Ana Verde RR Shack


Finger and Toe Models announces the release of the 28mm pdf model Ana Verde Rail Road Shack.  The shack comes with five exterior textures, five roofs, plus an interior.

As  the railroad reached California’s Mojave Desert in the latter half of the nineteenth century, the workers began building shacks for housing by the new train stations.  The High Desert, as it is known, has truly hot summers and well below freezing winter, but the shacks were neither heated nor cooled.

Whitewashed exteriors brought some sense of civilization to the old dwellings, but the desert’s high winds and constant dust sandblasted them back to raw lumber.  Eventually, the survivors were stuccoed to provide better protection from the elements and provide at least a veneer of respectability.  In the twenty-first century they still sit just beyond the tracks.

Beyond the little railroad towns, homesteaders and miners adopted the same design for their fragile existence.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your Ana Verde Rail Road Schack, a new set waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

A delightful little model and fantastic value for money. Like the Shotgun House, you only get one interior for no less than five buildings. My recommendation is to print an interior for every one and include them. These little beauties will look right [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
