and will have to try your finishing techniques.
Thanks,

When Drew switched scales he sent me a bunch of N-scale stuff he no longer needed including this building:





I like everything about it, the colors, weathering ect. Don't want to change a thing. The only thing I did to it was to seal up some corners and paint the iside black in a couple of places to stop light leaking out. Then added the lights and a few people and bags of seed and now we see them burning the midnight oil at Allison's Feed & Seed :





And a shot with it placed in the approximate position on the layout. Appears to be getting busy up on the hill!

You're right, Mike. That's a great looking little structure. Drew did a nice job with it. Your adding the interior lighting is a very nice touch.

BTW: what's Drew up to these days? We haven't heard much from him lately.
