Well, this is my first steps in structures in 0 scale.
Ive just start with my first scratch structure in this scale. Ive been model H0 for many years, and change to 0n30 few month ago. I start this building with many laser cuts, first I draw in CAD and cut in laser in a 1mm sheet. Side walls are 2mm MDF, I decided to cut in laser because I havent to do all cuts for windows and doors. Then I glue hand scribbed sidding wood. How am planning to add interior, I Have to do interior walls in MDF too, but not laser cut.
Send pics of the shhets with many parts I cut.
I know i was wrong in the measures of the sidding wood, I will change it in the other sides.
Hope you enjoy!
Lucas

Lucas -

Very impressive.  What laser machine do you use to cut the wood?

Thanks Mark. A friend of mine has the laser cut machine. Is a Versa VLS series.
I can find it, I think the VLS2.30 is the same he has:

Thanks, Lucas.

Just looked on the web and found a US supplier with a price list.  Not inexpensive, but not as bad as I was expecting.

Yesterday was playing with plaster castings. I have to do the basement, I said playing, because I never tried it before. Im satisfied with results, now I have to paint it. You can see all tools used.

Looking good Lucas.
You have had better luck on the stones than I did!
I would suggest looking at "New England Brownstone" he has a website, it is the best stone work I have ever seen.
He also has a TON of proto pics.
The open air shed is cool too.

  Lucas,

  a pity you brushed the wall after you carved out the stones. Now the brush lines are accentuated as they run all in the same direction. The stones directly from the wrinkled al. foil look much better.
