    Very nice! However, I did not see a photo of a finished rocking chair ... I will be patiently waiting photos of the completed house AND the assembled rocking chair...

    Okay let's put the rocking chair together first, I'm glad I have a few fine tweezers, you can see this would be impossible with my fingers.


    First the back of the seat.


    And then somehow I managed to get the sides on too, don't laugh the chair took me more then 15 minutes. You think you have it and there it goes again folding or letting loose, but in the end I do have a sweet rocking chair for on the porch.


    On with the house , put the sides together.


    The instructions don't tell you to glue the little corner bracings a fraction higher so the floor fits into the building, so I cut out little corners off the floor piece, because the bracings were already glued tight.


    Although you can't see it from the outside I put in all the interior floors and walls too.




    Porch , trimmings all in place , quite a nice little house.



    I bought this house and 110 2nd street with an order of 3 each , I don't know if they made a mistake , it says buy 2 for a 50% discount , I got all 3 at 50% discount, 3 for $ 37,50 what a bargain. I you need some nice company houses or just some houses for on your layout get some, it doesn't get much better then this. And no I am not getting paid or anything to say this

    The instructions say there is a decal for the house number, couldn't find it , but no problem, I cut off a tiny piece of the sheets that have the parts numbers lasered on them, 27 was the number I could cut off clean so 27 is the house number.


    There is metal standing edge roof material provided in the kit more then enough for the whole building, I used it for the main roof but decided on tarpaper for the porch and kitchen roof.


    I then placed rafter ends , parts about 2 x 3 mm provided in the kit , it's these details that make a kit like this stand out.


    Chimney and stove pipe in place , walls done with A&I, and pigeons on the roof, yes pigeons also provided in the kit.


    Some more photo's of the finished house ( well almost , I always see little things that still need to be done in these macro photo's )











    This was a fun build , the kit was so much better then the Babe's Diner kit, If I were RLW I wouldn't sell the Babe's Diner until I got the mistakes right , It's not doing their name any good , and people might avoid buying other kits from them , which would be sad , because they are great.

    Oh it's the same company as that diner, weird to see such a difference in quality. Maybe it was one of their first kits while they were still learning. That rocking chair is intense. The roof is very unique although something about it seems over-scale, like they're HO sheets of metal. Anyways, really awesome! Looking forward to seeing more progress on your layout too. Obviously all these buildings will be going on them, but it's always great to see all these little parts finally go on the layout and go from being a cool building to an amazing SCENE.

    My big problem, I love working at my desk just building structures, building my layout is not my strong point, that's why I like the Layout Party's.

    I know what you mean about the scale of the roofing , but it doesn't look like that in real, it's a small house so maybe that's why the panels look a bit large.

    Has anyone ever seen this website http://www.homemadetools.net/site/se...nbouli&Search= , I found it while googling my own nickname, at first glance looks like a very interesting site.

    Just read your whole tread and I have to give you a lot of kudos for your layout work. Being born and raised in Emporia and and for awhile, ran a delivery route from Topeka along 24 hwy through Manhattan and on up through Riley. Your work is OUTSTANDING in capturing the details of these small towns.
    I have friends that have a lot of info and photos of the Santa Fe from KC to Newton and if you need anything like that, let me know and I'll see what I can do for you.

    Oh yea I've eaten at the Hays House several times back in the 60's and 70's as a kid.

    I do like the way you are completing a section and then moving to the next verses doing all the mainline and then going back and doing scenery.

    Thanks Rodney , i'm not exactly protyping the Clay Center Line , but I do want at least one building in each town that is really there and looks the same , and then I just name a few buidlings after real buildings.

    Later on when I get to the Newton part of the layout I'll be sure to remind you of your friends , I already have had so much help from people in Kansas.

    Meanwhile I went on with the Feed and Supply build.
    Bracing needed to prevent wharping , plus it helps to align and glue the corners.


    A nice little jig is provided for the stairs, might be of use with other stairs too.


    Stairs made using the jig , the stairs are great looking , very crisp lasercutting.


    Basic walls assembled.


    My trusty blocks of steel used to hold down roof panels.


    Front view with the roofing paper added.


    Rear view , roof painted black , still wet , hence the glossy finish.

    How does the jig work to make the stairs?

    The cuts hold the stringers in place and the somewhat larger piece stops the stringers from moving , a lot easier to glue treads in place with a jig .

    I've been wanting to do laser cut stairs just like that. I have no problem cutting them, but a lot of problems assembling them. The two I tried just ended up in the garbage.

    Worked on my workbench today , created a spot for my monitor/tv right in front of me and some more drawers for small things around it. This way I can do some modeling while at the sametime doing some gaming and chatting and forum posting, I just hope this leads to more modeling getting done.

    I play Goodgame Empire online , there is lots of time when you have nothing to do but have to stay alert to harvest goods , sometimes an hour can pass without having to do anything , It's great that now I can work on a model and still play the game.

    i've also decided to spend less time on forums ( not this one and my Dutch forum though ), kitforums has split up into 2 forums and now both are not as strong together as the one was, so I'll be spending less time there.

    I also like that i will be able to have examples of what I am building right in front of me.
    I soon hope to start on a project I'v had in my mind for years now. One of the members of our dutch forum is working on a scetch up of White Water Falls Stock barn

    This is where he is at now.



    This is the one I asked if you could lasercut it Baron

    Thought I'd share the build of this small watermill , it's for the next scene on my layout , where the terrain gets slightly undulated and a small river runs through.

    Branchline Trains structures alway come in a nice box with full color photo on it.


    The parts , including laser cut shingles and peel and stick windows and doors.


    All the wood done with a stain of A&I


    Walls painted and the main structure assembled.


    Windows , doors and foundation added , the tickness of the windows makes me think that this is an older Branchline Trains structure , I hjave several other kits from them and the windows are much better looking on the what I believe to be newer ones.


    Roof subs on and part of the wheel assembled.


    More tomorrow.

    Bouli, I really like the color of that building. Is that an olive green?
