  • Hillside Buildings

    My next scratch build project will be a 1:29 scale diorama that includes four buildings, each stepped at a higher level to fit a hill side. The sketch represents a concept of the build.




    All of the buildings will be cut from foam board with paper siding applied and plastic or wood strips cut to form the windows, storefronts, walks and railing.

    This build will take time and I will post some construction info as I progress.

    Hope you enjoy the builds.

      I will follow this thread as well because this is what many of the buildings in Virginia City look like. I may not be able to add man,y due to space constraints for VC, but I'm interested nonetheless.

      BTW, that looks like a hand drawn drawing. Is it?
      The V & T lives in my garage. Soon...

          Dave,

          You know I'll be following along with great interest.

          Go for another show stopper.

                Dave, this new project looks like an up hill battle indeed.

                And who are these "Names" they seem to own this entire block.

                      What's in a name.

                      Let's do Billy!

                      Billy, Billy, bo-gil-ly, bo-na-na

                      Fanna, fo-fil-ly,

                      Fee fi mo-mil-ly, Billy!

                      The name game. Oh BTW I'll be watching so you better watch your step.

                        Dave,

                        Ingenious decision to complete a new concept for us to watch unfold. PS: watch out for "TED", though... just saying...

                          Frank...Interesting use of the song...made me laugh!

                          Norton, yes it's a hand drawn concept so I can keep my build thoughts on the right track.

                          Everybody, Thanks for the support...see you soon!

                            Great topic and inspiration for many of us. I'll grab a seat and pull out the old notebook...
