Finally, the front wall, still under construction. It needs additional weathering, windows, doors, and trim. -- Russ

Here is the progress on the rest of the structure the lean-to leans to. 1:48 scale. All paper. 100% scratchbuilt. No paint. ... And the first shot:

Russ,
Looks good and nice to see you building.   On the double sided tape, the group on Railroad-Line have used the 3M 465 with great results.   Karl Scholz and the late Mike Chambers and many others have used this since 2006 with great results.

I started my card stock model last night to try the Lanaquarelle you sent me.   Prompted by your work and Troels Kirk's designs and hope it will be up to par.

Very effective, Russ.
It sure doesn't look like paper in the photos. 
Also, how'd you do the windows? They look too precise to have been hand-cut.
Unless your hands are far more steady than any of us could have imagined......

The windows are laser cut Strathmore Bristol Plate from my own CAD drawings, Ken.

Surprisingly, the printed paper doesn't look like paper in person, either, even under magnification. It looks like weathered, painted wood. The texture makes the difference.

Last year I discovered Lanaquarelle 180 gram cold press paper I had printed and distressed was indistinguishable under magnification from stained, distressed basswood. I showed the results to a group of picky Terrapin modelers and none could detect a difference. That was the Great Epiphany.

I use a different paper, with a velvety sheen, for newer looking boards and trim.

So color is one-half the battle and texture the other. If you mess up on either you destroy the effect.

I like it a lot, too.  You were successful in another element to making it believable-- there is no noticable repitition to the graphic.   That can also destroy the effect.

Russ, I find this wall very convincing.
You might be interested by this picture of a ship I am currently building in O scale. The hull is covered with canson paper, the wheelhouse with wood. While there is a difference since I used distressed wood, I think that on the picture the two sidings don't appear very different.
