Dave, the outdoor photos really bring your Burley Jim hardware to life.
The only thing that stands out to me, is you don't have window sills.
You have wonderful looking lintels, but alas no sills.
I think I've had this conversation with you before about those.

From normal viewing distance that "printed paper brick" looks very real. Nice job Dave.

George, Jim, Mike, Bob, Greg, Frank, Carl and Bruce...Each of you are very special and I really appreciate your wonderful comments. Thanks for following along!

Jim, I enjoyed building Burley Jim Hardware and Electronics and now I have one more building named after a forum friend. Each time I look at my dedicated buildings they remind me of each of your special skills and generously shared forum projects and advice.

Greg, I missed the sills again! I did set the window into a flashing pan sealed to the brick so hopefully it will do the job for Jim.

Looks Great Dave. The shots taken outdoors, really show it off so well.
You could always still add the sills, just strips of card, or not bother.
The photo used for the interior makes it look so real. Plenty of depth.


Regards Rob

My current build.

The third building is Noah Leekes Plumbing (No Leaks).
The building is constructed of foamboard, however instead of paper siding I use 1/32” x 1/4” bass wood strips.
The strips are stained with alcohol and black ink and fastened to foamboard with Aleenes tacky glue.
A pounce wheel is used to represent nail holes and heads.
Added notches and loose siding to represent age and neglect.
Windows are balsa wood strips and Rusty Stump sash sprayed with dullcoat to indicate dirty glass.
Curtains are yellow colored tissue paper.

That looks fantastic, David! The siding is extremely realistic, like it hasn’t seen a paintbrush for many years, if ever.
