The rain we had yesterday has decided to stick around. I called the golf course and they are closed, so back to the modeling.

After little thought, I decided to make the interior of the garage look more authentic. That meant installing studs on the walls. The stud in HO scale is 1" long by .030 x .040. After much deliberation between me, myself, and I, it was decided that I needed a spacer to control both the space between the studs and to keep them vertical.

This first photo shows what I came up with. I took a tongue depressor and cut a strip 3/16" wide to act as the spacer. The length of the wood turned out to be a great advantage, had I made it the same length as the stud, it would have been very difficult to remove it. Especially when the solvent runs under it and tries to bond it to the walls or the stud itself. You can see the plasticard I have placed in front of the garage. The large sheet acted as a spacer so the wood strip was almost level with the wall, the smaller piece I used as a lever, when I pushed down on the back of the wood strip it would just pop up off the wall.



Here are the studs all finished.





The last photo shows what you can see when the garage is placed on my layout. So based upon that I am very happy that I decided to spend the last two hours trying to focus my eyes to see if I had each stud standing up on it's skinny side. :twisted: Oh, if my eyes were only like they used to be!

Wayne

I bought them Brian! I'm no dummy! :mutley:mutley:mutley

If you go back to the 77th post, you will find one more building that I need to make. I completely overlooked it myself. It's the house for the family dog "Rex" a yellow lab. Can't leave him homeless.

John B.
Thank You, I know how hard it is to come up with words on here, especially when someone (like me) posts two or three times a day! What can I say, it's raining outside!!!!!






That last picture looks like the roof is the right color. Must be the light coming in from the window, because it's not painted yet. The sheet styrene color is actually gray.

Time for a snack and some rest.

Wayne

Another triumph on the way, Wayne.  Can't wait to see how you paint the inside!

Thank You Everyone for your comments. I knew when I started this hobby that I would enjoy building these things. With all of you guys out there it makes it all the more enjoyable.

This photo will help me in determining exactly what I need to finish inside the garage when viewed on the layout.



You can also see that I have placed the wood stove's chimney on the roof of the garage.

Don't ask me why I'm even showing you these pictures, their too small to even see!!!! Or maybe it was the Dog House that was too small to see!. All I really know is: I'm Glad I'm Not Building This Layout In N Scale!!!!!





It even fits inside the Outhouse! If I set it on my thumb nail, I can see the nail all around it.

I'm sure glad the kids didn't have a pet hamster! :mutley:mutley:mutley

I have re-painted this garage roof three times to get this far. I paint it, then apply a black wash, and I don't like it. So I re-paint and try again. The whole problem is the shingles are two tone, light green and green. After the third try, I am, I think, as satisfied as I can be, without shipping it over seas to MikeC, to get it fixed! :cool wink





I can see how my abilities have improved since my first project. I seem to be better able to make metal look rusty and things like that. I suppose I still have a long way to go, or maybe I should say, I still have lots of room for improvement, but for right now, I elated with how this looks.

I still want to apply some oil stains on the garage floor (any hints on how to do that MikeC?) and the white walls need a black wash, but the roof is done. The window glazing is not yet in either.

While painting the dog house, I'm quite sure that more paint ended up on my fingers than was applied to the dog house! :mutley

That looks good, Wayne.  To take away that new addition look, maybe a light dusting of grey powdered pastel?  Spray with hairspray and dust on with a makeup brush.  I've still got a long way to go with weathering, but the tips I got from Mike with the pastels have really helped me.

Looks great, Wayne. You've done another top job!

I think Max's suggestion of grey pastel dust would work very well. The beauty of pastels is they don't do any real damage. I often find they adhere well enough to painted surfaces without any spraying. I guess it depends how much the building gets handled.
Just a hint of blue would, I think, help the roof after comparing it with the photo on page 4. Faint blue would actually suggest the colour being influenced by the sky, which tends to mask the actual local colour, and it would take away the new look. You can get pastels in so many shades and tints. You should be able to get a very pale greyish blue.
For oil stains I'd try a small dab of black acrylic straight from the tube, let it sit for maybe 20 secs and then blot it back without smearing it using soft kleenex tissue or paper towel. If you're working on white styrene you should end up with a grey but not too black stain. I just tried that and it worked fine. I dabbed on a small amount of paint using some soft paper towel twisted into a point, and some of the same paper towel as blotting paper.
Runny paint didn't work out well [for me]


Just my thoughts on things. With so much talent on this forum I'm sure there will be others who can suggest things.

Mike

I got to tinkering around here this afternoon and decided to try and make an air compressor for the garage. I didn't have the right materials, but what the heck, I'll try it anyway.

I used a 1/4" dowel rod for the tank, and after I sanded the ends round I should have put it under a microscope. It now looks rather fuzzy in the pictures. Believe it or not but in reality I can't see the rough surface.

For what it's worth here is my first attempt at building something that is not a building.





I'll just make sure I don't put a light in the garage! :pedal

Wayne
