Where you're at now looks excellent.
The color variation on the outside boards is particularly good.
Call it done for now and add details later as the mood strikes.

Beautiful job on this car Mike.
Coloring I love the way it came out with the light weathering.

I guess the list just goes on because we all love those little details!!

Mike,

I must say having read through your entire thread this morning, for the first time, sorry, I enjoyed myself. More folks should do s-b-s threads, including me, but real life does get in the way. Your work is enlightening and easy to follow, and although you model in a larger scale, it is still excellent. Thanks for sharing your skils with the application of the shingles, painting, and weathering and tips along the way. All good.

Rich

The handled cutter with Stanley blade, is correctly called a WALL PAPER KNIFE. Its used to cut the wall paper at the top where it meets the ceiling. Been using one for years, my favorite tool.

Fantastic build, love it !!!!! Gotta look up the ORGANZA material for the screening in the windows, that is a great touch.

Howdy folks,

Mike, Rick, Jerry, Philip, Rich, Carl, and Mike thanks for your comments.

I had planned to vacation on the coast this week, but an ailing dog kept me home. I was going to paint a few detail castings. Here is a photo of one batch in primer.



The work room partition, clerestory open windows, and structure end doors were installed, but I don't have photos yet.

The dining hall is just about finished except for smoke stacks which are another challenge because of the removable roof. Fun!

Have fun,
Mike

Howdy folks,

Philip, thank you for your kind words about Rose.

Have made a bit more progress:

Large storage room door completed. Mule shoes for handles, but they are fragile and one has moved. Going to use ACC to strengthen them.


Store room interier wall completed.


Clerestory open windows and screens installed in two locations. The screen is on the inside and a metal rod holds the windows open.




That's it for now. Stove pipes are next then the structure will be complete. Then on to details.

Have fun,
Mike

Howdy folks,

Progress made, a bit.

First: Jerry, Philip, Rick, Carl and Michael, thank you for the encouragement.

This week I worked on stoves, chimneys and roof openings. Once again, it is a lot tougher when the interior is furnished.

The first step was aligning the stoves with the smoke stacks. After several fails, I decided to drill holes in the stoves, glue in a guide pins, and use that configuration to measure and cut roof openings. The tricky bit will be deciding where to cut the stacks so that part is attached to the structure and part is attached to the roof.

Here is a photo of the stoves in primer with guide pins, stack in test fits, and primed storm collars and attic insulation shields.


I always dread cutting holes in the roof, but the storm collars cover the holes.


Well, that's it for now. Next up will be installing the chimney stacks with storm collars and attic insulation shields.

Have fun,
Mike
