Discussion in 'HO Scale Model Trains' started by CPTyler, Apr 23, 2007.
This is my first building.
I will show you more when I do it.
One of my friends built one of those. He changed the sign on it to read "Wonder Chairs, if it looks good, it's a wonder!".
This is Tylers first kit. He works on it every morning before school (with supervision)
I am trying to get him to use small amounts of glue, with a toothpick.
For an 8 year old he is getting better! , and learning patience.

Looks like you are off to a good start!
Patience is something you need to be a good modeler. Some people just slap kits together and wonder why they don't look good. The patient modeler can put a kit together and people will look two or three times and still wonder if it's a kit or a built-up.
Well done Tyler, keep us posted on your progress.
Remember Grandpa's are a great source to learn from, mine taught me many lessons I am now starting to pass to my son.
Here are some more photo`s of my building.
I have worked on it some more.
We did more work on my building.

re almost done
hey cptyler good job on that building i like it keep it up
Well, I guess the posting picture issue was fixed ! LOL
That's coming up a real treat. Keep up the good work.
Give it a good spray of Testors Dull Coat to hide any glue that shows. Covers it well, I dull coat all my structures and most of my cars.
What is your next project?
Great job! Keep up the good work!
Do you weather before or after the dull coat? And I have used hairspraiy to seal in the weathering, although I am not 8 yrs. old and did not have to worry about glue showing!
However, for his first building Tyler is doing a great job. I think we will work on a small scratch build shed next. Just to get his little creative juices flowing! LOL :mrgreen:
He is finished with the building and now that the posting issue seems to be solved will put up last pictures Monday.
Thank you guys for being so warm and welcoming to a child. I do not want him to get hung up on destructive computer games and violence like that.
You are doing fine CPTyler the building looks good. I like Model Power buildings because the assembly instructions are detailed and the parts are not too complicated to assemble.
Now you just have to learn how to weather it with a mixture of some rubbing alcohol and India ink.
I too , like anyone else , have problem posting pictures but we have to give some time to Peter the Administrator to fix that problem. He must have some time for family life too.
