Everything looks very good including the distressing, chalk and alcohol staining, and weathered appearance. What I'm wondering is why it is taking so long?

Sunshine and 82 in the shade today, hard to sit at the desk with that kind of weather.
Besides I always take my time on SierraWest builds, I like to savour them and do my best.

I finally spent some time yesterday finishing off some things that I had been 'putting off'...
Rafter tails are installed and I have finished work on the details except for some can labels to add.
With all the work done now I can start putting it all together, the base is prepped and everything is ready to go down.

As usual there sure is a bunch of stuff in Brett's box, ..









Added some of the smaller details to the half empty benches as per instruction
and following the pics in the manual.
Having these individual small items separate from the main casting is an incredible
way of modeling these items. Not only because of the versatility this gives you but the
crispness and realism in the positioning of the items just cant be matched with everything cast in place.
Another ground breaking innovation in detail modelling from Brett at SierraWest. Just superb.

The bench castings and your decorating of same is incredible, especially the one with the two open drawers and the tank with the red pipe wrench on top. How many loose small items are on the "open drawers" bench?

Karl,

Great job on all of the castings. This last weekend I was working on the same kit and finishing many of the same castings. I do have a question though. In one of your pictures are six bottles painted green. Two of them have white tops. What is supposed to come inside of those bottles? Just wondering what color to paint them all.

Thanks,
Mike S.
