Michael nice clean work; great craftsmanship! This should look great in your new area. Nice to see someone modeling a gone-by-era. I'll have to follow along on this one.

Looking very nice, Mike. Looks like it has a pretty good sized footprint.

Many thanks, Scott, Larry, Carl, Chuck and Louis.

Yes, it is a large building, 40í by 50í. The prototypes tend toward the large size, often compressed in model form. Itís going to be fairly prominent in my scene and Iím therefore trying to do a neat job of it.

Iíve added supports for the roof and light-blocking walls and ceilings:



Ready for the roof.

It looks like you have some good gluing surfaces as well as support for the sub-roof, Mike.

Bruce,

Yes, I like lots of bracing and glue surfaces, as you know. In my early days of scratchbuilding I was not so careful; itís disappointing to complete a model and a corner of the roof lifts off. Additionally, many of my scratchbuilds are for our club and buildings need to be bulletproof, especially those on modules.

I tend to save the eave trim for last, after the roof is in place. That way I can hide any problems with the roof :-) :-) I like that ledge for the rafter bracing, I think I'll steal that idea.

I think That's a good habit to have. The model is looking solid but also "squared" nicely.
