I added the shed structure for the grain wharf at Stoneman's Station. The prototype photo shows the inspiration for the model. I used laser cut basswood for the frames and cooking parchment paper for the cloth roofing. I also nearly finished the small shed next to the grain wharf.
The tree next to the sheds is supposed to be a pine. I need to figue out the best way to simulate that small tree. This tree is a stand-in for now. It will go in a different spot later.
|The rafters are laser cut basswood. By using the laser, the miter joints are exact and repeatable.|
|I have two photos of this shed from opposite directions, thus I know they only partially sided the back. Note|
also the vertical siding on the gable and horizontal siding on the rear wall.
|I like how the roof overhangs the tracks slightly. Since the interior of the gable wall will be visible, I scribed |
wood seam lines on the plain back of the Mt Albert siding using a 0.5mm pencil.
|Still lots of details to add including stairs, grain sacks, telegraph lines, crates, hard tack boxes, tents, and people.|
