SAEZ SASH & DOOR Kits 416 & 417
Saez Sash and Door 416-417 are where the lumber was cut, stored, and dried. It really catches your attention. This craftsman kit consists of scale lumber (sugar pine) and is ready for paint and weatherizing. Complete instructions, drawings, and templates are included. This is a laser-cut kit. Campbell Scale Models
These Campbell Scale Models structures were unfinished for a couple of years, so I recently installed the windows and doors. The complete scene for this industry consists of these two kits. These two kits are featured in Great Model Railroads (page 77) and built by Gerry Leone, which inspired me to finish mine. The siding was very dark and shiny, so I rubbed some of it away with a stiff brush and lacquer thinner. Some white was added and then disbursed with the same treatment. The pasted on signs are from A.I.M. and are pre-weathered and faded like you see and match the age of my models. The scene is at the edge of town where the pavement ends.
If I were to take a picture from this angle, what kind of details would look good in the scene? I discovered that brown paper shopping bags are suitable for representing cardboard as you see on the ground. Narrow strips of black paper look like band iron. #4 yellow grass and some planks across the tracks. A shovel near the green trash container and a workman on the lumber loft. Pallets, barrels, old tire, and ladder on the ground with a steer eating grass.
