Are you building the 1/12 or 1/24 scale version of greenleaf orchid?

The reasonable price of some of their 1/12 kits might convince me i need more than just my old log cabin that's kinda out of place at meets... but i'm a slacker so i'd probably just pick up yet another car chassis instead.
Thanks Frizz
It could happin on roof.
They use cardboard for that old corrigated look.
Soak on side and peel of the first layer leaving the humpy's. Cut to size and paint.
Pretty sneaky I know. Cost effective too.
Scale is 1/12 But actually closer to 1/10 in my opinion.
A TF2 would almost fit my addition, could be turned into a garage..ahahaha
I lost this to the wife and grand daughter although.
Buggar anyways haaaa

So it's on to making it purdy.
All kinds of custom going on.
Out of time to finish toe kick panels but this is the upstairs progress.

Walking the fine line between Realistic scale and RC functionality..

I figured that's why ya got 3. First one build stock for them, make pretty. Then the other 2 work into something that's not planned until after it's finished.

That could work. I'd seen some scale corrogated tutorials about making a male mold and a pusher tool, sheets made using aluminum tooling foil or disposable baking pans. Chopsticks could be somewhere about right size to make corrogation tool.

Make the Still. But it goes with the pretty house, that happens to have a hidden speak-easy...
