No need to freak out Fred, here's your own words...
The corbels are a little thicker than I intended

You paused yourself even without the peanut gallery saying a word....a true perfectionist you are! Bravo.!

I noticed the corbels too, they really grab hold of your eye. I was waiting to go back to page 1 and check out the prototype before I commented. They do seem rather large.

We've all heard of reverse engineering, I thought I'd try my hand at reverse modeling. My next update will likely be of foam-core and a sheet of cardstock.



Actually, a well respected friend mentioned that they thought the yellow was too yellow, needed to be toned down. I knew this but had been trying to ignore it. In part, it is the yellow it is because I couldn't find anything any closer, in a spray paint, that problem so far still exists. I do have an acrylic paint I will use, hand painting, if all else fails.

Hold it! Are you saying your peeling this structure back to the beginning??

As far as the yellow goes, I also have a yellow project. They ARE difficult.

The prototype does appear to be more of a creamy yellow, but of course thatís in daylight.

No, Carl, I'm not going all the way back to the beginning, it just feels like it.

Nothing at all wrong with yellow, Frank. If there wasn't a prototype for this build I'd be more than happy with that color.

Mike, sitting on that shelf, in low light it looks like the creamy yellow I want. But add any light to it and it turns bright lemony yellow. This thing is a Jekyll and Hyde.

Yellow walls? Looking good to me. You could mist it with a fine spray of Dr. Ben's instant age, similar to the A& I washes... maybe.

Thanks, Rich, but .....

Yesterday I managed to get back to where I was a week ago. And even take a few steps forward.

A house of a different color.

The new yellow looks good and looks right. The corbels look better now that they are white. Or did you make new ones?

Thanks, Mike. They are a newer slimmer version.

I think replacing the corbels was worth the effort.

How did you tame the yellow? Much better.

Corbels too.

Carl, I finally found a paint I thought was a pretty good match. Re-sprayed the whole thing.
