Sss 112 Sears Brentwood

Here is another of the Sears homes.  Footprint is 1 3/4  x 2 5/8 and is a moderately easy build.  To make base blend in with ground cover, before beginning assembly,  I suggest using the base to make a "foot print board" (http://www.nscale.net/forums/showthread.php?25602-Footprint-boards&highlight=footprint+board).  This structure would look at home in a woodsy setting or a suburban area.  It can be done in wood but sketches are based on styrene thicknesses. If you use another material adjust dimensions accordingly. Paint parts before assembly, except where the edges glue to other parts.

The building directions and materials are in the sketches, and to make your build easier you can enlarge them to full size and print them out. Read directions in assembly sketches before cutting out parts as you may want to change some sizes or cut fewer, or additional, openings.  Included sketches are: Overview sketches, Parts templates,  Assembly sketches,  and PDF's.

To print the part templates actual size, use the PDF's. Select best printer quality, set PDF zoom to 100%, and page scaling to "none" or actual size. Check your printed page to see that 3" lines are exactly 3" long. Once you have template printed, you can cut with scissors (leave a 1/8" border) and arrange on your material for maximum sheet usage. Part templates for siding are a mirror image, when needed, so that you can cut walls with siding side down (easier to cut). Be sure siding grooves are oriented correctly. Use rubber cement or Krylon Easy Tack Repositionable Adhesive to glue paper templates to your material and then just cut on lines. No measuring ! Paper comes off easily.

Cut out parts carefully using a SERB and straight edge. The best way to cut out window openings is with a corner punch. It is important to follow assembly sketches IN SEQUENCE or some parts may not fit.

Original design called for shutters, and you may want to add some.  With no interior walls, you may also want to put curtains inside windows.

That's really cool Gary.

I wish I could convince you to start here, https://goo.gl/maps/Zv1877VBh6n, and do one for every building you come across as you go north...

That's a great tour Ed.  Some beautiful buildings there and it would be a challenge.  I haven't had good luck with brick structures, so if I did it, I would look for the wood ones.

Well, I'm gonna need em all! It looks like I'll be able to model that stretch almost building for building.
