          Rich:

          Nice job Rich. Did you scratch build that vent also? I kinda like that thing. If so what materials did you use. Whose brick walls did you use or are they also scratch?

            Al & Rick thanks. I didn't do my usual follow along as I build it sort of thing since I've been busy with the store so I'm glad George asked, and you guys enjoyed, the brief outline of what I did.

            Yes, George I love to collect stuff to reuse

            Thank you John I appreciate the compliment.

              Karl a compliment from you I hold in high regard, thanks.

              I have to say that this structure is not a true scratch build where everything is created from base materials as in the "good old days" but it's a bit more sophisticated then a kitbash.

              The short answer is, the vent is an exhaust motor and ductwork from a bag of Walthers ladders and wall vents I had in "the bin". They were modified a bit, painted, and dusted with Bragdon powders. Two walls are some Downtown Deco scraps that I bought last summer from Randy and two walls are Bristol Board. Of course the clapboard is the standard siding material.

              If you go back to earlier in the thread I responded to George D's request for a bit of info on the construction process where I outline the whole thing.

              Again thanks for the compliment

                Wow, Rich. Don't spend too much time looking for mistakes. I really like your stone/brickwork. I think too often, stone work is overdone and looks kind of caricaturish, but yours is very natural and goes well with the wood weathering.

                    Rich:

                    Your quite welcome. Good work desevres to be recognized. I think you did a great job on that structure. Are the doors on the siding wall from Rusty Stumps? Thanks for the info on the vent. Also I should have asked earlier what did u use for your stucco? Just curious as it looks good.

                      Thanks George and Matthew I appreciate any and all pats on the back I can get though I'm starting to get a bit round shouldered

                      Karl the siding wall door comes from a Bar Mills 1-Kit (back in June I did a tutorial of a small structure using one of these kits - http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/t...?TOPIC_ID=9092). There pretty handy to have in the bin. The stucco is DecoArt Sandstone applied with a palette knife. It gives the Sandstone a different texture.

                        Just for fun I'm just gonna poke this old thread alive. Recently I got this email from an old friend, PaulS with these photos...





                        Not bad for a 15 year old build. PaulS added the signage. As a side note the desk on the dock was built by the late AVRR-PA (Don Reed, Pittsburgh, PA).

                            Great little structure Rich, and the signage is perfect for a very much missed person in my eyes and mind!

                              Oldie but goodie. I had the pleasure of meeting Don Reed at his club's layout in Pittsburgh.
