Seeing there are many camp cars back shop built, most any design will work for your style. However, you have found quite a selection of proto ready built and being built camp cars, as well as models. Thanks for the proto car photos Mike.

Glad to see you working on something now. I think you enjoy building even more than operating, I know you enjoy both.

Howdy folks,

Completion nears for the kitchen car. Later in the week, I will shift focus to details, including chickens, wood stump with ax, cook, wash tub, and porches. Those should be a lot of fun.

Today I finished the clerestory windows glazing, roof panels, and screen doors and window screens for the kitchen car. The screen doors were cut with a Cricut Explore and the screen is from black organza ribbon. The roof is from Rusty Stumps cedar shingles and is a more gray than the photo suggests.

Here are a few photos of the results.

Happy rails,
Mike Corley

That is a great idea for screens, "organza Ribbon'. I would of never thought'..I'v used old pantyhose, with good results. But it is difficult to hold it down and keep in place while gluing. The ribbon looks much easier to apply'..Thanks Mike', great tip'..

Nice job with the Cricut Explore, and the screen works well.

Howdy folks,

Thanks for the comments. I was surprised at the cost of the organza ribbon. Here is a breakdown from Hairbows.com:

7/8" Sheer Organza Ribbon 007 Silver 10yd 10137810007 1 $1.12

7/8" Sheer Organza Ribbon 030 Black 10yd 10137810030 1 $1.12

1.5" Sheer Organza Ribbon 030 Black 10yd 10131510030 1 $0.99.

The shipping was $2.99, so all in all not bad in my book. The package arrived quickly.

Have fun,
Mike Corley

Howdy folks,

The kitchen car is nearing completion. I think I will recut the screen door and window to make them a tad smaller. Still need a roof cap and a lot of other details, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Happy rails,
Mike Corley

Man:
We sure are getting hungry here at the logging camp!
It is looking good! Can't wait to see it on the layout.

Very nice Mike, you have my creative juices flowing once again for building logging camp structures.
Mine are on the scenery, but some on flat cars being mobile would add a lot to the layout. Mike keep your progress ongoing!

I am sure we could rustle up some K rations for them. Do they wanted them heated or out of the can? ~ mike corley

Mike,

Very nice. Seeing projects like yours tempts a person to build a model or two in O scale. I am picturing it in my hands or on the table in front of me to get a sense of its size.

Looks like a place to get a good down-home meal. That is, if the cook is a good one.

Mike

Looking pretty good Mike'. Is it going to be scenery or on trucks? What are the dimensions in case we want to copy cat it'...

Howdy Mike, this is my first O scale project, and it really forces you to think differently. Everything shows while in HO, it was easy to hide a few mistakes. At this scale, you start worrying about hinges, door handles and the little stuff. It all amounts to a lot of fun. ~mike corley

Howdy Ted, thanks for the comment. This structure will be on skids vs trucks. I'll have to draw something presentable for the forum, since I built it from sketches. It is 40' long and 12' wide. ~mike corley
