Another small diorama on a business card size base.










HO Shed Under Construction
Posted by darrylhuffman On 05/19/2020 At 12:37:29 PM
A group of friends are having a little contest to see who can build an interesting diorama on a block the size of a business card.

Something like this is easy to put into a larger diorama or a layout later.








Woodland Scenics HO "Tucker Bros.Machine shop"
Posted by Ensign On 05/13/2020 At 4:31:58 PM
Hi everyone, I have been lately focusing on building smaller kits, while at home trying to stay away from COVID-19.
This one comes from Woodland Scenics from their Scenic Details series, it's called "Tucker Brothers Machine Shop"





The entire kit is made up of metal castings, with details cast right into the walls of this little structure.
I don't think that WS makes these anymore, I've had my kit for years now, so it's about time that I built it!
They are really wonderful little kits if you ever come across one at a train show.
This kit also included some dry transfers which I decided not to use.
I added an extra wall casting in the interior, to create a little bathroom.
It had a sink but no toilet, so I added one of those as well.
You can't really see the bathroom because of the wall that I added, however you can see the bathroom from the backwall open door.
Here's how my Tucker Brothers came out looking after painting and assembling.













I also added some LED's to light up this little machine shop.
One red LED in the glowing red forge, and a couple of incandescent LED's to light the rest of this structure.

Dyna-Models Small Barn Build
Posted by Dutchman On 05/02/2020 At 12:05:06 PM
While I work on the finishing touches of the Campbell Oil Derrick build, I have chosen the next project and am getting the walls ready.

Next up is a small barn from Dyna-Models. The copyright date on the plans is 1972.




As was typical of similar kits (e.g. Campbell) of the era, the directions and plans were all on one large sheet of paper.





This shows most of the parts for the barn.



Since I will simply stain the barn siding with A&I, it is un-likely that I will use the window castings. I have little luck making metal castings look like aged wood, so I might just frame out the windows with stripwood.
What do I plant now?
Posted by David J Buchholz On 04/30/2020 At 1:18:15 PM
Later this year , No doubt I will need to be making trees for my HOn3 empire.

Thinking ahead, rather than everyone in the future needing to search through seven pages of tree topics,I was hoping you guys would use this thread as a depository or compendium of information of the collective minds here as to what needs to be gardened in the spring to produce a harvest of plants useful for making trees in the fall.

Nothing beats nature to reproduce nature in miniature.

So have at it. Names of plants, pictures of Seed packages, pics of the growing /grow/, harvested etc.

This isn't so much intended as a "how to" make trees, as much as it is what to plant in the spring so they can be harvested in the fall.

Many thanks for what I hope is a good response.
How to model deadfall?
Posted by jeyjey On 04/21/2020 At 4:41:55 PM
Recent deadfall is easy enough (twigs, etc.), but what about the more ubiquitous "seasoned" deadfall?

Something like in the foreground of this photo:

Just found this site I have looked at several threads. WOW! Karl O. is quite the modeler. I have found several tips that I will gladly use.
Just starting on my railroad after waiting for years for the spare time, spare $ & spare room. LOL (Honest Honey; I'll only spend about an hour a week in there.
Once I get something really going I'm sure I'll register and make some posts.

This site is like the proverbial "kid in the candy store" (shows my age, I guess). I'm armchair modeling in On30 'till the basement's done, and loving the contributors. Thanks !

Thanks for the great notes about the Divco Milk Truck. The Woodward Cruise was the first time it was shown since restoration.
