Tony ,, I really like what your doing with the roof. Having the edges with angle makes it all work, well done!

Cheers!, Joe

I have a choice now, on the roof support on Sokol's model, I made an alternative for the concrete foundation that supports the roof overhang, and originally I was going to make one like the kit piece (shown) in plaster, to better represent the concrete look. Any thoughts?

Tony,

I think it's a big improvement.

Bob, Philip, Jeff and Mike.

Thank you all for your kind comments, I guess then I have no choice, the new wall it is. I liked it, but it is great to get the opinions of others before I go ahead.

Thank you again.

Hands down, I agree with the others. What a fantastic looking change. Go with your ideas, you never seem go wrong there!

Tony, I think the support may be too luxurious to match the rest of the structure'...I'v been studying, and studying, and studying one more time before commenting.. That is a high priced good looking support wall....Just my HO. Your many respondents say go with it, But I think it's too rich. Good research on the tanks'...and Tar Beach'...

Louis, thank you.

Ted, I do agree with you, but I will be dirtying it up some, add some growing vines, and some vegetation will hide some of it. I'll go ahead with finishing it without attaching, as I did with the shed and skylight until I really liked it. I don't always just go ahead full steam, I mull around the idea sometimes for days or even weeks. Things may change, and I do appreciate your thoughts; another on Facebook had said about the same thing.

We'll see how this progresses. I was going to make another solid concrete wall as well, and compare the ideas, I just hadn't gotten around to that part yet.

I have finished the roof supports, not doing anything to them on color except a strong solution of A/I mix. I have added some 'cement' to the top of the brick columns to encapsulate the post.

I veered away from the .094" stripwood for this wall, going with a beefier 1/8", as I think it warranted it more. When I placed the former against it, it looked a little spindly. I used the .094 on the deck side though, mainly because it was the size of the notches, plus the upper floor weight would look like it could be supported with the smaller ones.

I turned the building upside down resting on V-blocks to work on the installation of the deck side supports. Much easier to do this way, and enabled me to do it in place, rather than make a separate support system and fit it to the building, and having to keep in aligned to the notches in the deck.

I cut the posts to rough length (cutting to size after all is finished with close cutting wire cutters), and placed them in position using scotch tape to hold them in place. I used, not the supplied .094 top piece, but 2 lengths of 2x10's from my stock instead, for the roof side. It not only looks better (in my opinion) but was easier to construct. I also cut the 45 degree supports for the posts, deciding to add some extra at 90 degrees to the posts shown on the instruction sheet. More support.

I had placed two pieces cut to .620" (for my application) to act as spacers for positioning the support.

I have some paving stones from Monster Modelworks, which I will be cutting to size and using for a paved road through there. I don't want to use track here, possibly on the back side (?), not sure yet.





















That's it for now. I think I'll start on doing the base, but I still have a way to go.
