Today I made a rocky peak to justify the curvature of the track leading to the freight shed and coated the ascent leading to the bridge

I propose you the beginning of a small construction of an old west station to install it later on my layout. The frames are in samba of 9x9, the vertical and the blades are in balsa of 1mm, the frames of door and window in balsa of 2.











You see that the two sides are not of the same width, it is normal since the station will be skewed and contiguous to the backdrop. I also added a small shed which I am finishing the roof and then I attack the one of the station

I really like your use of balsa on this build. Looks like the grain is going in the right direction and should weather well.
Thanks for the tip on using those right angle picture frame vices!
Looking forward to seeing more of your progress.

Thank you Mike and Sully
some pictures but bland daylight colors that are darker in reality.
What do you think?

Wow, that's a superb build! :)

Are the doors and windows scratchbuilt?

Hello everyone
After spending a good fortnight in the masonry, I resume my modeling activities.
Having bought ink cartridges (more expensive than my printer) I made signs for my station.

Here is what it gives

Nice scratch build. Looks great!

Seeing the roofing on the rear extend above the front reminds me that they did the same thing with some slate roofs. They called it a Combing Ridge.

It is a take off on the old Gillette maxim of "Give them the razor, and sell them the razor blades"

The new engine house location looks a lot better to me.

It's only make-believe
