After featuring Ian’s great line drawings of various Copper Country mine structures last week, I was immediately reminded of another great CC artist that also happens to be a reader of CCE. Several years ago I purchased copies from the MTU archive of the timbering diagrams for Tamarack No 2. This model is built to a scale of 3.5 mm per foot (HO scale) and fabricated using strip wood and milled clapboard siding made from basswood. Some of those metal and plastic details can be seen here, in this close up view of the building’s fire walks atop it roof. Here we see those plastic details standing in for iron bolts holding the batter brace timbers together. This close-up shot shows the building’s poor rock tram, at least the first few dozen feet of it as it leaves the rock house (the poor rock trestle is the short bridge seen in the background). In a project of this nature, as you work on it, you are confronted by questions of functions and purpose for parts of the building. I was born in Laurium in August of 1947, when I took my first breath of copper country air I became addicted to it and the areas history.
David adds that his model making isn’t going to end here, he plans to model the entire Tamarack Mine surface plant as well, including the hoist, boiler house, and other adjacent structures.
I wouldn’t want the job of pushing the fire barrels over atop the burning roof on a wood structure – yikes!
I have to say I take an interest in model railroading as well, and I really admire the guys who model timber trestles and wood-frame buildings like this, accurate to the bolt, with basswood. I had heard that there was a model built in the 1890’s that showed the inner workings.
My name is Mike Forgrave and I’ve been fascinated by the Copper Country ever since first arriving to its shores for college nearly twenty years ago. I would continue to explore the rich heritage of the region for another decade, before I decided to share my adventures in a daily on-line exploration journal that would become CCE.

The kit manufacturer, model kit title, Walthers catalog part number, and structure size (in inches) is listed for each of the HO scale model railroad structures below. Unlike its neighbor to the east, the Tamarack Mine embraced the novel concept (for its time anyway) of grafting a dedicated rock house to each of its shafts. These walkways served as a first line of defense in case of a roof fire, where several water-filled barrels (known as fire barrels) could be tipped over atop the roof to douse any potential hot spots. I wish him luck, and look forward to featuring the amazing finished product when all is said and done. My impressionable introduction to the region’s rich history was the haunting remains of the Quincy Smelter as seen from atop the Franklin Square Inn. Seven years, 1000 posts, and over 10,000 photos later and I'm still sharing my adventures and preserving Copper Country heritage one post at a time.

This is a professionally built architects model of a building that was constructed in Vancouver. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. David’s art is in HO scale modeling, and his most recent work brings yet another Copper Country relic back to life, all be it in a much smaller scale. The shaft and skip road are housed in the tall narrow tower structure seen in the front of the building.
If David didn’t explain that these were plastic I would have swore that they were made of metal.
If the work he’s done thus far is any indication (and I think it is), the finished product will be amazing to see. During my time at Michigan Tech I partook in the classic tradition of Copper Country cruisin’ quite often, fascinated by exploring the many ruins we found scattered throughout the wilderness. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. The gabled building behind is the rock house part of the structure, where the copper bearing rock brought up from the underground was sorted and crushed.
I would have thought that for a model such as this your primary concern would be with the facades, and the interiors would just be framed up in the quickest and cheapest way.
Check individual kit boxes for contents.Landscape, vehicles and figures sold separately unless listed in kit contents.
Some of that rock would be sent out by means of the elevated tramway seen coming out of the back of the building, where it would be dumped nearby in poor rock piles.
But not here, where David paid careful attention to make sure the interior framing was also accurate to the original structure.
The rest would end up being dumped into waiting rock cars, which would have sat underneath the building. Step by step instructions on scratch building a model using free plans found on the internet.
