Kevin, I'm impressed with all the work you're putting in on this model. The balcony looks especially nice. the very fine balusters are well done.


Regards Rob

My current build.

thanks bob. oddly enough, that's what i started this project with. i'm pretty amazed the balcony works haven't come apart with all the handling they've had. i was constantly moving it out of the way. not anymore...... :)

a bit more roofing progress, until i ran out of shingles. (i just ordered another package of them.) the area at the bottom of the roof panel with no shingles is where the balcony roof will be tying in to the main panel. you can't really see it but there's a strip of paper painted aged pewter (to resemble lead) under the last row of shingles that the tar paper on the balcony roof will wedge up underneath it, to represent flashing.
i'm getting closer....
(i forgot to add the picture)

I'm considering this part the home stretch on the structure.

Just in time for ski season.

I think I'm gonna buy a cheap airbrush.

There's no such thing as a "cheap" airbrush. There are only good ones and bad ones.

Kevin,

I thought this was done last summer. Has looked good to me.

Use your 40% coupon at Michael's or Hobby Lobby for the airbrush. My trusty Paasche H1-H3 kit has served me well over 40 years.

for all intents and purposes this monster is finished! i just have to do a little re-gluing, glue the balcony roof in place (after minor trimming), add the ridge cap, and finish the foundation rear wall and it's all done. norton's fish camp took me 14 months to build (not working on it every day).




now it's on to the other buildings that are gonna be on the diorama, and then finally...scenery.

Fantastic! You'll have to haul 'the monster' outside in spring a little green background to get final photos. A project this long would wear me down. But, your tenacity has produced one great ride for us. Thanks Kevin.
