Thank you Jim, Louis, Jerry, George, Frank, Kevin, Jim O.& Dave G.

Glad it isn't just me concerning the "yellow".

But Frank, it's your favorite?

Carl,

Thatís going to be a truly beautiful station. You picked out a very nice shade of yellow. I agree that yellow can be very unexciting or unpleasant. You appear to have avoided that problem.

I like the dark window sash. Thatís historically accurate for many buildings in that period. Like you, I prefer castings but the layered laser cut windows have the advantage of enabling a sash color different than the window trim. I only discovered that a short time ago.

Mike

Appreciate your comments Mike and Bob.

Mike- The color scheme to my eye is quite "aggressive". The dark window sashes may hide the intricacies of the 15 pane windows I've had made. I hope they don't fade into oblivion.

However, I suppose I could install some very light colored window shades to show them off...

Carl, shades would be very period-appropriate.

I like the colors. Anything but green is my motto. But, to be accurate to my time period I must use greens. I'm enjoying watching your fine work. It's going to look super.

Learned some new assembly tricks there Carl. Great method of layout and assembly.

One nice thing about proto free lancing is you can pick your own colors. I do like the color though.

Nice work so far Carl. I too, like using chipboard for walls, very sturdy. Your window and door openings look good. Can't wait to see them in. Good work.

Thanks Rich, Fred and Ted.

Fred- Indeed, if I use yellow again, I shall need some therapy.
