Well with the quailty of the scratch builds I'm almost afraid to show my 2 cents worth. But for the sake of conversation I'll show a couple.
But please remember I have only been scratch building for a little over a year and in the hobby for only 2 years. These are built from looking at the pictues I see around the internet.

Very nice . I like L&H Machinery the best myself but then I'm more into the industrial stuff anyhow . The first fine pic of the house had me going for a second ...thought it was 1:1 !

Good work .

Vance,
Those are some nice models. Like Terry, I ma generally attracted to industrial/commercial buildings, but that house is an impressive bit of modeling.

Some very nice modeling. The Steven House is a nice scratch build and I especially like your version of FSM G. Wilikers.

Vance,
Great work. I agree with the others, the house looks like a prototype structure.

Well I sure thank you all for the remarks. But I'm NOT going to ask for that criticism, HA HA there is plenty of that going on over in the nit pick area.
Thanks
Vance

Vance, they all look great. The first picture of the Steven House had me going for a little while too. Thought it was the real thing.

Vance,
Very nice.
As of lover of waterfront structures I spent some time looking for ideas to steal borrow for future scratch builds.

I also like the house.
Did you build it for a train layout or so the gentleman could have a display of his residence?

Hello John
Yes I built it for his layout. They began building the first part of this house on this property in 1865, and it has been added on to many times over the years. The last additions were the porches and they were in 1915. The idea is to show a fine farmhouse, era around 1920 painted white with green trim,cedar shingles and matching outbuildings. He is modeling the Great Northern Railroad as it existed in Minneapolis around the 50's. The paint is a dull off white but due to lighten of the photos to be able to see them good it made the white look bright. I have more pictures of it and the others at http://trainsho.com/v-web/gallery/

Hello all
I did a couple of work benches for one of my projects. The past few days I built a couple more.
