Co-op #2

Just adding a picture of the almost finished Co-op.

I put the coaling tower off to the sidelines for a bit so I can begin work on the Co-op.  Not too much done as of yet, mostly the main structure and the base coat of paint with the initial weathering.

Coaling Tower

Im tired of waiting to start the co-op so I moved on for now and planted the seeds for the coaling tower.  I decided the best way to make it look like concrete is to cast it out of plaster.  This is a first for me but it seems to be moving okay.  I reinforced the plaster in the same way you would concrete.  I used strips of plastic styrene as re-bar and it worked well.  So until I have more done.
