    Here's a couple of pics of my next scratchbash project.
    Its the station here in my home town of Torrington Ct. Started with some DPM wall sections, that were diced and spliced. The door was scratch built from Evergreen strips. The patchwork color on the wall are because I used some walls from buildings that were"torn down".

    Close-up of the door.
    I'm only guessing at what the doors looked like(Everything is boarded up on the real station),cause I haven't found any pictures from the past.

    It's going to be a beaut Ed. Imagination plays a big role when you can't get to see the inside. I am sure you will find a way to do it.

    Looks like you are off to great start. I like the doors. They look like they belong there.

    Yep those doors are great Ed, they look really old-fashioned. Smart idea to make your own, it gives the building some very unique character.

    cheers

    Thanks everyone.
    Now the only problem is getting them all to look the same.

    Wow!
    That's some really nice modeling, Ed!
    It's great when you can put together sime odds & ends, & some pieces from the scrap box, & come up with a nice model like that!

    Grand Entrance

    Here's a pic of the street side entrance.
    The window is from DPM powerhouse modualar wall, the doors are scratchbuilt. Again just a guess at what they look like.
