Here are a couple of shots of my sandhouse that I copied from Chucks. I wanted to try B&B and peeling paint so this small structure fit the bill nicely.
I must say Chucks technique for the peeling paint was right on! easy and very realistic.

The roof is only temp 'till I get some metal roofing. I worked on the steps last night. Oh and yes the bulb is operational - got it wired up last night.







Thanks Chuck!

Very nicely done Marty. I like the shovel and the broom too. Great looking scene.

Marty,
That looks like a neat little structure. The peeling paint looks very realistic.

Also like the peeling paint. Could you give a brief description of the technique, or direct me to where it can be found on the forum. Also noted the door handles. I am now doing nothing but scratchbuilding-and door handles have been one of the things I haven't come up with a good method or. Any suggestions out there? Thanks

I have to agree that it's a great looking scene. In addition to the boardwork and paint, I like the way you handled the bulb wires . . .looks real natural like. I don't normally light structures, but I'll have to remember that one.

Dave,
For my background building, I made them out of thin wire.



However, SS Ltd. has them available from Walthers. Here is the link: http://www.walthers.com/exec/productinfo/650-2087

They also have a larger handle with part #650-2086

Thanks, I hope this inspires some of you to try it (or something new)

Dave handle is Grandt Line
Unfortunately they only come with a boxcar set.....
The SS ltd are great, too bad you cant get them.

here is a link to Chuck's previous post on how to do the peeling paint;

There is a whole page devoted in the Finscale Railroader annual that is out now.
If you wish to take your modeling to the next level I highly recomend a subscription.
