Thanks George, Larry, Bruce, Michael, and Philip.

While I track my inbound bricks from the snowy north I started mode details for the wagons I started earlier.

I am starting to work up the two wagons in the picture. I will figure out how to best recreate the canvas cover on the wagons.

I will also attempt to recreate the wall, track, scenery and a flat of the blown out factory and add it to the layout which would might cover number 8.

Funny looking little loco Larry. Great scene.

For the canvas, many folks use tissue paper. but a lot of the military modellers use tin foil. I've used it for a good representation of canvas tarp.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Larry,
The walls look great! The stones are stacked in your favor.
I like the rafters, nice notches!
It will be interesting how you do the canvas. When I was modeling military vehicles in my youth, I used moistened hand wipes that had been rinsed out and formed, then dried and painted.

I've gotten good results from telephone book paper for canvas, but of course you'd have to paint it... The nice thing is that you can fold and crease it, making it a bit easier to shape as a canvas roof over the cars.

Back to work on the scratch built structure.




I forgot to take a picture of the inside beams painted.

I also made a lot of headway on the roof.




Next the fun part weather the roof them break it up a little and glue on a few hundred broken tiles.

George D, Am I getting close to complex yet on the building?

Larry, could you share the paper bricks manufacturer, and the vendor?

They look great!

You are in the middle of it! That's some fantastic rafter work!

Thanks Carl,
I get the bricks and some other textured paper here. https://foggymountainmodels.com/
Tell the owner Mark - Larry sent you.

The light gray between the bricks is cobblestone paper from MicroMark.

Thanks Philip and George.
