Thanks to all for the nice comments.

Rob, The bricks are straight, measured them at least 5 times. It is some type of optical illusion in the picture. I am still noodling how to do the bricks on the arch as well. My guess is a lot of trial error and bad words will be needed.

Here is a test with the wagon that is under the arch, under the arch.

Larry, yep I've had similar issues with photos appearing to distort. And they say the camera never lies.
I knew it would be correct, cause you do such nice work. it was more just an observation.
With the wagon full of figures, it looks just like the prototype photo.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Larry,
Looks great. Can you put in one or two figures looking back?

Thanks Roland.

Here is an update.






I did run out of the paper bricks so I had to place an order for more. I hope to have new supplies in a week.

I can make a jig for the rafters.

Thanks Carl, Michael and George.

I started noodling the roof tonight George.

Counting every board on the photo. I can only guess the dimensions and try to find strip wood on hand that is close to what I see.

So I got out the my mini axe tonight....

The roof alone is going to be a masterpiece. And strong.

They look very good, Larry.

Seeing those notches, I had a flashback to sitting on the floor building with Lincoln Logs.

Those rafters look like it was a really "fussy" job; nicely done. The structure is going to look amazing when your finished.
