    I've seen some files with pretty aggressive teeth. I think I've seen some with big enough grooves for O scale siding.

    Fantastic as always Robin. A question: How did you get that texture on the siding? From the pictures it looks like you have both board and batten and wood shingles.

    The walls are made with 1/16th strips of cardboard glued to the base Don. Some vertical some horizontal

    OK, let me see if I got this. You first made a wall out of cardboard from cerial boxes, then glued on more strips of it to simulate the individual wood boards..:cool:

    Thanks

    I heard that they watch the golf channel at our local hospital, it is very therapeutic....... it cures insomnia.

    Robin, your Griswold module is an absolute top notch masterpiece! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    It shows the contrast between the 'upper class' and the 'lowly' side of the RR tracks in a very fascinating way.

    Great modeling, and thanks for sharing it with us!

    WOW Robin. I tried cutting 1/16 " cardboard just to see if I could do it. I ended up with junk.

    Dick,

    Try a thinner card stock like an index card or manila file folder. It may curl a little but it comes out very useable. I also reload the xacto blade frequently.
