Outstanding work. I like your ingenuity in making the various brackets.

Mike

Thanks, Bill, Ted, Ray and Mike and others I'm sure I've missed, unintentionally.


Next I made the stoop. It's made from vinyl floor tile, foamcore, card stock and cardboard.





It's not attached yet, I need to get the foundation done which I can't do until I get the walls put together. At this point I have no plans for detailing the rear wall.


I then decided to paint the front wall. I used the gray primer I had on hand thinking the color really didn't matter, it was a darker gray. But after looking at it a while, it did matter. So the next morning I went and found a lighter gray.



It still needs to be weathered, along with the stoop.

Fred,

What is the reasoning for choosing so many different paint colors for the front façade? Are you planning on layering them to achieve the same colors in the prototype picture? Just wondering...overall nice work so far, and....looking for "pointers"!

Thanks, Bob !!

Rich, there's a very good reason for the multi-layers of paint. Poor planning on my part. I painted it the tan color for any wood that may show through the paint. But the prototype has very little "peeling" paint, except maybe around the doors, just a lot of "dirt". I could have skipped that first layer I think. The second layer of paint was because I painted it a color I didn't like. So a third layer was added. That will be the final coat of paint, I hope.

Ok, the left and right end walls are done and the windows are built and installed. I'm currently working on the windows for the front wall. There's some gaps around the windows so when I get all of the windows installed I'm going to build an O scale caulk gun.





The windows are made from .030x.040 and .020x.030 styrene strips.

You’ve really captured the look of the prototype. Good choice in window sash color too.

Mike

Looks great Fred. Do you use a jig to build your windows?

Mike, the color of the sashes were a brown I had on hand. This time it worked out.


Ted, windows always fiddle with me.


No jig, Carl, since I don't care how carefully I measure and cut the openings they are not going to be all the same. So they are custom made for each opening. And even then some fine tuning may be needed to fit them.

Very nice work, especially those windows. Windows are fiddly enough in 1/24th scale!

YEOW!!! You are putting me to shame, Terrell.
I'm still plowing along with getting the front
done and you also have the sides done. I may have to throw in the towel.

You are doing great and this is looking better all the time. I like what you did with
the sides but I think I will have to limit mine to maybe one window to keep it shallow.

Cheers,

Bob
