Pennsylvania RR
tool shed

    This O-scale tool shed measures 4-1/2" wide x 6" deep and 3-1/2" tall at peak
    A model of a standard PRR design tool shed. Prototype plans are available on the www.pennsyrr.com website.

    I wanted the shed to be as close as reasonably possible to the prototype plans. No commercial windows were available to match those on the plans. A pattern was made in styrene and the windows were cast in resin and cemented to 0.010" thick clear styrene. The windows slide in tracks as per the prototype. The window frames, tracks and trim were made from scale stripwood.
    The walls feature board-by-board construction for the stud framing and board-and-batten siding. Vertical scale 1" x 12" boards were used with 1" x 2" batten strips.
The roof is made from individual rafters and scale 1" x 8" boards for the planking.
The floor is made from scribed sheet stock.
A styrene master was made for the base and cast in resin.
Other than the windows and base the structure is made entirely from Kappler sheet and strip stock.
