RS Laser Courter Factory in N-scale
« on: December 08, 2016, 04:45:52 PM »
After some stagnation I decided to pick up a kit and build one in stead of just buying kits  ;)

The box.



The contents, lots and lots of windows.


Lasercut brick walls look really good .


Lots of bracing , wood for this is included in the kit.


I believe there are more then 80 windows in this kit , each window consists of 4 pieces, I'm doing them 8-12 per evening.


Brick wall primed and spray painted brick red. Sprayed a bit from the side and it worked , the gray of the primer shows as mortar.
I love photo's, don't we all.

Great start Jan, I have built a few of Rich's HO scale kits and they were all great.

Jan, that is a great idea. I haven't seen that brick spraying technique with grey primer then red over it. It looks really good.

Looks good Jan. That brick technique is efficient and effective for N scale microscopic grout lines. Nice job on a good looking structure.

Thanks Tom, John , Andy, Rich and Bob appreciate it.

I have to add that I sprayed with enough pressure so that it kind of swept over the wall, a bit like dry-brushing with a spray can ( I hope you understand what I'm saying).

Very nice Jan, great tip about the brickwork! I will have to try that on some HO structures.

Here are the photos I worked from. One from 1898 and the other in the late 30's.
I also have it in HO on special order.

Thanks Mike and yes Jeff does get that way at times. Forgets how to count I think :)
