Hello folks,

Well, what started out as a simple 3 structure scene has grown into (this is a judgment call) something with 19/16/14 or so scratch-built or kitbashed structures...take your pick, I guess.

There is still a little work to be done on the last 3, but I think I've finally got it under control. I figure if I arranged them carefully I might have a small layout that perhaps a train could actually run on.

Cheers,

Karl O.

Beautiful work Karl. Looking forward on how you place them it should be a hell of a diorama.

Funny how small projects turn into larger ones. Fantastic modeling, as always, Karl.

You went from a 'row' to a 'town.
Excellent work as usual.
Thanks or sharing Karl.


As you think, so will you be.

Hello,

Finished the little false-front building that I did using the "sagging roof" method I showed in an earlier post here in this thread. I like it because you can make the sag as subtle or drastic as you like just by sanding the sub-roof peak as much or as little as you want.






Also, found a couple new things that I like.

These "Glue Dots" are pretty neat. They're VERY sticky and you just burnish them onto what ever you want - in this case a craft stick to hold people for painting. What I like is they really hold the little guys and leave no glue residue on their tiny feet like other double stick tapes that I've used and they are very reasonably priced at around $2 for 200 dots. Find them at gluedots.com or Dick Blick Art Supply. They also make a dispenser gun for the dots but I didn't find any need for it.




Got some Wild West Scale Models shingles and corrugated roofing and will be using them a lot on new projects. The shingles come in several different colors and are a breeze to apply to the roof cards using 3M #465 Adhesive Transfer Tape. I've used the shingles on 2 buildings for this project and I think they look very nice.

The Wild West corrugated is another product I really like. It's paper and has the same corrugated, textured surface that the usual aluminum sheets that I've used for years. The difference with the paper (to me) is that they take coloring much better than the metal sheets and you don't end up having to touch-up the inevitable shiny paint chips I always get on the aluminum product. Cutting the sheets is a breeze using just scissors.




Anyway, just thought I'd share this stuff with you folks...

Karl,

Thank you very much for sharing those great tips with us. Especially the one regarding touching up of the metal sheets. I too have experienced that problem on many occasions, and have yet to find a solution...until now!

Thank you for some very useful info, Karl. I too have experienced shiny metal where there should be rust and tape adhesive residue. And Iím always on the lookout for supplies.

Mike
