Dave, I'm very honored. Excellent workmanship on the fit and finish.

But you never know what I'm feeding you.

Thanks all for commenting on the Palmer build.
Bob, is it a decaying smell?

George, give the wall finish a try...it's easy to do.

Jim, I didn't think about the smell...you and Bob think alike.

Greg, the next one is coming soon!

Carl, daylight photos bring out the true color and as your photos show the proper placement with natures background really make the builds look real.

Ray, good to hear from you...thankyou.

Mike, you're making my head swell but the comments are quite appreciated!

Ted, thanks and happy holiday to you and your family...stay safe!

Robert, please share your experience when you try the techniques.

Bernd, only beautiful to lovers of dilapidated structures...welcome to the dark side.

Frank, much appreciated and I'm honored to place
the build dedicated to you on the Hard Times RR.

Jerry, not Frank, nah!

Dave,

Sorry I'm just getting back to your build, I fell asleep and in the front row too! Next time, prop me up against someone, and when they move I will be awake.
You have done a wonderful job on the feed store and silo, and managed to work out the querks. I would echo the statements made by others that it is a fantastic build. The crackle paint and rustic look make this special. Looking forward to another of your great builds.

Rich

My next build for the Hard Times Rwy is named after the forum member we all know as BurleyJim. Jim and I both joined the forum in 2014 and throughout those six years Jim has supported me with encouraging comments about my builds. With all of Jim’s railroad projects and side hobbies, I figure he needs his own store to buy hardware and electronics at cost.
JIm, the building is intended to be an old, weathered brick, fixer upper called BURLEY JIM - HARDWARE and ELECTRONICS.

The building construction consist of paper bricks glued to foam core walls with Elmer’s clear glue.



The building construction consist of paper bricks glued to foam core walls with Elmer’s clear glue. The brick paper covers the window openings previously cut into the foam core, then when the glue dries, the brick over a window opening is cutout. The top window shows the cutout 1/4” smaller than the window opening. The corners are cut at 45 degrees, glue applied to the back and then folded into the head, jamb and sill as shown in the bottom window.



Any white shown when the brick sheets butt together will be colored with paint or black ink.

Assembled the walls using foam core cut for corner bracing and alignment.

Dave, another great build happening. And nice that it's a tribute to another of our wonderful Forum members. Jim is an excellent modeller, and always giving good advice.
I'm looking forward to this one.
The "paper' bricks look excellent. Who makes them?


Regards Rob

My current build.

Holy Smokes! Thanks for the honor. WOW, you know I'll be following this one as well. I can't wait to see how you de-clutter the interior.
