    I’ve begun building a lumber shed for the sawmill area on the MTC layout…
    I’m building it from styrene strip, & I added a couple of old Central Valley ladders to it…

    Here’s what it looks like after some painting & weathering…

    The next step will be to add a corrugated metal roof…

    Drew;
    From the picture, you make your styrene strip look so much like wood, outstanding work. How about the caboose behind the log car, is that scratchbuild with styrene as well?

    Really neat. :thumb: Better get busy before the building inspector gets there. Once you finish, he won't know that it's not been sitting there for at least 50 years. sign1 sign1
