Thanks Karl and Peter, great to hear from you.

On a kit of this size though the "finished product" is quite some time in the future Karl.S, patience.

Got the clapboards coloured and placed, now it's just about time to be playing with peeling paint.... but... that can wait until tomorrow...

The peeling paint is great, Karl. Did you use Chuck Doan's method?

Thanks to you all for your posts.....

Frederic, the peeled paint was indeed done with a variation of the method that Chuck has used.

Jerry, the initial colouring of the boards was done individually using black chalk, before the boards were applied to the wall.

Wes, I look forward to you rejoining me and restarting this project. Also admiring your further updates.

Les, I hope that answered your questions and that nobody will be hurt. I also look forward to seeing your building flat project.

Karl.A

I guess I should have made myself clear. I meant the red.

But thanks for the info on the black to.

Karl,

I'm glad to see that you have left more colour up around the eaves of the end wall , where there would be less weathering . Well observed . I love the effect you have achieved with the red paint , looking forward to seeing it progress ,
