  • Fred,
    Beautiful coloring, and good variation! Your brick work just keeps on amazing me.
    Nice start on the addition.

      • Fred, Great looking bricks, now you've applied the wash. And more bricking to go. Nice.
        The side addition should look good.

              • Thanks, Scott, Tom, Rob, Bob, Ray and Dave!!

                I went back to the main structure following the new info I had and cut in three more windows and a door. And bricked what needed to be bricked.

                Now I'm going back to bricking the add-on. I'm starting to feel the signs of brick fatigue.

                  • Nice work. I can sympathize with the brick work, both modeling and in real 1:1 brick work. The old saying of "Been there, Done that".

                    • Fred,

                      I went back a few pages and saw you did these walls brick by brick. What an amazing project.
                      But I'm sure with your past experience it's still a major process. Looks great. I like the chosen colors too.

                      • The addition will add a lot to your model.

                        Great job with coloring the brickwork.

                        • Fred,

                          Outstanding, both the brickwork and it's coloring. What more can I say??

                          • Fred, the new brickwork matches the original brickwork - not always a guaranteed outcome. Good adjustment with that new info!

                            • Thanks, Carl, Bernd, Rich, Mike, Bob and Bill!!

                              What? An update so soon!

                              I stained the new brick, fortunately the colors don't have to be spot-on.

                              To put it into perspective, that's nearly 400 bricks.

                              • Fred,
                                Your building is layered with talent of course. In addition, it is held together with the mortar of experience.
                                Nice work blending the bricks.
