Hi all,  

Just wanted to go through the building of this great kit...
seen a few peoples variations on this and here's my version...  

I like the footprint and it works well with my layout concept;
Backwoods 30-40's narrow gauge line somewhere in the Pacific NW...  

Anyway... box shot... old and decrepit.
Bit like some of us I suspect.

So I love adding nail holes and trying to be logical about where nailing would be with stud layout.

And here's the first walls, plus they want you to add colored card stock as wallpaper,
so I added that with Aileens clear tacky glue.

Even with scale 2x4's this all seems to be ripe for warping...oh boy.
I like the look though.

I cut out all the templates and followed the plan pretty accurately...
transfering stud and plate lines by measuring.

Slow but it works and didn't want to leave transfer paper color lines,
because I think this will all be stained and then dirtied up with alcohol and ink...

So next I put together the base, which was just pressed heavy paper.

Not really very detailed,
but most of it is covered if I follow the lay of the land they show,
so I used it.

Re-inforced the hell out of it just in case... kinda overkill   :Crazy:
