Two Story House

Two Story House


by Tom Bishop


This is an HO scale two story house that I scratch-built using card stock and foam core board.

Everything you see (except the scenery) was printed on the computer: roof, awnings, brick patio, windows.


I printed the “skins” on self adhesive paper than stuck them on card stock.

Two Story HouseThe fence is by Model Power and the scenery is from Woodland Scenics.

Bf109E-4 Trop









This Hasegawa kit is an excellent rendition of the famousBf109E-4 Trop . I built this straight from the box with no difficulties.




The Emil (Bf109E-4 Trop) was painted with Gunze-Sangyo and Testers Model Master Acrylic. Painted and marked as the plane flown by Lt. Werner Schroer, 2/JG27, the summer of 1941 in North Africa.
