  1. Now that I've finally found the time to build my Greenleaf Westville, I can't find the instructions. Do they exist online anywhere for download? New to this community. Thank you so much for any help you can provide.
  2. Hello everyone! I have taken the liberty of sharing my Layered PSD Photoshop file of the Greenleaf Fairfield Dollhouse. I created this file to help my wife choose the colors that she wanted for the outside of the house. Photoshop File: You can download the Photoshop file at: http://www.caddisart.com/fairfield?utm_source=LinkToCAIFairfield&utm_medium=LinkToCAIFairfield&utm_campaign=LinkToCAIFairfield You can see the :30 video of me making this file at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xa7tgUjgUo0 If you have any questions, please feel free to reach o
  3. Hi, I was wondering if Greenleaf has a Southern Plantation kit. I saw one on Esty but it is in Australia and they only have 1 left. I'm interested in having it be my next project as I love the look of it BUT I just started my very 1st project and I'm nowhere near ready to get another one. Thanks
  4. Hope I am obeying the rules. I am "New" here, but my eBay record is visible, and I can point to when I bought and sold high end cinema cameras and gear. I am happy to provide additional photos or details if requested. (1) Arrow Kit 750 Royal Dream Kit in original box, Appears complete, I counted the main wood sheets. I am not sure if any shingles or other loose pieces. Box is old masking tape nightmare, but it is there. (2) Kit: Dura Craft Heritage HR 560
  5. FurMama's post here reminded me that I have two Greenleaf kits (somewhere! I haven't seen them in months!) that I had once intended to bash. Yeah, I know, another project I'll probably never get to. I didn't want to hijack her thread with my own project and questions so I'll start anew. The kits are this one: https://shop.greenleafdollhouses.com/laser-cut-chantilly-dollhouse-kit/ That brought up the question of just how hard is it to kit-bash a tab-and-slot house? Can you reverse them by flipping over the pieces? I know it's more involved than that but I think you get what I'

    Next on the list was the screen door. I wasn't going to have one but every photo I came across showed one. Okay. The challenge came to finding scale screen material. Brae had shared what she used for her screen door but I could not find it locally. I hunted everywhere. Luckily at Michaels the associate showed me Tulle. It looked good to me! I made two frames and sandwiched the Tulle between them. Then painted aluminum. It didn't turn out half bad.
  7. Hello All! This will be my attempt to share my attempt at building the Greenleaf Travel Trailer. As some of you may know from my introduction, I am preparing to start building my sister's Glencroft I gave her back in the 80's. To prepare for this I have been building various kits to help me prepare for this task. I started by building a few Robotime kits including the greenhouse kit I gave my mother for Mother's Day last year. Wanting to "get my feet wet" with the style of construction I would face with the Glencroft, I came across the Travel Trailer kit. I thought this would be a

    Light test

    From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    Here I have them lit. I really like how they look. I have two amber lights for the front markers. I can finally check these off my to do list!
  9. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    The next order of business to come up with some clearance lights. Using 1/4" styrene tube I cut some small sections and profiled them to the contour of the curving roof line, drilled holes for the led's and epoxied them in place.
  10. It finally occurred to me that I'm on a Greenleaf forum and I have never shared that Greenleaf has one of my favorite and most used products, but I'll get to that last. First a couple of questions. Is anyone familiar with Greenleaf's vinyl tile flooring? Is it glossy, and if so, can it be dulled? I want a paved stone look throughout the entire first floor of my Creole plantation house. This product: https://shop.greenleafdollhouses.com/miniature-scale-vinyl-floor-tiles-grey/ While I can do the paperclay method, I'm worried that is going to add a great deal of weight

    You may find that after sanding the Bondic there may be some slight imperfections on the frame. I used a long standing secret among plastic model builders.........Pledge Floor Gloss (formally know as Future Floor Shine). Among its many uses it to render clear plastic (such as model airplane canopies) crystal clear, act as a clear coat on model car bodies and can simulate glass lenses on aircraft instruments. Dipping the frames into the Pledge a few times produces a smooth, clear acrylic coating that looks great once painted.
  12. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    Here is the final result after airbrushing the frames with Tester's Model Master Aluminum paint.
  13. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    The frame is then sanded and the resin is blended into the surrounding area.
  14. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    Here is what the frame looks like after the gaps are filled. What's nice about this stuff is you can continue to build up the resin in layers and the new layer bonds with the underlying layer.

    Bondic

    From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    I was trying to come up with a way to fill the gaps in the corners of the frame but nothing really worked. I then came across a product called Bondic. Bondic is a clear resin that cures with ultraviolet light. Once cured, it can be sanded, polished, drilled, tapped, painted etc. It is not a glue, you can actually make things with it and the website explains more on how it works. https://notaglue.com/ The orange piece on the end of the tube is the ultraviolet light. You literally dispense the resin and then shine the light on the resin for 4-8 seconds and it's cured!
  16. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    Here you can see the ends are glued together and the smaller angle piece bridging both ends.
  17. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    Then I use the original frame to help form the new one. I trim the edges flush and install a smaller piece of angle underneath to bridge the two ends together. Glue it up and you now have a frame!
  18. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    I then make the four cuts locating the corners, then make additional cuts on either side of the first so the frame can bend.
  19. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    Using the original frame as a mold, I made a template indicating the center of the four corners and transferred that to a piece of styrene.
  20. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    I didn't like the window frames that came with the travel trailer so I made my own. Used some 1/8th" styrene angle

    Trailer Frame

    From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    I did not like how the trailer tongue looked so I decided to make my own. So why stop there! A full frame was made from styrene.

    Finished Wheels

    From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    These are how they look finished. I decided to eliminate the wheel wells in the trailer so that's why the two are cut flat on top. The complete one will be mounted on the rear tire carrier. The axles are painted with a special chrome paint that looks the best I have ever seen. You can actually see yourself a bit in the finish. I wanted to simulate chrome baby moon hub caps

    Wooden Axles

    From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    These are the matching axles.

    Wooden Wheels

    From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    The wheels that come with the kit are a joke in my opinion. Basically three wooden disks with a rectangular hole per side. You are supposed to glue two stacks of three disks together and the "axle" is a rectangular flat piece that the disks fit on to. When researching alternatives these wheels were mentioned by HavannaHolly and some others as perfect replacements. They look 1000 times better!
  25. From the album: Greenleaf Travel Trailer

    When researching vintage TT's I came across pictures of Shasta interiors with their maple paneling. Since I didn't know any better I got more of the 1/64" veneer, made templates and cut out each piece and custom fitted it to the trailer. I then stained them maple with satin polyurethane. A ton of work but I think it will pay off in the end.
