Thanks, again, Ted.

I believe this was my first exercise in using paper, cardstock in this case, for wood siding. The window trim, fish-scale shingles are also cardstock. The chimney is acrylic canvas bricks. Roofing is copier paper. Windows and doors are wood. All mounted on black foamboard.

It's just a heavy stock "paper" used for acrylic painting.




I cut the sheets into strips the height of the bricks them cut the strips to the length of the brick.

This tower is made primarily of shirt cardboard, manila folder, and a "Capucino Coolers" box for the thinner stock. (Thank you, Kristi, for your addiction...I will never run out of this material.) The roof is metal, the little tank plastic, and of course the figures are plastic and metal. The structure plans are from Model Railroader. I based my model on the drawing's dimensions, but took the details from the prototype photos included. A fun structure built in between jobs.

Great work, everyone.

Another cardstock building. Windows, doors, roof trim, deck, cleaning table and bench are wood. And again with the canvas chimney. The roof covering (hardly seen) is tissue tar-paper.

I built this coal shed and fuel tank using strip wood and construction paper roofing, from an article in Model Railroader August 1978, called Caboose servicing facilities.
