Dave, Carl, Chuck, and Ted, thanks for your comments.

Real gloomy here again so I will not be going outside for photos. I did get all the doors made
and installed, steps at the loading docks, and a rail around the little dock at the office door.
I have also made the roofs for over all doors but I still have to paint them before installation.



Dave, please excuse this REALLY crude sketch but I wanted to tell you that I mounted the diamond
snow guards differently on the two structures. On the barn I had drilled a hole into the roof
at each location and glued in a short piece of styrene rod. Then I glued the diamonds onto the
up side of the dowel. On the warehouse I glued short pieces of styrene strip flat to the roof at
each location and then glued the diamonds to the uphill sides. They had all sorts of mounting
brackets and almost anything you come up with will do.

Ted, it's amazing how these coincidences happen, I build a structure named after a friend and
there usually is some relation to the real person that I had not known about. I love it.
Hope you will like this one when it's done.

Bob

Thanks Bob,
I don't like drilling so I'll go with the square styrene option used on the warehouse.

Still too gloomy to get outside for photos. Here's some poor shots to show that I am still working.



I added steps to all loading platforms plus rails to the one at the office door, roofs over
all doors (you can't see them but there are lights under each too), a chimney, a plumbing
vent pipe.........................



also working on some of the interior. here's the plywood rack,

Bob,

That's a nicely proportioned structure you've built. Looks very appropriate for the type of business it holds. I can picture it along a siding with rail delivery at one loading dock and trucks at the other.

With those stacks of high-quality plywood (I'm guessing 3/4") model railroaders will be stopping in to buy materials for benchwork.

Very nice! The platforms and roofs really increase the "eye candy" factor.

Another great structure, Bob. I really like the signage on the building and the snow guard detail.

Bob, looking good! Charlie looks like he got under shelter to stay out of the forecast snow, but no need for the snow guards with last night's few flakes.

Dave, Mike, Ray, Bruce, and Bill, I thank you for your comments.

Bill - That snow missed us just barely to the south. It did leave us with dull gloomy weather
and now it's very windy. I think the weather is conspiring to keep me from photographing outside,
but I still am working on interior details, I have lumber and paint racks in process. I also need to
make some clutter details for the loading platforms.

Sill waiting for the sun,

Meanwhile, here's the small lumber rack and I'm working on the paint rack.

Bob, either I'm going blurry eyed, or your camera is not focusing properly.
Those stacks of plywood sure look like the real thing.

Greg, You must be bleary eyed, that photo is in perfect focus.

Either that or I made it out of focus so as not to show the imperfections.

Maybe I'll take another photo this afternoon.

Bob

OK Greg, I have it figured out. First, here's a new photo of the lumber stack.



The problem was that you have been calling this man Charlie but it's his cousin Larry (Charlie
normally wears a white shirt). Larry put a hex on me.



Still little or no sun but I figured that even a little natural light would be better than flash.

Looking at this using my left blurry eye, and my right bleary eye.
I can just make out that this is yet another beautiful structure from the Amazing Santos!
Bob, you are truly one of the greatest modellers that I know!
