Just received a Model Masterpieces 6 Stall Como Roundhouse Kit. 


The kit appears complete (came in 2 boxes) and I got 5 pages of plans,
but all the assembly instructions are missing. 

Anyone out there assembled this kit and kept the instructions? 

Or...anyone have the kit and instructions willing to make copies of those instructions?


Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

Hi Wayne,

I can send you some instructions.

My kit only came in one box,
as the special Colorado centennial edition model.

I'm pretty sure there were two releases of this kit,
which explains why your version came in two boxes.

I assume you have pages 3, 4, 5 and 9 which are the plans.
Not sure of what the 5th page is.

I can send them as PDF's if that is OK with you.
Do you want them sent to your email.

I won't be able to get to this until tomorrow Tuesday.

Kevin

Thanks a million.

I got 2 boxes because it is a 6 stall kit.
101 is the 3 stall kit and the 2nd box is the extra 3 stalls.

I got pages 3, 4, 5 which are drawings.
I got 3 copies of page 5.
No page 9 (or 1 & 2).

Also, many broken pieces,
and some parts replaced by home made casts
(there are 3 rubber molds included!!!)

I saw the Centennial Kit,
at Southwest Hobbies in Scottsdale = $250,
with no description as to contents.

PDF works fine for me.

Thanks,

Wayne

Attached are photos of what I've been able to do so far. 

The light yellow sections are original, other colors were made from molds.

Update: the kits turned out to be severely altered.

All the metal castings were missing.
Most of the hydrocal castings, had been replaced with plaster of paris castings.
All the roof die-cut inserts were missing.
One set of windows were missing, as well as the instructions.

Thanks to Kevin Fall for sharing his instructions, so that I could continue.

The concrete colored strip along the base is a scale 2'x2' to resemble a concrete footing,
to elevate the door arches so that an HOn3 brass locomotive,
with the permanent Ridgeway cinder catcher, can clear the doorway.

Wayne - this looks like it's gonna be a spectacular roundhouse. 

Have you been able to find a source for the missing detail pieces? 
Your windows and doors can probably be found at Tichy Train Group

https://www.tichytraingroup.com/Shop/tabid/91/c/ho_masonry-windows

I've found their parts to be at least equal in quality to Grandt Line. 

The link I gave you is for HO scale masonry windows. 
Not sure what your plans call for. 

It would be interesting to hear the story behind the kit you received. 
Have you discussed it with the dude you bought it from?

- Tom
