    Here are some photos of my recently compeleted Plank and Tie Mill Kit.

    This is an old Woodland Scenics Kit , introduced maybe over 20 years ago( I think).

    It is white metal kit and very detailed , the only downside being a lot of flash and some distortions with the castings... eg sides not lining up.Not too much to complain about

    Well worth the time and effort if your after similar scenary on your layout.

    enjoy....

    Ian

    Hi Ian,
    Thats a beautiful looking structure, I remember that woodlands scenics rural sawmill as I made it up to display it once. Yours looks excellent with the roof you made for it,plus the extensions I like that a lot.

    Very nicely done! I was wondering if that was the same kit. I have one tucked away somewhere with about 5 other WS kits waiting to be built.

    Hi camelot


    excellent modelling. I saw your pictures already on the WEB and really enjoyed the details and have got lot of inspiration.

    I also have almost all components from Woodland scenic, however I have got the impression that those models are to small for H0. (I use them as carload, background detail etc.) I am now befor the decision what to build for the last empty space of my Ferkel Lines RR, and this model was one of the possibilities (of course in "ordinary size" to fit my real logs).

    What is your opinion?
    :confused:

    Camelot,

    Excellent modeling of the Plank & Tie Mill. And great closeup photo's.

    I can commensurate with you about the amount of flash and the sides not lining up. I gave up on the one I put together and went with scale lumber. I also have the other kit, the Rural Sawmill waiting to be assembled.

    John,

    There are two separate kits. The one that Camelot modeled is WS Plank and Tie Mill, the one that Shamus modeled is WS Rural Sawmill. And yes they are still available.

    Shamus,

    Thanks for the welcome. I've had some down time so I'm able to come and visit. Hope to be able to return an post more in the future.

    Jon, Apologize for misspelling your name in the above post.

    All have a good day,

    Jim

    Great looking kit, Jim, and no prob. on name. I see my first or last misspelled more often than not. When I order pizza, I tell them "Smith" weather they want first or last name. You can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay, but you doesn't have to call me Johnson...

    Thanks for the info. on the kits!
