Brian’s been back in touch. If you missed his last post, it’s here.
Here is a reply to some of the questions asked.
Hi guys, the material used for the engine house is Northeastern scale scribed siding from the USA.
I always have sheets of it as well as stripwood handy for scratch built projects. 95% of my buildings are of wood design because of the era (1930s) as well as area modelled.
Answer to the question of how I get square corners at the window edges, simple, I mark the outline in pencil and then use a sharp hobby knife with a number 11 blade and work from both sides until it falls out and leaves perfectly square corners.
I have never used “foamcore” as it is too thick and does not help when doing interior detailing.
