Three more for Scots' Landing

Against the backdrop of my HO scale Scots' Landing module, I am planning a commercial street climbing a hill to the bluffs above the harbor. The businesses along the road have seen better days but they hang on, serving the river folk at Scots' Landing and people from the town up above. I recently finished three more structures for that street. Once in place, they will be 22 inches from the front edge of the layout.

The Caledonia Hotel
is a scratchbuilt paper model, a compressed version of McGee's Hotel from Microscale Models. I used photographs of the kit from Villius Beleisis' amazing blog at viliussm.blogspot.com. Villius' scale models are masterpieces.

Wishy Washy Laundry is also a scratch built paper model. The front walls are based on a photo of a model from somewhere on the Internet. I've modified it and added the sign and name in Photoshop. If you know whose kit and whose build it was, let me know so I can give proper credit for the photo. The side walls are a Clever Models clapboard sheet, the shingles are from Paper Creek (no longer in business), and the vents are from Walthers.

The coal dealer is a paper model kit from Clever Models. I widened it by moving the vertical "COAL" sign to the front of the building, and I added some roof detail.

The street will be about four feet long, so I have lots more storefronts to build.

Three more beautifully executed buildings. It will be an interesting (if somewhat shabby) commercial street.

Wonderful work, sir.


Is there going to be some residential?

Those are beautiful. A worthy addition to what must be a beautiful layout.

Three buildings that will truly add interest to the layout.
I particularly like the look of the laundry.
Nicely done

The laundry is my favourite among these three, as well. Terrific models.

Well, I hope it will be. So far, there's not much to see.

With respect to the layout, I certainly feel like the guy who said, "I've got nothin' to do and not enough time to do it."

Three More for the Ceresco & Wolf River

The Wet Whistle Tavern and the sheet metal shop will be part of the back scene at Scots' Landing -- a somewhat run down commercial street climbing the bluff. They are paper models, scratch built from photos. I don't have a spot for the bakers' supply co. yet. That is also a paper model scratch built from plans.

All three are HO scale (1/87). I built them with texture papers from Clever Models, Paper Creek, and ScaleScences, and windows & doors from my digital parts box. The sheet-metal roof on the sheet metal dealer came from The Texture Library (texturelib.com).
