Post subject:  “LTL Freight Transfer Co.” project…

Here’s a small structure I’m building…I borrowed heavily from a series of photos I found on a British model rail forum for most of the design...

The best description of the construction would be “coarse scale”…it's sized it to go with my Marx tinplate and post-war Lionel...the base measures about 4 ½” x 6 ½"...it's 6” tall at the peak...

It’s made entirely from cereal box cardboard, corrugated cardboard, recycled express mailing box cardboard, cardstock and a few match sticks…that’s just a temporary sign on the roof…there’s still a lot detailing, painting and finishing to do…

Colors?…probably “galvanized grayish” walls and truck side doors…“barn and implement red” roof…“farm green” track side doors…“creosote brown” foundation walls…

I also have to make the small office building that goes along side the building on the right of the truck side…more about it later…

My very best regards…

Howard…

Nice Howard...a very sharp project which would look good with scale trains or tinplate.
