My latest build:

A Stamp mill in HO scale for my HOn3 layout.

I've made it from plans in the "Old wood and stone buildings​" book.

I CAD converted the drawn plans, and as I have a 3D printer, I printed the timber frame, windows, doors, smoke stack and loading platform.

I then covered the frame with Northeastern wood and the roof with cardboard covered with surgical tape.

The stays for the smokestack are made of piano wire.

The painting is acrylics on mineral spirits soaked wood...
It makes it so nicely weathered.

India​ ink washes to represent rotten wood and shadows etc.

I'm almost finished with the diorama, and will show more pics of the build later.

That is a great looking mill, certainly worth 5 Mooses.

I like how this turned out.  Great weathering and nice details.  What I really want to know is how can that fellow sleep on that freight dock?  What a racket!

Well that is amazing.

I am getting back into railroading after a move.

I have 2 3D printers and want to do what you are doing.

I am going to be modeling the WSLC on a small shelf railroad with room for expansion.
