Hello everyone! After my recent scratch build project, I wanted a much smaller and simple project as a break. Since Walt Gillespie (the owner of Rusty Stumps Scale Models) recovered from his surgery good as new, I'm celebrating his return by building the Browns Bakery in HO, # K4023. A simple and inexpensive kit, ideal for beginners. I'll be following the instructions, no "bashing" and using only the included parts in the box.



The contents including wall and sub wall sheets, 3D printed resin castings, assembly manual, wall signs, roof paper, acetate, and strip wood. Packing list for parts too.



The mostly 3D printed resin details bag contents



Walls painted, and paired with their sub walls, which will be glued together to form a strong wall "sandwich". Stripwood for trim, windows and doors are painted.



In most Rusty Stumps kits- walls are built up with a 1/32" birch sub wall and a finished 1/16" basswood outer wall. I built a jig to align the two- then removed the adhesive and set them down in place. The tabs and slots are on the subwalls. Window holes must be exactly centered over each other..



After painting and removing a few doors from their 1/64" RCboard carrier, the window acetate is attached onto the back of the window and door sheet in one piece..



I installed the windows and doors on the back, front and side walls. They are trimmed out on 3 or 4 sides with 2 x 6 stripwood.



The bay window on the 2nd story of the front wall is in 3 pieces, also built up. On these walls the window opening must be perfectly matched. To align them properly, I simply glued a block of balsa the exact dimensions of the window opening onto this piece of card, and set the wall down over it.



I am prepping the roof paper sheet by cutting it into 3 sections, which has a nice "cloth" texture on one side. Their sitting next to the white 1/16" Strathmore roof card.



Till next time....starting the bay window...

Off to a good start, Carl. I love the way Walt engineers his kits.

Carl,

Great beginning! No changes, huh? The Kitbuilding Integrity Police will be watching.

Carl always a pleasure following one of your builds.

Simple or complicated I'm sure you will do your magic once again!

First assembly of the bay windows. Individual sashes have been installed. Top and bottom frames support the 3 walls in place.



Glued up to dry.



The roof of the bay window is made up of 4 support pieces and 3 separate roof panels.



RSSM supplies a template cut out for the roof tarpaper over the bay window.



Roof attached with 2 x 6 trim out on the corners.



The instructions state if you wish, you could use 2 x4 (instead of 2x6) for window trim. I liked that idea, so I lined the windows with it.



The left outer wall and 2nd floor were glued together first. The back wall and the 2 interior walls were next. There are tabs and slots for every piece.



Till next time....

Carl,

Looking good. I like your choice of colors and the thinner window trim.

Mike

Carl, I realize you put a lot of work into the windows but IMHO plastic windows do a better job in the small scales. Those wooden frames look clunky to me. A kit manufacturer could include windows and doors from Tichy or Grandt (if they continue) at a nominal cost to seller and the buyer.

On a better note, youíre making this kit look better than it should.
