After Dennis (denray) posted his new station using Magic-Sculpt we thought we would give it a try and rock this Farm Life building that we use for a speeder storage. I just saw that I forgot to spray a coat of Krylon clear coat on that will help about the shine. The Magic-Sculpt was very easy to work with and we will sandstone rock a lot more on our layout. Thanks to Garden Railways for the article and to Dennis for bring it to our attention.

That looks great, how long did it take you to do it? I am sure not long even for your first building. I am finding more and more stuff to do with the magic sculp, I love it. Where did you get them doors?
And Stan at Prescott, Arizona told me to tell you Hello.
Great project keep them coming.

Dennis, Reba did the sculpting a side or two as she had time and I did the painting. Thats one of the things that we like about it you work a side stop and go back and add more later. The doors came on the building. Here's a pic with the speeder.

Was that a plastic building?

Dennis, yes it was a Farm Life 1:32 building that I got at Atwoods and 3000toys a year or two ago. I couldn't find it on 3000toys just now.

Did you happen to take a photo before you started?
I know there is a termendous change, I know you can take a cheap plain looking building and really make some huge changes.

Those little NewRay buildings are great for side structures. I the horse stall and small barn next to a farmhouse. Technically they are 1/32 scale, but they fit right in as small structures. I have not been able to find this one online yet.

Your stonework came out swell Henson. With all the old stone buildings used in the east and the south particularly this material and technique should prove a real boon to modelers.

Did you have to rough up the plastic on the building to get the Magic-Scuplt to stick? Thanks for the post!

Richard, we just rolled it out with a rolling pin with wax paper between and pressed it on the plastic. You have a hour to hour and half to
do the carving. This stuff would work great on your Plexiglas building.

Your right all of the old building on our town square are building with sandstone rock.

Good work and very imaginative. The effect is quite appealing.
