I posted a while back a picture of my n scale mine build (http://cs.trains.com/mrr/m/mrr-layouts/2288348.aspx) with the promise of updated photos as I went along.
This is the main buildings - the tipple and hoist house. The tipple has not got it's roof on just yet. I have some interior details to paint first. I'm going to give it a good cleaning and begin painting it. I will have a small number of other buildings associated to the mine yet to be build, but they are all small, easy structures.
I plan to paint it to look like the buildings are all wood structures.
Any comment and/or pointers welcome.
