Thanks George.

Here is a complete progress update on the 7 wagons I have started since 1/1/2021.

I have a long way to go on these models including designing and ordering decals. Painting detail loads installing newly designed couplers and weathering. I might finish in time. :-)

Really stunning work on those ammunition loads Larry. The stripes on the shells are really neat.
Were they hand painted ?

And by the way, over in the Craftsmans Corner official Challenge thread, you've actually updated last years Challenge (2020).

really like how much progress you're making.

Thanks Robert, I fixed the incorrect post. The stripes were hand painted. They are not all that straight but the best I can do. I might try some using decals.

I'm heading to my house for a week and I will be able to pick up the supplies I need. The rest of the detail parts for the seven wagons and some scratch building supplies.

On my next visit to the beach I will bring what I need to attempt challenge 6. Create a sketch of a structure and then scratch build it. 1 Point for simple, 2 Points for complex.

Here is the reference picture with the best guess at measurements.

I will need to get a pencil out to do the sketch.

Larry, don't underestimate yourself.
I've seen worse sketches than that in galleries, and they paid thousands for them.
If you add 50 stick figures you'll get even more.

Do you know what the actual structure is, and are you doing it as a wreck, as per the photo ?

My best guess on the structure is it was some type of control point for coming into the town.
Tax office? Toll collection? Inspection? I will be creating the roof in its damaged state.

Larry,
Cool building. I wonder if someone said, that looks like a good arch to put a railroad thru!
Looks like you're having loads of fun.

Thanks Scott,

First test for the walls.



Let me know what you think before I spend a lot of time on this tedious process.

Larry, you've matched the bricks perfectly. Colours look good.
May just be how you photo is, but are they squared up correctly. To me they seem to be leaning slightly.

Will be interesting how you do the arch.
