Dave,
At first glance of earlier pictures, I was thinking you were just making a mockup structure. I really like the way the structure looks now. Although individual bricks would work and would look super nice, if done that way, the rest of us could catch up with you.

Mike...Thanks, the large industrial windows help change the building from a residential look to a business look.
Rich...Glad you like the build. I'm in a lazy funk so individual bricks are for the future.
Jeff...Thank You, I hope it continues to improve.
Greg...Thanks, still have a long way to go!
Bob...Glad you like the build. I'm going to borrow the elevator idea from your Graves build and place in the extension wing.
Railman...Thanks and I am enjoying your sandhouse build.
Ted...Thanks for the nice comment. Canson Board is illustration board used for ink, markers and colored pencil drawings.

Dan,

Very nice group of buildings. I am particularly intrigued by the consumers fuel building and I think you are doing a great job as well.

Mike

Thanks Mike,

I'm not too happy with the spacing on the 'planks', as they are WAY overscale for an N scale model, but I'm having an insane amount of trouble finding small enough scale lumber in the UK, to the point where I've ended up getting some 1/32" thickness basswood sheet and am cutting my own stripwood from it. :(

Nice construction Dan. Cutting your own N scale wood is no picnic'..Buildings are looking good. I think the depot needs some new shingles'..Great weathering job'..

Cheers Ted. The shingles need more work, I just gave them a quick stain to get rid of the white in all the cracks. I've got to paint all of the structures eventually but I'm going to get them built and stained first. :)

Wow, I have A LOT of catching up to do! And, I continue to enjoy everyone's projects. I don't want to slight anyone by singling any out. But, WOW! There is a lot of good work.
