Looks awesome Wes, really nice job. The colour definition between the boards is well defined but subtle. The construction is precise and accurate .

I was reluctant to put the roof on mine the first time as it looked so cool with the studs and everthing when the walls were glued together, then when I finally put the roof on it looked even better, just like yours.

If you think its big now just wait till you get the rest of it built and put together!!! ha ha.

Great work, keep having fun and keep posting this great progress.

Karl.A

Wes, as Karl already said, you've got some good colors on your boards and your construction is very good too.
Keep the progress going.

Very nicely done, Wes. As for the size, you'll find that it's not so huge after the second build, a little less after the third... Until it becomes a bit small and then you'll go 3/8 scale...

Well I got the box back down from the shelf (dang that thing's heavy) opened it up and had a quick peruse......

The laser cut barn framing has been sprayed a tan colour as a base and will recieve some chalk colour later.

First thing to do though is to grain, distress, stain and knot that large pile of stripwood for the barn walls....



Check back later.....

Ah, these are great news, Karl!
Good work with the strip wood. I know you do it perfectly well, but it is a big job anyway.

If I remember correctly Frederic it is around 75 pieces of stripwood, maybe even more, for the barn siding alone, so yes a big job.
Not sure you are going to like what I do to it though as you are professing 'less graining' lately.
Sorry, but I have a feeling I'm going to distress this one a little more than your current taste.....

Looks like a three Corona job to me...
Looking forward to watching.

I see we have taken up the next kit. Excellent choice will be following along.

My choice for your new project! Grain, barley, and hops away on that pile of sticks. Merry Christmas to Karl, and to all of you.

Looking forward to see how you torture this wood, Karl.
My observation about distressing, you know, was made on an average basis. I have nothing against being particularly wild against one structure or two...
