    the On30 forum don't want no lousy HO stuff clogging up their workbench, so butchering and re-cladding it, is all it deserved.

    So say you! A Great Northern besides, what a terrible waste of HO scale rolling stock.

    All kidding aside, that was a smart use of that shell section. Your shed came out looking great. From the picture, that looks like a metal roof, if you didn't say it was printed I'd never know.

    • As long as I don't see Larry butchering any N scale boxcars, then I won't be too upset.

      • Nice job of repurposing.
        Shed looks very good except the gap in the roof is distracting to me.

        • Larry nice little shed. But as Rick mentioned the gap in the roof needs attention!

          • Philip thanks; it served the purpose.

            Rob thank you. Ho and N scale are a thing of the past for these
            old eyes.

            Louis thank you. I bought a file online with a whole bunch of
            different stuff a couple of years ago in O scale and they do print
            out very nicely.

            Rick and Jerry thank you so much. Yes the ends will be taken care of when
            I do the foundation. Can't get anything over on you guys.....which is a
            good thing, thanks.

            • After trying to fix the shed roof; it didn't look the way I wanted it to. I
              decided to redo the roof so I ripped off the old one and started over again.
              Seems roofs have been the point of contention here on the forum lately:

              It seemed the best solution was to go with a shed style roof. After some careful measuring, cutting, and gluing I had a decent
              looking roof. Then painting and weathering was added to blend everything together.

              The roof material is the same as before. Also I started adding the scenery material and the end of this mini scene will
              terminate at the end on the ramp going into the Machine Shop. Since this is a small scene I decided to try something different.
              Instead of laying down the base scenery material first then adding things like weeds, detail parts, and etc. I'm going to add the
              base weeds and detailing parts, then I'll add things like dirt and grass. It may take longer to do but I'm hoping for a better
              overall look, so we'll see.

              That's about it for now. Until next time.

              • Larry,

                I didn't know that roofs could be so contentious. However, I do like this one better.

                      • Mike it would appear so, although I didn't think you could catch "roof disease"
                        but I guess so.

                        Michael thank you and yes I like this one much better myself.

                        Philip thanks, although did took a little longer than a "poof" to build.

                        Rick thanks, much appreciated.

                        Jerry thank you and remember your own words with the Mill.Lol.
