Howdy folks,

After a long hiatus (2009 - Cats Head Pier), I am finally building again. Train club officer duties "ate my brain". Alas, I am no longer the CFO.

My best buddy, Joe Batson, asked me to build an On30 logging camp kitchen for him. I gladly agreed, especially since he has helped me get excited about On30 and building.

Although I didn't have plans, I assessed all Joe's requirements (after much tooth pulling) . The model is for Choctaw Lumber in Southeastern Oklahoma. You can see his build thread here http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=37549&SearchTerms=Choctaw. After a lot of research, I finally started the build. This thread will summarize the process. It has been years since I scratch built anything, so this has been a treat and a bit of a challenge.

The model is 40' long and 12' wide. The camp cars rest on two massive skids. The materials used were/are St Albert lumber and wooden coffee stirs. Joe asked that the structures be painted oxide red and weathered. The windows and doors are by Rusty Stumps and Tichy. The design is an amalgamation of many kitchen car designs.

Away we go,
Mike Corley

Howdy folks,

Here is a first shot of the sides, ends, and bottom the kitchen car. Construction is from laminated wood and posterboard.

Have fun,
Mike C

Howdy folks,

Here is simple proof that I did brace the interior (just in case someone asks ).

First shot at painting. I'm using craft paints on this model (oxide red, dove gray, burnt sienna, and tan) plus a little burnt sienna and black pigment. From the picture, I think I over did the black, so I'll hit it with at he first four colors again.

The photo distortion is not warping, but a result of using a cell phone camera.

Have fun,
Mike Corley

I also like how the weathering colors came out on your car side Mike.

Howdy folks,

Thanks for the complements and encouragement. After so many years, it keeps me going.

All the main structure is painted, aged, and ready for assembly.

Happy rails,
Mike Corley

Hey Mike- looks very good.

Is there a prototype picture you could post that is similar to your final design?

Howdy folks,

Carl, I combined so many images to come up with this design, that I don't have one single. I'll post the images that gave me the inspiration for the design.

Have fun,
mike corley
