Thanks Bill, I may try a few of those. I really like that last one but have no idea of where I could ever use them.

Bob, you'd probably have to model the Canadian Parliament complex or a maple syrup sugar house :) Maybe Greg would know best :) But that one was included just for fun.

Bob, your shingle samples look great. I think those automated cutters excel on jobs like that.

Good luck with the eye surgery. I fully understand about the domino effect when changing an appointment.

a rag man wagon end of 1941






Very nice wagon, Bob. And coincidently I happen to be working on a Shorpy project right now.

Well Terrill is indeed working on a "Shorpy" project right now, an old tenement building
in Massachusetts. He is doing a terrific job of it in 1/48 scale and you can follow his
progress at

http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=50636

I'm doing the same structure in 1/24 scale and it should be interesting to see how two
scratch builders use different methods to arrive at model of the same structure in two
different scales. Mine will be a LOT SLOWER than Terrill's due to a shortage of model
building time.

Here's the photo that got us both started.



I think Terrill is making a full building but that would be way too big for me, I will be
making it as a semi-flat, maybe one window deep. We both decided to make the model to
just include two bays, the actual structure was longer than that, maybe twice as long.

Thanks, Bob!! I'm really looking forward to watching your approach to this. It should be fantastic in 1/2" scale.

Here's the start of my new structure. It is cut from foam core and since I like to work details
in styrene I skinned the foam core with a sheet of .010 inch styrene.



As is my usual practice, I am looking at the photo and making a list of things for which I
want to make styrene masters so that I can make molds and cast them in resin. My list is pretty
long (windows, doors, corbels, etc.).

Bob,

Two different approaches to modeling the same prototype! This is going to be fun.

You’re off to a great start.

Mike

Well Bob there is nothing better than a new set of eyeballs'..I am so happy to see you building again. And what an interesting project to boot. You and Fred, building a tenement in respective scales is fascinating and going to be exciting to watch each of you perform your magic'..for the audience.
