Over at the The Crafstman's Workshop Tom (ACL1504) has a build thread
about Model Tech Studios' Old Mill. That thread got me all fired up about the time I visited MTS' booth at the 2006 National Train Show following the NMRA convention in Philadelphia.
So, I thought I'd share some photos of the MTS stuff I found interesting.
Without a doubt the fellow does good work. Here is a wharf diorama that was impressive. Please forgive the reflections off the diorama's cover.
Here is an overview of many of MTS' kits:
An O scale boat and bait shack:
Smith Bros. Fish and Roscos Engine Repair:
Close-up (out of focus) of roof detail. The roof is one casting:
The siding on the structure in the background looks good!
Close-up of Smith Bros. Fish:
I cannot recall if these were HO or O scale. But they look good. The doors seem a bit thick to me.
Close-up of Roscos Engine Repair:
HO scale Roscos Engine Repair and Herminson Mill in the background:
The mill in the background is the one the Tom is building.
The display above was on a separate table so that means the first pictures of Roscos are O scale.
HO scale Crows Nest Cafe (not totally in focus):
Smith Bros. Fish in HO scale:
Notice the 3D flats in the background.
Close-up of the boat in front of Smith Bros. Fish:
A closer look of the Smith Bros. Fish roof. I believe it was also a single casting:
I tried to get a decent photo of some of the castings that were for sale at MTS' booth. I don't know if this was HO or O scale. One this is certain, it is out of focus:
Anyway, that is what I found thus far. I'll dig around some more. Meanwhile, go read Tom's build thread
