    Default Complete Sugar Beet Refinery Now Available

    I have been posting about this kit for how many months now? And I am sure there are those of you who want to scream if you see the phrase "sugar beet" one more time, so I promise this is the last thread about the project!


    I have finally finished Building #3 of the set and can now offer the entire industry, along with smoke stack! You've seen pics of the original from my layout, but here are some versions of Building #3...











    ...and the whole complex:








    I'll have all these at Amherst in 3 weeks. In the meantime, please order lots and lots!

    You need to contact IMRRO on YouTube he just had a sugar beet special not too long ago, wonder if he'd use that.
    http://m.youtube.com/user/IMRROcom not to mention he has some good videos!

    Now THAT is a beautiful kit. You should be proud.

    Mildly concerned about how much I'd get stung by UK customs for this beastie though.

    Still, I can dream...

    I can absolutely use this....without the beets. It'll serve any number of possibilities. Very nicely done

    Someone else brought this up to me from across the pond. Are there distributors for products like mine in the UK?

    I picked up the brick version of this kit perhaps 8 years ago. Finally decided it was time to give it a go.

    1. The kit is nicely packaged in that all the parts for each wall section are bagged together. No need to search for parts.


    2. Below is my method for getting a brick color. After this I did use the famous brick mortar product.



    3. I wanted a slightly worn down factory so went with these green trim pieces and windows


    4. The walls have slots and a base for easy lining up. The double windows are fancy!



    5. City Classics sells some factory window treatments in HO scale that I used here.



    6. There is a dormer for this roof, but I think I lost it. Lead pencil is how I got these lines on the roof after a treatment with oils. A few more details to work on here for this building and then onto building #2.

    Just another n-scaler.

    Sugar beets were a big in Southern Colorado and in Germany. So far as European rail, there is a lot of rolling stock available for this industry.

    Looking forward to seeing progress on this build!

    7. Starting the 2nd building


    8. Adding windows


    9. Finally found the dormer for the main building. Will fit it properly later.



    10. Starting on the 3rd building in the series, a warehouse.


    Lots more to do but mainly windows and then roofs. I had to order more "factory glass" but it is in the mail so the last part of the windows will be all ready to go. Not sure if I will keep the roof style or go with more tiles or asphalt. It has been hard to find roof photos.
    Just another n-scaler.
