Dave:cool purchases. That car would look neat sitting by a depot. The bulldozer looks a little
Like the one my Dad ran as a Seabee in the South Pacific. Your doing good with that new loco. I've gotvthe smaller one and my son is going to attach the wires for me. Even in On30, those plugs are just a little small for my eyesight to plug them in. The same goes for my Bachmann connie. Just can't seem to see good enough to plug them in. I love your tipple.keep at ir.

Congrats on the promotion David. the dozers are really close to an American dozer. I forget which one but the Japanese built them under license before the war.

Thanks Larry, I figured the 'dozer was "close enough", especially if it is tucked away somewhere.
Cheers,
Dave

I did a little more work on the mine structures. Added a roof to the tipple shed, some rafter tails, and re-painted the tar paper and exhaust stacks. I think I still need to make the tar paper more faded and I realize that in my haste to post some pictures, I didn't get around to weathering the exhaust stacks. I did add a little more weathering to the bottom of the hoist shed though. The strapping holding on the tar paper hasn't been glued down yet - still trying to see if I like it.
As usual, any comments, welcome.
Cheers,
Dave

David,

There is a lot to like in your workmanship. Your treatment of siding and roof look quite realistic. I don't think you need the boards on the roof but that is your call, of course.

Mike

Mike, I like the idea of the boards on the roof but I think they are too large. They are scale 2x4s, maybe I should try 1x2s....or the roof looks too nice to warrant additional fastening. Thanks for looking.
Philip, thanks for looking as well.
Cheers,
Dave

Here's a little more progress on the mine (now apparently called #2). For the number I just cut it out from what I printed on the computer then stippled/dry brushed some white onto the building.

Cheers,
Dave

Very nice modeling Dave.
Interesting the difference in color of two of the photos. One the 2 is faint, the other more obvious. Both show some very nice weathering.
I did give some thought to the boards on the roof before Michael mentioned them. I tend to agree. To my eye they seem to stand out too much. You work is so good, maybe I should keep my comments to myself.

Ed, thanks for the comments. It's good to get feedback, good or bad, to keep on the right track. I think the first photo was a bit washed out from the flash. I did go back over the number with some white to bring it out a bit more.
Cheers,
Dave
