Post by: Janbouli on January 03, 2018, 07:14:26 PM
Normally I would brace the walls , especially when they are thin like these and for N-scale quite large. But there are interior floors with this kit which make it almost impossible to do bracing and I'm hoping the floors will give it enough strength. The walls warped a tiny bit from the painting, so to lay them flat to place windows I taped them to a piece of shelf.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag6.jpg) (http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag6.jpg)

Then I glued in the first piece of the windows and doors so they were flush with the outside of the wall.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag7.jpg) (http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag7.jpg)

When I had done a wall I would hang it to let the glue dry without it sticking to the flat surface of the shelf.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag8.jpg) (http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag8.jpg)

The outside of one of the walls.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag9.jpg) (http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag9.jpg)

When the glue had dried I glued the backs of the doors in place and put some weights on the walls , partly to keep the doors in place , but also to flatten the walls a bit.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag10.jpg) (http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag10.jpg)

More window parts tomorrow.

The walls, doors and windows look really good. All thumbs up here from Central Florida.

Thank you Tom and Curt, the walls might be large for N-scale , those windows are not and the sashes are the thinnest I have ever worked with that don't break.

Post by: Janbouli on January 09, 2018, 03:48:32 PM
I don't like the look of styrene window sheets, and using some kind of clear drying glue is also easier, just carefully fill the gaps by spreading glue with a toothpick.

(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag12.jpg)

I used this tacky glue , went well for these tiny windows but I am going to order some Micro Klear for when I have larger windows to do.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag13.jpg)

Next up was assembling the floors and foundation.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag14.jpg)


(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag15.jpg)

These will be almost impossible to see once the building is done , but I know they're there.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag16.jpg)

I painted the roof black and then stuck the lasercut tarpaper onto the still wet paint.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag17.jpg)
Title: Re: Build Challenge 2018 Republic Locomotive Works American Flag Company N-scale
Post by: Janbouli on January 09, 2018, 03:55:39 PM
The roof and floor sub assemblies.

(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag18.jpg)

Painted the foundation Polyscale Concrete and smeared acrylic textured paste called Beton Effekt Paste I got at a German craftsstore onto the paint , I used a bit of force to smear it to make the somewhat too coarse texture a bit smoother.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag19.jpg)

Now  how to assemble the walls without bracing, not so easy because clamps and such will likely break the walls. So I used magnets and my magnetic board jig , as you can see in the next photo's.

In between going to the bathroom I managed to get some modeling time.

Assembling the walls to the foundation.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag22.jpg)

Tried the roof for fitting , ready to paint.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag23.jpg)

The other side of the structure with all doors and windows in place.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag24.jpg)

While waiting for some painted parts to dry I started on some sub-assemblies like the watertank. An AA penlite was the exact right size , I soaked the wood part in water and then wound it around the pennlite with elastic bands to create the right shape.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag25.jpg)

Some of the subs I made , porch , watertank frame, billboard frame.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag26.jpg)

Glued the watertank sides to the frame , quite easy with the shape already there.

Okay then , N-scale is small and fragile so I took my time cutting loose the lettering of the signs. Very delicately cutting away surrounding pieces till the letters were free. Lasercutting at it's finest , they look excellent.

(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag29.jpg)


(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag30.jpg)

Before painting cornices and trim I had stuck them to transfer tape making installation easy.

Painted the letters white.

Just something to hold while I'm painting the roof buildings.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag33.jpg)

The ladder for the watertank.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag34.jpg)

The instructions in the kit are I believe for the H0 kit, it says use the styrene strips for the watertank , but there are no styrene strips . In stead I used strands of wire.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag35.jpg)

Using CA glue and a lot of patience it was easier then I thought it would be.
(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag36.jpg)


(http://janbouli.com/images/gebouwen/amflag/amflag37.jpg)

Nice job on the water tank. The strands of wire is a neat trick I'll keep in mind. You must have a 10X Opti-Visor to work in "N" scale.

I need one just to see your thread.  ;D ;D ;D

I think strips of styrene work best for larger scales, but in N-scale it's hard to cut styrene thin enough.

I had glasses made for my hobby , they are a sunglass frame with very strong reading lenses in them.

Great job on the structure. It is turning out to be a show stopper. And, all the casting will really bring it to life.

BTW, my eye doctor wouldn't make me special glasses for the hobby. He said he didn't want my eyes to get used the close up lens. He said to use the opti visor with my regular readers.

I really don't see the difference. I'm still looking through a magnified lens. ???

Jan,
Just getting caught up on this build.  Several years ago I built an N scale structure for a friend.  I used cast windows and struggled throughout with how delicate everything is.  I cannot imagine actually assembling windows with separate sashes.
Great color choice, I am impressed by how well everything blends together.  I'm sorry I didn't find time to get on board earlier in the build.

Thank you very much Tom, hoping to use a lot of your tips and tricks on the scene where this structure is going.

Thank you Jerry , Jeff and Karl, and for once I built this for a specific spot on my layout, most of my structures I just build and put them on shelves and then when a scene needs structures I just pick out a few.
