Thanks Dick, and for the very helpful images you provided me.DBrion wrote: This is more than a model - it is a working museum diorama. This should be published in RMC or Scale Rails (not necessarily MR) where real hobbyists will appreciate the attention to detail and the skills to replicate reality.
KUDOS to you Ed.
What an amazing job modeling this iconic area! Your attention to detail is absolutely breathtaking! Well done sir!nhhe52 wrote:Perhaps those that spent time at the Cos Cob Power Plant, Load Dispatch Tower or nearby can provide some direction:
I'm working with CMR to build the Cos Cob power plant back drop model for me and I'm looking for the following information:
From the available literature, the Cos Cob Power Plant exterior was constructed of concrete blocks cast on site, tile roofing as manufactured by Ludowici and steel framed windows:
Was the color of the concrete blocks the typical yellow-sand color of New Haven poured concrete of the period, similar to the remaining Load Dispatch Tower?
Although a different shape roof tile, was the color of the tile reddish-brown also similar to the roofing of the remaining Load Dispatch Tower?
Were the steel window frames painted dark brown?
For those that asked for the progress on the Cos Cob bridge and related details, I've uploading new images below. Building the timber pilings and painting of the track will be next up:
