  • It's something that the Admins could (and should, perhaps) do.

    Your series of threads was one of the main reasons I joined this board. For me it is not so much about your magnificent finished products, although they are inspirational, but the route, procedures,techniques, tricks, ideas, thought processes, and mistakes (or lack there of in your case)to get there that I find to be so valuable. Magazines are full of photos of great models but there are few places where you can see how it was done.

    This series of threads, with its comments and questions is a masterwork on model making and I expect that many memebers and visitors will want to use it. For example, if anyone on the board considers building any sort of wharf or pier in the future, they would want to read through the Cranberry Wharf section for ideas.

    Perhaps a link to all the previous Volumes at the start of each new Volume would do the trick.

    • I kove the photos here as it is a mix of a real thing and great story telling. Troells, your hotel must be booked all over the year by now. You have this amazing eye to add the right building on the right spot. Love following this thread!

      • Clapboard from balsa, roof and trim on the Crabapple house. A coat and a half of paint too. Chimney(s) and front porch tomorrow.

        • A charming addition, simple but with personnality.

          • Troels,

            Another wonderful addititon. Just fits in with everything else you do.

            Question what size clapboard are you using?? 1x8 O-Scale?? And what is the reveal of the boards?

            • As always, Troels, each scene comes to life beautifully. I like the picture with the log loads and the ICE warehouse. Looking great! :up: :up:

                  Jerry, I'll have to measure tonight I just set my balsa stripper by eye... I'd guess the boards are around eight-nine inches with seven reveal, but I'll check. I usually have them a little wider that "correct", since this make the image of the building easier for the eyes to decipher, especially in the background.

                    • Troels, Back on Page 49 you built a little shack

                      you show a broom & what i would think is a coal box. The broom looks like a Scale Link item (lots of detail) Is the coal box as I call it also a detail you bought & if so from who? The hinge detail on top of the box has a good look. As always your modeling seams to get better & better with each building no mater what size it is

                      Thanks,

                        • Troels,

                          Thought I better say Hi, I check in often but have run out of words to say to describe the fantastic modeling your doing, you're a great inspiration to the rest of us.

                          The Crabtree residence is just another great building and it's simplicity is striking and effective.

                            Love this photo and the detail in color... Everthing fits perfectly, this should be studied by everyone in this hobby. It is not completed with scenery but give away how it is made and how it will look when it is finished. The contrast of the buildings and those pulpwood cars are perfect too the one with the fighter plane is very much alive while the new one looks like it was sort of abandoned, like ghost house. I guess in town there is alot of stories of the people who lived in it. Or perhaps someone who had died in mysterious way in a room, and haunted them who had betrayed this person for their remaining years... Or someone who was the harmless oddball of the town who lived in it, where everything was a disorder of chaos. someone who ceased to exist and was gone for ever. It is amazing how a picture can make a story or two, perhaps at times unlike the original intentions.....

                              • Troels,

                                The number on the Ice building makes me think. . . . . In the old telephone exchange system, geography was mixed with numbers, (Think "Pensylvanya-6-5000"). In New York It could be neighborhoods (Gramercy-234), but in other places it might be cities-- Cranberry-Cove-1-52 or something like that (the middle number would be a subset of cranberry cove). Although not your intention (I don't think), seeing "Tel 174" makes me think that something like the old exchange system on a sign could add to the mood. Just a thought, you can reach me at Cranberry-24. It's a party line though.

                                Looks great as always.

                                P

                                PS, here in small town Utah it is still customary in some towns to give only the last numbers when someone asks--as everyone is on the same exchange. Much as you have it on the ice building.
