"Scratchbuilding the Farmer's Gilt Edge Creamery"
was published in the May, 2003 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman magazine.
Me, with the model, in front of the real thing.
Besides this being my longest published article to-date (7 pages), I'm also pretty tickled that my good friend from New Jersey, Chuck Diljak, had an article in this same issue of RMC. Pretty cool coincidence!
|This shot shows the second floor window headers, made out of scale 1"x3" strip styrene. Edited out of the article was the part about how I accidentally put a drill bit through the fascia of the building -- you can see the scar to the right of the window.|
The loading dock isn't all that clear in the lead photo of the article. The rolling door is only partially raised, revealing a guy hauling milk cans, plus a wall of cans behind him.
|This is a behind-the-scenes shot of taking the lead photo for the article. The creamery is sitting on my layout in the town of Froton, at the place where it will be residing.|
|Here's a view from the other side of the same setup.|
|What's not very evident in the article is the fact that the front side of the creamery was shot on a small diorama I'd created for the building.|
