This is intended to be a rural, makeshift, sawmill. All equipment is scratchbuilt. On30 trackage.













































This cabin was later added. It is intended to be the "field office". Not built by the logging company, it was found nestled in the woods where the logging was being done.

















Someone suggested I add this close-up of the o gauge 12 gauge.

Thanks, John. The sawmill wood is basswood and balsa wood. The cabin logs are Forster "Skinny sticks" found at Walmart and other craft stores.

The coloring is washes of "sweet and sour" mix, steel wool disolved in white vinegar, and ink/alcohol.

So the different tones of color on the wood are from different saturation rates applied or do you mix up different batches of stain? I was thinking the basswood & balsa wood would absorb the washes evenly. I've used the ink/alcohol but have not tried the steel wool white vinegar. I think I"ll try that "sweet & sour" mix with alittle more patience with my application. Thank's for the come back!

I have different mixes of I/A, light, medium and dark. The sweet and sour mix, depending on how dark I want it, I may add addtional washes after each has dried.
