Thanks for the posts Bill and Marty, great to have you following along.

You're close in your comments Bill, I had a hand in the master but the design is all Bretts.

Brett gave me some sized templates and dimensions which I used to cast a block of plaster with recesses for the door and window.

I then carved in the random brick pattern, signed it and sent it off to Brett.

Brett then made the mold from the carving and thats what you get in the kit.

These are pics from my first attempt which I rejected due to too many flaws. The one shipped in the kit is signed "02".







Thanks again,
Karl.A

This is the kind of detail that makes a nice story a great one, Karl.

Just one of the many reasons why Karl is the "Farbricator"...

Karl

Nice coloring and the knot holes "perfect".

One thing though should I be afraid to ask what the "F" stands for in the yellow triangle!!!!!

Well Karl got the ball rolling on this one and ive started to get going on it too. man this is one huge kit.

Im going for the look of an old building that needs some repair but is still useable. Below are the front wall and the left hand wall. the other two walls are complete.



Let me know what you think. All comments welcome.

Nice work, Wes. If this was my wall, I would probably add some hints of moisture towards the bottom of the planks, with very light application og burnt umber paint and dark green pastel. That being said, the area you model may be a dry one and thus the planks would not require this kind of treatment (I guess one year and a half of marine modelling on Dave's Corner have wetted my modelling habits... ).

Thanks Frederic and Mario

Frederic you make an interesting point. Although the area i plan on modelling isnt near any water, I would like to model the odd rotten board. I was going to use AI just touched up against the end of the boards and let it wick up.

Anyone else have some ideas for me?

The walls look great Wes, the tones are distinct but blend together well, as always your actual construction is neat clean and accurate.
Great job so far and good to see you getting started. I'm looking forward to following along.

You're off to a great start on this one Wes, but Karl A. will probably really get going after he recovers from his marathon drive home from Peabody. I couldn't figure out why you had the "Shelby's" sign on a "Blue Sky Co." warehouse, but I went to Brett's website and then remembered the story that Shelby's Marine used to occupy the building before they moved down the road. Is the lettering decal or dry transfer, and is it an option to make it look more faded? I really like the colors and texturing you have done.
