      I use sawdust + water / wood glue (50/50) + acrylic paint. The hues are just basic fonts for now

      I propose you the beginning of a small construction of an old west station to install it later on my layout.

      The frames are in samba of 9x9, the vertical and the blades are in balsa of 1mm, the frames of door and window in balsa of 2.

      Hello everyone
      After spending a good fortnight in the masonry, I resume my modeling activities.
      Having bought ink cartridges (more expensive than my printer) I made signs for my station.

      Here is what it gives

          You might take some consolation in knowing, monsieur, that you are not alone in France; over here in America also those freaking printer cartridges can cost more than the damn printer. At least it makes me feel better anyway that things are the same over there.   How do you say "What a racket!" in French?

       

         This is a great scratchbuild Jean-Gilles, and the coloring of the wood and the signs came out perfect. Nice job.

      Hello to you
      I continue to do my signs.
      I wanted to print upside down and apply to the wood, but that was not a success, I went back to print
      Some pictures

      I had forgotten an important detail for my station: the train schedule.
       The problem will be fixed (2.2mmx1.6mm)

      thank you
      The sheriff (my girlfriend), fearing to see the evildoers fleeing or entering through the window, asked the blacksmith (myself) to make bars for him.

      What was done quickly (well almost ...)

      Hello everyone

      Thank you Dennis
      I started a galley that I do not advise nervous or in a hurry.
      I started building a log trapper's cabin. I'm out of wood,  That's where I am

      The roof is finished and received its first paint

       


      Assembly of a window and passage of a white / gray on the face of the logs

       

      and then .... we could add a fireplace!

       

      and then .... and then it's not over!

      That looks great.  Did you distress the logs or did they come that way?  What is the chimney and block foundation made of?
