Scratch Built Projects
Scratch building is the process of building a scale model "from scratch", i.e. from raw materials. Scratch builders usually start a project using scale drawings, photographs and other prototype information. They may use commercial detail parts, such as commercial windows that match the prototype structure or commercial detail parts if building a freight car, but the main part of the project is built from sheets/strips of plastic, styrene, wood or other materials.
Below are scratch built models on my layout and photographs of the actual structure that was modeled.
