Hopefully I can do that. Using smaller wood makes for a very fragile structure. I wish there was TT scale machinery and other items available that would be found in a backwoods engine house.

Here's a picture of Tony Burgess's scratch built engine shed. I believe it's HO. Notice all the detail junk and other stuff. He made a majority of the details his self.

It’s been a while since I posted on progress on the engine house. One delay I had was with the wood I had ordered. I finally did get the wood I needed.

I started by staining all the lumber. Once dry I cut it to the correct length for the walls in my home made chopper.

Image

Next I set up my magnetic holding jig. The use of magnets helps hold the structure down while gluing on the boards.

Image

If the boards don’t want to stay down a couple of magnets placed on top helps.

Image

One thing I discovered was if you’re right handed it’s better to begin on the left placing the boards and working right. Makes holding the boards with tweezers much easier.

Image

I let the glue dry nice and hard for a day and then trimmed the ends off.

Image

Once all the excess board overhang was trimmed I temporarily installed a window to see what the wall would look like.

Image

And one of the outside with a window temporarily installed.

Image

A pic of both close together.

Image

Next will be the end walls. Until then remember scratch-building is fun.

Thanks Alex. A bit tedious due to the scale size but relaxing for me.

I got the front wall done. A lot of time was consumed building the round window. There are six pieces to make the window. Still missing is the glass. Haven't decide on whether to use individual panes or one whole piece. I'll present details of how I built it when I do the rear wall.

Every time I look at this I think of building balsa and tissue airplanes back in the 50's and early 60's like my Dad did in the 30's and 40's! It makes it seem more do-able for me too in my retirement years. My monitor makes some of the boards seem to be stained purple, but I like the variation in color. I really enjoy seeing this come together.
Thanks!
