    Progress on my M.A.T.
    There are three scratchbuilt and one kit shown here in the factory alley.
    There is a kit grain elevator on the left.
    The port of Tayside is becoming a busy area on my M.A.T. layout

    Have to agree. Very nice. That mirror at the end of the track really does seem to expand the layout. Nice job by the photographer of not showing up in the mirror while snapping the shot.

    Those Windows

    Robin,
    I have a question, I've seen many modelers do this also, why do u paint some of the blocks of your industrial windows? Is it to represent dirt and grime?

    The scene looks great by the way, tall, and consuming like a city.

    thanks for your time,

    Ed, many of the old factories paint widow panes for various reasons. Could be privacy or to stop the sun from streaming in.
    As you say, many of the windows don't get cleaned so it could be dirt too. If you see any of these old factories you will notice so we just follow the prototypes on our models.

    Painted Windows

    I asked a buddy of mine who was a maintiance man at a local cotton mill why they painted the window glass white. He told me that it was to let light in and to keep the workers from looking out too. He said that working in the mill...and I quote him..."working in the cotton mill was as close to slave labor as you could get":eek:
