Jefferson, CO, 1920s. The depot in the background is a Builders in Scale kit, but the general store, cattle pens, outhouses and ice-cream truck are scratched:





Cheers,
Jeff.

Except for the plaster hull (think Exeter tug boat) and a few fittings, scratch built out of styrene.

Pete, Frank, Ted and Carl. Thank you for your gracious comments. I believe my wording was a bit miss leading. I had an original plaster hull kit of the Exeter, I believe from Crow River, plus an extra hull. The photo below shows my starting point with the bare hull in front and the first step on placing the styrene bulwarks on the extra hull. This turned into a 10 month project what with all the research on the steam boat SS Sabino.

Jeff, that's a beautiful scene. The structures are very well done and the scenery is beautiful.

John, that 10 month effort yielded fantastic results.

Scratchbuilt On30 / HO Engine House and Sheds
I built for my On30 Critter Engine. HO scale powered track with terminals, to become a starter for a shelf layout.












Comments welcome.

Here's a thread I posted on MRRFORUMS several years ago. We are wondering if it will still be displayed at the upcoming Springfield show as Paul Carver has since passed away.

Thanks Dave. Appreciate that. I am in the process of re-detailing my scratchbuilt version of Sassen Vinegar I did several years ago, and naming it Deep River Vinegar. It didn't have a name previously.
