Ed, that is super detailed ! I like that tall stuff, really creates some dynamics.
That you will. Just make sure the wife is driving.:startled:
Jeff -- I take no credit on the details of the structure. That all goes to Steve. He did a great job. I can only take credit for the painting of it. Some portions are better than others, but its a work in progress.
Here are a few more pictures. These are of the grain bin that sits just south of the silos. Still needs a bit of rust added to the northern side. This is an intersting piece to paint. Each side of is has a different effect on weathering. The northern side has the most rust. The southern side is the cleanest. On the top, the paint is the best. Best I can figure, somewhere in its life, it was powerwashed. The only portion that got repainted was the roof. This stucture has had so many owners its hard to say.
Ed, no such luck. I wouldnt trust her driving in the highway anyway. Maybe the number one son will drive.
Nice job on the weathering. Nice contrast of colors.
Update on the silo itself. Applied the signage and weathered some. A big thanks to John Kellett for doing the decals.
looking good. I can't wait to see it placed in the layout.
Here are a few updates as the module is taking shape.
Wow! the module looks great. Now all you have to do is send it down to me so I can play with it.
Does look good for sure. I really enjoy the elevator, can't wait to see the full scenery.
Great looking facilities
Next step is to put the parking lot portion in. The portion on either side of the canal will be covered in trees. I'm leaning towards fall colors for the foliage.
