Title: Tylick Tool Bar Mills My build Challenge 2018
Post by: postalkarl on January 07, 2018, 03:48:04 PM
Hi Alll:

I will be building Bar Mills Tylcik Tool Co. The top photo is of Jim Mooney Diorama. The 2nd photo is the one I built when the kit came out.

Nice choice, Karl - I'll be watching.

I might be wrong here - but I think I remember reading that a box car will not fit under the second story floor, and some foundation modification is called for if you decide to add a track and want to spot box cars here.  Again - just something I think I remember but could be completely wrong!

Cheers, Mark.

Karl,

Looking forward to your build.  Glad you are using the color combination that I originally did.

Post by: JimMooney on January 07, 2018, 06:07:58 PM
no plastic windows...
was looking at my original drawing and I measured a 40' box car I had and it shows 2" from top of rails to bottom of second floor and 1-1/2" wide

Hi All:

Painted the walls red. Used thinner and paint to cause some of the gray underneath to show through. Was wondering if they look ok. Maybe I will finish a wall and see how it looks. However, am looking for opinions on how they look at this stage.

Thanks:

Karl

I like the color but maybe a little bright? Some India ink wash would help, I think. But then, I'm a faded paint junkie.....

Wow , Karl bright red , now that's something we don't see from you every day. I'm quite confident you will get a bright red building to look great just like your normal green ones.  ;)

Karl,

Off to a great start and I also agree the red TO red. Maybe more of the Floquil Driftwood will help tone it down a bit.

I only have three bottles of Driftwood left. And, I'm working on the CD for you.

Tom ;D

Hi Karl


I just found your thread and you already have the walls painted. I agree with the comments so far. A little tone down may be in order.  I have the same problem with yellow - it usually turns out to bright until I wash it with a tone down color. I will be following along.

Hey BTW
was looking at my files and finally found the plastic that almost fits in those holes...It's the ones from Graves Elevator...they're a little smaller though.
 If you would be willing to burn those red walls (!)  I'll cut you new batch with smaller holes and send you the plastic windows...(and acetate cut for them!)
this is a pic with new windows...

Hi: Vince, Janbouli, Tom, John S, Jim Mooney, Ed & BobC:

Thank for the compliments and joining in on my build. It will be delayed for a few days as Jim is recutting the walls for me so I can use the plastic windows.

Hi Tom:

Yeah they are on the way. I figure I should have them in a couple of more days. I will be changing the color of the walls from red to CN Gray as per Jim's suggestion.

Karl

Hi Guys:

Received new walls from Jim. Windows resized for the plastic windows. Color has been changed to CN gray per Jim's request. Corner trim is added. Walls are braced. Big sign is added, nail holes are done and A&I wash has been applied. On to the next step.

Karl,
Jim might be right with the suggestion of CN Gray.  CN Gray looks good with the sign.  I do not know about you but I would rather use plastic windows in HO Scale

Can not wait for your next step

yeah I gave it a quick glance and didn't think about it too much, then remembered it was the plastic windows. They look good, nearly identical..cool...
