I think that it is about time to devote a monthly Gallery Theme to the art of scratch building. Whether it is a structure (large or small), a piece of rolling stock, some motive power, or maybe just a detail item. If you built it from scratch, please share a photo!

I once again want to caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller

I guess I can start it off with this one. This is my scratchbuilt copy of George Sellios' Hotel Darby.

Very nice start John.
Here's a small waterfront municipal warehouse built from styrene.


And this is the other side finished with scored brass sheet for the roof. I used Tichy windows, cut linoleum block foundation and built wooden doors.

I scratchbuilt this HO "Laser-Cut Wood Kit Scaling Platform" It was listed as no longer available, so I built my own. First picture is of the kit. Rest of pictures is of my scratchbuild.

Chuck,



Without your hand in the photo, you would not know that it is a model. Excellent modeling.

It's difficult to post anything after Chuck's awesome window...

Apart from a few detail parts, almost everything is scratchbuilt there (Dave's Corner, O scale).

Frederic,

The first time I saw this model, it was so attractive, I wanted to build it or modify it.

Well, I never have gotten to it, sorry to say.

You have built a splendid model. I like it.

Oh boy, my favorite subject! Here's my scratchbuilt, 1/24th scale Model T rail bus. I also made the figures, which represent my Dad and my sister:

Here's Dos Manos, the first town on my In-ko-pah Railroad. All the structures are scratchbuilt. (So are the bridges and trestles.)
