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.
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.
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.
