I'm in on this one too. Never too many great looking boathouses!

It's going to be interesting to see how this turns out, Rob.

Looking good, Rob.

I don't recall ever seeing scribed siding attached to matt board before. Interesting.

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks you Bob, Jim, George, Frank, Mike & Mark, for your interest.

Frank, Hope it's a big bucket of popcorn, as I work really slow.

Mark, For all my O scale wood structures I always mount the siding onto matboard. I still initially get some warping, but a couple of days under a brick paver flattens it out.
And as this model has large openings, the interior will be visible, so the board will represent interior walls, rather than having visible bracing.
I think I model differently to a lot of others.


Regards Rob

My current build.

The two end walls are cut out.

Left side


Right side is two pieces, as the top juts out.

Rob, you have to give us more than 2 walls. I'm half way through my popcorn and only 2 walls.

Your usual is "N" scale. Switching to "O" scale must be pure joy.

Frank. Bit of a delay on the modelling front.
My daughter's getting married today, so I guess that's my priority at the moment.

Carl, yep big jump from N to O scale. I could fit a whole N scale city block into this structures footprint.

I do enjoy both scales equally.

My daughter's getting married

Congrats! If you follow the tradition of the brides parents paying for the wedding....
I suspect your finances may have been impacted....

Rob, I hope you had these modeling supplies already in hand....
