Small Station Platform

The completed platform which has been stained with Hunterline creosote and dry brushed with Floquil grime.
I purchased an Atlantic Scale Modelers rural station kit which came with a really neat jig which made building the station platform really easy. I have set aside the jig for more platform builds...George Dutka

One begins with adding tape to the first jig to hold the deck boards in place. My chopper was put to work here.
This was really simple to do. I left a bit of a gap between boards.
The second jig is set in place which spaces the supports. There was not enough long pieces of lumber included so some piecing together was done were it would not show.

Roomettes Interiors

The jeweler store interior is made to fit into a DPM kit. I added two figures to the interior also.
Roomettes are a newer product which I purchased last year that really makes interiors look very realistic. The kits come with LED lighting...George Dutka

The second floor interior included lighting.

Narrow Gauge Cover-up

A narrow gauge car used as extra storage. Makes for a neat bit of modeling inspiration.
I took this photo in Portland, Maine in 2016 of a passenger car covered over possibly used as storage...George Dutka
