Finished up the three walls of the Office with the wonderfully detailed windows and door.

Nice. I like the slight variance in the siding board thickness.

It's only make-believe

Thanks Robert,

The siding is a wonderful technique Brett, of SierraWest Scale Models, utilizes here where stripwood is individually
(board-on-board) glued over milled clapboard siding. This allows total freedom to detail each board prior to glueing to the clapboard and the pre-milled clapboard keeps the individual boards aligned horizontally.

Karl,

Very effective weathering and as with the others, I also like the boards. Id been puzzling over how you did it and now I know.

Mike

It is a very nice technique Mike. The manufacturer/builder just needs to take into account the extra thickness added to the milled clapboard and of course this is designed right into Brett's kits that utilize clapboard siding.

Ken just finished reading this thread. I like very much what your doing with this build. Excellent work. Love the detail you are imparting to all the different buildings. Looking forward to seeing more as you move along. Keep up the great work.

Karl A., appreciate that my friend.

Thanks Kevin...

I have admired your work here on the forum Terrell and thanks for the kind words.

Hi Mike, I really appreciate your thoughts here.

Thanks Dave and yes it is turning out to be one of my favorites...of course every kit I'm working on seems to take the front seat and becomes my favorite!

Finished up the false front style front wall of the Office. Brett, of SierraWest Scale Models, certainly hit a home run on his design of this wall...between the recessed door, false front, and signage just can't be beat.
