    The Savoy is a restored theatre that us now the home of the New Essen Performing Arts Project.
    This was scratch built using nothing but leftover scraps from other kit bashing projects and some balsa wood sheet. This is based loosely on the Fulton Theatre in Lancaster, PA.

    The second picture is of a city hall diorama that I did for an eBay sale. This started as three beat up Vollmer buildings that I got real cheap on eBay.

    @Phil91 Thanks! It took me about two weeks working on it an hour or two as I could. I worked on it along with other scratch building projects. If anyone is interested, I could post those here also.

    I had tickets to see the New Essen Symphony. My train was delayed (track maintenance) and we only caught the encore number. Supposedly one of their best performances.

    Default My Video of Scratchbuilding the Georgetown Station, in Georgetown Ontario, Canada

    Kitbash? Scratch build? Regular kit?
    Show us some pics and even a brief description of what you did!!
    Let's see those buildings!!!

    My replica of the Georgetown Station has been in progress since the fall of 2010. The station was built from pictures from the internet, railroad books and actually measuring the actual station which is still standing and is in use for GO trains. The station has interior detailing and was built as it would have appeared in the early 1900s, Water columns and luggage carts are also scratchbuilt. My computer was used for a lot of the material for the station. Enjoy.

    These don't compare to the work here, but I thought I would share anyway. Here are some work in progress houses on my new layout module:



    A scratchbuilt factory:


    Scratchbuilt warehouse:


    Scratchbuilt water tower and lumber shed:


    Scratchbuilt scrap baler and barrel shredder:

    Sure, this was the biggest building I ever made. Last one I made before I lost my laser


    And my wife gave this building a re-painting and general face-lift.

    Used my Nov purchase of corrugated roofing on the grain elevator kitbash. The material is from Campbell. Now it's time to do some finish work, paint it and weather.

    I did this recently. It's based off of a Gary60s design from the downloads section. At 300 sq. ft. it's a rather small house but I like it.

    There are many nice structures on this thread and they deserve to be enjoyed. So here's a bump and my latest structure. Nothing fancy, just a MP Erie Station. It's mostly done, but I will add some window panes, more paint, and shrubs when I need something to do.

    I'm surprised this thread isn't more active. We all seem to post our latest locos in the loco thread.

    My thoughts as well. I had to do a search as I thought there would be a sticky for it. I guess members start a thread instead. There are some very nice structures here.

    I also think that the thread next to this one Urban Modeling contains so many of Jimmi's kitbashes that people may have forgotten that this thread exists!

    Very nice Steve. Post some build and progress pics if you would, so I can steal your ideas. Maybe I missed it, but do you have a layout thread going. A few glimpses of your layout look really interesting and like to see your progress.
