Thanks guys, all of you. While my model building time will be limited it feels great to get back at it.

Bob, nice to see your work being presented here again!
Looks like a real interesting project, and made even better by having you and Terrell, both building versions of it.
I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with!

Thanks Greg, happy to have you along.

Here are a few styrene masters to be cast in resin. Window sashes, window frame, fashion
piece that goes between the corbels at the roof edge, and two sizes of corbels.

Bill, Ray, Bruce, and Mike, thanks for your comments.

I took a break from making masters and decided to apply the framing pieces that
contain the clapboard sections. When you look at the photo you don't realize how many of
these pieces there are.

They are hard to see in this photo but all are in place and ready to apply clapboards. I
will cut styrene strips for these.



There is a mistake which I did not notice until I looked at the above photo. The two
outer upright strips are too long, they should end at that lower horizontal strip, an
easy fix.

Bob

Bob,
It's so good to have you back modeling again. The window masters are terrific.
Glad your feeling better after your eye operations.

Great start, Bob !!

If you're anything like me you'll make several more mistakes before you're finished.


The molds will certainly help, especially on the corbels.

Thanks Dave and Terrell, good to be posting again.
I cut strips from a sheet of .020 styrene and used them to represent the areas of clapboard
siding. Hard to photograph in white styrene.

And yes, Terrell, I make loads of mistakes. If it were'nt for mistakes I would get nothing done !!

Bob, your front wall is shaping up nicely.
I do some of my best work, the second time around.

This is looking good, Bob! No worries on the rework... you got it on Try Two. With me it's "third time's the charm."

Mostly....

Greg, Pete, and Dave. Thanks for your comments, always appreciated.

Dave, approximately 12 x 22 inches (That 22 should have been 24 and the 12 13 but I shaved it in the effort to
compress a bit to save space.)

Not much to show right now. I am working in two shop areas. I pour resin into the molds I made
from the last set of masters and set a 15 minute timer. I then go back to work on new masters.
When the timer goes off I go out and demold the resin parts, pour a new batch, set the timer and
go back to working on masters.

I know this seem like wasting time on casting parts, I could be way further on with this
build. The savings come later when I use those parts and save tons of build time.

Bob
