              WOW!! I just posted a very long message and somehow deleted the whole thing while trying

              to add a photo. :erm:

              Here we go again but not so long.

              Thanks for your input Greg, Dave, Fred, Pete, and Carl,very much appreciated.

              I have been mulling and mulling my next project and have decided on what I consider a

              beautiful Victorian Cottage. I have had some photos saved on my computer for a long time

              and I forget where they came from, maybe Shorpy. My problem is that in four photos I

              still only have shots of the front. I guess I could dream up the other three sides but

              somehow I don't feel right about that, it sort of destroys the originality of the real

              structure. What I have decided to do is to make it a "front only" model with maybe only

              an inch or so sides to make it a low dept building like we make background structures

              for our model railroads. (not counting the depth of that large front porch).

              It will be a slow go project at least at the start between now and the holidays as my

              model building time will be severely limited.

              Here starts the first real model on volume 5. (photo below)

                      Bob, you have chosen a very beautiful looking house as your next modeling project!

                      I look forward to seeing your amazing skills being demonstrated once again.

                        That’s a gem of a house with wonderful details, some unusual, particularly the little lookout or dovecote at the peak of the house.

                            Thanks for your comments and support Carl, Dave, Bill, Greg, Mike, and Mark, all much appreciated.

                            HOLD THE PRESSES! HOLD THE PRESSES, HOLD THE PRESSES.

                            Looks like a MAJOR change coming on this project.

                            Fred Terrell has worked his magic in finding photos on the web and he has come up with one

                            that shows pretty good the right side of the structure. While I still do not know what the

                            left side looks like I can at least make something that "could be", something in line

                            with what the right side looks like. I don't need the back because most of my structures do

                            not have a back-side anyway. While I no longer have the model railroad I still build as if I did.

                            I am in the thinking it out, how to make various parts, planning the structure, time of building

                            so I will not have a lot to actually post for quite some time.

                            THANK YOU FRED !!

                              Fred's photo also suggests that there is much more to the back of the building, it show a HINT of

                              more roofs back there but they do not exist for this project.
