SRMW TUCKER & COOK MILL - 2021 Build Challenge
« on: January 01, 2021, 10:12:22 AM »

For the 2021 build challenge I have chosen the SRMW Tucker & Cook Cotton Mill.  I plan to build it as a Crew Quarter's for my Superior & Seattle Railroad. Let the fun begin - the box is coming down off the shelf.

Nice one, John!

Nothing like a South River Modelworks kit to get us all salivating.

Cheers, Mark.

Nice one John. I have this kit in my stash. Once I have finished my current build I am planning on building the mill down the road from yours - the SRMW Delabarre Woolens. If you are using it as your crew's quarters are you planning on a kit bash or building it as per the instructions?

That was a fun build. I still have the diorama and I stare at it every day.


John, you'll have great fun with this one.
