Hello, My name is Scott. And, I can not stop building structures. Is there a 12-step program for this sort of thing? The following are pictures of a trading post/canoe rental building that will be located on one of the new 1/2 corner modules in our club layout. Basic board on board balsa construction over foam board, some scrap board/batten sheet I had laying around, photo texture paper roof, and miscellaneous signs I collected from the internet.

you are going to need a bigger layout.

Hey, Scott,

Looks real good.

Where do you get your figures ?

What scale is this ?

Keep up the good work.

The signs are a wonderful touch, Scott...the structure has lots of character.

Why would you want a 12-step program when it's a healthy addiction? ;o) None of us want to see you kicking the habit anytime soon!

Rich,

I can tell you it's On30, I cannot tell you where he gets the figures, but I expect they are a mix of Artista and others

The figures used on this model are Woodland Scenics (some are the fishing fathers and sons). One figure (bending over) is a modified Tamiya (sp) German Tank maintenance soldier in 1:48 scale. They come in a set with great accessories. However, you have to assemble legs and arms, and sometimes heads. Great detail but a pain in my (impatient) opinion. Scott

Great new structure, Scott. It's sure your addiction may result into the need to buy another room to host the little buildings...

Here I was planning a nice productive day, when I stumbled onto your thread. I spent all afternoon reading and enjoying your modeling.

On second thought maybe it was very productive. I learned a lot and can't wait to put some of your ideas into motion.

Thanks for sharing,
Bill

Yet another fine structure! I have been suffering from the same condition... Try relieving the pressure elsewhere

In an effort to try something a little different I have decided to try and salvage an old building I kit bashed many years ago but never really found a place for on the layout. The Losten Foundry will be built from a base of two HO-scale Revel Bakery kits (the brick looks about right in O-scale) stacked to create a small brick industry. The windows look about right and by adding a door or two in O-scale it is acceptable in size. I plan on adding some wood lean-to sheds and a wood office structure to cover a gapping hole in one end (and add some character). There are a lot of bad seams that will need to be covered by piping and such - we will see how that goes. The following pics include a quick sketch study (as seen from the main line) and the shell of the existing building. Stay tuned! Scott

Yesterday our module group met and one of our members delivered some Bachmann Donkey Engines he purchased en-mass for some of us. The detailing is excellent. The model represents a smallish machine in O-scale (could even be used for HO and S), but still very nice. It comes assembled (except for two small parts) on a small skidder and painted. However, I brushed on a wash of wrought Iron black and some rust streaks to present a little weathering. I intend to build a larger skidder out of balsa and perhaps display the model as flat car load. A wonderful model for very little effort, for about $25.00. Scott

Just about complete with the Losten Foundry. I still need to build a water tank and some stairs to the upper office door (other side of building - I hate building stairs and rails), maybe a few signs. Not sure when I will get around to that, so I thought I would share now. As mentioned earlier this build started from some HO-scale Revel kits that I have had pieced together many years ago but never really used. Scott
