Glad to see this pop back up. I noticed today for the first time the torn awning over the top left window. Very nice look. It certainly make this look like fabric.

Hey Karl,nice to see your thread come back up again!
Your work is always a pleasure to see!
I was starting to think, that you painted yourself into a corner at work somewhere.

Thanks for all the posts guys, really appreciate them all.
Currently staring at the dio and trying to decide where to jump in first.
Maybe I'll paint Frank, his silver suit is a little modern looking for the era.

Big potential for detailing there, Karl.
I don't know if I would do it first (might depend on what details I have available), but certainly these wooden posts beg for some clusters of wild grass.
I also see a man - or a woman (or, if I dare, both) - leaning over the railing and watching the spectators.
I love the brown color of the smaller building. Also, the sign 'Hotel' is beautifully weathered.

I had to remind myself that this isn't a kit; all scratch built. That leaves me somewhere between inspired and frustrated! Glad to see you're back at this one, Karl. I wanna see this and O'Niell's Wheels at the Finescale show in November.

Looks great. Can you expound on your windows - how you do them? Also would be interested in learning more about the chipping paint technique.

Thanks Cameron

Thanks Bryan, some time ago I started trying to add in small details to give a little extra effect, the ripped awning was one of them. I was kinda surprised/disappointed that nobody noticed/mentioned the old turned porch post(Brett's idea) on O'Neills that was holding up the lean-to work shed... oh well.

Thanks Karl.S I appreciate it.

I'll aim to please Dallas, good to have you along.

Doing great thanks Wes, yep it has been way too long.... so have you packed up the surfboard yet to get back to the bench ???

Thanks Greg, glad to read you enjoy them.
I only ever made that mistake once

Thanks Chuck, always great to know you are here.

Indeed Frederick the posts will get some attention and a few tufts. Thanks for the valued input and ideas as always. You know me.... structure first details later... still have some work to do.

Thanks Jerry, it's good to be back at it... yep I'm real pleased with the brown wood, just wish I could remember how the hell I did it, I need a couple more pieces for trim.

Thanks very much Don, I'm also looking forward to reading the comments as it proceeds.

Thanks Bill, I wanna tell you to be inspired, but how ever I word it it sounds big headed, so I'll just say, don't get frustrated....
They will both be at the Expo, heck, one of them might even be finished.....

Thanks Cameron, great to have you along. The peeling paint is copied directly from Chuck Doans method as detailed on his Fotiki site. Which part of the windows do you want to know about?

Got this one off the shelf and back on the bench to be finished off next...
Dusted it off, broke a few things, time to 'git 'er done'
