Ted, Dave, and Frederic, thanks for your comments.

The building is covered with clapboards and it is a big building so I'll be cutting and
applying clapboards for some time. I have had this "duplicator" for many years and I don't
think I ever used it. It sure came in handy now cutting clapboards from .020 styrene sheet.



Here's a start applying the clapboards. The "bookman" will be coming today for another load
of books so I'll be busy all day. Hope to get back to applying clapboards soon.



Bob

Ted, normally if I needed all those strips it would be a matter of measuring each one ticking
off the pencil marks and then, connecting the dots, using a straightedge to cut them. It's not
only tedious but I know that I am not that good and trying to line up all the pencil marks I
would have variations in the widths of many boards. In this case there was no measuring
except the first board to set up the duplicator and from then on simply running the knife
trough to cut as many nearly exact sized boards as I needed, and I needed a great many. I like
it for that kind of job.

Thanks for the ovation, Bill.

Here's that end wall with the clapboards all in place. I see I need to clean up the sanding dust
along the edges but that just brushes off. I'll build a louvers for that top opening and I think
I'll modify some window sash castings that were left over from the storefront models to fit these
window openings and then add the corners before painting. I'd like to get the graphic decals on
before I assemble the walls.

Nice looking model. Looks real with just enough boards not-quite-long-enough-for-the-full-width. The precision of work you can achieve at this scale is impressive.

Ted, Ray, Mike, and Greg, thanks for comments.

Taking some time out from some real world work I did get the graphics applied, just regular decal work.
