Karl- I'm impressed with the awnings, and even more that you are up and at this early. I'm always reluctant to put on awnings because they cover up so much window details, but somehow in O it seems OK. You guys have a green beer on me today!

What did you make the roof and awnings out of? Looks great! I just got a big order of Sierra West O scale kits in today and I can't wait to try some of your methods on them!

Thanks Mike, Bob and Bryan.

Bryan, the roof is copier paper, the awnings are file hanger card, slight texture but not too much.

Hi Karl,
Good to see you back at this build.
Here is a detail shot for those windows.

You must be needing sun glasses by now.

Very nice Karl.

Nice straight lines, everything perfectly square, the tar paper folded nice and evenly - these are the sorts of things that take a model to the highest level IMO. No matter how rundown a model is to look when finished, certain things should always be done right. It will be a real show stopper when finished.

Depending on how far you want to take this (I chose not to do this on my last build) those deck posts would likely have two bolts attaching them to the joists in the prototype - especially on the upper deck.

Cheers, Mark.
