    In case anyone thinks I've given up on the Poor Fork Mining layout, here's another kitbash I've been piddling with over the last few weeks...still not finished...need some doors, stairs, & more details...
    Once again, I started with a Model Power farmhouse, & added some scratchbuilt bits...
    It will eventually find a hyome in the town of Glasgow Jct.

    Thanks guys! :)

    I appreciate the many of the photos of the Appalachian region dating back to the late 19th, & early 20th century, feature unpainted, rough-hewn wooden structures.

    I also read a book by John Grisham called A Painted House, which depicts a Mississippi farm family during the 1940's, & where paint is a luxury only the more well-to-do town folks can afford.

    That's the look I'm trying to get on this layout.

    Ralph's for fun!

    That looks real nice Charlie! Very realistic. By the way, I like the fall colors in the background.

    That's real nice, Charlie! Did you use two houses? What a totally different building you've built. Great work.

    Thanks again for the kind words, everyone! :)

    Thanks Gary!
    I did use a wall section from another kit, along with some Evergreen clapboard siding...I've had so many of these things that I can always find pieces in the scrap box...
    These are such generic little kits, they can be chopped up, added to, & rearranged into all kinds of different things.

    Great job! This is one of those "D'oh, why didn't I think of it..." deals...

    What a great way to make a quick distinctive structure. Thanks for the inspiration!
