Scratchbuilt by my mate Robbo using balsa & card  for my layout.  He uses photos from magazines as a guide.

First photo shows it against a ruler - main building 12" long, it is 5.5" deep & 7.5". Card tube from paper towel for silo, plastic tubes I think ex drinking straws for pipework.

Thanks Sol. I can use the photos and information to draw up a scale plan. I've 12.5" to fill (including a road or loading dock at the side), so I can make it almost the same size. :thumbs:thumbs

That's a pretty neat looking model Sol :thumbs:thumbs


It just needs a cyclone off the main building to catch all the dust created by the milling - otherwise, you'd probably have a dust explosion within the first 10 minutes of operations and it would be pity to ruin such a fine building !! :roll::roll::roll:

Maybe the cyclone is already there at the back. :hmm  It will be interesting to see how you weather it.

That is one hell of a site Doug. When you go back to the Index it covers a heck of a lot of ground. Definitely one for our Index.

I've always thought of it as 'If it ain't there, you don't want it!' What a labour of love, eh?  Pity he's a watch maker [N gauge enfoosiast.......]

Doug that site gets better the more I look at it. Here's another link that is invaluable to modellers. In fact I would go so far to say that it's probably one of the best I have ever seen for Industrial buildings all in the one place.

Yes Bob - I'd given it a cursory glance earlier - now I've delved a little more deeply (still only scratching the surface), it really is an absolute cracker.  Everything is there. 

On occasions, there is a real gem that comes to the surface - this is one of them.  Thanks Doug. :cheers:cheers

I rather like the idea of a "Condensed Milk Factory" :hmm:hmm

Sol - that's a great way to send dimensions to Jeff. :thumbs:thumbs  None of this 4" high by 3" deep with a sloping roof. :roll::roll::roll:  It's like being there doing your own measurements.  Wonderful things these digital photographs.

p.s.  Don't they make rulers in Australia ? :lol::lol:

Yes in metric - this one came from the States in an order from Micro-Mark as a Freebie ( as if there is such a thing as a freebie!)

As soon as I'd posted Sol, I realised it was a "Micro-Mark" product.  They make some good stuff - but it's usually expensive.  Certainly they market in UK - not sure about France.

Good set of photos, Sol, I'm sure it will be easy to work out the main dimensions now. If there's any small details needed, I'll be back :exclam:exclam :roll::roll:
