Carl, coloring and weathering is amazing! Both can pass for 1:1 scale buildings.

I've posted this build on my thread in the Small Scale Section under The Eastern Shore RR in N Gauge. Here's a picture of my engine maintenance shed (the prototype is in Cape Charles, VA).

This Saw Filers Shed was not much of a building project, just something I put together for the logging scene on our HO club layout. This was put together with scrap wood and windows left over from other kits. No prototype. I took the picture on my On30 layout. That's why the car in the background looks a bit large.

I just finished my scratchbuilt model of Sewall's. Took me 3 months and 2 weeks, if you include the days I didn't work on it. The only things I didn't scratchbuild is the outhouse, forklift, and the frame of the Jordan truck, as well as the brick columns up front.

Here is a scratched 1/4 scale version of a "Steam Era Structures Co". A 1960s, release, Handcar/Tool shed W/.yard Office above. I built it as regular section type house instead of the intended design. This is a really condensed version as the actual kit would be way too large to fit into my layout. Nothing elaborate here, just a little side project scratch build'..using all spare parts from the scrap box'..
