Here is a new building. Lets see some photos if you are using any of these background buildings.
Not quite there yet, but definitely plan on using them when I get to that point with my layout. Thanks for posting.
Also great stuff, Tom. Keep it up! My only suggestion is to perhaps make some with fewer signs on them, or perhaps with the signs on the side so they can be added (maybe as a layer on top, for a little more depth). This would certainly make me much more likely to be able to use them as-is on my proposed layout. Nevertheless, I'll probably be using some of them as a backdrop for some dioramas I'm going to make. :thumbs_up:
Yes, definitely thanks for posting, Tom. I'm not yet ready for backdrop flats, but when I get there, I'll definitely be using a number of these, probably altering slightly to suit my taste and purpose. Signs are not an issue- they can be changed to whatever is needed. I'll also likely change some of the rollup doors to older swinging and sliding types, copying and pasting from one structure to another, will definitely post some photos when I get there.
This is an O Scale Yard Shed - from the Freebie page at Clever Models. The platform is Basswood
Very nice! I love the Clever Models kits and you did a great job with that base, too. I've got their freebie for N-scale that's "on deck" to be built soon. I built the freebie from Evan Designs and was very impressed with the outcome. And I even used one of the signs that TomKat posted in the other thread, too. Here's some of my paper models:
Water tank (to be mounted on top of an upcoming paper model warehouse project, mockup shown below) made of cardstock, match sticks and some basswood crossmembers.
And here it is after weathering the legs:
And these are also cardstock models (the Evan Designs freebie on the right, and a model of my own design on the left):
I also designed and built this cardstock kit of the W&OD Herndon Depot (this is my first test build).
