That's very effective Woodie. The amount of light looks just right with the shadow areas balancing the lit.

Howdy Woodie :cb:


Great stuff with the repair shop ! :bg:


That wouldn't happen to be a Life-Like 'Old Timers' Model-T would it ?

I just bought one of those anyway, looks pretty cool !


The building looks neat, or should I say, Messy ;) as well !

That junk in those mining repair shops just builds up & up !!

The big-block engine is cool, I guess that might be out of a tank, or maybe a Spitfire ?

Who knows, those crazy miners & loggers will butcher anything that burns gas ! :shocked:


Be great to see a helicopter shot, to see the overall size & how it fits on the lift out.

Demanding, aint I.


I think I recognize the shop as maybe not all, but part of, your repair shop that got moved a couple of times on the Mogollon.

Yep, I am trying to follow the story. :cool:

Hello Woodie,
I don't mean to nitpick, but is the workshop OSHA and EPA compliant? I think I can see some potential spills and unprotected  machinery, so you may need to revise the model some.
I enjoyed seeing your modeling, and thank you for sending the progress updates!

Did OSHA exist in the 30's? ;)

Rick, 
You're correct - OSHA wasn't created until 1974. However, I think the IRS was around during Woodie's modeled era, so maybe he needs to model that!:P

Si, that is a Lindberg Model T, still manufactured (along with a 32 Model A and some others) and bears a "Lindberg 1957" stamp under the running boards. And you got it right, that big block comes from a Tiger I believe, it just looks neat and what else am I gonna do with it?
Keith, the OSHA inspector was found hanging under the Pinos Altos bridge...a fatal mistake he made after "inspecting" the bridge at night! EPA? Say what? And the IRS, my old Triumph had that-Independent Rear Suspension. The IRS has something to do with rear ends?

Woodie,
It sounds like Silver City is a town OSHA inspectors, Prohibition Agents, and probably diesel salesmen visit at their own peril!
As for your remark about "the IRS having something to do with rear ends?" - that is a joke-rich area for sure, but I won't go there - model trains are a lot more fun!

Current administration will kill EPA on last day of 2018, so if you can make it 'til then you will be safe.

Here is a comparison of the Plastruct "Spanish Tile" roofing VS an authentic 1:35 scale mold sent to me by Daniel Caso. I believe this mold was made with individual tiles...and I am able to make it look old and funky, and very realistic.



The above is what the new roof looks like.



Here is a comparison of the Plastruct product (good stuff, all I had before) and the new cast roof. I made the roof with Durham's Water Putty and painted it with a Terra Cotta powdered chalk.

And many thanks to Daniel for the mold, now I will put this tile on everything! Well, maybe NOT everything...but...

Whatever you did in Post No.670 did the trick, cos I didn't touch it.


:bg:


Si.


EDIT - Whoops, looks like you musta deleted your Post No.670...

...anyways, pix are at SUPERPANAVISION size now. ;)

Nice tiles ! :cool:
