Wow Norman, I hadn't noticed the rear vestibule until you have painted it. That sure is going to be a very unique and distinctive locomotive once you have her finished up. Congratulations on such a creative project build'..Very nice work'.


So, Mike, when do you think I'll be able to pick up some wholesale rib eyes'...

Michael. really stunning structure.Nice the way you've offset the side bit to give a bit more character. And the roof is great.

That is really nice coloring, Rob.
I'm right behind you but taking a slightly different path.

I assembled the walls to my structure yesterday. It spent the night clamped together so the glue set up well. on a smaller structure like this I find its' better to assemble the walls, then paint so the color will blend in around the joints.

I like how the back wall turned out. once it's painted you probably won't even notice the joints.

I was going to open the roll-up door but decided against it. With the building 3-4 feet away from the front of the layout, it's more of a background structure.

Rob,

Thank you. "Stunning" is pretty strong for a vernacular building like this. It pleases me you see it that way. Incidentally, I have the advantage of seeing an insurance map that shows that odd little side bit; the shape is not my invention. Reality is stranger than fiction.

Your own building is coming along nicely. You display a lot of patience painting all that brick wall.

Mike

Glen,

Your building looks very solid. Having that blank wall makes a lot of sense even if more work.

Mike

@Michael,jbvb, Bob, Jim, Guff, Chuck & Ted - thanks for the nice comments

Started with coloring the roof & lower part of the pilots using light black to reduce the contrast to the bright red.







Regards
Norman
