    Really cool! I've thought about this kit for years, I just don't have a place for it yet.

    Finally picked up another somewhat local NE road. Never used Mass Central. The B&M Bluebird scheme is my favorite along w/ the LV Snowbird. 50.00 and cleaning Atlas' coagulated 90 weight out of it, and it runs like a charm!

    I scratched up a little garage to go with my "farm house."










    This will be partially set into a hill, which is why it's got the block wall. The peeling of the concrete on the blocks was kind of a happy accident. My joint-compound skin peeled off with my paint mask, but I decided to go with it.

    the side of the garage with the crumbling over-coat looks like parts of the exterior of my basement wall

    good job.

    only mine isn't falling off nearly as bad

    Very nice work. I really like the aging you applied to the shingles. Nice match to your farmhouse.

    I have the same kit about 80% finished. If I can get it to look half as good as yours I will be happy.
    Excellent work

    That would be a CMW 56 Chebby (classic metal works) for those not in the know.

    I love the rust on that roof, and the knots in the pine boards. And the details are great!. Nice work.

    If you mean CMW doesn’t have them anymore, (at least not that I’ve found) then yes.

    The taillights are a smooth lens and not a bullet shaped lens so it is a “55” not a “56”,,ask me how I know.

    Still amazed at what you did to make the Bachmann farmhouse look like a craftsman kit. Great skills!
