Disneyland Train Depot

This is a roughly HO-scale model of the Disneyland Main Street train depot. It was designed by Robert Nava and can be downloaded from his website, The Disney Experience.

I built it at about 1/2 the intended size, which makes it roughly 1/87th scale. It's laser-printed cardstock, and all pieces were hand-cut by me, including a lot of Victorian trim around the gables, dormers and support pillars.  I printed the flags double-sided on thinner paper, and used sewing pins as the poles. To eliminate all the white edges of the paper, I trimmed with gouache paint.

Video includes an excerpt from the song, "What? No Mickey Mouse?"
