Hello, here are two kits from , nomen est omen, Wild West Scale Model Builders.
First the "Kokomo House" This really exists in kokomo, Colorado, until the early 20th Century Years. Once it was a simple Log Cabin, around 1890-1900 the owner added a new front and a Extension out of planed boards. I have 2 "Books" with Scale plans, "Structures of the West" from Joseph Crea and "Modelling the West" fromCarstens Publications, its very accurate to them.
First two Pics on a exhibition Side by Side with the already posted Poolhall.

The Shingles are Printed and Lasercut Paper, a bit Weathering to follow

Image

Second Structure is the Bakery, the Post/Holes on the Walkway for the Porch look a bit strange, would them remove when it goes on a Diorama somewhere in the Future. Also the Decal tends to Silvering, maybe i make this new.

2 more to show....first is Durango press "Newspaper Office" Funny little Kit. And also based on a real House.

Image

Image

Image

I added, as on all other Kits that i show in this Thread, some slight Damage Nailholes. This i make with a Rivet Wheel for tanks anf Aircrafts. This little Tool comes with 3 different Blades, so i can adjust the desired Holes on the Planksize. Also is here is good to see how the Oilpenciltechnic comes out,you can colorize each Planl indiviually.

And the last one for now, Classic Miniatures- "Montezuma Post Office" . A real Craftmens Kit, working with a Plan like an Architect so you have to Cut all parts to Size, Cut out all Door and Windowopenings and so on. And for the Roof you get some rolled "Corrugated Iron"
On this Build, only the Door and frames are Painted, the Walls should look like naturally weathered Wood. It was a common Practice to do this in the old West, sometimes only the false fronts were painted or only the Doors.

Image

Image

All cut, Nailholes and Damages added.

Image

Image

Coloring is the real Fun part on this Wood Buildingings.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And the "Fun" part the individually cut to Fit Board'n Batten Parts......

Image

Image

Image

Image

Thats it for now, iam goin' back to the mille Miglia Dio ;-)

Hello Mates,
