They might be located in the yard area of a railroad, sit behind a factory or other commercial establishment, or reside in someone's backyard. While not the largest structures on a layout, they well might be the most numerous. They are the little shacks, sheds and shanties that are once againthe topic of this month's Photo Gallery.

These little structures are fun to make, and are a great subject for your first scratchbuilding venture. Even if most of your structures are well maintained, you can fulfill your 'grungy' urges on these little guys. One thing is for sure. No matter how cramped you are for space, there is always room for a little shed, shack, or shanty.

It has been a few years since we have devoted a Gallery Theme to these little structures, so hopefully we have collected many pictures in the interim.

As usual, both model and prototype photos are welcome.

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.

The broadcast facility for the old Scotty Mason podcast show:

Jimmy Deignan complained that his wasn't ADA compliant, so I redid his, splicing two together to create a longer structure, plus a wider door.

Tichy outhouses. For the weathered wood, I started with a light grey, and then did washes of raw umber and raw sienna, finishing with a beigy color. I used more of the mid brown on the shingle roof to give them a slightly different look.

Here's a diorama with three sheds each made of a different material. The left one is wood, the middle card stock and the right, styrene. They are now on the club layout.

A sentimental favorite is my home in 1946.

My mom, dad, sister and I shared space in this 9 foot wide, 20 foot long shack that now serves as a chicken coup in Armona, California.

Some may call it a "shack". Then again, some call it "home"..
