  • This is a finely detailed model, Martin, with a nice and interesting interior.

    • Thanks, Frederic!

      Here's what it's forerunner looked like. I sold out of these little kits quite a few years ago, unfortunately, but I am considering getting my entire line back into production later this year.


      In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

      • I just finished the fourth structure in my "Grandchild Series". This scratchbuild is named after grandson Nick. The build is documented in this thread: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/t...44&whichpage=1

        • This is a very impressive, and beautifully built, structure, Bruce. And I love your concept of a "Grandchild series".

          • My turn: some stuff I've been scratch building, for my layout, The Neo Canaan R.R., starting with an abandoned building shell:







            Here's one house I did from scratch:





            ......and a Sinclair gas station:









            .....as well as an ice machine dispenser













            All were built out of leftover scraps that I had years ago, so I tossed it all together with glue, paint and ingenuity Amazing whbat you can do with styrene; the gas station is under construction but i hope to finish it.

            More coming soon.

                Those were done in 2008 or 2009.

                • I seem not to have contributed anything to this thread in a couple of years(!), so here's an addition. It's a scratchbuilt structure based roughly in part on the building FSM offered under the title of "Seafood Emporium" a number of years ago...with some liberties taken and now employed well away from blue water as a plumbing supply company.

                  • This is one of my favorite FSM designs, John. Your transform of this seafront building into a "dry" industry (if I can say that plumbing is dry ) is very interesting.

                      • Hope these pics come in, first try using my webcam since I don't have a digital camera.This is a scratchbuilt station, Vancleave Station, named after the town I used to live in. All balsa, most of the boards were done by scribing the wood with a soft pencil before painting. The shingles are fine sandpaper cut into strips and tabbed. The windows, doors and railings are all hand made in balsa. I used super glue which worked well and infused into the wood and strengthened the model. It is painted with pactra paint if I remember correctly (its been awhile). The coke machine is hand made using Sculpey, and the schedule board is an actual photo of an L&N board at a local station that I reduced on a photocopy machine. The interior has benches and a counter that can't be seen here, I made provision to be able to insert a light and wanted some interior detail to show. The station sign used to have a light overhanging each side until it got a book dropped on it. I know it's not much but its a start. I found out yesterday what A&I wash was and picked up some alchol and ink today. Can't wait to try it.

                        • This is my latest structure. I wanted a church for my narrow gauge module Salina.

                          • Good looking little church, Wolfgang. I like the way it’s been placed on the hillside with the nice retaining wall and steps and not on flat ground.

                              • You see my module Silver Creek. Trestle, bridge and turnout are scratch built.
