The subject matter of this blog is the Steel Industry and Railroading. Most of the posts deal with my attempt to model an integrated steel mill in HO scale, however, there will also be posts on real railroading and the real steel industry as well as other industries, and for that matter, general topics, that interest me.

FUN WITH PAPER - Part #4
All paper and cardboard - not finished yet
This paper stuff is becoming addicting. Nice way to chill out at the end of the day, although in many respects much more difficult then plastic models. It is more akin to scratchbuilding. My latest project is the newest Scale Scenes "kit" - a container crane. There were 15 pages pieces and the instructions have at least 100 steps. The engineering of this paper model is incredible and a lot of work went into designing it. I think the download was 6 pounds, so whatever that works out to in dollars. But for that I can print out as many as I want. Model is about 90% complete. I think I started this sunday night and have spent a few hours each night this week working on it.
