Jasper Masonic Temple

Today is a quick structural update. I've decided to make a little progress on the Jasper Masonic Temple in Rush City. Why would I model a Masonic Temple you ask? Because it is there and it has a little history to it.
Photo from the MNHS Archives circa 1905.
According to the Minnesota Historical Society this was originally the Rush City Flour and Feed Company, which is good as the largest SCXY customer in Rush City is still the Horizon Mill (a large durum flour mill).
A photo I took late last year, you can see the Horizon Mill in the background.
I have gotten the majority of the major work done. The front is a resin kit I chopped up, the rest is scratch built using off the shelf styrene.
 It gets test fit on the layout... most of the windows will be glass block and that will be coming from a supplier in Wisconsin.
That's all for now, thanks for looking!

  1. I had to do a double take - your initial picture looked like it was computer generated! Nicely done, I look forward to seeing the completed project.
