Thank You, Håkan & Chris, I just reviewed the tread myself the other day as I contemplate which colors to use on my next project; that little station at Beaver Jct., the mock up that you see in the background.

Bob,
I really like the photo of the barn you posted. IMO it has "character", just enough different from a plain barn to stand out without looking out of place. Your model is looking great so far, I'll be watching your progress!

that barn sure looks good with lots of character!

I saw the new movie The Homesman the other day and apart that it was a interesting movie it had some great scenes with a lonely hotell on the prairie and a prospering village. The buildings paint schemes looked very realistic and from the period. Made me think of your buildings Bob.

Your barn looks suitably decrepit. I like that you were able to get consistent color between the wood siding and the windows, which I assume are styrene castings.

Thank you guys,

Håkan; I'm not familiar with that film but if it's not a Sergio Leone movie that could be a good thing. Hollywood often got it right after costuming the main caricatures.
Edit; I just watched the movie's trailer. They did a good job. Even got the windows right. so Thank you very much!

Mike; the windows are styrene, Campbell (de-eared) and Ticky. I just primed them in grey and used the same craft colors that I used on the siding.

Ted ; I saw your comments in both treads, Again thank you.

Bob, that is a different looking barn. Looks like someone converted a store, because of the false front and windows, into a barn. Don't get me wrong as I like it.

Bob,
I took a few minutes and read thru the entire thread. I hadn't realized that the mill was actually an adaptation of a Campbell waterfront kit. It screams grist mill at me so loudly I would have sworn you scratch built it from a prototype photo. This scene with the mill, barn, and that beautiful house look great together. I cannot wait until this scene is finished.

Thank you Phil.

Here's the structure, purpose and location yet to be determined that I built with the parts that were suppose to be used to build the freight house of the station;

I don't if I like the roof finish yet. I think my dry brush was yet a little wet. Here is the station's "Comfort" station that will actually be located about 100 feet down the hill in Miller's slough behind the Community/school/church building;


Next will be a small but upscale cottage for the slough using some left over pieces from the station and my other scrap boxes.

'Comfort' station has the look of needing a new roof soon. In fact the whole structure looks pretty sad!
