  • 1:48 Buildings

    I was busy the last few weeks making a few 'O' scale scratch-builds. The construction is heavy card stock with paper and clay siding.

    The first two were a similar version of the 1:29 Tavern and Cheese building I made earlier in the year. This diorama was given to a local food pantry silent auction and they sold it for a nice profit for the pantry.



    Comparison of 1:29 model to 1:48 model.




    The next four buildings are a city block built as a Xmas present for my son's layout.

    Nice looking stuff, Guff. Scratchbuilding is like Morse Code, either you can, or you can't do it.

          Dave,

          Excellent. I am amazed at your creativity and rate of construction. I'll bet you have most of a project thought out before you begin and that as you're completing one step you're planning the next.

            Great models in any scale, Dave. Kudos for helping out your local food pantry, too!

              Dave,

              Nice looking buildings. I like the variety of textures used through the buildings. :up:

                Good looking buildings, Dave. Well done! I agree with Bernd on the variety of textures and design.

                    Jim...appreciate your comments.

                    Southpier...need a translation...as Jim stated, Morse Code, either you can or you can't do it!

                    Carl and TomO...thanks for the nice words...the scale comparison shots are my favorites.

                    Mike...thanks for the positive comments...you're almost right. I sketch the build, decide on dimensions and the various textures I will use and then, while building, my mind is always racing ahead to the next step. Sometimes a build even keeps me awake at night, but I sure enjoy scratch-building.

                    Bruce....thank you for the shout out. It sure gives one a satisfied feeling when you know your build is helping others.

                    Bernd and George...thank you! I wanted to use a lot of variety in the textures...glad you liked it.

                          Dave, is working so well in two different scales sort of like being fluent in two languages? Nice stuff there!

                              Bill...I don't know about the comparison of being fluent in two languages to scale modeling but I sure appreciate your watching and commenting.

                              Philip...thank you very much for your comments.
