Hey Pat, that's OK, there is just too much to follow sometimes on these forums, it's easy to miss something.

Beautiful cab forward Wallace, Are you still scratch building locos?

Well, seeing as I'm relatively new here, plus the fact that I just found this thread, I thought I show you something I scratch built years ago in N scale. This is a model of a company store for my Beaver Creek Logging Company. The plans was taken from a series of articles that ran many years ago in RMC. The building is entirely scratch built using styrene except for the details and windows. The interior is detailed and lighted.

Here is the front of the building




Track Side showing the loading dock




The other side of the building showing the staircase up to the second floor.



And last but not least, the rear of the building

Wallace, could you perhaps point out exactly what this is and how you accomplished it? I have enough trouble scratching a building I don't think I'll be trying to build locos anytime soon just like to educate myself. Thanks and any other little tidbits of explination would be more than welcome. Pat

Ron, that's a very impressive looking structure. It's hard to imagine interior detailing in N scale.

Nice scratch builds David. I especially like the G. Willikers, it's one of my favorites! Keep the pics coming. By the way, I tried to check your album a while back as posted in FSM Yahoo group, and couldn't find anything. But here's perfect too!!

Ron : a very beautiful structure, and in N scale! Hat's off.

David : very succesfull dioramas. The fine, crowded ambience of FSM kits is all here.

Thanks for sharing.
