Avid scratch builder Ray Persing presents his ‘Scratch-Building in Wood’ clinic previously been presented at the Mid-Central Regional and NMRA National convention. 

“Nothing makes a more realistic model of a wood structure than using wood as a modeling medium. In an era when craftsman kits are becoming increasingly expensive, scratch-building makes high-quality models possible on a budget. For the modeler who is considering scratch-building but either hasn’t started or has started with limited success. We’ll cover techniques used in constructing wood models by stepping through the construction of a prize-winning structure. Methods used to build a Merit Award quality model, as well as a number of warnings of things not to do, and alternative methods to achieve similar effects.”
