    Good morning all.

    I won't go through all the steps of mold making as I have it all in the build right

    before this on the wagon. Here are the masters ready for the pour of rubber, the

    scroll pieces are for a one piece mold and the post, a baluster, a corbel, and an urn are for a two piece mold. The

    only other parts I see that will require molds are the windows and that will be done in good time.

        Bob, Having lousy pictures of a structure can sure give you a headache. It would be great if there were perspective photos ofr all these old (and sometimes new) places that catch our fancy. I'm learning sometimes you just have to use a little "creative interpretation". 99% of the onlookers will be fascinated with the results. No rivets necessary on a structure model.

            Following along here Bob.

            Very interested on how those cast parts are going to turn out, especially the two part mold.

                Thanks for your comments Mark, Jim, Dave, Bernd, and Ray. all much appreciated.

                Switching back and forth between mold making, casting, starting the base of the model, and

                getting ready for the Holidays. I have been busy (add a little 10 inch snowstorm).

                I am using a sheet of Gatorboard for the base of the model. The real structure has a "see

                through and airflow" brick job as a foundation for that large porch. Studying the

                photo it looks to me that while it had to have some mortar to hold it together I cannot

                see any and I suspect that the whole affair has been painted a brick color. It seemed to

                me that the best way to model that was to cut up a bunch of styrene strips into brick sized

                pieces and then glue them up as the real wall was done.

                That open area in the middle will be covered up with a wide stairway and there will be an

                additional wood section above the bricks. I used the black paper so it would be just dark

                that you can see between the bricks.

                This is what it looks like so far.

                    Impressive!

                    Bob, where do you source the Gatorboard?

                        Bob, your air flow brick foundation looks excellent, and ready to build upon.

                                HA!! Actually, except for size, that looks like an easier project than the one I am working on.
