Mike Chambers passed away on March 30, 2010. Most of us never met or even spoke to Mike. But we got to know him through emails, forum posts and his work in the Craftsman's Corner and other pages on RR-Line. Walt (Rusty Stumps) brought us "The Tie Hacker's Cabin", an original scratch built design by Mike.
Mike's cabin photos can be found here: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14811

Several of us have been working on our versions here: http://www.railroad-line.com/discussion/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=32154

Hopefully, Mike would be pleased with our results!
Here's how mine turned out:

You did a nice job with this kit Bill, I really like the aged wood colours you got on both structures.

Hi Bill, you have done a great job on this kit!
The colouring of the wood looks perfect and shows very well in the photo's you have taken.

Outstanding job Bill.

I particularly like the cats lounging on the porch. Must be taking a break from their mousing duties.

Finally done, except for adding a few more figures, with my build of the Tie-Hacker's Cabin. Since there is no running water for our hard-working guy I added an outhouse and a water pump. Also since there are times he likes to hang out with his buds and just kick back I also added a picnic table with assorted bottles around the place because sometimes a guy gets thirsty.















Hope you like. Let me know.

Dave

Way to go, Dave! Now you need to include the cabin on your website.

Nice job!
Bill
