The Porter Enginehouse
The Porter Enginehouse was one of Mike's entries in the recent On30 Modeling Contest.
He used the walls from a Banta On30 engine house kit as the starting point and made everything else different from the kit in some way.
"Seeking to do something different I
eliminated the kits lazer cut windows and doors in order to make
this different from anyone elses build."
"The hydrocal stone was coloured using a specific mixture of alcohol
and higgins india ink. This is different from the other i built
porter eh #1 in which the stone was coloured using a mixture of tea
and coffee. The roofing on this was first etched with an acid and
then bragdon pigments brushed into it for that very rusty look."
"This structure also lifts off its base and can be heavily detailed
with tools and such. There are 3 scratch built work benchs inside
but i ran out of details."
"Zeke dropped by to see his fellow PUGWUMP BROTHERS, busily getting
wood ready for the wood burning porters next outing. He brought his
pet oinker along, ezekial, as they are out looking for the 3 doggies
that have gone missing."
