ice house, the main train station and a few more. My plan is to make/buy a number of Victorian era HO scale models and use them as backgrounds.
Now, I'm not sure if you've ever seen one of those building kits, but they look really fake. Plastic. As an experiment, I bought a train station in N scale for my home layout. I removed the plastic brisk base and created a more appropriate wooden one using this unique balsa wood that had been scored or etched by a laser to look like 2x4s.
Then I went to town and weathered the whole enchilada and added some mud on the ground and at the base of the building. I think it looks rather... used.
Terry gave me some awesome pointers, so the next ones I do are going to look even better. Plus, they're twice as big, which will make it a little easier.
