A little structure combo...
« on: July 16, 2017, 08:26:53 PM »
I am a retired commercial photographer with a bad HO-scale MRR habit.  :D
I've been around awhile, though not here. I have created many structures for layout builders.
So just to give you an idea of what I've been up to lately here's a little piece I've been working on...

rich,
         I like the direction the creative direction you're going! I can see a little George and a little Doug in there, but it's got you, written all over it.  Cool. Thanx Thom...

Welcome aboard Rich, and a very cool structure indeed.  Love the lines and the weathering.  Look forward to see the details, etc. as you make this really come to life.
Cheers,

Thanks Thom. If you've ever built one of George's kits this little guy would be easy to reproduce.

Paul you are correct. This structure needs the details. Unfortunately that's a ways off. I started this before working on the backdrop and background buildings so it will be  awhile before it gets installed on the layout.

Thanks for the welcome John. I've been pawing through your FS&M photos for ideas.   ::)

Bob the trio will fit in a tight spot between the main line and a siding. It's about 5"x9". And yes it grew up just as you described.  8)

And thanks for the kudos folks. I've seen some excellent work from all of you.

Hi Rich:

That's pretty cool. Just needs a few signs. Colors and weathering are great.

Rich, a nice set of buildings. It sorta reminds me of a dock and shack along a lazy river in Florida it the white building was elevated to the height of the dock deck. Just a thought.

Thanks for the comments Gregory & Donato.

Nice meeting you (and Frank) at Georges a few weeks ago. I do have a hanging sign on the bench but it does need more.

Marty As I mentioned earlier this little combo is designed and built to fit in a tight spot between the main line and a siding.

Thanks for the interest folks.
