    Been quiet out here. So here's what I've been working on...

    Fallberg Depot was a design of John Olsen. I've got a link off the kit info and whatnot on my blog.

    Hydrocal castings, some plastic pieces and printed roofing. The crane is included with the kit.

    A fun project with lots of weathering to come!

    Those are some nice looking castings. Be sure to keep us updated.

    That crane would be a good muscle builder!

    Nothing really big will get unloaded here. I'm thinking the ramp will work for unloading flats and whatnot of bulky items.

    We use something like this but smaller at where I work to lift machines on a bench. One guy can lift up a 300lbs+ machine pretty easy.

    I got paint on the crane (rust base, a chipping overcoat then a yellow color) and start weathering it shortly.

    Base color is Mineral Red, then a spray of Ammo Chipping effects and then yellow. No pics of the weathering, I've just started. Chipping effect makes it easy to get the patchy, peeling paint effect.

    I can see the name Paasche. Looks like a nice new toy. What model is it?

    Talon TG, Found it with 3 different needle/tips for $100. A really nice detail brush.

    One night on the crane, one on the dock. Weathering has changed!

    Wow. It certainly has changed. From brand new to well used!

    Art - This is looking really good. I have the version that was put out by Downtown Deco and it looks just like yours. The DD kit did not come with the crane, but I do have one that is mostly built. I may need to add that. I just put the roof on mine last night...maybe add a few shingles tonight using the Bar Mills shingles. I also did not use the front of the building, I used wood and placed the door off to the side. I still have a lot left to do, such as wood trim pieces. It's getting there!

    Thanks Chuck! Mine has a sheet metal roof on it and is waiting for my lazy arse to paint it sometime. Maybe tomorrow. The crane is a Tichy part. I'm thinking about a shed as well for unloading boxcars/reefers as well. Or a small baggage shed. Not sure yet.
