Dill's Market
« on: August 21, 2017, 03:17:55 AM »
Hi all,
I just joined the forum, as I am starting to on a HOn30 Louisiana sugar cane layout. I do not have much experience with craftsman kits .., the only one I have made up to now is Dill's Market by American Model Builders. I had changed it a bit as it was intended for a small Alaskan diorama. This is what I came up with:

Cheers,

Jeroen

Welcome to the Forum Jeroen, Moose Airlines looks good . You're in the right place if you want help , advice , a friendly word or just to look at builds of craftsmen kits.

I love photo's, don't we all.

Welcome aboard, Jeroen.  Nice structure. Blue is a hard color to get right, but it looks great on the building.  Did Moose Air Lines have puddle jumpers or an old DC-3?

Jereon,

Welcome to the forum. Yes, your first structure looks great and Jeff is correct about the blue. You pulled it off. Well done.

Jereon,
          Welcome aboard.  You know even tho you're new here, if you keep showing great pics of awesome looking structures like the Moose Air Lines.  I'm going to have to start bugging you everyday for modeling advice.

That's why most of my other seriously grey haired forum brothers no longer have working phones at home anymore! ;)  Thanks for sharing!  Thanx Thom...

Jereron,


Welcome. I believe we recently crossed paths on FB. I love the structure and the Alaska vibe is a modeler's dream.

Welcome to the forum Jeroen!

Great build!  Love the subtle weathering and touch of rust on the roof panels.  Well done all around!

Thanks for all the kind words and yes, it is my only craftsman kit up to now. Did some European stuff in 009 (1:76 on 9mm track) as well, like this little French dio with handpainted figures.





The loco is a 0-4-2T Decauville which I designed myself and is 3D printed.

Good to see some familiar names here as well and yes, Moos Air Lines was intended to have puddle jumpers ... unfortunately they are a bit hard to find in HO scale for the right era ...
Cheers,

Jeroen
