Structure Model 2 - ATSF Sanding Tower in San Bernardino, California

Almost the same time as the Protection depot I started another structure, which I could not take with my on my carry on baggage to the US, so I presented it also at the British Region convention in Kegworth.

The Santa Fe Sandhouse that ones stood in San Bernardino is a very impressive structure with a large sandbin and sanding tracks along both sides of it.

To build it I used the plans from Peter Youngbloods book "Modeling Cajon Pass"

Like on most of my structures I used Evergreen Sheet Styrene.

The Sandhouse received 96 points in the AP judging and took 1st place in the contest.

Here's the score:

Construction: 32/40
Detail: 17/20
Conformity: 20/25
Finish: 16/25
Scratchbuilding: 11/15
