|The word is out about how George uses a "drop-in" technique for his structure modelling. This is how the approach was adapted for use in 1:1 scale. This home on stilts was photographed in the Municipality of Marmora and Lake on August 28, 2021.|

Prototype Corner - "Drop-in" Structures
George builds and details a lot of structures. He then cuts a gator foam base to fit a particular location, and mounts the structure to this base. A few extra details are added to this base, then it is ready to be dropped into the layout. Additional identically-sized bases are created for this specific location, and other structures are mounted to these bases. This allows a variety of structures to be posed in the same location, creating different photo opportunities with a variety of industries or trackside structures, and permitting era-swapping. With all of this in mind, I thought it might be interesting to view a "drop-in" structure in 1:1 scale. Mind you, I didn't notice a multiplicity of structures available to be dropped into this particular location, but the concept of a building on stilts might just make for an interesting model.
