Bob, now I know why they call it a bank barn.
Yours looks like a million bucks already!

Wow! Can't wait to see it set into the scenery and weathered a little. Won't be long now, at the rate you're going. You've really made good time on this project. (Or maybe it just seems that way because my own projects are stuck in low gear these days?)

Greg and Ray, thanks much for your comments. Here's a few quick flash photos just to show you
where I'm going with this. Lots of work to do yet.

Hay there, Bob, that is a well cared for barn! But with that lush grass, have you changed your mind about setting it in a winter scene?

Yes Bill, lots of things entered my thinking here and I had to opt out of the winter scene.
Eventually I will be adding some light weathering but a well cared for PA German Barn is not an
uncommon sight.

Cheers,

Bob

Bob, beautiful work! I love the snow guards. A nice touch rarely modeled but adds a lot. And this stonework is awesome. This structure has a lot of character!

Bob, winter is way too long anyways!
Your barn will look fabulous no matter what season it's in.

It sure looks like it would be a nice comfortable habitat on a cold snowy winters day in between farm chores'...Looking excellent Bob'...

Mark, Pete, Greg, and Ted, thanks for posting.

I have finished the grass and done some subtle weathering, so subtle that I'm not sure it will
show in the photos. I streaked the roof, dusted and dirtied the lower parts of all doors, and
added a worn look to all siding planks, especially the lower portions. Although there is
still work to be done making the grass look better, I am going to let that go for now.

Will try to take some photos and post them later today.

I will be checking in every day but there will be a slight intermission to my model railroad
model building. Revell has just released a brand new kit of a C-54 and it looks fantastic. We had
one in our squadron when I was in the Air Force and I just HAVE to take the time to build one and
paint it the way ours was done back in the 1950's.

Cheers,

Bob

Bob,

This sounds like a Plan, especially if there are photos involved. C-54s are cool....

Bob, I hope your not planning on doing any barn storming with this C-54.

Pete and Greg, thanks for posting.

Pete - I don't like to clog up a Model Railroad Forum with model aircraft photos.

Greg - HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
You always make me laugh.

Here's a few outdoor shots around the barn. Charlie visits in the first one and the last three
feature the plow horses that I presented in vol.1, page 12.

Bob -- That is absolutely gorgeous! I can easily picture gift shops all over PA wanting to order dozens & dozens, for both the tourists and the locals. One of those and a funnel cake -- and my "visit" to PA is complete! Wonderful.

Cheers,
Dallas

Quality craftsmanship with a sense of humor!
