Very nice, Karl. I've learned something today, as I didn't know the little window above the door could be opened.

Thanks guys for all of your great comments and posts, I appreciate your responses.
I had wanted the door frame/windows to be more of an aged weathered grey look, but, it didnt quite work out, maybe I'll play with some adjustments/redo but I'll probably just move on.

Thanks Frederic, the combination of some lasercut base componants mixed in with true board-by-board construction allows for some very detailed, accurate and authentic items, such as the transome door/window. Building up the window frames and trim with stripwood gives that great authentic look, Brett is the master at creating and utilising this combination.

Next up will be stenciling the front barn wall, then I can glue the barn together.

Your peeling paint and color are spot on, Karl. The weathering on the trim looks consistant with the siding. Very convincing. I'm looking forward to seeing this next to the brick wall of the cookhouse.

Did we lose Wes along the way?

Thanks Bill, I dont think we lost Wes, maybe he's just waiting for me to catch up. Either that or his surf board and mountain bike are grabbing his attention for a while.

I'm also looking forward to colouring the brick, but, I think that is in the next chapter of the manual, much to do first.

HAHA

Im still here guys. Karl is right though. The waves have been rather good lately so ive been taking full advantage. I finished some of the machines lastnight aswell as the roof of the tractor reapir shed. i just keep forgetting to take pics. I will tonight.

In the mean time here is what has been keeping me from the bench.

Karl, your work is wonderful. I still can't get over the red walls on the store. I've used the Chuck Doan method for peeling paint- do you remember what the variance was that you used?

Wes, would you be interested in trading houses for the next few months? If you do, dress warmly.

Hey guys

Im back with some minor progress. Karls work is pretty impressive and is seriously pushing me to improve my modelling.

Ive finished the painting drill press and the grinder for the repair shed. all that is left is the grinding discs and the wire representing a drill bit on the press



Ive also managed to complete the floor section of the shed where these 2 will stand.



Let me know your thoughts.

My thoughts are very positive, Wes. Are the machines complete (and old ones, now not in use any more) or do you still have hardware to add to them?
In any case, their weathering is excellent.

Thanks Frederic.

Nope they not complete. Still have some finishing touches to add. Im going to model them as still operational, but not used all the time. Ill be adding the overhead belt sysytem this weekend.

Good to see you back at the bench Wes. Great job on those details, nice chip effect and not over done, just used.
I'll be interested to see how you make these 'operational'.

Great work
thanks for the compliments.

Wes

Nice weathering on the machines. Be interesting to see how they come to life.

Karl and Jerry

Thanks for the kind words. I'll do a bit of research tonight to see how they hooked up to the overhead belt system.

If anyone has some pics, please post them.
