  • Very nice shed, Troels.

    Dave and Frederic are bringing up a real dilemma.

    You could share your buildings with your On30-brothers.

    And then starting to build real background buildings. ;-)

    • Anders, you beat me to the punchline on that one. . .

      • Well, I'm building another shed, trying to get it dull and backgroundy :-) It is bigger than the last... four inches long, almost three wide. Ready for some paint!

        • Great start to another structure. Same color as the other?

          • I built a cottage following Troels' methods (mostly) and thought I would share it with the group. It needs some weathering touches and now that it is built, it seems quite large for a cottage. Overall, I am pleased with it. Here is the construction info:

            21' X 27' - O-scale, 5-3/16" X 6-3/4" actual

            Walls and roof made of black matte board, covered with Canson MiTeintes paper clapboards cut in strips for the walls and paper print on standards paper:

            Roof - RooftilesWood0005-S.jpg

            Should be replaced with same image printed on MiTeintes

            Windows - Floquil Grime

            Doors - Sandstone

            Roof Trim - Iron Oxide Brown

            Wall color - Titanium White + Naples Yellow-Tint

            Awning - Crimson

            Chimney carved in pink foam, painted with craft colors.

            I was going to insert a photo here, but when I use the "Insert a file" it gives me an error code without any explanation.

            It says:

            Request object error 'ASP 0104 : 80004005'

            Operation not Allowed

            /forum/outputFile.asp, line 13

            Can someone help?

            • Cool structure Troels !! Rob, think the file is to large or there's something with the name. The forum doesn't understand other than numbers and letters, dots and underscores,scores I believe

              • Rob,

                Try subscribing to a site like Photobucket.com or some other FREE photo hosting site, where you can store your photos.

                If you don't have photo editing software you can edit your photos with you can do it on Photobucket. You have the option of making your photos private or sharing them with the web.

                I use Photobucket my self and chose to keep my photos private.

                  • Well, that is not exactly what I hoped to achieve.

                    It put a link to my photo in the message.

                    Everyone else has their photo embedded in the message.

                    Ah, the mysteries of computerdom.

                    • Rob, if you look in the welcome to rr-line section of these fora, there are some stickies about posting photos using the various browsers... welcome on board, and congratulations with a fine build!

                      Tom, I don't know the color yet, but perhaps a fading, peeling yellow for once...

                            • The new shed is finished and found its place in the back as intended. Only feature is the smokejack on the side.
