Fallsburg Fishing & Boating Club model

Hi all;

As I mentioned in my introduction, I'm a model maker specializing in historic architectural recreations. Here are a few photos of my somewhat recent build of the Fallsburg Fishing & Boating Club's original circa 1907 clubhouse. This structure served as the meeting house for the club and also as the place where members each had a locker and a place to tie up their boats. You would store your oars, etc. in your locker. The NYO&W railroad station was just up and across Lake Street, a short walk to the clubhouse, from whence you would row out to your cabin or campsite. Now the Lake has roads on both sides, and sadly, this structure was torn down around 20 years ago or so. I'd love to hear your comments; thanks for looking!

The models look very realistic. If you didn't tell me that they were models, I would have believed that they were real buildings. The building looks like an American Four-Square.
