Larry, It is all fitting in so well. The details is excellent. I think your sop crew shop at the same poster store mine do on my North American layout.

Larry,
The overhead line looks nice. The supports are very detailed.
The Tyvek belt looks great!

Scott thank you. I was very pleased when I saw the supports for the overhead line being so detailed. Hopefully the Tyvek belts turn out as nice going to the machines.

Dave thanks glad you like them. Bought those from Crow River Products as part of an overhead pulley set or you can buy them at 4 per package for about $2.50 and they are made out of pewter. They did take some mild filing to clean them up a little. I'm very pleased with the look.

Nice work on the boiler plate Larry. Look good now.
I like the overhead pulley system. Looks fiddly to do, but certainly needed for a belt driven workshop.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Robert thank you for the compliments. Yes the overhead was a little fiddly, but came out nice. Connecting the belts from the machines to the shaft will also be fiddly; just taking my time with them.

Yannis thanks for stopping by; nice to hear from you. Thank you for your kind words; much appreciated.

Another nit: Need some grease splatters underneath the two pulleys/wheels on the steam engine. This is coming out really great, and the little details add a lot to the overall appearance. I'm taking careful note for what's working for when I get back to my Wichendon Machine Shop build...

Dave thanks. I'll have to see about adding before those grease spots as you suggested before I go much further.

Roland I had not. Don't really know what they are or their purpose. If you'd care to share that would be great.

Here is a small update:



The line shaft has been glued in place. Also added a top plate around the top of the walls.
I've built enough structures in real life over the years to know that they are needed to tie in all of the walls thereby making the building stronger and it worked for the Shop also.
Sadly I don't think that I can now anything more to the line now that's glued in place as Roland had suggested.
The drill press has been weathered and glued to the floor. Added some metal shavings to the drill table as well as the floor beside it. The first overhead belt was cut, painted, and glued in place made from Tyvek which was painted with raw sienna; this made for a nice "leather" look.
The Tyvek make really nice belts but they are a little tricky to install.

Next up will be adding the belt to the vertical steam engine before starting on the front machines. As always any comments/suggestions are much appreciated.
