Glen, a couple of really nice projects. What natural material are your logs made from? Pat

LOL, Those are the remains of my neighbour's Christmas tree from 3 years ago. I'd chop my own up except we have an artificial tree!

I originally hoped to put this into the fall-into-winter challenge, but I ran into some problems registering for the forum. I did finish it in time, however.

The model represents the Tyne Woody cabin in HO scale. The plans were obtained online from the Library of Congress' American Memory Project, located here:
http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=hhsheet&fileName=nc/nc0200/nc0253/sheet/browse.db&action=browse&recNum=0&title2=Tyne%20Woody%20House,%20Cataloochee,%20Haywood%20County,%20NC&displayType=1&maxCols=2&itemLink=D?hh:4:./temp/~ammem_ziUq::@@@mdb=gottscho,hh,cmns,alad,ncpsbib,gmd,pan,detr,horyd



I constructed it from scratch using balsa "hewn logs," a little Northeastern dimensional lumber, and shake roofing from Rusty Stumps. The lumber and shakes were treated with alcohol-ink stains. The chimneys were made from Durham's water putty that I cast into rough-shaped blanks using simple molds I made from OJ cartons and masking tape. After the putty set, I carved the chimneys into final shape and painted them with craft acrylics.

Glen, is that a .308 boiler on your pile driver?

Nice little building, Oliver. It's a pity you couldn't post it in time for the challenge, but it has to be noticed that you've successfully won another challenge, the 'first photo posting' on the forum. Looking forward to see more of your work. This putty chimney looks very nice.

It is a shell used on the boiler but I can't remember the caliber. You're probably more aware of the size than I am. The sawmill has a simular boiler setup.
The whole buildup on the sawmill can be seen here:

really nice cabin BTW.

Hello everyone, It has been a while since I have posted anything but here is a scratch built O Scale house I have been working on recently. It is meant to suit my Australian Britannia Creek layout. Made from basswood. The windows and doors are either Tichy or Rusty Stumps and the stair stringers are also from Rusty, along with most of the basswood. Thanks to Bill Black for the foliage and to Bill, Mario and Graham for encouragement and ideas.

Looks great Barry, I really like the way the structure sits on the terrain and the slats around the base, a most interesting and unusual (modeled) setting, very nice structure.

Very nice building, Barry. I like this very interesting wooden "foundation" on the hillside.

Thanks kindly Bruce, Karl and Frédéric. The wooden slats on the base are quite typical on timber houses of the area and period.

Great to see you back Barry, I miss the color and design of your layout/structures, do you have any updated pictures of your layout?

As for this structure, I love it, simple yet interesting, next time take some WIP pictures please.

Thank you very much Nelson. I'll do some WIP photos for my next building. As for the layout, I'm re-working a section to make room for buildings.
