    Roland, I profusely apologize for temporarily hijacking your thread.
    For the record, I think Roland is one of the best modelers on the forum and have always been very complimentary about his modeling.
    My comment about the canvas was not done as a criticism about his modeling.
    It was merely meant as a question of why he did it the way he did and offered an alternative.
    The way it is now is perfectly fine with me and nothing needs to change.

    Again, sorry Roland.
    Back to the modeling.

    Roland,

    Great idea! If you ever want to make it "functional" just put some pulleys above the ties and add a bit of rope to the side with a cleat.
    But it does look good as is.

    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.

    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 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.

    Roland that was a great idea; it doesn't detract from the scene and is plausible.
    Besides if you get a runny nose....hey your all set. Nice job!!

    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.

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