    Well, I had to hold off on putting the crane on the inside, I ran outta time and the contest closed last nite at midnite and I made it in with like 20 mins to spare. I finished weathering at like 11:30 last nite and then snapped some quick pics and then posted the one I wanted for the contest.

    As for the crane, I am still gonna put it in there, I have just been extremely busy with school and its finals week of my senior year lol.

    Anyways, here are the weathered pics of the Kitbashed Rolling Mills

    Looks great!
    but what happened to the sign on the ends?
    it looks like the decals ripped the edges.

    Is that code 55 or 80?

    Thanks :mrgreen:

    Yeah, I had a bit of a problem with the decals hehehehe I am considering leaving the one sign that got ripped a little tho, it gives the building a lil character I think

    Tha one on the other side got ripped off when I masked that area off when I did a touch up with the paint :curse: wall1 sign1 No worries, I have a replacement decal for that spot, just got to get around to slapping er on there :mrgreen:

    As for the code of the "raised rails" inside the mill, im not sure yet what code it is, I have all C55 track tho so I will have to make it work if it is C80, no big deal. Im not sure if walthers made them with C55 track in mind or C80, im assuming it is C55 but not entierly sure.

    Thanks Railspike :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


    This one will be listed on e-bay tho along with my blast furnace. My new plan calls for 3 mills kitbashed together and also 2 blast furnaces kitbashed together. Hopefully the money that I make off the rolling mill and blast furnace right now will be enough to cover most of the cost of buying 2 more blast furnaces and 3 more rolling mills :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Gunna be sad to see them go but boy the next one is going to be even better and more amazing I think :cool:

    ASHLAND BLOWER ENGINE in N scale

    Is there an equivalent to this reference: (ASHLAND BLOWER ENGINE HOUSE HO Scale Structure Kit 933-2957) in N scale?
    In the absence of N-scale model, can anyone give me the dimensions for the model build myself?
    Thanks in advance.
