That looks really good to me, Louis.

Rich, your round garage is coming along nicely. Sorry to hear about your crisis.

I'm just amazed at the interesting projects in this challenge. These challenges seem to bring those out.

I'm just getting caught up on this topic now.
Louis, what a terrific idea...And, you're doing an excellent build. Kudos.
Greg, I'm impressed with how you've worked the window and door entry into that shoe. Very nicely done.
Rich, I really like your garage. Keep it up...

I forgot to comment on your shoe house, Greg! A thousand pardons. Looks like great progress.

I'll just go back to my four-walled structure, now.

As always there is some very impressive work going on in this challenge! I am really enjoying this thread with all the creativity!

I am continuing to work on the Drinkwater place, with the next step to finish the scenery around the garage and then I can finish up the main house.

Mountain goat Greg,
I like that roof on the garage! Well thought out.

First paint color applied. I used Tamiya Color TS-3 Dark Yellow, which my local hobby shop had in stock. I think once a light black wash is applied over this color it will be close enough for what I’m looking to achieve. Of course this pictures are brighter that seeing the Critter in person, so it is hard to see the color match.

As for my own challenge, the creation continues ...

... then painted them silver. Not sure if the catwalk out over the "drain" works, so I am also trying it as the dock.

Thanks, Kyle. Your hydroelectric plant is looking good!

Here is an update on the handcar shed. I assembled the walls. I am starting to work on the roof by creating some drawings. I don't think the drawings in the article are correct, based on some trigonometry rules I applied. So, now I have to work out the dimensions and redraw them on the computer. Not the most fun thing to do.

I’ll be cutting out the windows from the car kit templates, onto plastic windshield film. I had to make a flip over picture of the side window templates, so I could cut and splice where needed.

I have the four sides of my meat packing plant almost ready to assemble.



The four lengths of 8" X 8" bracing extending below the ends act as bracing and as attachment points for gluing sides to ends and foundation to the the base. Some more trim to a couple more of the larger doors as well as additional bracing and the walls will be ready to glue together. Meanwhile I have started the tedious job of painting window castings.

I would think cutting out all those openings would be tedious... but it looks like it was WELL WORTH IT.

Michael,
With all those windows there's no wonder why anyone can't see in, it would take more than a week to wash them!
Great job.
