Structures

This page will be used to show some of the structures I built for my layout. Building structures is the part I like most, I started with some easy kits and will gradually go on to Craftsman kits and eventually scratchbuilding, hopefully evolving enough that I will be aible to scratchbuild the Newton Kansas depot wich will be my centerpiece.

Some of the buildings ready for my layout.
























































This will be the Fox Theatre in Newton, I hope I can find the appropriate doors otherwise I will have to make them.










My first scratchbuild is coming along nicely I think, I couldn't find pictures of the Theatre in the year I am building so I took the liberty of detailing the front as I think it might have been.
Ben Hur is from 1959.





















These are Kato facades, with a little bit of work they are easily made into American looking facades.










This is a prefab kit from Woodland Scenics, the only work is painting them, not much fun but with the amount of structures I need for my layout very much needed to have enough diversity on the layout, choice in structures in N-scale is good but not great like in H0-scale.
