I opened the box to look over the kit’s part. My first reaction is I have quite a few things to paint. The ash pit, concrete foundation, the building, and probably the steel supports. Given the number of colors and the size of the parts I don’t feel firing up the airbrush is warranted. It will be either rattle can or brush.

I will clean off the parts and most likely give them a quick shot of flat sealer before I start painting.

Will be a nice detail for your locomotive servicing area.

Somewhat related, but my failure to complete an ash pit and coaling tower kit 25 years ago is the reason my railroad burns oil. Smile Smile

Good luck to you!

After painting the parts for the cinder conveyor, I began the assembly. Instructions say to build the support column. I thought the coaling tower was annoying at times. This thing took frustration to a level I never knew existed.

Trying to line up the lattice work between the sides was a hair pulling experience. I managed to break three pieces off just trying to get one piece aligned to the other. After about an hour and a half to two hours, after various thoughts of destroying the model in numerous ways involving throwing, crushing, or stomping I finally got it together.

Next step is to assemble the shed that goes on top.

Well I am going to do something to the layout between now and when the challenge ends. I might as well call it a challenge and therefore it sounds more momentous than it may actually be.
