It reminds me of my Lincoln Logs, except for the chinking.

First time trying to upload an image so forgive me if this does not work well! I've got some neat images from a ghost town we visited a couple of years ago outside Ouray Colorado that was full of neat modeling ideas and details. Guess I need to relearn resizing images!

And here is the Kit built.

and the back side;



I enjoyed this kit. It was a little harder than the store but not bad. The biggest difference was that slot between the "log" was a little thinner making it harder to paint the morter lines. I like how Wild West gives you the option to have square windows or the ones I used with the peaked sashes. I think the house needs a front porch but looking at the over all design of the house and considering that it's prototype is in Colorado I concluded that the front door is the visitor door and that the back door with it's added entre is the main door to the residence. That is most probably the way I'll set it up when I plant it into the scenery. This Cabin is the first house in Millers Slough from when it was only a trading post on the slough. So the last was the first and now it's time to layout the slough. First though I must return to some mechanical engineering and resume work on my moguls.

Enjoy

Bob

Bob,
Really nice build! That building has an interesting shaped back side though.

Bob:

That turned out great!

I like the mud room on the back of the structure. I figure those types of entrances were used during winter/inclement weather to help retain heat in the home (in the case of extreme cold) as well as keep the mess (if wet/muddy) out of the house.

Scott and Andre, Thank you. Yes, the mud room adds a lot of character to the building. As you guys who deal with it regularly know, The problem isn't the snow it's the mud.

I want to share a new (to me)product that I found on Shapeways. It is for a passenger car build by Harlem and Hellingsworth for the Long Island Railroad on 1867.. Take a look;





Great detail and it snaps together precisely. THIS IS NOT A KIT. you provide your own railing, truss rods, window glazing and any other details(like couplers and trucks) you want. He makes this available in White Natural Versatile Plastic for 58.22. If you want this car to blend in with some wood built passenger cars this material would be a good choice. I got as the pictures show, Smooth, Fine Detail Plastic for 88.74.
Here's a hotlink;
https://www.shapeways.com/product/8DTQWMYXR/ho-lirr-harlan-clerestory-coach?optionId=172772556&li=ostatus

Check out his shop. he has several interesting products available including Period freight cars and civil war wood beam trucks. Also of interest is a brass frame designed to use OLD tool Bachmann American parts (Driver spacing is different) that looks very promising.

Best, Bollinger Edgerly Scale Trains, Makes a line of stains. I'm pretty happy with my A&I black stains but I wanted more verity of brown stains. So I got two of his brown stains, Murky brown and Medium Cherry Brown. Here's the first test.
Before, stained with A&I blacks stains;


The Murky on the left the Medium Cherry Brown on the right;



I choose to tone down the red with some more A&I stain and this was the result;



I'm happy to add these stains to my tool box. I think they well be very useful.

That passenger car is something to behold.

Stains look good too.

Stains look good. Hard to decide what to use to do the upper portion of the stone crusher building.

Thanks you guys. I'm glad you enjoyed the reviews. I really appreciate the support.
I'm still debating whether to put a roofed, front porch on the house to weather the rain of Oregon.
