This side of the forum evidently doesn't see much traffic. How about some authentic buildings of the real American West? We have a treasure of resources here that I'm using as inspiration for some new building models, the National Ranching Heritage Center at Texas Tech University:
The 'Explore' link under the Historical Park heading will activate a nifty interactive Flash application showing the buildings in the collection. I'm currently working on a model of this one, the Barton House:
The collection also features an original yellow Santa Fe Depot building that I'm planning to do later- there did appear to be some interest in an old depot building for model RR layouts, so I might do that one soon.
I've also acquired lots of data on structures at the old Air Force Base that closed here 10 years ago- lots of hangars and cold-war vintage buildings. While some are WWII vintage, most are much more modern and would be more appropriate for the jet age. I plan to do a control tower and some flightline shacks to support the nifty century series aircraft the other side of the forum is promising...
