I bought a used Fine Scale Miniature Barnstead Lumber kit, and I knew it was missing most of the castings, what really makes a FSM kit special. The main building was already built, but damaged, and none of the other buildings had been started. To replace all the missing cast metal details, I designed details, and had them printed at shapeways.com. Some are available for sale in my shapeways store (http://www.shapeways.com/shops/nvrr49). If you see something you want in these pictures that is not listed in my store inventory, just let me know, and I can make it available.
|A general, overall shot of the lumberyard. The main store to the left, the lumber shed in the back and a mill shop to the right. There is a railroad spur that runs right in front of the lumber shed and behind the main store.|
|From the right end, you can see the railroad siding. The main building had one window missing, so I boarded it up. The windows were missing for the enclosed space at this end of the lumber shed, so I designed some and printed them at shapeways.|
|The saw area in the middle of the lumber shed is equipped with a 12" table saw and a 16" swing arm cutoff saw.|
|Here is a pallet of fencing supplies. The fence mesh is wedding veil material, and the fittings I designed and printed at shapeways. The fittings are cored out to accept .020 wire.|
|Both the pallets and stacks of concrete blocks were printed at shapeways.|
|These windows were done as scenery, but could be used in a building. Again, these were printed at shapeways. The stack of plywood behind the windows is from the original kit, and is cut to size card stock.|
