These benches are HO Scale. Here in the last couple days I have done 2 more. They are all wood scratch built. The last one in the list has all 6 drawers fixed where they will side in and out. So you have to be careful not to loose your drawers with this one.

Thanks Joe,
I put them on ebay, The same guy is bidding on all of them. They are worth at least 20 each but dought I will get that for them. I just love building things like this. I am going to try to build one of the old rolltop desk with some paper holding boxes next.

Okay, with SO much info in this forum it took me a while to find this thread. As a late comer to this topic, first I want to compliment all on some great work. I love the scope of projects from tiny detail parts to complete complexes of buildings. Great work all!

In the spirit of sharing here is N scale project of mine. If you recall a few years ago Dave Revelia had a contest winning diorama that started with a a couple Yorke structures. One he named the Ott Fence Co. Somthing about that little structure struck a chord with me. I was working on an N scale diorama at the time and that lttle shed would fit right in so I decided to build a version for myself based on photos of Dave's model. This is the result:



The main structure is a single hydrocal casting with the stone work carved in.


Everything that looks like wood is stripwood.


The metal roofing is B.I.S. and some styrene weathered with Bragdon chalks


All wood was weathered with dry brushed acrylics, marking pens, and black A/I washes


The bricked up doorway is a piece of DPM wall cast into the hydrocal


To give you sense of proportion (No, this isn't a "John Allen classic" photo gag ...


Here is the shed in place on the diorama.
A handful of details goes a long way



Thanks,
Dave K in NB

Wonderful Dave. I wouldn't have guessed it to be N if you didn't tell me.

A-HA! You CAN build a model! I was beginning to worry about you - too much time on the golf course!

Seriously, looks terrific, right at home on your diorama. The sagging roof is a nice touch, too.

Hmmm...maybe if I sneak over and kidnap your golf clubs, you might be forced to turn to more model building???

Beautiful work Dave.[:-thumbu][:-thumbu] When I scrolled down to the picture with the ruler, you blew my mind. My eyes couldn't accept the fact that you had such crisp detail in a model that small.

DAve,

All I can say is WOW! I had to go back several times to make sure you didn't photoshop in an oversized ruler . Wonerfully done.

Well Dave, RR-L crew,

this isn't as good as much of what I see on this site ...







but I have fun. My lighting is poor and now that I've taken the photos I see a few things that I need to fix. It is n-scale and just about an 1" wide.

Dave, that's some incredible modeling in any scale, but considering that it is N scale makes it even more impressive. Good work.

As you think, so will you be.

Very nice Dave[:-thumbu]
