Howdy Mark,

I searched for newspapers on Google, went to the images tab, and downloaded the images of the ones I wanted. Next they were imported into Inkscape, arranged for easy cut out, and finally printed them until I got a good 1/48 ratio. Hope that helps.

BTW, Inkscape is a wonderful and free scalable vector graphics program.

Have fun,
Mike Corley

Howdy folks,

Thanks for the comments folks. They make me smile.

The front wall is finished except for weathering. The end walls will be fully covered in boards. Next up is constructing the roof. I plan to make it a lift off, and this is new for me. I have a lot of electrical lines to run for the lanterns that will line the walls and hang from the center. Did I mention the clerestory? Yikes!

Happy rails,
Mike Corley

Not bad for an amateur. I guess you are having fun. After all your not working on club and nmra computers and web sites.

Howdy folks,

Little progress will be reported when little progress is made; therefore, here are a couple of photos of the kitchen ends.

I will be away from the bench for a week taking care of family business, but will return!


Outside of ends, door cutout but not framed




Inside of ends


The clerestory ends will be covered with the same wood as the siding, then framed for the roof. The uneven boards on the ends will be tucked behind the side walls after fitting together.

Happy rails,
Mike

Howdy Philip,

I got mine from FOS Limited years ago at the 2007 Craftsman Structure Show. Same prices as now: https://fosscalemodels.com/products/3m-transfer-tape-1-wide-roll.

Here is the same stuff on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/3M-465-Adhesive-Transfer-Roll/dp/B00ESJN2HW/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1522551932&sr=8-3&keywords=3m+465+adhesive+transfer+tape

Hope this helps.

Have fun,
Mike

Howdy folks,

What are folks using for exterior door pulls or handles? I made the last ones from brass, but up close they were not convincing. Still learning in O scale.

Have fun,
Mike
