Thirty foot gon

I started with a department store train set gon. After taking it apart, the center section was removed, cutting along the side braces. The weight as shortened as was the under body. The parts were then reassembled and painted. Couplers and wheel sets finish the car.  It was then weathered and lettered.

Suckers Oyster Shack

Original building

Starting with Shuckers Oyster Shack by Full Steam Ahead, (Just one of two buildings in the kit) I added a lower section made of board and batten scale lumber sheets. A dock system and people were added to the scene along with some barrels and crates. The scene is in a back bay of Port Loleta
Added a lower section and dock to the bottom of the building
