  • Looking great Larry, I too like the colouring of the 1 x 10's.

    • Larry, good choices on the roof.
      Boards look good.
      I see Brett's instructions coming in handy already.

      • Jerry thank you. We'll see how the rafters go; I think I'm going to have to
        come up with a jig so there're all the same.

        David thank you and thanks for stopping by. Actually this build the boards will
        be horizontal as opposed to vertical on my previous builds. Thanks I'll remember
        about the mold at the bottom boards. And yes the right side has a shadow.

        Scott thank you. Always happy to share "new to me" techniques and hopefully they'll
        be of use to someone else.

        Ron thanks. Experimenting is half the fun of modeling.

        Rick thank you. The slanted roof just didn't look right to me; probably due to the
        small size of the store. Yes Brett's instructions are awesome and now I know how
        some of these guys get such great looking buildings.

        • Since today was a modeling day, I was able to get another section of foreground finished:

          Awhile ago I had asked for suggestions as to what could be done with this area. Louis gave me the idea of extra rail
          on a rack waiting to be used. It's a simple design using scale 6x6's which were given a coat of A&I then planted in the
          ground. After that I was able to lay down the scenery material and place some old pieces of rail on top.

          This is the entire foreground that is finished; so now a little under 3 ft. of the layout is pretty much all set. I did leave the
          area open by the turnouts to make switching easier which will be hand operated since there are only three of them on the
          layout.

          After that was finished I cut, grained, and stained 28 pieces of siding for both sides of
          the Store. Now it's just a matter of cutting and gluing the wood to the sides. Hopefully
          they will be done in a few days along with the back wall that is already done.

          That's pretty much it for now. Any comments/suggestions are always welcomed. Until
          next time.

          • Larry, all that foreground detailing looks very good.
            You're doing a great job on this.
            Keep it up.

            • I agree with Rick. The foreground looks perfect.

              It's good planning to make sure scenery and details do not interfere with operating turnouts.

              • Rick thank you for your nice compliments, it's greatly appreciated.

                Michael thanks, I made an effort to try to blend scenery and function into
                the layout as I go along.

                • Larry,

                  That rail stand is simple but effective. Nice idea Louis.

                  • I need your micro managers at Devils Mountain Quarry. (Pun intended) We can't afford luxuries such as rail racks cause we are struggling.

                    Great job Larry! Looks wonderful!

                    • Scott thank you. That's whats so great about this forum; if you get stuck
                      someone usually has a solution.

                      Philip thanks, much appreciated. I'll see if i can get J.D. to come over and
                      help out. Lol.

                              • Jerry thank you for your nice compliments. With Christmas fast approaching and all
                                the "getting ready" stuff to do things will most likely slow down somewhat. It'll give
                                your fingers a chance to rest. Lol.

                                Philip you asked for it. Lol. Great picture by the way.
