QuoteI will definitely be following along again.
QuoteThat looks great Mark. I love the detailing along with the wall covering and coloring.
QuoteGreat start Mark.....this will be a great addition to your layout.
QuoteI am impressed with how you once again managed to design and construct a complex structure; one that looks eminently like a building that would exist in the real world. Kudos for not only the design, but also the execution. The fit and finish is exceptional, too. I'm definitely following along and looking forward to your continued progress.Thanks for taking the time to share your modeling.
QuoteGreat progress Mark.....
QuoteI was reading about Wilson Portland Cement, and then looked at North Island geology. I wondered where they got the limestone. There seems to be a patch of limestone near Warkworth, which I guess makes sense. Some of the other deposits in the area are ash-rich, the same as the famous Pozzuoli stuff that makes Roman Concrete, which can cure under water and is much stronger than "regular" concrete. It's fun to put to use what I learned from the geology courses I've taken the last couple of years.The start of the canal, including the sluice gate, looks great! I had some custom NE Brownstone castings for a curved canal wall on my previous layout. (I still have that section of layout, but I couldn't find a way to use it in the current layout.)
