Can't believe it turned out see thru like that  :o

The source file had two layers -- a solid base with the grid superimposed over the top .. I just removed the base .. I'm impressed that it worked ..

Yep, see-through gratings are no problem for the Mono with the Basic resin:

John, this is incredible all around.

I did my tiny part and printed out a placeholder to make sure it'll fit.

It'll fit, no problem.

I'll be mocking up a track behind it for the old dump track.

In about 8 hours, I should have the V1.0 print for your model out of the printer .. we shall see ..  don't forget on your tracks, you need to have extra space for the coal chutes .. and the hoist house / hoist ..

Hot!!!

This is the main reason all of that track in that area is just sitting on the foam. It's all adjustable.

I think this is really going to make this scene.

I cannot thank you enough.

Ready for the paint shop - this is my engineering model that I used to test fit parts .. the hoist tower is a bit too tall - and I've corrected that on the model that Ed will get for the layout .. but overall, I think it captures it pretty well .. this tower underwent a lot of changes once it was retired from service, including removal of the coal chutes and some of the pulleys and such ..

It's been a fun project - but also time to move on to something else ..

@John,

Good god, man!  The detail on your coaling tower is sick.  I'm curious about the amount of hours and the cost of resin that you invested into this.  Wow!

Kudos!

I have at least 1000ml of resin invested so far for the two models that are getting finished and some "test shots that failed" .. maybe a little more - but my first test models I used resin that was close to expiring, and needed to be used up ..

As far as time spent on design -- hard to say .. I didn't start working on this until Ed posted the thread .. I'd say at least 80 hours .. not counting the time to print .. thats one reason I won't offer this as a product

@John is the man.

Not only has he given me an amazing structure, he also gave me the means to reproduce it with his old Photon.

I cannot express my gratitude enough.

Here's the coaling tower in its new home.



It's a work of art.

For the Conrail era you may want to wack it with a hammer a few times  :P

Neat video, but keep in mind that's farther from my era than my era was from the steam era. Ain't THAT nuts?

Maybe Ken is on to something with a portion of my old layout becoming York  :? :D

On a much much more serious note, that's a landmark piece if I've ever seen one.  Certainly something that people will see and say " Hey, I know exactly where that's from "
