Greg,

I am really enjoying your build of this great kit and only wish the kit were offered in O-Scale (1/48th).

Thanks for taking all the photos to date that help to illustrate/visualize what you are doing. The photos along with your explanation of how you did the barn siding are most helpful.

Later, Dave S. Tucson, AZ

Thanks! Kevin & Dave.

Dave, it's a new technique for me.
I noticed that the grain that I applied to the framing wood, became less visible when I stained it with the Hunterline stain.
So I wanted my exterior sheathing to keep that applied grain texture better than the frame wood did.
So that's why I stained it first, then added the graining afterwards.
I think it definitely worked better this way in giving me a more weathered barn look.
Here's a shot of the first wall with all of it's sheathing now in place.




Greg

Greg,

Excellent work with the gentle staining of frame and sheathing, red color, and skillful construction. Did you eyeball spacing the sheathing boards? They turned out straight and even.

The staining and then roughing it up looks like 'the real McCoy'. Nice!

Thanks! Mike & Jim.

Mike, I did eyeball the spacing, luckily for me it worked out at the end of the wall with a full width board.


Jim, I'm really pleased with the results that I got too!

Now that's a barn! Very fine work, Greg. It looks like the ones I see around here in OH.

Greg, if you haven't already done the other sides of the barn, a trick someone showed me to assure the sheathing comes out even at both ends is to do both ends first and then work from one end. If you are off a tiny bit when you approach the far end, tiny adjustments in the spacing of the last half a dozen or so boards will finesse the finish and no one will ever notice the slight difference in the gaps.

Thanks! Mark, Russ & Bill, for your posts & interest in this!

Bill, that sounds like a very good approach to take for a task like this one.
I will give it a try on this second side wall.
