    Hi guys, this thread will be just like my last thread, "Building the Walthers N Scale Blast Furnace" exept it will be the Walthers N Scale Coke Oven & Quencher.

    I should start posting pics in about a week because I don't have the building yet, I ordered it from Mike Fifer Hobby a few days ago and sent out the payment on Monday so it should be here sometime next week.

    You can view the thread "Building the Walthers N Scale Blast Furnace" by clicking HERE. You have to click the links to the pics through most of the thread because we moved servers and the pics got messed up but the weathered pics of the furnace at the end are still there.

    Hope you guys enjoy this thread as much as you guys did the last :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Here is a pic of the Walthers Coke Oven from Walthers web site

    This build will be entered in the "Spring 07' Kitbuild Challange" here on the Gauge.
