Your photo gives an impression of the size of the model.

The porches look nice and straight.

the walls are all cut and look like a perfect fit. (the balcony support posts have not been cut to the correct length yet) i'm going to hold off on cutting the rough openings for the doors and windows until i get the 2000 nov/dec issue of the narrow gauge and shortline gazette (should be here on the 19th) because the drawings that i have have some serious shadows hiding the numbers on the scale rulers that were a part of a photo of the article plans. i started laying out the first floor windows yeterday and by the time i got to the third one there was a discrepancy, so i'll just wait for the issue to arrive and then lay them out. starting on the 21st i'm off work til jan 6, so i should be able to get quite a bit accomplished during that time (depending of course on the wife cuz she's off during the same time).

i ran out of 1x8s after graining, detailing and staining the ones i had in stock (about 6 dozen 8" sticks), and i can't cut the windows/doors until i get the backissue of the gazette i ordered from amazon. i have another bottle of silverwood on the way, along with a micromark mitre box and saw (the nice one),5 packages of 1x8s, and various other sundries. i thought i'd post a perspective shot with a bic lighter and a one foot ruler in front of it:

Kevin, your front porches already look great, up against the walls that are taking shape behind them.

Kevin,

It's all looking very nice. I like the varied degree of weathering you applied to your lumber. And good news on shipment of more wood. These board on board projects keep the lumber mills in business.

Mike
