Brian’s been back in touch with his HOn3 boat house.
But before we start, I know some of you missed yesterday’s post. Here it is.
Now to Brian:
Hope you can use it as you said that you were running a bit thin on articles.
As a follow on of the previous post of the RAM boat suppliers.
I used the same plans of the above scratch built model to make a full size Boat builder building with full interior, lights and people working around it.
Below, again using photostat copies of the plan, cut out and taped together to get the size of it and position on the layout.
The wood siding cut according to the paper templates.
The side office (plaster) assembled and a base coat of red painted on the exterior.
Here it has been weathered and highlights added.
The building has been painted inside and outside with interior details added.
Folding doors added above the boat ramp.
A view from above showing some of the interior detail as well as the upstairs office.
Lights have been added both inside and outside.
A night photo of the exterior of the boat builder/repair shop.
Another night shot of the fully detailed and lit interior.
The same plans used for two different buildings and in two different size’s around the layouts waterfront.
That’s all for now until my next building project.

A huge big thank you to Brian for sharing what he’s done since his last update.
In fact, his last post gives a really good overview of his layout: HOn3 shelf layout.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And if today is the day you get going on your layout, the Beginner’s Guide is here.

Attention to detail is really of an olympian standard. It won’t be long before models are indistingishable from the real thing!!!! What a standard to aim for, well don.e
Brian…,. Beautiful piece of work.
Nice work! Are the boathouse plans available?
An excellent building! Although if it is possible some details on how you set up your lighting.
Incredible!! If I saw that photo and hadn’t been told it was a model I’d think it was the real deal. I kind of thought there’d be water on the other side. Amazing none the less.
That’s a WOW! Thanks for sharing this experience with us.
Beautiful work there Brian! Looks fantastic!
Creative. Innovative. Real.
Exemplary work. Modelling by the master. Much thanks for the submission.
Big Al- thanks
Your boat house is impressive. I have 2 questions:
1. How did you get the brick impressions on the office?
2. Any tips on how to make the precise cuts/openings for doors and windows?
Really neat, matey!! Arf arf!!
The overall project is simply superb. I was particularly impressed with the PROPORTIONAL lighting! So often the lighting is too bright to be realistic. You have mastered the art.
