Full Version: Stamp mill in HO

My latest build:
A Stamp mill in HO scale for my HOn3 layout.
I've made it from plans in the "Old wood and stone buildings​" book.
I CAD converted the drawn plans and as I have a 3D printer, I printed the timber frame, windows, doors, smoke stack and loading platform.
I then covered the frame with Northeastern wood and the roof with cardboard covered with surgical tape.
The stays for the smokestack are made of piano wire.
The painting is acrylics on mineral spirits soaked wood...It makes it so nicely weathered.
India​ ink washes to represent rotten wood and shadows etc.

I'm almost finished with the diorama, and will show more pics of the build later.

Nicely done, always admired the members here that can do work like you have done. The planning, construction and weathering, all outstanding. Applause

Beautiful Michael...up to your usual very high standards.
