Steve looking good. Weathering will bring out the character of the structure.

Rob the shingle work is out standing.

The front wall of Kate's Kitchen, my second Challenge project, is done. It is now time to glue all the walls together.



BTW,the sheer curtains on the second floor are from used anti-static dryer cloths.

The dryer sheet sheers are a neat idea, Bruce.

Nice work on the shingles Rob.

The company house has some great weathering effects, Mike.

looking forward to the finish seed house, Steve

I finished off my first project for the Challenge:




I added the station name and an outhouse from another forgotten kit.




I'll be starting my next project shortly. I's another kit, but a type I've never built before

Thanks, Glen. Congrats on finishing project #1.

More progress on Kate's Kitchen. It looks like Kate has some hearty food for a cold day.

Looks good, Bruce. Considering the temperatures coming this week in my area, I'll take the Vegetable soup.

Spent the last couple of days painting and weathering the shingles.
Blended several different mixes of mostly greys, with a bit of brown, plus thin black washes, and dry brushing.
I'm going for a fairly heavily weathered look as it's a waterfront structure.

This shot shows the back half done compared to the front half


Some shots taken outside.

Rob,

Excellent weathering. Very skillfully done. Your structure is really going to have that worn waterfront look.

Here's my second project:








I've never built a wooden bridge kit. This will either turn out well and be a complete disaster!

Glen congratulations on finishing your first project. Looks like you picked an interesting project for your next.

Bruce the front wall of Kate's Kitchen looks great. I'll have the beef stew.

Rob the shingles look very good and the weathering is outstanding.
