Pier Shed Almost Done

The blue pipes enter the building
 through the window.
I did some work on the details for the pier shed. I added some of the signs and made the fire water pipes.

The water pipes for the fire suppression and fighting system were probably add-ons to the building. They make a colorful and interesting detail.

Next I need to add the lights, flag pole, some trim, a drain and some fencing.

Yes, that is the little old lady from Pasadena. She now drives a Porsche.

  1. Are those some WWI sandbags I see in the street near the sewer intake? Regardless it seems that if there is a fire the water pipes are big enough to save the day.

  2. Yes, they are sand bags. I think they are due to some construction underway nearby probably supposed to contain mud from excavation.

    The actual water pipes are quite big. I made mine slightly under scale size to use 1/8th and 3/32nd tubes.

    Very impressive. Have you seen the Port of LA's Historic Resources Evaluation Report for the Port of Los Angeles Master Plan Update
