  • O Scale Widget Supply

    O scale.

    I wanted a structure to fit a specific area to replace the little building.

    O scale : Time passed and I made something to fit the space. The structure is made of interlocking Foam Board with cardstock clapboard and Tichy windows and doors.

        This is pretty much what it looks like at this time .. except for weathering applied after watching Jason Jensen do his thing.

        I am going to add an extension .. a tower on the right side with a water tank on top.

          I only had a small space to work with. I didn't want to extend it past the bottom of the bridge abutment and block the alley and the width between the abutment and road.

          It was a bit of a surprise at how hard the plaster was to remove.

            I used Foam Board with the original intent of using cardstock to make the clapboard. Helpfully .. I found a stock of clapboard scraps that I had from Walt Gillespie. Sweet.

            The little level is a Swanson product I got from Lowes. A little Saranwrap prevents sticking to the plaster.

              I realized I could use the Foam Board for a foundation for the building. I had planned to use brick .. I have an order for Monster Model Works O scale brick but it has not arrived yet. It was at this time that concrete would work too. The black line is simply the width of the ruler.

                This looks like an interesting build even though it is not my scale. It will be great to watch you fill the space. Nice.

                  This was just a lead into the extension/tower. If interested in a SBS .. sorta kinda .. of the main building I have it on my website - http://www.deepriverrailroad.com/str...widget-supply/

                    I cut the Foam Board where I drew the black line and then glued in a top and bottom made from task board. I mixed up some acrylic gel and powered grout for texture. I the painted with Folk Art Chalk 'Sheepskin; color. AI wash and Khaki paint wash to finish off. The fit is pretty good but I will add a skip coat of plaster and Cling Wrap. On a side note .. need to do that with the main structure to get a better fit.

                      Looks real good and I am always looking for a new source for widgets.

                          Widgets and Gizmo's are always high on my list, as are your build threads.

                          I'll be following along for sure.

                              Looks great Ed. Certainly has plenty of character.

                              And does have that Jason Jensen look to it.

                              Nice weathering.
