Terry, I'll take two please. Now that you got all the kinks worked out should only take 6 months each. You went right to the source for the pics he does a good job for a cranky old so and so. LOL
Fantastic work from both of you. Did you wind up using the chain that was listed in the build thread, I think it was Tichy but not sure? Thanks for sharing the shots of the build as I had started to wonder if you were still plugging away at it. Pat

I started out with one of those little HO plastic pickle factory kits and then "expanded" it a bit through a few dimensions into what I thought it could/should be....

Here's what the 1st floor interior looked before it was finished - can't seem to locate a pic of that level when finished...



And here's what the roof looks like fromthe inside...



And, here's what the interior of the 2nd floor looks like...



And a view from the end where the tanks are...

Terry, very nice job on the unloader!! I'm especially impressed with the weathering!

Martin, that's some serious scratchbuilding. A couple of questions; what are the 2 "red" things in the first shot, second, how did you know what a pickle factory interior looks like?

Make that 3 questions. How did you make the corrugated roof?

Great work, both of you.

Two red things? On this page in the 1st picture, I guess - the copper basins for washing and processing the cucumbers? 0.05 sheet copper basins with wooden cribbing and legs and drains in the middle. The finished 1st floor has a lot of cucumbers and ladies washing and cutting them up and bunch of other stuff. I have got to locate a decent pic of that.....

I don't! But Grandmother Lauthers made one heck of lot of pickles so just a lot of extrapolation from dozens of crocks in the basement scaled up to a full fledged operation. Wing it!

Corrugated roof - I scored a shoebox of Detail Assoc roofing off eBay when no one was looking and that just a lot of small pieces cut up into 3' wide sections and individually applied over the roof sheathing.

Yes, on this page. I thought they were wash basins, on my computer they have a reddish tint.

Can I assume Lauthers is a family name?

Thanks, George! I just wish I could find the rest of the interior pix! There's just so much more on the 1st floor than in that picture...

And, I only took about 300 pix of this while building it and writing up the article for it.... They're archived somewhere....

Yes, Terrell, Lauthers is one of several family names that I can lay claim to by several convoluted routes,

I'll post another structure eventually from different branch of the family..........

Pat , the chain is the same Tichy item that was recommended some time ago by RRL members .

BTW , the machine does ride on wheels and track . While I have built the trucks and wheels , I won't install them until I get ready to complete the dock scene .

Martin,

Here are some pictures of my pickle works -- Devon's Dills, named after our oldest granddaughter. It was also based on the styrene kit, but scratchbuilt in wood in HO Scale.

The second Hulett is about 30% done .

Jerry,
Really well done, and I love the pitted-peeling rust weathering! I'd be very interested in knowing how you got the effect.

Martin, That interior is very nicely done, but the roof and rafters... man.. that's fantastic. Overall, a really well done build! Thanks for sharing the interior pictures per our requests.
