and yeah, i'm gonna build it out of wood.
no styrene, though i DO have enough clapboard sheet to do it....
kebmo Posted - 10/21/2019 : 11:39:02 AM
last night i took a straight edge to the drawings that mike sent me in order to get the dimensions (i.e. bottom of windows, spacing etc etc.)
when i start this project i will start a new thread and document the build.

The Tichy and Grandt Line parts are probably too fancy for what you want to do anyway.

Kevin, so now it's an O scale all wood structure, except for some details?

Will be curious to hear about your transaction with Grandt Line...since their "reincarnation".. please keep us posted.

Grandt Line and Tichy both make railings.

May I also vote for wood for your structure. Yes, construction time will be longer, but the weathering effects you will probably want to achieve will probably be easier to produce. If you have some new technique or mediums to produce some specific weathering or texture with styrene, then I'd go styrene, but that would be more of a sandbox model in my estimation.

Nice work!

kebmo Posted - 10/20/2019 : 3:13:37 PM
if i can find them at grandt line or tichy, i will purchase them. if i can't i'll make a jig and scratch build them.

Michael Hohn Posted - 10/20/2019 : 10:07:19 AM
Except for some of the porch components Iíd opt for wood, probably. Iíd worry about contrast between the crispness of styrene and the softness of wood. I know thatís pretty subjective and hypothetical until one actually tries.

thanks greg.
carl: you would..... :)
Carl B Posted - 10/19/2019 : 7:50:48 PM
I vote for wood all around.
Ensign Posted - 10/19/2019 : 5:44:43 PM
Hi Kevin, just catching up here with your completed photos that you shared.
Your 90% finished scene looks wonderful!
I think if you photographed it outside when it's 100% done, it will look even more real!
