Chuck, I am impressed with your crisp handcar shed... Ensign? Charming shoe you've "cobbled" together.

Nice work all,
Kyle

Greg, I love your Shoe house. And the one for the dog just tops it off.
Very comical.

Great result on the shoe house, Greg! (I think Mrs. Gordon needs a couple of steps to get up to her front door, though....)

Cheers,
Jeff.

Here is a shot of the completed East side.




I'd like to share progress pics of the West side, but my 15 year old son left my camera at the auto show. I should be able to pick it up at the lost and found soon.

Thanks for the nice feedback regarding the shoe house guys!

Jeff, I will give Mrs. Gordon some steps up to her door in the landscaping stage.
I have something in mind for those, that should fit right into this scene.


Kyle, If your west side looks as good as your completed east side, that's going to be one nice scene you have developed there.
Best of luck with getting your camera back!

Greg,I missed your shoe house somehow. Good fun, but I think Buster's house ought to be Brown :)

Thanks, Bill!
No Buster is already brown, and his only trick that he does well, is HEEL.

After finishing the handcar shed, it begged for a handcar. So, this kind of fits the "Hit the Road" portion of the challenge. And, it was a quick one.

I won a MDC Roundhouse kit containing two handcars at a local NMRA meet as a door prize. Not many parts to it. And, two came in the kit. I see Tichy and Walthers have handcar kits, if anyone is interested. Anyway, here is a photo of the parts for one handcar. Sorry it isn't a better photo.



I looked at photos on the internet to see how to finish it. So, the wheels are Roof Brown weathered with a rust wash. The yellow is Reefer yellow. And, the floor is Earth, to represent wood. And, the handles are Ebony Black craft paint.



And, just to show it in context with the shed, here it is:

Chuck, that's a nifty looking little handcar, that you made there!
Don't you just wish, that you could shrink yourself down, and then take it for a test ride around your pike.
Okay... maybe that's just me, that wants to do that.
