A shot from the dockside, with a chimney placed, to see how they will work.

Hello all.

I got a little done and decided to re create door casting so I might have one side open.

I got rafter tails installed and am working my way around the structure...

Busy in the 1:1 so it's slow going right now...

Here's the chimneys... coming together...
4 sided castings, pretty rough, but look good after plastic putty and paint.

Finials are fanciful but cool and give the station a classic look.
Adding rafter tails and small roofs next...

Hope you all are doing well.
More to follow.

Hi Mikel  :wave:


Great to follow your build of a real 'classic' !  :thumb:


Those vintage 'craftsman kits' often have that very illusive 'something' ...  L:

... which is exactly what folks want & looks awesome in a scene !


Your builds are a delight to watch happen Mikel !  :cool:


:java::moose:

Nice build,

the roof lines scream heavy snow!
