Roundhouse bulkhead flats with loads.
Author: csx4793

I decided to start making some loads for these roundhouse bulkhead flats I've had abd figured I'd share.  I started with some styrene I beams cut down to 50 scale feet then I shot them with Vallejo air gray violet followed up with a duct coat of rust. Still have to do the banding yet. Should have them wrapped up this week.

Nice work.
Try Evergreen structural shapes they have a tinner profile.
Keep the pictures coming!

I bought some Evergreen I beams similar to those shown above to eventually do the same thing with.

Looks good to me, I remember those in the two-fer box. That's the kind of load many of us would like to build.

A previous TO post noted that steel beams are heavy and stacking them looks good but may exceed weight limits. Anybody know what a typical load like this would weigh?
