Boy how time flies when you are having fun. So much time has flown by whilst being self isolating here in Melbourne.
I have not been sitting here idly watching time go by however I have been working on the Campbell Kit of the Silver Spur Mine that I purchased from a fellow HOn3 modeller in the states. This kit was produced around the early 70's and you could smell the air when the box of sticks was opened. This is a cardboard kit with corrugated aluminum siding for the roof and walls that is glued to the cardboard once cut from the sheets.
Having used aluminum like this in the past I am not a big fan as I find it difficult to cut, paint to stick to it and hard to have it sit nicely on the roof of previous buildings where I have used it.
So I have used a paper product from a small shop in S.A. that is really easy to use and paint. And as a bonus it adheres nicely to any surface.
This is a series of in progress shots I took during weeks of build
|All siding attached and painted to walls and roof.|
There are several more buildings that have been completed and not shown.
Now I need to get to and work the foam for scenery so this mine will fit the space I am planning for it.
So until the next post, thanks for stopping by.
