I'd love to achieve that color on my models! I see that the residents of Maine are still pretty frugal.

I hope nobody minds but while I'm at it I'd like to let folks see a little bit of my 'neighborhood'.

This is a boathouse in Back Cove.


An here's a little shed down in New Harbor.


These next three are only a short walk down the road from me.




And this last one is very special, it's my barn! Proof that a shoemaker's children always go barefoot so does a carpenter's house go into disrepair. There are hand cut nails holding on what's left of the siding and no other nail holes in the sheathing boards which tell me that this is the original cedar siding from 1830 when it was built.

Chester, The building with 3 holes in it, look like it was hit with a meteorite.

Chester,
Don't let that barn go!!! It is a treasure that can't be duplicated. The value of a barn can add a lot to a home and makes a great workshop. I know from experience.
SAVE IT NOW!
Here's my before & after

Chester, Love the walkway bridge in the background of the boathouse shot. Your pic's are a great study in weathering, right down to the telephone/power poles.

Great job on that barn, And yes more need to be saved as barns or even housing.

Dave, your barn looks great! Lots of TLC I see, congrats. Mine will eventually get done, priorities, the house needs work too.

KP, That walkway is for a lobster pound beyond.

Chuck, the motor oil stain is effective but the odor can be overwhelming on a hot day.

I realize that these are all wood structures, but doesn't the motor oil increase the flammability immensely? I sure hope the owner wasn't a smoker too!

Oh Harry, the oil based stains used by many are by far much more flammable than used motor oil.
