My name is Pete and I have mostly been lurking for the 10 plus years... and I have seen so much talent and learned so much from just about every post on this forum.

I have recently gotten back into building models while I wait for a space to build a large scale layout.

I have been gently coaxed into posting on this site by Sgtbob and recently Guff. So this is my first post of my version of Chippy Hollow in large scale... somewhere between 1:20.3 and 1.24 scale. More on that in future posts.

I still a lot of work to complete, and I would like to thank Sgtbob (Bob Santos)for his tutorial on casting windows. It really works. And Guff (Dave Guffy) for his tutorial on making slate roofs in large scale.

That's it for and more pics of other builds in the coming days.

Pete

Welcome to the forum Pete. Thanks for posting pictures of your current build.

In the future can you make the pictures larger so we can really see the beauty of the build!

Yes, welcome Pete. By 'larger', Jerry means between 80 KB and 150 KB.

Welcome Pete...looking forward to your project, and indeed please make your pictures larger-like 800 x 600 pixels.

Plenty of "older eyes" among us.....

Thanks to those who posted...

I have increased, I think, the size of the pics and added one other.

Some of the techniques I used in building this structure...

It is 1:20 scale overall, but the windows are 1:24. Door are somewhere in between. I am experimenting with forced perspective... the jury is still out on whether this will work.

The core is built from 3/16 foam core covered with sculpey clay, rolled, imprinted with balled up tin foil, baked, cut into individual pieces and glued to the foam core. The arched windows and doors were a first for me... much improvement is needed in this area.

The windows are castings using Sgtbobs' "squash" method made from a master I put together.

The brick addition is foam core covered with bricks cut from thin cork. I think they are a bit big... but good enough.

For the roof I followed Guff's approach to slate roofs... what an effective approach.

I still have a lot to complete including... more weathering, the roof flashing and details, windows on the brick side, some signage and a name... Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks again for your input.

Pete,
I have to give the method for stonework a try! Thanks for the idea!
The many textures on the building give it a lot of character.
Thanks for sharing.

Pete, welcome to RRLines forum and thanks for sharing your work with us here!
Glad that Sgtbob convinced you to share your work with us.
Your version of the FSM classic Chippy Hollow looks very excellent indeed!
Hope to see more of it here in the future.

What kind of a business is this representing?

To all that have commented... Thank you.

I didn't mention that I got the inspiration for this build from HO modeler Jason Jenson over on his facebook page. He does some very nice kit bashing.

One of my big weaknesses is figuring out the names for businesses and the function of the business...

So... any ideas that you may have would be great.

More on this project and others to follow.

Pete

Pete, I don't know why but this sure looks like a SAUSAGE FACTORY to me.
