    It looks very nice, Rick. Did you build it from scratch?

        Rick,

        Your building looks wonderful can you give us some more details on the construction?

          Perhaps someone can point out the thread that shows how to have photos included in threads rather than having to open each one separately? Also photos are supposed to be limited to 80kb.

            Excellent work....nice detail on the door....But, I still like wood better. (Personal preference)

            Interested to see the outcome .....

              Great looking walls Rick!! I really like the way the mortar shows in between the brick coursers!! How bout some details on how you did the bricks and mortar joints. I'm always on the look out for different techniques on how to do it better. Good Job!!!

                  Thanks for the good marks on brick job, I did build it from scratch and plan on scratching all my structrues as most art on market.I used gator board for wall and covered with paper creek brick except arches over windows, for the arches i went to town a took pictures of arches till i found one that work out to the brick color then just tried to balance the color.The windows were scratched useing Grandt as a starting point and adding arch and sill.I'm planning on a removable roof at least half but do'nt know how to keep it to scale as it not a truss type roof , its not got a lot of pitch and has 52 2x12 rafters with sky lights,smoke jackes and full leight ridge vent I'LL get it just have to work it out.As for the 80Kb I was unaware and I though I had camria set up right but being that taking pictures is not my stroung point maybe someone could tell me how to cure the problem.I had my camera format set to shoot at .3 I'm lost as to set kb. Thank you guys

                    Rick, check this thread out to learn how to post pictures so they show directly in the thread: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/t...TOPIC_ID=15110

                    Also, the size of your pictures are fine. They're a little bigger than the suggested 100kb, but they're close enough. Bob should check the size of the last picture he posted in this months photo thread.

                        Hi,

                        I replied to your question in the other thread since I don't model in On30 and missed this thread.

                        As Rick says your pictures are fine and they show to be 640 by 480 pixels which is commonly used by members here as the size for posting pictures.

                        Also you will find that you could even go larger without having to scroll across the screen to see the picture.

                        I agree with Rick, use the thread that explains how to have the picture show up in the thread for you are almost to that point and with a few clicks of the mouse you can do this.

                        I am one of those on dial-up that has problems with large pictures but yours loaded fine.

                            Thanks again for the information I'll read up and on the site so I can be within the guide lines, I'm not making excuses but I'm not the most computer smart guy, just takes a kick now and then. Rick

                              Rick,



                              The other Rick.

                              Glad the problem is fixed and I know how it is to feel frustrated when the computer just does not seem to understand what we are trying to do.

                              As for the pictures as one who is on dial-up the problem isn't always the size of the pictures (I can as I said view yours with no problem and actually up to 150 KB is generally not a problem and your largest is 131KB) but the number posted at one time.

                              While I enjoy seeing the pictures show up in a thread there are times when I prefer the links.

                              If a large number of pictures are posted to a page then for those on dial-up the computer will time out before the page loads completely.

                              So while clicking on each link is somewhat of a pain at least I get to see all the pictures that way.

                              I forgot to mention in all this great looking model you are constructing even if is a bit on the large size for my tastes.
