looks like another great project!

Good looking projects making great progress in this build challenge. I'm liking it.

Rich,

Like that extra little top on the roof. Makes for a great handle to look inside. Nice job.

Bernd



Bernd,

When I posted a segment of my model this morning, I forgot to mention, that occasionally my wife will enter my workbench area while I am constructing something. She looked at my garage model last night, and said "Oh, what a nice little jewelry box you have made for me!" Then she saw the other side with the two garage doors.

You all are making such fine progress and I just started.
The Sand house is the first to be built.
Here are the four walls, exterior view;

I not sure of my color choices. I might change them.
Here's a view of theinterior sides;

and the interior of the doors which are metal casting that I bombed with Walmart gray primer,gave a coat of light A&I and then stained with some Floquil Walnut stain in that order. I like how they look;

I have been busy finishing up a pre-challenge build. At the same time I have been slowly working on three Sylvan vehicles for the challenge.

Here is a progress shot.




Now that the pre-challenge build is done (the Wintersrun Tower by Micro-Scale Models), I can finish up the Sylvan cars and pick another Challenge project to work on.

The window plastic windshield film, and exhaust pipes have been added to the Railcar Critter, and this project is coming to an end shortly. Iím trying to decide on if I should make wheel well fender skirts, or door covers for storage on the open wheel well sections. That is still up in the air. "What say you". Open for suggestions.

Rich, I guess you'll be building a jewelry box now. I can't figure out which challenge category it will fit into though.

Bob, I'm going to enjoy watching your project taking shape.

Bruce, the coupe is my favorite of the three. You'll have to park it next to your completed tower.

Louis,

Really looks nice with the paint and decal. I like the color you chose, railroady yet noticeable.

Mike

Dave,

A fence company. Such an interesting choice. How did you happen to picket?

Mike
