Wow.
Lots of neat stuff since the last time I was here.
Dave - That little loco is the greatest. Superb weathering...just the right look;
Doug - Beautiful buildings; impressive detail;
Cody - Sorry to hear about you loss. That is (was) a well done piece of work.

Here's my contribution for the day. The four walls of the Rainbow Motel office are now in place, including all the windows, the heater (with baseboard mouse hole beside it and mouse trap on top of it) and the image of the front counter that was in place before the floor was tiled. Doors are next, then it's on to the roof and exterior siding.





(Sorry for the dark photo)...



Thanks for lookin'

Ken Hamilton

Ken,
Wow! Those photos look the the real thing. Hard to believe it's a model.

Ken,

Nice work. The peeling wallpaper is a great touch. Also love the mouse trap. Its been a little while since I have been in this thread, if you don't mind my asking for a refresher, what scale is this?

Thanks


Thanks,

Ken, from the mouse hole to the mouse trap and peeling wallpaper it's all well executed and creative. Well done.

Don't mind at all! It's 1/2" scale...much easier on the eyes but requires more picky detail (so when you come right down to it I still end up working small anyway)

Yes, I used sheet styrene, styrene profiles and Tichy NBWs. The wheels were cast in resin.

Jens,
That is some pretty impressive modeling--expecially in 1:87! Thanks for the closeup view of the details.

Sorry, Matthew...I should have been more specific. 1/2" scale is 1/24th scale (1/2" = 1'); pretty close to "G" scale RR equipment. Basically, twice as big as 1/48th ("O") scale, so it's much easier to see!
