Nice shed! Does the back wall come off for taking those interior pics?

Ray: This shed was in its own thread recently, with more photos, showing the removable back:

I have scratchbuilt many of my garden railway structures. None would be considered finescale since they sit outside year round 24/7 for the squirrels to eat their nuts on and birds to poop on.
The following are 1/24 scale -

Donovan's Pub (sits in a block with 3 kit structures)-




A little freight and passenger depot -




the Soggy Bottom Coal Co. tipple -




ACME Manufacturing - made from Hardibacker tile board, 3 feet long and also serves as a table -




water tank based on the M&E tank at the Whippany, NJ museum




Silver Spring station base on the interurban station in Winnebago, IL




my last building project was my 7/8's scale (1:13.7) station. It almost 30 inches long and is constructed of real stone, cedar and copper. It weighs about 40 pounds.






My one scratch motive power project is a 7/8n2 rail truck. All scratch except the trucks and the hood which was greatly modified -

Nice looking models, Brian. How long do those structures last, sitting out in the weather?

That's a good question. My oldest buildings are three years old and most are in fine shape. Every spring they get cleaned up, paint touch ups, fresh coats of wood sealer or acrylic clear coat. All are built of heavy duty plastics, foam base with plastic veneers, pressure treated wood or cedar and exterior grade glues. I figure by the time I get all the structures done the older ones will need replacing!

Bob,

I really love this. It's inspiring me to do a shed build.. I am wondering.. what lighting do you use? This is so white I'd almost think it's fluorescent.

Arthur:

Thanks for the comments! I used 500 watt photoflood lights, and set the digital camera white balance for incandescent. I had the lamp pointing almost straight down through the skylights.

If you can wait, my article on making the speeder shed is supposed to be in the 2011 On30 Annual.

Here is my latest, an old livery stable for the town of Camp Douglas. I know it is not in the same league as the above photo, but here it is anyway.

I had the need for a power pole/street lamp to be used on the lot of my little trucking company. So I embarked upon this little scratch build. I am pretty happy with it.
Remembering that when I was a kid most of the poles had climbing lugs on them that started about 7 ft up, I felt this a much needed detail.
I didn't think about taking progress pics until time for paint. But it started out as 3v light bulb, some sprue, a piece of brass tubing, some modeling putty, a cross bar from a plastic power pole and some "little tiny" pieces of wire.


It works, complete with a blue jay taking a rest.



This is it in place...



It was fun but took about 4 hours over a couple of nights so, I don't think I'll be mass producing them anytime soon.

Here's a little station that evolved upwards from a small freight station kit that I was using for doing hands-on clinics at conventions, except that this one is all board by board and features an interior and lighting.


This is the Markes Station that will eventually find a home on my layout.....

This is a finely detailed model, Martin, with a nice and interesting interior.
