A little progress on my distraction.

I have the trestle glued together and a good start on the ore bin. I need to do more weathering but I will need to figure out what we are mining first.

Nice construction of the ore bin. All of the mitered cuts look perfect.

Thank you for stoping in Ray, Frederic, Bryan, Andy, Ron Rick and George.

Mulling over the other buildings for the scene.





Thoughts on the buildings?

I know I need to work on the weathering for the power plant. My story right or wrong is the power plant will generate electric power for the mine.

Thanks Rick,

While I wait on structure feedback I am going to try to model this water tank I found in BC. It looks like it would fit in the scene.

You've managed to pack a lot into a small area but it doesn't look overly crowded.
I think it looks fine.

Yeah, somehow that composition looks really good! Like a bunch industrial stuff crammed together the way it should be crammed together. Just looks right!

And, dang fined work on the curvedy [sic] trestle!!

Rick and Dallas thank you for the feedback.

While the jury is out I started the water tank. I had to make it a little taller as the prototype is on a hill.



I still need to finish the weathering, add nail holes, remove some fur and add hoses and piping but at least I am making progress.
