Here are some shots of a little shack I have been working on.
Using the corregated metal and the PCB stuff for the first time.
Started out as a simple project, kinda grew.
Basically my coffee sticks, some real sticks and a few detail items.
There are a couple of other pictures at the end, one a close up of the toolbox.

Looks great. I like how you used twigs for the foundation, steps and posts. You also reminded me that I need to order the last four tip sheets from Mic. Maybe I'll wait till the NG convention and see if someone is selling them there.

Really beautiful work. I like that smokestack a lot, and all the small details really make it look stunning.

Marty,
I love it! Those steps are a great idea, and the whole package just seems "right".

Good looking shack Marty. I like the variety of materials and textures for such a simple building.

Nice looking stucture! Just crooked enough to look right.

Is the bark left on the unpeeled logs real or did you model it? If modeled, how did you do it? It looks great.



Thanks,

That's some excellent modeling, Marty!

Looks like you put Mic's tip sheet on building a tool box to good use. Very nicely done.

All the bark is real.
I think all the "sticks" came from the Oak in my yard.
The roof does have a built in dip in the middle, but it doesnt really show.
The lean just happened but it was "hoped" for.

O scale

No tip sheets here Mike, just experience hauling my dads toolbox around for years.
I wish I still had it......

After seeing the pics I see some stuff on the toolbox I need to fix.
Wonder if I can do through dovetails in 1/32" thick stock?......
Thanks guys

-Marty
