Over on the Railroad Line Forum Karl O brought back to life Tenement Row by Smallshaw (Mike Chambers page 2).  He showed how he painted & weathered the Monster Brick Sheets he used.  His work on Laser cut brick sheets from Monster has to be some of the best I have ever looked at. None of this can be done without the expert work of Jimmy over @ Monster.

Thanks for the lead.  I remember seeing Carl's original posts on this build. He sure did a great job with the brick. Thanks for letting us know where to find it.

John,
As the rawest of rookies here, I've been stewing about this comment for several days, BUT....
Back on page 1, look at the photo that shows the chimney head on. What is holding the chimney up? It is sitting on the roof, but it would need something inside to hold it up structurally.
I haven't built the kit, but I do think that any chimney is a column of bricks/blocks from the foundation all the way to the cap. I'd hate to see you detail the interior (which I'm looking forward to) and have the chimney crash through the roof into the detailing.
Just sayin'. I'll crawl back under my rock now.


Thanks for sharing your comments - you are absolutely correct. I have some extra brick columns in my stash that will work to show the chimney extending down through the building for my interior detail. I hadn't got that far but sure would not have wanted to miss it. I hope we continue to hear from you. ;)

Mike,

Will you post the link to K.O's thread here?

Tom ;D

I will update as soon as I can find the thread and reread it.  I don't remember how to instructions - only pictures. It has been a few years since Karl O's original article and I do have trouble remembering where I put my glasses.

Here's photos of the East Deerfield, Waltham, and what's left of the Johnsonville towers. You can see how the chimney's fit the buildings.

Great prototype photographs - thanks for sharing them.
