Tell Brett I said hey back.

I am not a member of his SW Forum, so I have no way of communication with him.

here's the first batch of damp brushed siding boards, with three fishermen and a set of windows for color scheme.

i figured i didn't need the drawings in the gazette to do the end wall. it's pretty basic. i started on it this morning. {windows are sitting there to show the color scheme in situ}
my son is an ace on adobe illustrator, so i'm going to have him design some old time bait shop signs for me.




the right end of the "lodge" has a covered deck above it (i'm thinking of making it bar), and i'm going to make that short section a bait and tackle shop. maybe boat rentals too.

thanks jerry. the first time i was exposed to it was on the main building of o'neill's fabricating by sierra west. at first blush i thought brett was crazy, but after getting your fingers chalky and rolling the painted wood around in your fingers, it dirties up great and looks wonderful with old white painted wood. that's the only reason i decided to use it on this model, and i'm glad i did.

Kevin, just thinking out loud here... You might want to stain a few spots of your sub-base with a medium-walnut, pecan or teak stain, particularly on the rear wall where there would be less maintenance. The sub-wall staining would allow you to pull a board away from the wall a bit, exposing the sub-wall coloring. The pulled board or two would add some additional interest for the viewer's eye...

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

kris,
when i get to a spot where i want a gap, i generally hit the subwall with chalk/alcohol. the rear of this monster isn't going to be visibie, but thanks for the idea.
