This is from an old retired bricklayer. Your bricks look great. Reminds me of a building I worked on years ago.
You seem to be doing well with the canvas cover. I usually use Kleenex, works well for me.

Larry,

I have been watching intently on the construction of all your work, and it's high time I have gotta say, Wow! I would have a difficult time building one car, and you, well seven ! Your work is truly amazing and a joy to watch unfold. Thanks for sharing.

Your paper bricks look very realistic.

Thanks James, Roland, Scott and Rich.

Here is another of the seven cars I started that is further in the detailing process. I need to apply decals and then chalk and a sealer.



Plus the reference picture I worked from.

Another of the group of seven cars for the challenge. A few more details, weathering, markings and it will be finished.

Thank you - George, Rick, Bruce and Scott.

I am starting to work on some orphans next. I already posted one on my main thread a couple of days ago - the war damaged car. I have a number of maker seconds that need to be made into useful pieces for the RR. I hope to get them all to some usable form.

Hi again Larry,

I must have seen the first few pages of this thread before since I do remembering reading about the painting of the shells ... but thanks for the reminder ... I will subscribe to it now.

The brick building is excellent ... I honestly don't know how you get so much done so quickly ... and the quality of the work is easily museum grade.

Take care,
Rob.

Thanks Rob, the pure fact I am not out of town on business 160 days a year is helping with the current speed. One day I hope some of this lands in a Canadian WW1 Museum.
