    Default First Scrathbuild

    Hey all,

    Im attempting to pick up where I left off on my first scratch build. Iíve just loosely placed a few of the Tichy windows and the frame for one of the freight doors In place for the photo. I used the Cash Mine kit from Blairline as inspiration as I really like the look of the building but didnít want to spend all that CASH. I also just placed a piece of the trim I will be using on the side of the building in order to get the effect I am after. It will have a platform and a bumped out section on the second and third floors of the main wall with plenty of windows. God I have so much more to do!

    My first attempt at attaching images. No clue if they will come out correctly or not.

    Thanks all,

    I’ve never even built a kit before. I’m sure that many mistakes will be made and please feel free to point them out as I go. I can take it. I’ve already deciced that not bracing my walls all the way to the top and bottom of my main wall will not fly (Jason Jenson). I’ll remedy that before moving forward.
