Thanks!
By the way, the prototype building was demolished right after we took our pictures. We did not take more than a few measurements, but fortunately it was possible to obtain drawings from a local museum.

Point is: If you know of a prototype building that is worth documenting, do it today!

Just a quick post so you know I havent given up.
On the southern wall of the prototype battens have bben added to the panelling. So on this wall I use Kappler scribed siding (1/32" thick, 3/32" spacing) with 1X4 battens. Tedious work, nice results. This is the sort of job I have to divide into rather short sessionsto avoid going totally bonkers.



Thats all for now, Hauk

The Dark Side of Ødsledal Stenexport:



This is the subassembly for the "Annex" of the building. This side of the building will never bee seen again after the building is placed permanently on the layout. Might be tempting to leav it unpanelled...



Nah, too late. Started already. I am really lining the coffers of Kappler, the amounts of stripwood this building absorbes is downright scary.



Above is a test assembly to see how everything adds up. The plan was to have the building ready this christmas, but that might be a bit optimistic.

Buy yourself a Byrnes Table Saw. 

Kappler company profits dropped 5% in the quarter following my getting mine.  Scale timber on demand and no waiting for the Pony Express if I run out of an odd size late on a Saturday night.  I now only stock 3/4" X 6" X 24" Basswood, Sugar Pine, and Red Spruce blanks from a local lumber yard and use Just In Time Delivery when I start a project.  The shame is that I won't be able to take it with me into the hospital after Christmas when I under go the transplant.

And the point is also to make a relatively simple model, so no interior will be modelled. I save the "all stops" modelling for 0-scale!
Hauk Hello,

why are you building this great model because scale is not 0?

I´m a member of a model railroad club here in Trondheim, Norway, and this building is for our club layout.
Here is an image of the facades pemporarily placed on the layout:



By the way, Norway is a rocky place, and the layout will reflect that:

Hello Hauk

clear if this is the club I understand the different scale.

The structure of the rocks looks already very nice.

Those windows really look good. I like the red siding too.
