Barnstead Lumber Scratch build
« on: October 11, 2017, 02:02:04 PM »
So the last two mystery builds, someone guessed it in under an hour. I put up pics of the cut walls, and could not stump you all. This time I have made a copy of one of the doors used in the kit. I am hoping this might take a little longer. I used the old school method of stacking the layers of wood to build this. (been reading some old 50's MR lately, and this was the only way they knew how to do it). Let the guessing begin........

I think Tommy has one on his workbench. ;)  Some of the techniques from the 50's really do look good.

John,
 So that might explain it. I just thought some modelers have every aspect of kits cataloged in their heads....It is amazing some of the techniques that back in the 40s-60s what modelers did to create what we sometimes take for simple today.

Howdy All,
 Been busy replicating doors for the build. Decided to get them all built at once this time, to get it out of the way. I have all of the walls cut, and started to color them last night. I am also playing around with coloring the stone foundation, as you can see in the last pic. Thanks for taking a look...be back soon....

Just realized a day later I never put nail holes in the freight door on the right....OOPS!
