Colorado narrow gauge turntable and roundhouse in HOn3

February 23, 2016 12:26PM avatar
Hi all!
I have been building an engine terminal for my freelanced Colorado railroad in HOn3.
The roundhouse is based on the Como roundhouse model from Model masterpieces.
I have departed from the original as I skipped the boiler house and built full height doors as the roundhouse had as built (but was altered to lower doors later on).
I model the late 30's, so it is a bit modelers license involved....
:-)
The cast plaster walls were painted stone by stone (almost...):


The turntable is also a Model masterpieces kit with the pit and drive home made.




The 3D printed gearbox:


The base with turntable and rails to the roundhouse:


Getting it all assembled was a real chore.




Pre assembled the rafters which later will be glued to the removable roof:


Most of the ground cover in place.




Interior view with wooden floor on the left three stalls:


Stacks and roof beams in place:




Door construction:






Black and white "mood picture":


Sure, a lot of it might be wrong, but I like it.
:-)
