As I mentioned in my initial post, the pump house will come from the new Rusty Stumps Green Valley Pump House Kit.

Here is a sampling of what is in the box. The sub-walls, floor, sub-roof panels and brick outer wall panels are all laser cut. There is a little stripwood for trim, and a number of nice 3D Printed Detail Parts.

I have gotten all the drywall installed and final door and window opening determined.




All openings have been sanded to fit all the doors and windows.




Next, I need to determine paint colors and coordinate those colors to the total final look, before actual painting begins. When I construct scratchbuilds, I do not make mock-up buildings. I would rather spend my time in actual construction, than waste my time building two look=alike models. Maybe that's just me. Also, if a mistake is ever made, rather than scrap that, I keep it. You never know, those mistakes turn out to be good sometimes. Gives me another way to make what I originally wanted, somewhat better.

I will be working on making the interior walls that will be glued to the inside of the outside walls at a later time.


Thanks for looking and all of your great comments.

Rich

Looking good Rich. You're moving right along. What, the wife off shopping or something.

Shopping?? No Bernd, she always makes me drive.

Don't yell too loud in here, or you'll wake her up. I hid them, but she has found the pencils and is making my "honey-do-this (or you'll have to cook) list" a lot longer than what it originally was.

Looks good Rich, you should have your project done in no time

I lost patience with the mail system and dug out my old Badger spray gun





It did the job, spraying all the red but it ran though 3/4 of a jar of Model master caboose red doing the doors, windows, stripwood and details. My usual airbrush would have used 1/2 of that.









After the red paint had dried I scraped the raised framework parts of the door with a razor blade back down to the green plastic for a bit of contrast. Okay I didn't think of this myself, it's in the instructions.
I did accidentally scratch some of the door panels but again that's some pre-weathering.





I installed the windows and doors and added 'glass' clear styrene on the larger windows, liquid glass on the smaller.
I also found that the garage doors were a bit longer than the walls so when the glue was dry I sanded them flush.

No. I doubt that will happen any time soon Glen.
It takes a lot of thinking to get things done these days. But you won't see an integrity motors sign on my garage. Those colors were way too bright and yours seem just right.

Glenn,

That old air brush did pretty good. Colors look great.

Rich, I really like the looks of your building even at such an early stage.

Glen, youíre using classic colors.

Michael, thanks for your comments and continued following. It is a very early stage, as nothing will be colored until I get to the interior framing. I'm hoping to achieve almost the same colors that Chuck Doan used on his diorama. So this will be a match, but in miniature as his is O scale.

Good progress, Rich and Glen.

I got the sub-walls on the Pump House assembled. I used a Sepia colored PrismaColor Marker to take care of the interior.

Bruce,

Thanks for your compliment.
I see you used the markers vs other means of weathering the interior. This looks good to me and a quick way of doing it. I have been afraid to do that until now. Perhaps that is because it may color some part darker than I want. Good one!

Rich

I see Rich and Glen are moving right along and Bruce is off to a good start. I'm enjoying watching other guys work.
