          Outstanding examples of scratchbuilding, Wallace! :up: I especially like the mining supply building in the second photo.

            Nice collection of buildings Wallace. :up: They have some interesting shapes. Did you design them?

              Wallace, a nice collection of structures. What materials did you use in construction?

                  In answer to George D and Dutchman, I use

                  scribed wood for the walls, Grandt windows and non-opening doors, and Campbell's shingles. I get my inspiration for structures from FSM, South River, Bar Mills, and prototypes. I then measure the space available, and start cutting the siding. I don't draw plans, but simply go ahead with the materials. I make the wooden doors to slide, or open on hinges, wherever I can. Any weathering is done lightly, as the era I model is about the time the buildings would have been built. I also scratch-build most of my cars, as plastic does not simulate wood well, and the era modeled used mostly wooden cars.
