I've been nibbling away at this kit diorama when I can, plus working on the site that the diorama will sit on.....
here is a photo looking across at the different roofs ... this is how the structures will be arranged....

Hey Bob.  This will look great looking across the isle to the scenery in the background.

Cheers, Mark.

thanks Mark,,,,, however, the diorama is actually going across to the other side,,,, I am making the river with the outlet pipes that goes in front of the Spencer Building and then this will go in front of that feature.  the plan is that the view will be past my Hunterline bridge over the river to Spencers,,,,
     
I gotta post some photos of this area,,,,,

the diorama is being built on the foam base, and sits in a cut out on the layout. This way I can work on this monster at the bench.  The bridge will drop in when I am ready with the track.... the river has about 10 coats of gloss Modge Podge so far.... lots more detail at the river is needed plus I gotta make the waterfalls.... the road that goes in front of the market will curve at an angle to the side of the layout,,, the backdrop here will be some tall structures, with the track going under one of the buildings.....

Bob,

Nicely done on all of it. Love the weathering on the brick walls.

week and a half away on vacation to Arizona..... looked at areas for future retirement!
    now its back to the work bench, but its summer again here in the North East!

the machinery that controls the water outflow to the river consists of several castings, but goes together easily with some CA glue.  The shed over it took a bit of time because of the fragility of the structure.

Bob,

Really excellent build. Love the SRMW kits, and how they always were presented.

Question. for your or anyone else who might know. Any idea why the paper mill would be connected to the market? I could see if it were a outlet store of some time, for the paper company.

Does the walkway have to be installed (For future reference)?

Thanks.

Jim

good question, and I have no idea! I thought of that myself during the build but I liked the elevated walkway so much I kept it as is.  I did move the restaurant and changed it to a bar room.  You don't have to connect the structures with the walkway, they have complete walls and can be separated... I actually covered up windows with the elevated walkway. 
there were things that came up during the build of this kit that were a bit challenging, but any experienced modeler can build this thing.... just requires some accuracy with the trim and the resin pieces....
    The instructions do not guide you step by step,  in ultra detail,  with regards to the diorama base as the FSM instructions do....  but one doesn't have to do the elevations like the prototype..... I did do some elevation changes as I love them for my dioramas.
   the double telephone pole assembly took some time to complete... will post photos when I get a chance.....
