I have been dying to build something with scrap 1" foam board and scrap sheets of styrene or pvc ( thrown out from the sign business next to my shop). I really wanted to model the Washington St. station of the former Cumberland Valley RR located in my town(m-burg PA) now owned by NS. It’s a stick style structure and being that I spent the last 12 years rehabing a stick style home, it’s one of my favorite styles of Victorian architecture. I have lots of wookworking equipt. but not lots of time and foam just seemed to be the answer for me. I have about 15hrs into it. Would have been less but I cut all of my stick work/trim and windows/doors from a single sheet. It’s not finished yet and I need to pin stripe my 9 over 9 windows,cover the doors with vinyl and make a hardiplank sub base for weight and stability. Not to mention finish painting(you get a bit shaky after a couple beers) . However I thought I would post and walk the gauntlet. Please go easy on me as this is my first scratchbuild to scale (1/2 scale or 1:24). I was rather pleased with the results and cannot wait to finish it and stick it on the line this spring. This is what I modeled
Ok …Since Photobucket is dead and I’m not sure how to respond what was posted I just give a photo dump of the model back in the day in the hood when it was built but remember it still exists!
