It was five years ago this month that we last devoted a Gallery theme strictly to wood. That time, the focus was weathered wood, and more photos (model or prototype) featuring weathering are still welcome. However, we will expand that this month to look at projects that used wood as the building medium. So, if you reached into the wood rack for your build, post your photos here.

In future months we will feature building with styrene, paper, plaster, metal and other assorted materials.


I once again 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 will start with two small detail items.

I scratch built this little bench from wood.



This coal bin had a solid balsa core with strip wood glued over it.

Seeing Cody's little car with log load reminded me that I built one out of wood in HOn3.

Always amazing Chuck, grabbed one of my walls from a couple of years ago off the shelf. All wood, scratched.



One day I'll finish the rest of it....

Work-in-progress, scratchbuilt cigar factory for Craig Bisgeier's Housatonic RR (1890s.) Still to be built, the mansard roof.

The foundation is Monster Modelworks laser-cut (into basswood) stone, with specially cut pieces for the buttresses. The walls are Mt Albert clapboard. Custom decals for the signs printed on my color laser. Weathering mostly done with Pan Pastels.

John: This is not the Campbell kit, it appears to be a scratchbuilt lumber yard from a plan in Model Railroader. I built one myself.

This is the Campbell kit, much modified:

Bob, you are all too kind. My lumber yard is the Campbell kit. Your are referring to the
September 1976 issue of MR where Dave Busch scratch built his beautiful Wyman Lumber. I
believe Campbell used his build as a reference point for their kit. I used one of his signs,
that may have thrown you off.
