Plattsburgh paper Mill

More kit bashing

Over this weekend I managed to spend some more time kit bashing the main paper mill building and build some of the tanks for the mill also.

As per the power station, this building was made from 2 Walters Superior Paper kits.

The building on the left is for large rolls of paper that is shipped directly into 50 ft box cars. The doors on the building are spaced for 50 ft cars but 40 ft can be spotted there is uncoupled. The building on the right is part of the main mill building and has a loading dock for cardboard products into 40 ft and 50 ft box cars.

There is a lot more to do on these buildings in terms of pipes to cover the joins, adding windows and doors to it.. But these are the basic structures.

Here is the end product.





The large white roller doors are a new addition to the building and the surrounds will be painted concrete white the long white strip will be painted a timber colour to protect the building from the box cars.

I will make a low relief boiler recovery house on the right of the mill next to the tanks. As I have used the Superior Paper boiler house for my power station I will look to make a modern (well at least for Mid 1970) looking boiler house.

Stay tuned for the next update.
