Bob,

Your sand house looks great. And, you seem to have mastered the art of painting castings.

Mike

Jeff, the light baffle around the roof is a neat idea.

Bob, the sand house is great and the detail work really pops the build.

Added the first floor building extension. Painted barn red and weathered.



Added the storage yard roof. Used a sandwich sheet from Panera to simulate a fiber glass sheeting.



Well, the building, short of a few odds and ends, is finished.



Now comes the fun stuff...the details!
Making a fence inventory, and then putting the building on a base with storage yard, driveway, fencing, ductwork, sign, etc.

See you next time. Dave

Absolutely stunning looking structure build Dave. If you build all of your buildings as good as this, you should hire out!

This build is truly amazing. All that texture is paper? Do you create your own or is that a commercial product?

Dave,

I like the massive appearance you've attained in your model. It looks substantial, as though it was actually built of brick and mortar and wood.

Mike

Bob,

I agree with Jeff, the whole sandhouse is great, but that bench is just awesome.

Great looking sand house, Bob, and that interior detailing is superb.

Dave, you have created a great looking model!

Bruce - Your box car came out quite nice, can't wait to see your weathering.

Bob - I really like the sand platform, is that part of the kit or did you fashion that yourself? At first, spotting the yellow trim color, I thought it stood out too much, but now it compliments the entire structure nicely, especially the two-toned painted door and those wonderful weathered details!

And Greg, A strange structure for sure, but when are you shipping these kits??

Thank you all for your kind comments. They are most appreciated.
On the Bench, I really can't take that much credit for it. I just added legs and painted George's casting.
Rich, The sand platform is just as George designed it for the kit and why I paid 40 bucks for the kits a couple of decades ago.

I had hoped to have had the ladder added by now but harvesting the yards got in the way.

And Dave, Your fence company is looking great. Looking Federalist too.

Rich, thanks for the nice compliment. P.S. to hire out would make it work and not a hobby.

drmsparks, thanks for the comments. All of the main building is paper. The pattern for the brick came from the Deviantart gallery, printed and glued to Canson board. The barn red siding is stripwood.

Thanks Mike, that's a well received comment coming from the man that makes very substantial buildings! I love your work.

Thank you Bruce for the compliment.

Bob, thanks for the compliment on the fence company. I must say this is the first time one of my builds was "looking federalist".

Thanks for the info Dave,

I picked up a color laser printer last year (staples had them on closeout for $99) and have been thinking about trying some work with paper. I'll have to check out the deviantart galleries.

Bob, your sand house operation has turned out quite nicely! Love those FSM details!

Dave, your fence factory looks amazing!
You are building that son of yours a terrific looking layout, one building at a time.

Keep up the great work everyone!
