Another very nice job Roberto!

We call them Substations in the US too.

3 days left... I don't know if I am going to make the cut! I picked up some more #11 blades in an attempt....

I am getting mine in at the buzzer. I wanted to get the feel of this structure in N-scale...



Here is what I ended up with.



Geeeezzzz-I need to get a new camera! Now I will add the details, like brass stairs and piping details.

Here is my submission for the challenge....

You'll have to excuse the pictures...photography is not one of my passions

the walls are construction paper run through a paper shredder and glued on to a cereal box.

For the roofing I found a shingle pattern I liked on the net and printed it on to a sticky label I have for a CD labeling program I have and (almost) instant peel and stick roofing.



and the assembled version

Well, the first edition of the Cardstock Challenge is over, I would like to thank Roberto, Rich, K&K railway, Percy and Grindopolis for their contributions, I know there is still some work in progress and I'm looking forward to see them finished. Unfortunately things didn't go as I planned and I wasn't able to give my contribution. In a few month's we'll do a second edition and I hope to have something finished before the deadline.

If you want to offer a prize why don't we start a new challenge? It's been over a year since the last one...You could count me in....
