All I can say it was a joy for me to make this structure and to be able to share it with you.
I tried to photograph it as if it was a real building by keeping the camera low.
Robin,

'tis you that have been generous to share this with us. I don't know what kind of cold cereal you eat, but the results are phenomenal.:)

I eat corn flakes and my wife eats shreddies most mornings for breakfast. The Coal Tower used one corn flake box. Overall cost for the whole thing was under $1.00 Canadian.
Tyson, I don't buy kits anymore.

Robin,

I hope I can say that someday. NO, not the thing about eating corn flakes, the thing about not buying kits anymore. :rolleyes: :D

Since I'm still on my first layout, I'm still at the kit stage, but that's like crawling before you learn to walk, a necessary step in the process. To continue the analogy, you're not just walking, you're running, and doing an excellent job of it I might add.:)

Um...I'm Speechless.

I used to work in card stock and so forth, but my hands were never good with it. I have gone to other building materials...but this project is quite simply over the top!

You might try finding a finer thread yet, though that may be hard in N scale....I have found that chain really doesn't scale well unless you are working with boats. Cable is even smaller.

WOW, I'm just going through every project you have done, and I still can't believe the detail! It's simply amazing! You should have your own magazine Robin! The walkway is great!

Mike.

I was just browsing the Scratchin' 'n' Bashin' Forum and ran across this thread. This is simply the most amazing tutorial I've ever seen! But ... why compare to a Walthers kit when it ought to be compared to a Fine Scale Miniature kit at least! WOW!!!
