Hi- I'm new here and here is some of my scratchbuilt stuff which has been shown on other fora.

United Farm Workers/ Nit-Pickers Union Hall (N)

Lattimore's Barn.. N scale model of O gauge layout in loft.

The real Lattimore had an HO layout in this barn in 1975...I didn't claim this as exact model mof prototype, only as scratchbuilt.

"Shotgun House" built in 1969 (while in a hospital bed for tests) to see if it was practical to build in N scale.

Creotex wood preservation plant. (The 2-story office buiulding was my SECOND N scale model)

Johnston ATSF depot, scratched from proto plan

First State Bank, Johnston, TX

Jayco- N model

Bulk oil dealer prototype

I have some 70 - 90% scratchbuilt projects- don't know if they would be appropriate here. I am new to site.

Welcome to the forum Kenneth!
I love your models well done!
I especially like Lattimore's Barn with the O scale layout upstairs,but how do the members get up there? Very nice touch.

Very nice modeling in N-Scale, Kenneth.

Here is an HO scrathbuild I just finished. Everything is either paper or cardstock except the doorknob, sign supports and the muntins in the little square windows. There are no commercial parts in the build.

I like your shotgun house the best and all of your other builds are great too. It must have been difficult to build in a Hospital bed.

Your scratchbuild turned out great, too.

Lots of good stuff here, thanks for posting. Rather than me repeating my scratchbuilt stuff, I invite you to check out my string in this forum over on the scratchbuilt area.

Bruce, you’re making nice progress on your Master Builder - Cars certificate.

Nicely detailed tool shed, Wallace. What scale is it?

The tool shed is HO scale. It was built for the Goldfield & Hangtown RR (Jan '11 MR). Other pictures can be seen on the members personal websites, page 2.

heres a trailer i built for my layout, its 1/48 and based slightly on one from the 30's. but i was aiming for more of a home built unit, then the small batch run of the prototype.

and with the roof painted

it will sit on bricks when placed on the layout

First post to this thread from me, many more to come. I just finished my first ever scratchbuilt structure, a rural produce warehouse in HO scale. Board-by-board construction, everything except the figures and some of the interior details was built from scratch. Many more photos, and "how-to" info on my blog.

Seems to me the fire inspector would require some metal underneath and behind the stove. But that's a nit on a really nice-looking interior!


Modeling 1890s (because the voices in my head told me to)
