Wow, too many to reply to each. I don't mind lurkers, just make a comment once in a while, or better yet, a question. Thank you all.

Here are the side windows I did on the 'car' side of the building. They are a little larger, and easier to see, but the technique is about the same for all. I have most of the steps printed on the picture, so it should be self-explanatory, however, if not, that's where the questions come in  ;D

These windows are really meant for a brick or stone wall, but I liked them. But, that being said, the frame of the window is thinner, so on the other windows, I used some 2 x 2 stripwood for the backing and outer part of the framework. On these, I used 1 x 2 stripwood.

The inspection pit! I wanted to do this. Ken Karns from a model he built of the Sierra West Scale Models engine shed (I also built one) gave me the idea for this. It went together quite well, actually. I am building the shed on some pink insulation, 1/2", so cutting out the area for the pit was very easy to do. Once I sized the area, I pretty much built it outside the box, so to speak, and fitted it in when finished. I added a few details after, along with some LED lights. And I have to admit, that looks pretty cool.

And the last for today.

I also put in some hinges from Vector Cut for the side door. The door was scratchbuilt.

WoW Tony....I'm speechless. I've seen a few modeled inspection pits, but never seen one with a floor drain...it is often missed....nice touch.
Thanks,
Donato

Biding my time till I can start my layout and build nice stuff like all you folks .... (said with envy). :-)

Janbouli, Curt and John, thank you.

Donato, yep, I figure there was a water hose, and it needed to drain out. Got the idea from another friend.

Thanks Tommy, I've been a member for a little while, but mostly I was a lurker. I posted a few pictures of my version of Sokol's, a mostly scratchbuilt model from a Bar Mills kit. Another had done a great job here, and I posted a few of my own pictures on his post. I don't like doing that too much, I feel I'm imposing on another's thread.

Haven't been doing too much to the shed lately, been doing a little scenery work. But I have been building some operating hinges for the car shed side, will be using regular static kind for the other doors, just wanted to try this out. I cut some .005" brass sheet into 1/16" wide strips and soldered a 1/16" long brass rod I cut from a brass tubing, about 1-32" by a .014" I/d. I drilled holes through the hinge into the door for some NBW's. I have one set of doors done, and another to be finished. Then onto the door construction for the other 3 engine doors.

Also made some operating door latches for when the doors are open.

Tony

Did you include a drain for the water to escape in your inspection pit? 


(With work this good, you have to really dig to find something to ask! :-) )
