Fantastic! I like the (deliberate) imperfections in the clapboard siding. It's a subtle way of showing the building's age without a lot of weathering, and it looks much more natural than if you'd used a commercial, molded sheet.

Pete, Dave, Ted, Bill, Ray, Greg, and Jerry, thanks for the nice comments, much appreciated.

Ted and Rich, here's a vintage (1941) Boston Red Sox baseball cap. It's hollow like a real hat,
made from heavy aluminum foil. The "B" is a photo of the real one. You can't see those little
white lines with the naked eye.



There is no way I could get under that roof at the doorway to carve away some of Rich's hair to
fit the hat so I have him taking a break, holdnig he hat at his hip

The Red Sox cap really caps off your model.

Nicely don, Bob! That cap is perfect, and the punsters have beaten me to the good ones, so I'll just "like" this one!

Creative use of the aluminum foil to create the desired detail. Something for us to take note of and learn from. Well done.

Thanks to all the "cap" punsters, I should have seen it coming.

KP, I hope I didn't confuse with the aluminum foil material. It is thick aluminum foil, perhaps
better called aluminum sheet, sold in craft shops for tooling and embossing.

Bob, looks like I'm late to the pun party, that's going on here.
So I'll just say that's a great little tip using the aluminum foil for the cap.
Looks like you pulled that trick out from your magic modelling hat.

Well I guess I'm really late! The cap is fantastic as well as the figurine. Thanks Bob for letting me live on your layout.

I was searching the web this morning looking for examples of
brickwork and stumbled on this.............................





It has nothing to do with what I was looking for but isn't it interesting for train fans?
