This one cried out to me. Photo taken a few winters ago in a place called Strong, Maine in the Western part of the state. Unusual siding here that is metal embossed with a brick pattern.



I didn't stay quite true to the prototype but was just trying to capture the "flavor" of the structure. The model built from Manila cardstock.

Outstanding little scene Chester, The structure while not an exact replica of the prototype really captures the feel of it extremely well. Hard to believe that it is manilla folder card, a fantastic job of weathering subtly to produce a very realistic and believable structure.... Great job. HO?

Very nicely done. You easily captured the look and feel of the structure and added 'life' to the scene.

I posted a couple of pictures of this shed in the sheds and shantys thread. Pat (belg) wanted to see some of the other detail shots so here they are.


























The shed itself is nothing spectacular, but it does have some good weathering and details.

Hi Chester,
I agree that that is a great little old building. You did a very nice job with your structure which actually looks better than the original!!



Look out for #1, but don't step in #2!

Hi John,
That is a great barn (out building). I would give anything to model the old, faded, wartorn and aged buildings like this. People that can model this are true artists!

Very interesting and nice barn, John. The texture and colours of the walls are beautiful. Andy, the one in the sky with the big white beard is really a great modeller.

John, thanks for posting this series of pictures. What a great study in weathering for wood, concrete, metal, felt paper and even the dirt road entrance into the barn. Your series just about covers it all for structures. Thanks again.

I was in southeast Idaho this weekend for a rodeo and came across this old boxcar being used as a shed. Thought it was something that belonged on this thread.





I would have liked to get better photos, but the property was posted no trespassing with pictures of shotguns and such. Thought descretion was the better part of valor.

John,

That is really a vintage boxcar, too. A great addition to the thread, indeed.

John, No use getting buck shot, rock salt in the fanny or dog bit for some pictures for us... But I really do appreciate that you took the time to stop and take the pictures you have posted. Ideas to model... so many ideas... Thanks.

This boxcar is a beauty, and a great idea for a nice scene on the layout. Achieving its range of colours would be a nice challenge.
