24' Work Caboose & Logger cabins

24' Work caboose

First steps working on the frame

Truss Rods did not fit the holes so I replaced them with 30 gauge wire.

Here is the frame airbrushed with red oxide primer.


Logger's cabins

Painted roofing and smoke stacks on the roof placed on the roof.

First steps build the cabins less widows

Acrylic paint over alcohol  stains with peeled paint FXs following FOS Scale Models instructions.


3 cabins with windows and doors.

Notice the sub roofing, in some cases the tabs are tight as the size of the buildings have changed with painting and peeled paint. Care must be taken with the corners as the precut material is a little long and will force the roof up. Careful cutting or sanding of the corners and the door frames will help the sub roof fit snug to the cabin.
