Railroad Street Buildings for Hard Times Ry
1:29 scale

I refer to my large scale layout as the Hard Times Ry. This build will represent a small block of dilapidated buildings for the town. The block will consist of three structures.

Proposed sketch of the block of buildings.

I started scratch building structures in 2014 and needed a lot of help. The members of the RRL forum supplied the needed help by posting their builds with step by step instructions and also supplying feedback, suggestions and ideas to help me and others to become a better modeler.
Over the years I often named buildings after the RRL members that helped me.
Frank Palmer has been very influential in my model building through his work on the amazing large scale Sundance Central Module along with his published model building skills on the RRL forum. He’s always there to provide positive feedback and answer questions to all.
The first build of this block will be named the Palmer Feed and Grain consisting of heavily weathered siding, windows and doors. I chose to use a few of Frank’s ideas like crackle medium for the siding and adding rust and nail holes to the feed and grain project.
Frank, I only hope I can do justice to your methods.

The building shells will be constructed of foam core covered with construction paper siding.

Next step: Making the siding

Looking good. This is going to be a wonderful grouping of structures.

Making progress Dave'.. Looking great as usual from you'...Keep going'...
BurleyJim Posted - 01/18/2021 : 2:08:15 PM
Looks great!

Added concrete headers and awnings to windows, signs and weathered the building. (Pictures are faded by too much lighting during photographing}

Next: Roof detailing and board up a window

Thanks Rob. Yes the curtains are stained. (A Darryl Huffman Process.) Dabbed tissue paper with a diluted mixture of water and light beige acrylic. Colored the tissue on a glass sheet and after drying carefully scraped of with a razor blade. This process gave wrinkles, tears and a stain appearance to represent old curtains.

Nice windows Dave. Curtains look excellent. In the first photo, that look slightly stained. Is that correct ?
If so, nice effect.
Guff Posted - 01/15/2021 : 10:55:07 PM
Thanks Greg and Ted! I'll try to get back to my old routine of making a building a month.
quartergauger48 Posted - 01/15/2021 : 7:59:52 PM
Nice job on the windows Dave'... Now let's get going, None of us are getting any younger waiting'...
Ensign Posted - 01/15/2021 : 7:12:20 PM
David, it's about time you got off your sash and worked on this newest building currently under construction.
The windows look great in place.

Guff Posted - 01/15/2021 : 4:51:28 PM
I need to stay away from addictive video slot games and get back to building structures!
sgtbob Posted - 01/15/2021 : 4:10:37 PM
Dave, Looks good so far, what do you do to kick it in gear???

Guff Posted - 01/15/2021 : 12:44:40 PM
Thanks Jim! I'm moving slow on this build...got to kick it in gear!
BurleyJim Posted - 01/14/2021 : 1:50:15 PM
I'm getting ready for the 'Grand Opening - Close Out Sale'. Looking good Dave!

Guff Posted - 01/14/2021 : 1:36:01 PM
built windows from basswood strips, assembled, weathered and added tissue paper curtains.

Installed windows.

Need to make stone headers and awnings and move on to storefront.
