    Hi t. That shack is a cute little thing. What will the purpose be on your layout?

    thanks guys
    Clerg I have no idea to be honest..hehe it will prolly end up somewhere close to the freight house. I do see it grown over with weeds.

    Robin it's made of basswood strip and paper. your mastery of cardboard construction has inspired me. I'm planning on working more with paper.

    Russ glad you found the Gauge it is an awsome place fer sure. I enjoy scratchbuild alot. here is a pic of the project I am the most proud of so far. It is done in brass . I model in HO.

    Wow, T! There's a lot of great scratchbuilders here, but I suspect you are a cut or three above. For the benefit of us new guys could you possibly start posting shots of some of your other fine work? I'm sure you'll inspire us all! Thanks-Keith55

    OK, t., a little less shackin', and a little more modelbuilding, and we could all have more excellent pictures to look at!:D :D :D :D

    That really is a character piece, and I too can see it grown over with weeds! Super!

    Ralph's for fun!

    Welcome back t! That is really shackilicious! Or as the B-52s might sing, "Funky little shack!" :) Seriously, a very nice model that will look great on your layout. Successful therapy, I'd say!
  12. That's a great looking little shack, t! To an old hillbilly like me, it looks just like home! :D

    Seriously, that would be right at home perched on a hillside overlooking the Osage River and the OVT&L's tracks. I think you've inspired me to build one of those. :cool:

    Hi t!
    Good to hear from you again!

    Love that little shack!
    That would fit right in on any layout, any era...although I'd kinda like it beside a lake or a river...good place to do some fishin', some drinkin', or just some sittin' & thinkin'!:D :cool: :cool: :D
