Hey guys been doing some experimentation with spackle for stucco style buildings. Some of you might recognize this as being a drawing from Tom Yorke's Frijole Flats sketchbook (with a little bit of customization). Here's what I've got after this weekend...



It has a 3/16 foamcore sub-structure and is covered with about 3-4 layers of spackle then painted with stain and acrylics. If you're interested more in the construction I took step-by-step pictures which are on my blog. http://somerailroad.blogspot.com/2011/03/bmrc-el-gato-negro-black-cat-billiards.html

     Looking good. That process looks like it ought to be perfect. Sure opens up a lot of interesting options. Went to your sight and the other shots look good.

Man, that's some great looking stucco! I use the same thing on my junk, spackle on foam board. Works like a charm. Lets see some more..

I was looking for an adobe building just like yours.  Read your blog which helped.  I plan on doing something similar in 1/35 scale except it will be a saloon/cantina.

How about these? They are built with 3/16" & 1/4" foam board with spackle applied like stucco. They were on my Mogollon Railway for some years, I still have the Gila Mining Supply and the Boquillas Monorail office is now a repair shop on the SCPA&M. Also, both are 1:35 scale with Grandt Line 1:48 windows and scratchbuilt doors.

Woodie
