I often find myself looking for good reference photos for specific things, such as old doors, windows, roof details, etc. So I've decided to put together some pages of photos for modelers to use as reference.

Doors: http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Doors.html

Windows: http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Windows.html

Roofs: http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Roofs.html

Weathered Wood: http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Wood_Textures.html

Weathered Metal: http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Metal_Textures.html

Sidewalks and Concrete: http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Concrete.html

Steel Drums: http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Steel_Drums.html

These are just a start. Eventually I want to add more photos, and more topics. If you'd like to recommend a topic, just let me know.

Great photos, Ray.

One can never have too many good photos of details.

I personally like to take photos of piles of junk laying around.

I don't take many as I never seem to have a camera with me when I find good ideas.

Thanks for sharing and I look forward to more detail photos in the future.

Thanks for all of the photos Ray. And Darryl, the best photo I ever took was when I had my camera with me.

Thanks Ray,

I've been wanting to do a serie of doors in a framed box and this will come very much in handy

I've done a lot more work on this... first of all, I created a Modeler's Resource page to list all the links to specific topics:

http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Modelers_Resource.html

I also added a lot more photos to the existing topics, and added several more topics, including Utilities (electric meters, fuse boxes, etc.); Cooling (swamp coolers, old A/C units, fans); Valves (pipes, fittings and valves); Signs; Windmills, Mailboxes, and Hydrants.

A couple of these topics don't have very many photos yet, but eventually there will be more. And of course I'll add more pics to all the topics, and new topics, as I get them.

Enjoy!

I just came across a website that has a lot of great photos, plans and info about mining and mining equipment. This guy restores mining equipment for museums and such, as well as building working replicas. You can find out a lot about how this stuff was actually used, as well as what it looked like:
