Here is a link to my latest build pictures stored on photo bucket of the ROXBURY ROOFING COMPANY.
Its a scratch build in O scale 1/4", starting with a pair of hydrocal plaster Tom Yorke kit end walls.
I imagineered this design and structure from a basic idea to create a building a scale 50 foot long.
Grandt line windows and doors were used along with "clint Crows" builders in scale various roofing materials including his fairly new slate roofing , in lite grey , on rear roof. I also used his venetian blinds in the windows for effect. The corregated and the raised seam are real rusted metal not fake powders.
have you started building something using these walls.
I just obtained a 2002 version of this kit from which those #105 rustic walls came from, which is much more expansive than original 1978 design. Has a deep interlocking stone foundation around the front and one end sits under the tall end wall. The whole thing is meant to be built on a solid hydrocal stone foundation 1/2" thick casting.
Also the new one has 2 steel water water tanks and a trestle crossing in front or rear sitting on concrete piers. A little rubber to make a mold and i can easily expand that trestle to as long as i want over the lower rough ground or stream. ?
Not sure when i will get around to building this one.

This really looks great. I really like the mix of building materials. Great job Mike. Nothing like Yorke castings. I know there are others out there but his pieces really have a character all their own.
