First someone asks how Shamus and the others scratch build structures. Then someone starts collecting "scratchbuild" structure plans. Then Shamus posts structures that are magnificent as well as a post to Luis with a neat little N-Scale Depot. I thought I had my "model railroad experience" all figured out. Build the layout, buy ready built or DPM structures, assemble, paint, etc. then sit back and enjoy running the trains and admiring the super stuff that you guys with all the talent post in the Gauge. I just had to try that depot, if for no other reason to get "scratchbuilding" out of my system. I printed the plan that Shamus posted, Glued it on the cardboard from a photo paper package and carefully cut it out using only 2 Xacto blades, painted it with my acrylic artist colors and said "Hmmm, that wasn't so hard". Now I am in deep stuff with the wife because I said the last 2-8-0 was the end of spending for the railroad. Now I need some styrene, some wood strips to make a "wooded" depot, miter box, more room..... I am posting a couple of pictures of the rascal that has caused this commotion. Granted it is NOT a Shamus quality product (remember it is cardbord) but with some work on my part and a bit more experience I could get to like this part of the hobby. I sure am glad that I found this place.
