Looks great Bob, but it must be a very early episode of This Old House, everything is black & white :)

bob, you are the master of styrene construction.

if you suck at playing the trumpet...that's probably why.

Looking great !! Out of curiosity, how do plan on addressing the bricks on the foundation? I would have thought you would have worked them in to the master.

(I don't know why bricks are on my mind. )

Thanks guys, all of you, I appreciate your comments.

Terrell- bricks have been on my mind too. I have a couple of different styrene brick sheets I
could use but I have been favoring using some nice old bricks I found on the web and printing
them on self stick vinyl. I saw that you are sticking on individual "bricks" which is great.
I have done something similar cutting "bricks" from styrene strips. I guess I can kick the can
down the road all he way up to the point that I want to apply paint to the structure.

Bob

Bob,
I see you have no problem after taking a "vacation " from modeling by the great work you show here! It is also nice to see the same building built by two modelers who can end up with similar buildings using different approaches.
Continuing to follow your progress in awe!

Terrell, Karl, Ray, Ted, Mike. and Rick, thanks again for your comments.

Here are a few part "in progress". The decorative parts around the entrance, the
wall of the entrance (doors are castings), and the side walls. A word about those side
walls. If you remember I was going to make this build a simple flat. I then changed my
mind to get a little depth. I settled on modeling the side walls deep enough to
include the first windows. Most likely a waste of time but it will make the roof a bit
easier to do I think.
