Dave, look for the artist afg81 in the deviantart galleries. He offers many types of textures.

Greg, thanks for the "amazing" comment. My son's job keeps him too busy to build structures so he appreciates my builds for his layout. It's fun to help him.

Well, my boxcar project now has a name and is done. You and I might call it a junk yard, but don't let Sal hear you say that.

After checking in I see a lot of great looking projects coming close to the end build.
Bob your sand deck, house and work bench looks fantastic. I'm sure your detailing will make them even greater looking.
Great looking shoe diorama Greg. Rich sent a picture of a Circus wagon of a shoe, I'm thinking after seeing your build, I'd love to make-up that wagon.
Nice looking structure Dave.
Great mix of items for your Sal's S&S! I also like that ramp as Bob pointed out.

Bruce,

It's too high class to be a junk yard. Sal must surplus and salvage only the best.

Very nice.

Mike

Thanks, Lou & Mike. I've always wanted a junk salvage yard on my layout, and this gave me a way to do it.

Bruce,
Your salvage yard is timeless! It would work for anyone to make one for their layout. Older themes just use an older boxcar design.
Well done!!

Louis, thanks for the shout out!

Hi everybody,

This has been one of those weeks that seems to come with every model: repetitive tasks that really require keeping an eye on the target as motivation. Every day during lunch I cut and installed glass in the painted window frames. Then, home from work, a few rows of Rusty Stumps shingles.

The results with shingling completed and a few windows installed out of 31:


I also built the large canopy over the loading dock, which will probably be added last:



Finally, the skirting was added to the back lean-to.



At this point I am planning a ramp up to the door . . . maybe. I might just do a platform and wait until the building is on my layout before deciding on a ramp.

Mike

Mike,
Probably seems like an inch at a time but the building is sure looking good!

That turned out great, Bruce. Looks like Sal has sold out of his junk, though.

The shingling looks great, Mike.

Nice work, everyone. My focus has been elsewhere, but with a snow day I decided to pick up an old scratchbuilding project: A B&M-style Boxed Pony Truss road overpass. I did the research and started work in 2000, then got distracted in 2001 and left the mock-up in place till now, loaded with the packages of stripwood and my design sketches: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=48622

Ted, thanks for the compliment! I'm adding the finish detail to really accent the build. Need a few more days.
