    All sorts of proto Houses, buildings ect.

    I was out and about today looking for old houses that one could model.
    Also if you have any old buildings in your area we would like a pic of them please.
    Not only the building but also the trees and garden.
    Cheers.
    Here is the first.

    Hi Chris, I've always heard it referred to as gingerbread, it may have other names as well.

    Neat thread idea

    Hi Chris - I've always called it gingerbread as well. Here's a shot I took on my way home from Kincardine ON last weekend. It's a farmhouse. I didn't bother with a shot of the front because it's exactly a model put out by Sylvan Scale Models of a gothic style farmhouse. This is the side view, showing the add-on to the basic kit.

    cheers

    Thanks Gary and Val.
    There are a few older farm houses and residential, around me, and thats what made think about the add-ons and different types, for our city/ country models.
    And there are a lot out there, I will get a few more this week.;)

    Those are very nice Chris. The last shot really shows all the wildflowers growing alongside the driveway. Cool!
    I was documenting some barns last weekend too. Here's one of them. Unfortunately it was very foggy when I took this shot.

    cheers

    Chris,

    When I get brave enough to start a scratchbuilt house, I'll remember to find this thread. For some reason, ever since I got into modeling, I don't look a things like I used to. I can't believe how much stuff I missed before that....

    Great pics,

    Don
