PROGRESS ON THE BLACK HAWK BOILER WORKS AND MACHINE SHOP


I haven't done a large amount of modeling in the past month,
due to all the fun stuff going on - holidays, travel, seeing family and friends,
and being in a general "taking it easy and celebrating" mode.

However, model building did not stop altogether,
and I have made some progress on the Black Hawk Boiler Works and Machine Shop scene.






I was playing, er, switching cars around Black Hawk, and this was a lot of fun.

But, the large empty lot on the left side of the Black Hawk station grounds,
is crying out to me to get the Boiler and Machine Shop building finished this winter!






After playing with various mockups,
I finally settled on which building kits I would use to make the boiler works and machine shop scene.

I ended up using about 5 building kits, all modified one way or another,
to create the Black Hawk scene






This is a mockup of the boiler works and machine shop, on its scenery base.

I used gator board to support the model, and I will do all detailing on my workbench before mounting it on the layout.

There is still plenty of weathering to do on the structures, but this scene is starting to take shape
