This is going to be a scratch build following the RS Laser Kits Scale Saw Filer Shack in HO scale. A little history; This Saw Filer Shack is modeled after one that was used at Manary Logging Co. In Siletz Country Or. It's a scale of 12 by 24-5 ft. All the windows in the front walls were made so you can have them open to any position you like. However, my version, windows will not be able to be opened. The kit has 20 windows that open and close, just in the front wall alone. The picture below shows the kit of an ďOĒ Scale saw filer shack version by RS Laser for viewing.
Continued in the next, and following threads, I will post the progress of my scratch build.

After looking through other builds posted on the internet for measurements, I was able to get enough pictures, and work with the perspective control settings in Photo Shop, to get the proper measurements I needed to come up with some wall and window templates for my build.
Pictured below is the following HO scale shack pictures I used, and manipulated the perspective, to make-up some templates I needed to build my own version. Internet pictures obtained are seen on the left side, and the corrected pictures for my template use, with measurements, on the right side.
Also, there is a set of window templates made-up, for window making jigs.

That's cheating, but I like the idea of borrowing.

Louis, it appears that you will be further sharpening your scratch building skills with another interesting build for us to watch.
Let the fun begin!

Cheating, well I used to have an issue with that, but after Menard's stole my engine house fire build, and made their money off of it. I stopped worrying.

Have fun but would do that to a Foss, FSM or Bar Mills kit if it was still in production?

Sorry Rich, I know how you must feel. I went through that when Menards took a Fire-damaged engine house build I did here on the Forum, and it was published in the Railroad Model Craftsman Magazine in JUNE 2014. After that it turned up in Menards line of structures. My Build pictured below, and Menards below mine. Any resemblance? I will cease and desist with this saw filers shack build.

Lou, it's not cheating, it's reverse engineering.

It's going to be interesting to follow.

Louis , No keep going on it want to see how it turns out. There's lots of stuff on here that others have designed and scratched that would make great kits but would never do myself without asking. Do know some manufactures that feel others designs are fair game, more power to them but not me.

Yes, keep going. You're working in a different scale and will use different materials. If it still bothers you, kit-bash the design.

Like he// you will. Build away my good man.

I copied the entire line of a well known makers wharf scene, a house of ill repute, and several more well known models. It's all in the name of good fun.

You're doing a one-off for yourself. BUT, they went and sold your idea.

UPDATE: This saw filers shack as been a bit of a rollercoaster ride to get off the ground to say the least.
After discussion with Rich from RS Laser, my plan is to continue with this scratch build of mine, and when completed, also construct, and post, a build of his HO scale kit here on this build thread.
When done, I'll have my scratch build placed onto my layout, and have the RS Laser kit mounted onto a set of Logging Disconnect Trucks.
So hopefully I will get your thoughts, and ideas as we go through this construction process. As always, I hope to have you check-in from time to time for the progress of these builds.
