Thanks, Frederic!

Here's what it's forerunner looked like. I sold out of these little kits quite a few years ago, unfortunately, but I am considering getting my entire line back into production later this year.



In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

I just finished the fourth structure in my "Grandchild Series". This scratchbuild is named after grandson Nick. The build is documented in this thread: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=28344&whichpage=1

This is a very impressive, and beautifully built, structure, Bruce. And I love your concept of a "Grandchild series".

My turn: some stuff I've been scratch building, for my layout, The Neo Canaan R.R., starting with an abandoned building shell:





Here's one house I did from scratch:




......and a Sinclair gas station:






.....as well as an ice machine dispenser








All were built out of leftover scraps that I had years ago, so I tossed it all together with glue, paint and ingenuity Amazing whbat you can do with styrene; the gas station is under construction but i hope to finish it.
More coming soon.

Those were done in 2008 or 2009.

I seem not to have contributed anything to this thread in a couple of years(!), so here's an addition. It's a scratchbuilt structure based roughly in part on the building FSM offered under the title of "Seafood Emporium" a number of years ago...with some liberties taken and now employed well away from blue water as a plumbing supply company.

This is one of my favorite FSM designs, John. Your transform of this seafront building into a "dry" industry (if I can say that plumbing is dry ) is very interesting.

Hope these pics come in, first try using my webcam since I don't have a digital camera.This is a scratchbuilt station, Vancleave Station, named after the town I used to live in. All balsa, most of the boards were done by scribing the wood with a soft pencil before painting. The shingles are fine sandpaper cut into strips and tabbed. The windows, doors and railings are all hand made in balsa. I used super glue which worked well and infused into the wood and strengthened the model. It is painted with pactra paint if I remember correctly (its been awhile). The coke machine is hand made using Sculpey, and the schedule board is an actual photo of an L&N board at a local station that I reduced on a photocopy machine. The interior has benches and a counter that can't be seen here, I made provision to be able to insert a light and wanted some interior detail to show. The station sign used to have a light overhanging each side until it got a book dropped on it. I know it's not much but its a start. I found out yesterday what A&I wash was and picked up some alchol and ink today. Can't wait to try it.

This is my latest structure. I wanted a church for my narrow gauge module Salina.

Good looking little church, Wolfgang. I like the way itís been placed on the hillside with the nice retaining wall and steps and not on flat ground.

You see my module Silver Creek. Trestle, bridge and turnout are scratch built.
