Dave, great idea for a build. I went on-line and there’s a load of fantastic looking posters for the oil. You’re off to a good start and I’ll be looking in as you go.

George you sly dog you, a marathon runner wow.

Thanks Martin and George...appreciate the comments.
Frank, I'm going to use the elephants as a wall poster. Good to have you looking in.

I said back in the 70's, Frank. Old knees and an old body have left me with only memories. Maybe Hamlin Wizard Oil will bring some life back to these old joints.

The foundation stone walls were cut from 7/16” foam board after the paper skin was removed. Carved stones with a dull pencil.

Painted all the stones with Apple Barrel Granite Gray Acrylic. When dry, diluted Americana Lamp Black Acrylic was painted into the mortar joints. Dabbed off the black on most of the stones so only the mortar joints are highlighted.

Added some dry brushed Apple Barrel Nutmeg Brown Acrylic for stone color variation.

Added FolkArt Wicker White to a few stones to add more highlight.



I veered off on a little tangent. I found a free download of a dumpster and decided this will look good at Hamlin’s. Miniature-Empire.com offers three versions in 1:72 scale.



I copied the dumpster drawing into Wordpad then resized to 1:29 scale. (also added more 3d trash)

Dave, I just discovered your new build thread.
Your drawing of what you want to produce looks slick already!
I'm certain that with your talents & techniques it will be one well oiled build!

Dave,

Starting with details can sometimes motivate the overall construction. I like the dumpsters. Very trashy.

Mike,
I agree with you that starting the details can sometimes motivate construction. Sometimes the small details are the main reason I build a structure. Hamlin's is a good example. I was intrigued by the signs and the medicine bottles I found on the web and it lead to the Hamlin factory idea for a structure.

David,

Great looking build!

I know you addressed the foam core for carved rocks in another post but I can't find it. And need some guidance (schooling)!

I've tried peeling the paper backing off Elmers foam core and it doesn't come off easily, if at all. I there a trick I am missing? Help!

Thanks

Pete

Pete, Glad you like the build!

To remove the skin paper from foam core board soak the paper with rubbing alcohol for a minute or so then scrape up a corner with an exacto. if the paper dries out or gets difficult to peel add more alcohol.

One of the stone carving in foamboard tutorials is in the startin' from scratch section Page 9 - Santos Barrel Works.

Have fun!

Glued the wall sections together and added the roof sections.





Closeup of the roof sections. Rusty corrugated sections have been replaced with slate shingles on the main building.

Slate


Corrugated Metal


For those interested, instructions for making both the slate roof and corrugated roofing are detailed in a previous build. http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=46850



The application of the slate roof coating was changed from the attachment. I simply made a small soupy mix of patching plaster added Apple Barrel Dark Gray acrylic paint to desired darkness and painted onto the construction paper.
(easier than the drywall spackle method since shingle is prepainted, good slate texture and only needed to dry brush white highlights onto paper before slitting)

Pete, (PLNT Line) and David, Here's a link to the first of a video series of building models with foamboard.
It shows there are two different types. The type the modeler uses has a urethane foam layer instead of styrofoam and the paper peels off easily without any soaking.
Lots of good techniques and tips in the series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZeT9l4GYMg&feature=youtu.be
