Loading platform

I was contacted a week ago by a fellow N Scaler that was looking for a loading platform. He came across my blog and saw my TOFC loading platform and ask if I would sell him one. I agree and send him one Monday.

He modified it into just a loading platform.

Cool to see your work on others layouts.

New Project - 140' Thru Plate Girder Bridge - Part 7 Abutments

A little work over the holidays, applied first and second coat of texture to bridge abutments. Initially coated abutments with a cheap gray primer rattle can paint from Walmart. Then was a mixture of lite-weight joint compound, water and black/tan paint to a consistency of thick tomato soup.

Second coat applied today

Once dried, I will sand hi-points and if needed a third coat.

Also started a little ground work in area behind bridge

On another note, I created a new blog for my interest in TT Scale modeling (1:120) , so if your interested in TT Scale come follow me there.
