Well, I finished the structure in less than two months.  Pretty good for me.   8)  Final steps were adding the steps/railings and the small roof over the main entrance.  The flash washes out the weathering a bit.

There were some pieces I didn't use.  The detail parts bag has some plaster parts (trash can/barrel/crates/sacks) would look better on a loading dock.  I didn't use the two pallets, either.  There's another piece of ducting like the one on the roof and one of the small curved ducts as well.  I'll save these for another project.  There's also two of these small fire hose hookup pieces.  I thought they needed something on the front to make them three dimensional.  I didn't use the sheet with the meters and electrical boxes.  They're on very thin wood (like the fire hose piece) and would need at least another thickness of wood to raise them enough to make them believable.  There's also some thin wire to attach to the tall stacks to secure them to the roof.  I skipped these as I've been looking at this structure on the bench for long enough.   :)

Trimmed the stack and glued it in place.  Next up were the roof details.  The flash washes out some of the weathering.  The A/C and vent aren't that shiny.  Added a trash barrel, one of the ladders and a pallet up against the roof access.

Thanks, Curt and Tom.  I placed the "tall stack" in place.  glued the top attachment on so I could space the bottom two evenly.  Then needed to figure out how long to make the stack.

Beautiful work, Tom.  You and Groovy Jeff really captured that rural feel on this structure.

The tower looks great.  The interior detail and lighting really put it over the top.

Morning, all.


Off for the next four days.  Hope to finish the challenge build.  Funny, I'd think a business called "Langford Wood" would have a diet Pepsi machine out front.   :)

Morning, all.


Freezing rain here in beautiful Cedar Falls this morning.  It's not keeping the patients away.  It's always interesting that the least sick people come out in the worst weather for me to tell them it's a virus and there's not much to do for it.

That sure turned out nicely, Bob.  I'll use your thread for reference if I ever get around to building my WKLO kit.   :D

Morning, all.


That's some layout, Mike.  We had a surprise blizzard yesterday with about 2 inches of snow falling in an hour or so.  I have a project to help with today, my wife is repainting her quilting room, so I need to move some stuff and spackle some holes and prime the areas she can't reach.   :P  I'd like to see Raymo model the chains on that truck in HO scale.   ;D

Your build is coming along beautifully.  I always thought something was "wrong" with this structure when I saw it on Doug's site.  Your posting the old signs made me think that the hanging Kodak sign is too modern for the rest of the signage on the structure.  Checking the Kodak logo history, that type of sign probably wasn't used until the 1970s.  I would think all the other signage would be updated by that time, but maybe that's just me, and I could be wrong.  My wife says I'm wrong most of the time.   ;D

Morning, all.


My third Saturday off in eight months.  Some 1:1 painting later.   :P I'd like to get the challenge project finished in the next two days, but I doubt it will happen.
