A short and sweet post today.
I was going to take down the ‘silly sale bundle deal‘ on the print out scenery yesterday.
(I ran the sale to help with the competition)
But then these turned up from Dana and John:
…some pictures of over 25 models I have built using your stock designs and changes and additional structures I added to make my western 1880 town and logging mill and farm land….over the past six months,
Dana Green, Maine USA”
I started on the challenge project yesterday…
This is a little freight shed… O scale…
My current progress..
What you see here was “borrowed” from your covered bridge kit, your wood tunnel kit, the barn kit and a little scratch work of my own for the top of the platform… Yes, it is all card.
I did go a little crazy and detail the interior a bit…
It needs a roof…

Both Dana’s and John’s buildings are all made up by scratch building from the print out scenery silly sale bundle deal.
And just to be clear, today is the last day for this offer. Here’s why I ran it:
I thought seeing as we are all couped up for the next month or so, we all need something to get our teeth in to.
So I’m running a scratch building competition to see what you lovely lot can come up with.
The winner gets $140 -all thanks to the fabulous generousity of Ron and Rich.
The winner will be decided by your votes.
The winning buliding will be available to download for free to anyone and everybody.
Entries to be in by 16th April. You can enter as many buildings as you like.
There is also a second and third prize now (haven’t thought of a prize yet though).
So there you go.
Want to join in the fun?
All the prints are HO scale.
Reduce by 54% for N scale.
Increase by 143% for O scale.
And here’s where you can grab the silly sale bundle – but only for today.
That’s all for today, folks. Like I said, short and sweet.
A normal service is resumed tomorrow!
Stay safe. Stay busy.
