Well, I am very pleased to have received so many Moosies. I am glad now that I took a little extra time on the build. That is quite an honor. I need to get busy now and design and build a stable for them! I have only ever seen one moose and remember that he was huge. But five of them? This may turn out to be a monumental scratch build :shocked:

Thanks for all of the great comments. Lee, this is O scale. I think Marcel's original shed was 1:26. The vines were made from two different products. The rear vine on the shed is from something new to me.



I found it at the Scenic Express booth at a show last week. It reminds me of those pot topper things you buy for houseplants, but this stuff is all synthetic, so there's no mess like with the toppers. I looked at the Scenic Express site, and it lists the product's availability as April 17. I looked on the Creative Accents site but did not see it listed. But they did have Kreative Krinkles which I am hoping is the leafy stuff that is glued onto these things. If it is, I think it will be great for tree leaves. I order a couple of colors. It comes in 11 colors, so they must be using it on the vines they make.

The front vine is made from English Ivy Foliage by miniNatur. Scenic Express has that too. It was a lot harder to make look real, probably because I didn't follow their directions and just cut some and paste it on. As you can see from the picture, I teased it apart and that spaced out the nice, little ivy leaves and knocked a lot of them off. I glued 40-50 leaves on after I had glued the vine on the building. It still looks like anemic ivy to me, but I doubt I'll ever glue more leaves on.



George, after watching your progress on your pizza layout, I have a feeling it's not going to take you long to learn to build nice models.

Thanks again.

Cor, I have pics of some of my builds on Flickr. I have set that as my homepage. I also added a link to them in my signature line. Sometimes there are in progress pictures there of things I am working on so my friends can look and give advice.

I switched to O from HO about four years ago. I enjoyed building in HO but as I grew older, I found it was more satisfying working in a larger scale.

Great little structure,
thats the kind of inspiration
I need to start on small subjects,
I once thought about using water
colors, I'll have to try that now.
