Sorry, Frederic, I was late seeing your question. The lathes are scratch built. Some of them I had built for an HO shop and converted them to tabletop lathes for the O shop. Or enlarged the beds to make them suitable.

Wonderful work (I just made my way through the 19 pages). Love the detail. It's this sort of work that has me eyeing my way toward O-scale narrow gauge (probably when I move to my last homestead). You've got a good eye for photo composition. Love the backdrop - at least it eliminates the distractions - at least you thought about it.

I've been working on this building for over a month now. I have two problems, the first is I don't know what I'm going to do with it. I'm posting on this thread because there is a possibility I may use it on the layout. The other problem is that I don't know what the building is going to be. I have visions of some kind of repair shop but I don't know what. It has to be something I can purchase details for, without a huge expenditure, or I can scratch build easily and in quantity. It could tie into the railroad in some way but I also don't believe it has to. It will be on the outer edge of the layout. Anyway, while I'm thinking about it (like I haven't been for the past month) here's some early progress shots.

It started with a mold I made some years ago using a Plastruct cinderblock sheet. It didn't work out too well for cinderblock, too uneven, some I'm redefining the "mortar" lines to make it more like cut-stone.





I then cut the walls to size and cut out the window/door openings.





Then a little I/A wash.




The walls were glued together, windows made and interior walls added.





Then the roof.




And here we are.
IF it goes on the layout here's where it will go.










Any thoughts or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Looks good. I hope you find purpose for her.

It's only make-believe

Good looking building. I think it could be just about any kind of small shop or company selling things like tires, auto parts. Maybe a repair shop.

Well, I did make one decision. Whatever it is, it needed a floor.

Yeah, Ted, I'm trying to figure that out, too. That's the office, there's a small opening at the bottom of the window where work orders, tickets, ham sandwiches or what ever can be passed out to the work floor.

For the record, I think I've decided what the building is going to be..... a Cooperage.

I'm working on making it look like one now.
