Even the lock, Karl! You're pushing the detailing very far. Great!
Are the boards card or wood? When I made the little red shed on Dave's Corner, I used thin strips of wood (3mm x 0.6mm = 0.12" x 0.024"). I first stained them the usual way (water and black ink) then used a dipped a hard brush into red and tapped over the planks in a randomnly pattern (the Brett Gallant's method with a brush instead of a cloth), and got a satisfactory look (a bit worn, though, and it may not be your goal), which I then still more weathered with another staining plus a few splashes of paint since these Troelsy Mainish guys are not very careful...

I didn't see this ... I'm not seeing this ... don't want to see this ... don't even want to know about it ... make it go away man! Make me forget about this before I get to the two open doors I've got planned. Bad influence ... bad, bad, bad!



I see nothing ... I was not here ... I did not even get up this morning! (Actual quote!)

Dead Bird Taxi, on the other hand ... now that's amusing!

Thanks Marty, Frederic and Dallas.

Walls are finished Frederic, just a little dry brushing maybe.

Come on now Dallas, we both know that that 1/35 stuff is practically large scale, you should have no problems....

I suppose you dont even want to know about the key thats in the lock on the door then??

As Schultz said when LeBeau offered him some strudel: "You're a wonderful person for an enemy."

Karl,

Don't know how you build then so fast and have them look as great as they do. Another great build as usual and even in this build you pushed the envelope with the striking plate in the door.
