Lynn Valley water tank :: finished

The finished Lynn Valley water tank.

I’m sure there are more but little things to be done, but essentially, my model of the Lynn Valley water tank is complete. I may add a lightning rod, or not: I don’t see on in the prototype photos I have so I’ll leave it off for now.

In the end, I made many modifications to the kit I purchased from Altoona Model Works*. That said, knowing what I know now, I would definitely purchase the kit if I were building this model again. It provided the raw material, the detail parts, and a good set of instructions to get me started.

    • Hi Bo:
      I think you’ve mis-interpreted my posting. You’re right – the kit is very complete and really nice. The changes I made were not because of any shortcoming of the kit – but to make my model look more like my prototype. So, I did not add the lightning rod because my prototype doesn’t appear to have one. I also built a new, six-panel roof instead of the eight-panel roof supplied with the kit. I reduced the height of the base and modified the bracing – again to make my model more closely reflect the tank that stood in the Lynn Valley. And I did a few other things.
      I hope that clears up the confusion.
