Thanks for the ongoing interest, my friends.
I might add something soon there, since I wish to try a card + paper building.

Well, as I said this morning, the project has suddenly been restarted, with work being done in three areas : I cut cardboard walls for four buildings.

One was described with a drawing in a topic named 'Small logging dioramas' : http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=31494&whichpage=2
A second one might be built as a small structure in the 'Challenge' challenge : http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=31639&whichpage=16
The two last ones are part of the Chambers Coaling Co. diorama : http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=26230&whichpage=10

While today's working essentially consisted in cutting pieces of cardboard, and holes into them, I have a rather clear idea of how the buildings will be done and hope to make progress rather quickly. The cardboard will be covered with paper strips decorated to look like painted or raw wood, for the windows I'll use lasercut Rusty Stumps ones, and the doors will be made from scratch. Some wood will be used where necessary.
So, I also hope to have pieces to show in a near future.

I understand the importance of having a 'master plan' when undertaking projects like this. I'm looking forward to seeing what the master has planned this time!

Many thanks, my friends for your interest in the layout. So, since I chose it at my project for the 'Challenge' challenge, let us start with the bridge tender cabin. It is a 10' x 20' scale building with a 45° roof pitch and a roof height of 16' at the top, 11' at the bottom, conformally to the requirements of the 'Small structure challenge' of spring 2007.

First comment : after all this time spent doing O modelling, S scale has suddenly become quite small...
Second comment : techniques, old or new, don't depend on scale, and this project will give me an opportunity to test my newly acquired competences on making canson paper look like weathered wood, as on the ship Anne being repaired at Dave's place.

I found the idea for this building in a recent issue of Narrow Gauge Downunder. Here is the start of its building.









The first wall is the rear one, and it has no opening : a good way to make tests. After laying a few paper planks, I tested the decoration. First A & I, then a wash of burnt umber followed by a wash of white (both seriously not uniform...) Then a few details are again A&Ied, and finally a few nails and rust hints are suggested with oil.

Frederic,

Your ability to make paper look like aged wood is amazing.

I also took the opportunity to look back a few pages. Your waterfall and that entire scene is fantastic.
