Quick inventory of my structures.
Posted by Graffen on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 12:04 PM
Hi all!
I made a little inventory of my model buildings in HO...
They've really starting to add up (this isn't even all of them, maybe 2/3's).
The layout construction is imminent, so a good stash of ready built structures isn't a bad thing to have.
Roughly half of them are totally finished, and a quarter of them has lighting added.

I didn't count them, Michael, but you have to have probably hundreds of structures there. I gather you're either planning on having a huge layout or you're planning on either mass producing kits or just outright selling the excess. Trading out like or similar footprint structures on the layout is probably another option.

Very finely done structures, by the way. Are these kits? kitbash? Scratchbuilds? All of the above?

Great work, Michael.  Structures add so much character to a layout.  Out of all of the facets of this hobby: trackwork, electrical, scenery, locomotives and rolling stock, I get the most pleasure out of building, painting and weathering structures.

Michael,

.

That is a very nice looking collection of structures.

.

I just dismanted a layout, and I only saved three completed structures. I have decided to change the look of my railroad a bit on the new layout. I plan to begin new layout construction in 24 months. Hopefully I will have a smaller collection of buiding by then.

Graffen, you are a Hoarder Summa C_u_m Laude, and every one of those structures is a work of art.  Yes

P.S. I had to struggle to add that word between Summa and Laude. The forum software apparently thought that I was talking dirty - - - LOL.
