Joe and Cletus, here is a link to Karl's tutorial on stone making:
http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8357

I believe he said this is the same method he used to make the base of the water tower.

Thank you Mike (and Karl ). While it might be a bit tidious for most N-scale projects I am sure I can find a retaining wall or two to try the process on.

Hi Ron,

Thanks. It's a board-by-board work caboose built from a photograph. As I recall, I did weather mine a little more than the one in the photo.

Hi Joe,

Thanks. The stone depot and water tower were built from individual stones made from hydrocal. It was before I discovered Sculpey Polymer Clay which I use now. The Sculpey is much less of a mess - the hydrocal creates so much dust.

The others are castings from homemade or commercial molds.

Excellent work Karl.




Hi Cletus,

Thanks. Check the reply to Joe - he also wanted to know about the stonework.

Hi All
New member here. I just want to say I am in awe of some of the work I have seen here tonight. There are truely some talented modelers out there. I thought I would post a picture of an engine I recently scratch built. This is a GE 132 ton centercab engine that was built for Ford and later sold to the Wellsville Addison & Galeton RR.
If anyone is interested in the build process for this engine I have a step by step on my website under the "How to" link

Dan,
That is a terrific centercab! I enjoyed the 'how-to' on your website.

Dan, yes, good job on the center cab. I especially liked the "make your own ground foam" how-to on your web site, too.

Very good indeed Dan, love the paint job as well.

I note you do custom decals, now thats very interesting indeed as I might just need some for my 0n30 logging layout. click the logo below.

A progress photo of a project I started months ago as part of one of the challenges....well the deadline to get it done for the Northwest logging Modelers Convention is Wednsday...still have a bunch of little parts and strapping to add....also need to finish al the NBW's on the accompanying gondola. Under the department of hidsight is 20/20...I wish I had used "CN Grey" or "Grime" as primer, rather than "Foundation"...oh well...live and learn. My current hold-up is I cant decide whether to do it with or without the awning over the door...leaning towards without so as not to "clutter" it up.

Marc,
You are the Construction Foreman, but for what it is worth, I like the looks of that awning.

Yes, I agree, the awning looks good...like what a backwoods logging outfit would do.

Marc, when and where is the Northwest Loggers Convention? I should know since I live in the northwest....

Excellent work on the car, Marc! The awning is a tough choice since the car looks great both ways. However, I'd probably leave it off if it were up to me.
