I'll jump into the challenge with the stone and lime loadout buildings and various conveyors located at the Vulcan Quarry outside of Hanover, PA.

Not certain what all will get done.  I'm basically shooting for one or the other.  I currently have Glacier Gravel in place for the stone loadout and have the silos next to the lime loadout built.  So I might lean towards the lime loadout

Oye, do scratchbuilds eat up styrene.  Going to have to get more at some point this week.  This evening, I got started on the lime loadout building.  That's the one in the second photo above.  I got one side cut and mocked together.

Someone at Evergreen must be wondering what is going on.

I said it before but damn does scratch building something eat styrene.  I need one more pack of siding, so I'm on hold until I can get that.  Also need more glue, thought I had another pack but none to be found.  I'm wondering now though if I over estimated and built it too tall.

Scratching does indeed eat styrene, but nothing eats money faster than a Walther's kit.  Always remember that.

You also always have the option of making those sides that don't face the aisle a little less detailed.  Plain sheet styrene is really cheap, but you can still add some bits to it and paint it so when the camera angle demands, it looks adequately like something.

Got my picture today for the other side.  I'm not sure I have room for this where the building will currently sit, but maybe on version 2.0 if that layout ever gets built.



Also got a couple more shots for the stone loadout, which may or may not get started during the contest period.
