Thanks, Ted!

Carl,



This is the backside of it, it has less color and more texture. It was 12"x12" and 3/32 thick. They have thicker pieces too. I cut it with a boxcutter, easier when the tile is warm. It can be sanded and painted. And curved if need be. I glued it using plain old Testors model cement. It cost $.60 at Lowe's, not including taxes.

Thanks, Carl, Jerry and Pete !!

The lower courtroom windows are done.




Nothing special just Evergreen Scale Models styrene strips cut and arranged in a way to simulate windows. I was glad to be done with those two. But then I remembered around the right corner of the building is a third one.


And also, the upper windows are done, waiting on the painters.

Your windows are very well done. Same thing regarding the canopy/balcony. (Not to be confused with a panoply of baloney)

Using floor tile is a pretty neat idea. Saying itís easier to work with when warm implies that you warm it somehow. Is that true and how do you do it?

Thanks, Carl !

Mike, I don't normally do anything special to warm it up. What I meant was if it's kept in a storage cabinet or room where the temp is colder it will get much harder. When I'm going to use it I move it ahead of time to a warm location before I work with it. Doesn't take long.

I'm pretty much done with the front wall for now, except for the columns and weathering.




On to the left side wall.

Fred,
Looking good!
The tile is a good idea I'll file away for future work.

Thanks, Dave, Carl and Bill!!

I've always felt that a key to good modeling was to immerse yourself in the project. So, about the time I started this project I received a jury summons. I spent all this afternoon in a courtroom. I didn't get selected yet but I have to go back first thing in the morning and try again. Lucky me.
