As a further experiment with this "scratch building" part of the hobby I thought that I would try to do a structure based on a picture. This is a rough representation of the "Berghoff Brewery", A PM kit that I found in the Walthers catalog. My measurement reference is the "shamus structure' that I did before. This took about 4 evenings to plan, draw cut and glue but I think I am beginning to like it. I am using the cardboard mockup to position structures and scenery as I get ready to add the plaster & foam to the layout. I am hoping for a "Scratchbuilding supply train" to arrive under the tree this year with the stripwood, windows, doors, etc., so I can do this stuff for real.
