Oh my that is some delicate brick work and very imaginative. How old do you think it is - it's amazing nothing seems to have happened to it exposed to the weather. Thanks for posting it, Bob

Bob, looks like that rail line, hit a brick wall.
Very cool! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Hello guys.............

I check the forum every day and post comments but my model building time has been limited. Hope to
get beck to regular posting soon, it is spring cleanup time in the northeast right now.

Being a terrible photographer, and I know it, I did do a bit of reading in my camera owner's
manual. Here's a couple of photos of my last build, the four stores, at late dusk and night.







Cheers.
Bob

Bob, nice to see you posting again!
Those night photo's look pretty good to me.
And I've never ever thought of you as bad photographer.
Sometimes we are, are own worst critic.
You just keep on doing, what you do so well, building excellent models and photographing them.
Looking forward to your return!

Nice photos Bob. That set of buildings turned out great. I must admit I was a little concerned when I didn't see any posts. I am also looking forward to your return!

Bob, Your photos look good to me. Sometimes I set the camera on manual and just try all kinds of settings. No one ever has to see most of them, but once in awhile something neat happens and I can keep quiet and just pretend it was on purpose :)

Bob,

Photos look pretty good to me. Your scene has a lot of atmosphere. Looks like a nice neighborhood.

Thanks guys.

Still have some outside work to get done but I have been thinking about my next build. I do have
some strange stacks of building materials laying around, remainders of more than 70 years of
scratchbuilding, much of that commission work. Even though I have used styrene for most of my work for
many years I see that I have a bit of Taskboard on hand. Couple that with some thoughts I have about
making a structure using printed brick material and I can see a small brick building coming to the fore.
At this time I do not know what the function of that building will be but that can come later,
I do have a few ideas.

On the subject of printed brick material there are many sources, both paid and free. Some paid
sources are scalescenes.com, ModelBuilder.com, and CleverModels.com. If they do not sell brick
sheets in your scale you can always buy a sheet and print it out in your scale. There are also
many sites that sell but also offer free examples of brick (and other things) all grouped
under "textures". In fact, I get some free from textures.com. No matter where you get your brick sheet,
if it's a download, you can usually buy or download one sheet and then print it as many times
as you need to complete your model.

An excellent site is paperbrick.co.uk. Not only is it free (you can make a donation) but you get
to select many attributes of your brick sheets such as color, size, type bond, headers or not,
mortar colors and thickness, scale, and paper size. This is the site I will be using for this model.

So there you have it, my next build will be sort of an experiment, a small brick building made
from Taskboard and printed brick papers.

More later.

Bob

One other thing I want to try out. A while back fellow forum member Ray Dunakin told how he uses
self adhesive vinyl instead of paper for his signs instead of paper because his models go outdoors
and it's waterproof. Even though my railroad is inside I tried the stuff and I love it and have
been using it for many things. I have decided to try it in place of paper for the brick sheets on
this project. It should work great and make applying large sheets much easier instead of wet
wrinkly paper. We shall see.

Bob

Glad to hear you're enjoying the printable vinyl! In addition to model uses, I just used some to make custom "bumper stickers" to go on my car.
