Looking great, Carl!

Looks like they got rid of all their shorts on that deck. I really love the sarking you can see under the eves. I might have to give that a try.

Cheers, Mark.

Kevin, Jerry, Greg, Frank, Mark, George, Bernd, and Mike thank you very much for your nice comments!

Frank- No base will be provided, that's for the benefactor to provide on his layout.

Mark- Under the eaves is actually the scribed siding I used as roof panels!
As far as the dock "shorts" goes....guilty as charged.

Carl, As Jesse "the Body" Ventura would say, I'm impressed, and I don't impress easily.
Really stunning work. The whole thing looks great, but I'm really drawn to the roof tops.
The chimneys, vents, angles and especially the shingles look so nice.

Regards Rob

My current build.

Appreciate your positive comments Bob, Jim O. and Burley Jim!

Jim O. -To be clear, this project was NOT the kit itself- I scratch built everything (except a few details) from the kits' full scale plans....

I finished the covered walkway, dock and a small canopy roof over the double doors. Ready to assemble all together.

My modeler friends layout has some ties to his past, so he asked for this building to be named after a factory near his birthplace. A sign was framed with the title of "U.S. Mail Bag" . A facility for manufacturing the large white bags for the U.S Postal Service.

In place...

A small shed was called out in the plans. A simple wood frame for some minor protection from the weather.

Situated on the dock itself and built in place, brick oven too.

Till next time....final pix and thoughts
