Dang, what printer is that long?

Mono x 6ks. I also have a mono x 6k that has a slightly larger build plate.

I guess that is only .5" longer than my Sonic Mini 8K, just looks large.

It barely fit with supports  at an angle on the build plate.

I started working on the Redigas propane distributor and the Amtrak station parking lot this past week.  Also finished up 90% of the fascia on the lower level.  It's going to be a while before i can paint it because i have to add the plaster and fill all the gaps between the benchwork and panels.  That's going to take me a while.

I had this week off so I got a lot done, but I start an 8-day rotation on Monday.  Won't be any updates next week for sure... :scared:

Cheers,
Brian

ok, here is a track plan that is meant for actual operation based on a railroad that I have been switching over the last year, and I am thinking that this is going to be the first 9 feet of the 12 foot wall....

You need to paint the fascia to match.   :trollface:

Amazing tidiness BTW!

Thanks, it's "Mr Monk Goes Modeling"  :D

Looking at my online photos with the real thing right in front of me, I'm thinking that my phone camera is just a bit color blind. Aruba blue is definitely a few more ticks towards green than what the camera captured.

Oh, it's just Photoshop trickery!   :trollface:

What gets me is the enormous effort to make the "after" look like the "before", even down to the orientation of the spray paint cans. But subtle differences can be spotted!

Yeah, it reminds me of those "spot the difference" puzzles.  Let's see....the jar of Modge-Podge has been moved from the left to the right of the alcohol and cleaners....there is an additional file hanging over the calendar.......and...oh...the wall is now blue....

I have a mind like a steel trap...a VERY rusty, old steel trap.

What is the other smaller thing (not the loco)? Here's the tender in 1959: https://www.nwhs.org/archivesdb/detail.php?ID=83850

Will be interested to see how you power this thing.  :D

The ashpan perhaps? There's something beneath the frames in the middle, where a diesel would have a fuel tank. I think its an ashpan, but I'm not sure.
