Like I donít have enough to do with my 2 Month Challenge build, Iím finding other things to do in between time. My wife swears I have way too much time on my hands. (so tell me I'm crazy, I can handle it)
I think my logging camp needs a shot gun wedding, so between now and whenever, Iíll be making up a little mini scene with this guy running out the back door of his cabin, while the girlfriend and her father await at the front porch. I took an unpainted Preiser running figure, and put a cowboy hat on him. The girlfriend is also an unpainted Preiser figure that I modeled a pregnancy pose and will be painting the shorts and a skimpy blouse. The Father I used is a Woodland Scenics Rabbit hunter figure. Iíll be painting a beard and a little touchup work. And Iíll have to think of some appropriate cabin in the woods to build, with a front porch, and a back door. Any ideas or pictures for a backwoods cabin would be helpful for ideas. Time will tell how this plays out.

Lou,

That will make up into a neat little mini-scene.

As for the cabin, something like Mike C's Woodcutters Cabin would be great. You could build it without the back addition and with a simpler smoke stack.

Nice idea! Rusty Stumps Tie Hackers cabin is also a great kit.
This is my 'O' scale and HO is the same.

Hey Bruce that was a nice looking cabin Mike did. That's an idea to think about.


Dave, as Bruce pointed out, that would look good by removing the back extension, and just use the front part of the cabin.

I remember seeing one also, I think a cabin with moss on it made by D Huffman or someone else on the forum posted somewhere.

Thanks Larry, my mind never stops, I think it wanders way to much.
I would think in my modeling era, she should of had a "tater sac" on.

Hi Louis,

Nice touch there...

Two points about your expectant mother:

1) She looks like she is almost at full term, so y'all better have the hitchin' real soon - ya'hear?

2) She is carrying so high that it looks like it's gonna be a boy!

(Hope he joins the forum just as soon as he gets his first train set!!)

Best wishes fo' the upcoming 'party'!

John

Here is an update on where I am going with this build.

Although I really like Mike Chambers' original scratch build Tie Hacker's Cabin, I only have a strange shaped new addition (eventually scenic) wooded mountain overlook area to build on. See the pink foam base pictures, for my loggerís cabin that I have to build on.
I found this scratch building plan of a mountain cabin, and Iíll be adding a back door for our ďrunawayĒ. Also, I wonít be adding the basement; Iím going to cut it down to just a crawl space with only two or three stairs up to the front porch.

Hi Louie,

I like where you are going with this and think it will make a great scene.

Thinking you should with a cabin like the one in the Beverly Hillbillies



It's going to be fun watching this come together.

You may be a redneck if...

your porch falls down and hurts more than two dogs.
