Hi all today I started to scratch built a model call McKinnon`s garage was built by Laurie Green .Here at MODEL RAILROADING with LAURIE it a will build model and work with many era .here what I did so far it will be full frame and board by board
HI and thank i will be oil staining then with air brush.Also did u see my post on stoneycreek WILLS Saddlery & Leather GoodsVery neatly done; especially at the angled top joints where the stud comes up against the top piece on the gable. It is not easy to get one of those that neat, much less all of them.
are you going to stain or paint them?
Thank i use light gray sealer primer first then the stain and once dry i use aol/ink washOil stains do a great job, but I'm too sloppy with glue to get good results unless I pre stain the wood. I have enough trouble cutting enough of the wood to size on my little table saw, in resent years I have got lazy, built up the frame walls, and then spray paint them lightly to get the color I want. Not as pure as pre staining, but much faster, and I get ok results.
that looks really good, It has been 35 years since I have done individual wood shingles on a framed up roof, what fun,
for photography, try getting a couple white , and a couple black sheets of foam core, then you can block out distracting backgrounds and show off your excellent workmanship better.
Once again, thank you for sharing. This stuff is so much fun lets hope we can get more folks to try it.
