        • Thanks guys. I usually make all the details then move them around until it works for me then glue them down.

            • Someone will have some sweeping up to do. :-) I never get tired of seeing your scenes develop.

                • I did not want to put a wall on the end of the addition. It is the first thing anyone will see when walking into the train room. Instead I went with a rolled up canvas that the little people could roll down when they had the heater lit. It was pretty simple, just a 4x8, some string, and a Kleenex.

                  • Roland that was a great idea; it doesn't detract from the scene and is plausible.

                      • Roland as usual, the canvas looks good.
                        My only question is how do the LP roll it up?
                        Might be easier for your little guys if it were hung like a curtain and pulled open from the middle.

                          • Thanks for the comments.

                            Rick. I never thought of that. As with most of my models, it doesn't have to work, just look like it might. I guess I will build them a ladder and stock the fridge with beer, maybe they can figure something out.

                            • Roland,

                              Very clever; I like it.

                              Once you've built the roof, you can claim that it hides the mechanism for raising and lowering the canvas. On the other hand, you don't have to explain anything at all. Just tell people to have a beer and chill.
