Maker's Mark Distillery

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

The layout is looking great Brian 8) The building's proportions work very well. The way the track weaves in and around them is effective too.
Little old lines to somewhere.

Brian,
Your work is wonderful! I saw it over on the 7/8 site and came back home here for a better look. As we are in the same state, with a lot of luck I might get to see the little railway in person some day.
Superb!

Chugging along with my little layout and making major progress -
built the shutters and got them mounted,
mounted all the buildings together,
scratched a little open passenger car for VIP tours,
scratched a little flat that will be used for hauling whisky (that's how it's spelled on the MM bottles) barrels,
painted up the 2 little kit cars,
installed the gravel road and grade crossing.

Now some pics -

Looking good Brian.
The black and red of the buildings and the brown and grey of the groung go well together 8)

Coming on nicely Brian. The red shutters make a huge difference to the appearance.

Really looking good, Brian. The red shutters work very well to unify the buildings - which is probably why it was done on the prototype! I'm looking forward to further developments.

Thanks guys! :D

I started mods to the critter by beefing out the radiator, new engine compartment doors, muffler, etc. I started modifying a figure to fit.

By the way - I'll be bringing up the mini layout (in progress) to ECLSTS this Saturday. It will be on display in the alcove with Ric Golding's TimeSaver layout.

Hi guys, making more progress on the mini layout -
the loco got a coat of paint
the flat got a few barrels to haul around
used real stone for the stone walls of the creek
and laid down some turf grass. :wink:
I had it outside for traveling up to the ECLSTS and took a few pics -
