Fine assembly, Chuck. It's never too easy to put things together at a slight angle as in this front window.

More progress to report on the scale house. I built the remaining three walls. I still have to add gables, ceiling, and floor. After I get those parts built, it will be a turn in the paint booth followed by working on the lighting. I also have to build the scale and paint a figure for it.

That's a neat looking little structure, chuck. What type of roofing do you envision?

Bruce,

I am planning to use 3-tab shingles from Rusty Stumps. Of course, I have to buy some.

As always Chuck, you can make any project special... no matter how modest... looking very good... anxious to see the finished product... in fact, maybe you should get it posted to the GSD website!

It seems like I've been talking about building the weigh beam for my scale house for a long time. I had to draw it, first, so I could plan what I would use to build it. I had to make a few adjustments to the drawing, since the styrene pieces I planned to use didn't look right proportionally. I am pretty pleased with the final result.

First off is a photo of a prototype weigh beam that was located in Paducah, KY. I like this shot since it is straight on and nothing in shadow. I had a good sense of what the overall dimensions of the weigh beam were, but no the individual pieces. I used this photo as the underlay for my drawing.



Below is my model. In addition to the weigh beam, I also built a signal bell, which is shown to the right of the penny.



Now, I have to figure out what color to paint it. If I paint it too dark, you won't see the details. But, from what I've seen, most of them are dark in color. But, I will keep looking around in my research.

A lot of machine tools were either light gray or pale institutional green, so you could claim a B&B laborer borrowed a can of paint from the machine shop at the nearest enginehouse...

Chuck that a great job.

I would think about the light green or gray also. No need to hide all that detail,

I love it and would vote for light green too. It's really a standard machine color.
