:bg:Next off the bench is a stone scratch built two story building. It is not quite finished but I'm going to post some pics of the build so far. The building is going to be a small bell foundry. The proprieter is John Hells. So the sign on the front will read "Hells Bells".

 

















The structure is made up of Tom Yorke castings from some years ago. The decks and stairs are scratch built as are the large doors and tracks. The boom is srcatch as is the traveling block. It was weathered using the salt method. The rof tin is homemade and rusted in Archer Ecthant. The stone and wood is a combination od acrylic paint and oil base stain. The stairs and decks are darkened with Builders in Scale Silver Wood  stain. The part that I think turned out well is the joining of the walls. Several cuts had to be made to lengthen wall sections and then hide the joints at the corners and in the straight sections. Anyway here it is and now will take up residence next to some coke ovens on one side and "Noisy Creek" on the other side.

Looking good, real good.

It's amazing what can be done with Tom Yorke castings, a little imagination and modeling skills.

I like wacky little structures such as this.

Great to see a model of a stone building where the corners are correct!

Very nice job.

hells bells.....oh ya !

Your not kidding when you said you used walls from various Tom Yorke old kits. Plus what looks to be with the board & batton wall an original Tom Yorke Practice wall he used to sell and is now being offered again on ebay.

I also see a rear tavern wall from the #119 pool hall and bordello kit , plus the middle center wall that the stairs to a bordello ran up.  Throw in Yorke #105 the ''out building '' side wall s and rear wall and lastly the very rare parts for the retaining walls from yorke C-1 kit Hillside Cabin.

great stuff and thats looking really TRICK  !!!!!

I gotta hand out some MOOOOOOOSIES :moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:for this build

:glad::glad:WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW:glad::glad:


All I can say is awesome!! You did a nice job on that, I like the colours you painted the stones, very realistic. Now, as a suggestion, the I beams looks too monochromatic, I can see only two colours, you can try to add some powders in differents rust tones.

Woooow again!!! LMAO

Thanks for the comments guys. You are right Lucas about the decks. I still have a number of things to do yet, wear paterns on the decks along with heavy wear under the hoist. Nail holes and nut, bolt, washer detail to be added to th wood. Needs two stacks and support wires for the foundry operation. The sign over the front deck is under way now.  Mike your right on on the kit pieces. When those came out I was working aat Caboose Hobbies and spent all of my wages picking as much as I possibly could. Those kits a simply fantastic. Anytime someone comes up with a hydrocal structure I find myself using T. Yorke as the old standard.

cliff....did you ever totally finish this structure ?

You did not show a picture of the back side wall with plaster parging running up it , nor the opposite end wall.

Any chance of an update photo or two.

Yes it is done or done more. I have not had hardly anytime to work on anything on my own layout or stuff. I've taken on working on a On3 layout with another friend. He built the layout for a customer and I'm doing the structures. The layout is loosely placed in the 40's and in Chama, New Mexico. The structures are all of the town, mine complex, sawmill, and some small associated buildings. Around 30 in all. Zooming right along, I've got four done. The strucures are primarily Banta, BarMills, and KMP. I hope to post some pics soon. The owner of the layout has had me building rolling stock as well. Amazing how much time it eats up. Sure glad I like doing this kind of stuff. One piece I'm kind of proud of is a small mercury retort, to be used on my layout at the sampling works of the mine.

Nice!
Especially those stairs. It is good to see someone use the correct pitch for stair stringers instead on the old 45º steep ones.

The hobby shop did not have any stringers, so I copied a plan from one of my constructions practices books, reduce it and there is the template. Cut them out of a scale 2 x 14. Works beautifully. I saw the hint on free rails I believe for using full scale plans from books and just reducing to the appropriate scale. I saw one for a picnic bench which looked extremely easy, but have not done it yet.
