looks like a nice shed to build geezer. Also Trainnut a very nice looking build.
I have a few ideas in my head now. This is going to bug me sitting, waiting and watching untill i can start but atleast ill get a long time to plan my build...

Is there any rules other then the finish date and Shed?

Love the sheds, both model and original. Is that (very old)tabacco hanging on the side ?

I'm going for this:



Will try to make a jig/press to produce model sheets of corrugated brass shim stock, have to see if it'll be any good.

The F&B RR is in the transition period (read: anything goes here as long as I like it :-)
so this WW2 Quonset hut must have seen some action to look like this...

Perhaps a side extension with a length of H beam resting on an A frame to hoist
castings from a flatcar to make it more at home on the layout.
If it's to my liking I'll give it a place somewhere in the loco yard.

If it's alright with you Tom et all, I'd really like to throw in a couple of prizes for this challenge: set of original handmade Dutch wooden shoes, bottle of premium old Dutch gin and a good-sized jar of my homemade pepperpaste cooked to the recipient's preference for spicy-ness.

cheers, Leo.

Hi Tom and others? Is it too late to enter?

Looks like a great little challenge, just the thing to get me going again.

Leo, what a wonderful offer...of course its accepted! The awarding of prizes will left to you!....I believe in the "everybody's a winner" philosophy, but that was before I heard what your prizes would be! They are certainly worth working extra hard for
Geezer....wow!, amazing it's still standing! What a terrific prototype...can't wait.
J....beautiful model, but since we're letting you it a little early, I think you should back up and write up what you did and how you did it in detail.....remember that old saying...in your case....."a well written 'how to' explanation with techniques thrown in is worth a thousand photos!
Leo, a nice rusty quonset hut qualifies nicely!
I better get started on my little project before you guys take off with Leo's booty!...tom (or sully)

Hi Everyone,

J, your little shed looks great. Now that you've master the art of posting photos to the forum I look forward to seeing more of your work

Geezer, Wow that's some shed. You gotta love those old derelick structures. I'm working on a depot that's in rough shape in a different thread here on the forums.

Leo, while I'm not a great lover of quonset huts, that one cries out to be modeled. I'm looking forward to your progress

For my own progress, as of 10:00am this morning here's as far as I've gotten

The rear and one side wall


The front wall and other side wall


Nothing all that spectacular. Very little, if any of the interior framing will be visible when the exterior siding is added. The only way to see it will be through the open door.

Finding a hand car in O scale (standard or narrow gauge) is proving tough. Grandt Line offers a narrow gauge push cart and that may have to do for the challenge. I do have some plans I got off the internet and I might be able to use the Grandt Line cart as a basis for building a hand car, but that won't happen within the time frame for this challenge.

PS while I'm not in this to win anything, I'm always up for something


Michael

So is the challenge going to be a free for all, with members posting their ideas, photos, work in progress, etc. in this thread? Could get confusing!
