After looking at Karl O's Wall, I decided to give it a try in a little bigger form. I'm just going to wing it as I go along...

The base is a 6x8" piece of hardboard...



The two walls came from Randy at DD...they were extra's he sent when it seemed Addam's was going in the trash



I've started the first wall. It's been primed and a garage door and window has been cut in...



Here the wall has been weathered along with the window. I'll be scratching the garage door...



I'll update as I make some progress.

Ken,
I'll be following along. How did you cut the opening for the garage door and window?

Hi Bruce,

I used Randy's suggestion of drilling holes along the scribe lines and then sanding the rest of the way.

The window is routed in. Worked well except for the dust. I also glued cardstock to the back of the walls before beginning for added strength.

Ditto! This looks really interesting, Ken.

As a side note, Bob Van Gelder at SRMW recommends bracing plaster walls with either cardstock or 1/8" square stripwood. I've used both plain white glue and yellow carpenter's glue with good success. Both stick to the plaster with no problems.

Off to a good start , Ken . Looks like red oxide primer for starters . I like the window treatment already .I prefer white glue since it dries almost colourless .

I used Aleene's Easy Flow Tacky Glue for the card stock. Holds really well.

After working on the garage door I remembered I had some old plastic kitslaying around so there was a change of plans. Besides, the wood one looked like crap

Uh, would that be a red light Terry.

Ken looks as if you are off to a good start.
Rather plain Jane right now but I am sure that problem will soon be fixed.
