Karl- awesome brickwork, but I can't figure out where this huge column is going- it seems too long for a smokestack for the hotel or dry goods store.

Thanks Mike,

The "brick stick" will be cut down into two chimneys for the hotel and
one for the warehouse structure.

Karl, I really like your walls how you have the moisture staining the lower sections of the boards. All the colour tones go together so well. Fantastic modelling!

The latest Arthur is that "gosh darn it" it's about time that I got back to this build and finished it off.

I pulled the dio down from on top of the kitchen cabinets, blew off a little dust and this is how it sits.









Still lots of work to do but I'm repeatedly told that detailing is "the fun stuff".... we'll see.

I hope to have many of you contributing in the thread as I finish this classic beauty off, so, jump in, join in and jolly well have a rip dandy time....

Darn good looking walls there minion..... yep.... really nice. The stick isn't bad either. Please keep the how-to's coming. Really enjoying this and I'm learning again. I was surprised however that you took 90 minutes to carve the brick stick. Heck, you've built entire structures in that amount of time, including weathering the thing.

Thanks Kris, great to have you along, I look forward to your further posts here.

(Did I mention that the 90minutes included mixing and pouring the plaster and then waiting 75 minutes for it to dry.......?) Ha, just kidding, I used to be quick, but not that quick, maybe with some practice and a refresher course.....

Karl... I just went back and re-read the entire thread only to find that you had responded to my post. I'm really amazed at how much info and tips you have shared in your threads, and this one is a prime example of that and a modeling course to boot. Heck, I even noted that you allowed enough time for us to catch-up with you.

Thanks Kris,
I've always believed that this hobby and particularly this forum is all about sharing.

I learned so much from the great modellers here on the forum in a short time who were generous enough to spend their time imparting their work with us. I thank them all.

(I wasn't waiting for you to catch up, I just got a little side-tracked)

Looking forward to the finish here Karl.

Superb work as usual!

The forum isn't the same without your projects!

My favorite line: "Frequency does not excede quality"......
