Ditto what Jan said. Your pre-construction advance work evokes that done by museum curators. Eagerly following...👍🏻

Thanks to all for following along.

While we wait for more foam core, let's finish our tour.

The next building in the rear is the Blacksmith Shop.


This building will likely be built using parts from Railroad Kit's E.F.Smith and Co. as well as some scratchbuilding. This will actually reverse the materials, as the original blacksmith shop was stone with brick additions and the kit is brick, but I doubt many will notice. Here are some shots of the complex as it stands today:

The next and last building along the backdrop will be the company's office building.









This building is going to be kitbashed from two DPM Laube Linen Mill kits.

The last of the foreground structures will be the Machine Shop.



This structure is the one that burned in 1995 and so there is very little of the original left.





This building will be scratchbuilt and (hopefully) have a detailed interior. This will be tricky with a traveling module, so I reserve the right to change my mind on that. Also, in the Sketchup drawing, addition runs past the main building and also shows an open interior. This will actually be a shorter addition with no detailed interior. Only the main machine shop will be open.

On the end of this building I will model the small millrace that runs along the edge of the complex. It will serve to add some dimensional depth to this end of the module.





So that is a very quick rundown of the plans for this 2' x 8' space. It is, admittedly, very ambitious, but it has waited this long, why not go big? Right?

Up next, making stuff.

Matt
