    • Great looking front wall, Larry. It sounds like a lot of us learned a new technique for making a dirty/frosty window.

        • Ron thank you for the compliments. Definitely wouldn't want to live in something like
          that up in your neck of the woods.

          Michael thanks; much appreciated.

          Bruce thank you and thanks for dropping by.

          Roland thank you. That trick I learned as a kid putting model cars together. When I would get
          glue on the windows it would look like it was fogged up; which didn't look too good and since
          I don't have any Dullcoat I used the next best method.

            This is the left end wall with the signs added. After cutting the signs off the sheet they were dusted with brown/gray chalk
            and added some clear alcohol to blend everything in. Some of the signs were glued haphazardly to look like they were
            starting to fall off the building.

            The corner pieces have been colored and weathered to match the rest of the building. That will be the next project in order
            to get the building glued together.

            That's about it for now with more to come.

            • Larry,
              The front and end walls look great! Nice details, wood color, and weathering. You really captured the rustic feel.
              Love the signs and saw blade!

                • Larry, I like the open window. Will this structure mount to a foundation? ~mike

                  • Looks like you even have some knotholes in that wall.
                    Nice work!

                    • Scott thank you, much appreciated.

                      Jerry thanks. I've never done windows like that before and was pleased with the results.

                      Mike thank you and yes the building will be placed on a foundation with a front porch
                      to catch all the clutter.

                      Rick thanks. Yes I made a few knot holes on the front and the left side; didn't want to over due
                      those so just a few.

                      • Now that is some outstanding progress Larry. Great looking build in every way as I see it. I agree with all before me with their comments. Very, very nice!

                          • Looks great Larry. Did all those details ( saw blade, horseshoes etc) come with the kit ?
                            The door hinges are a very nice feature. We don't always model them.
                            Wood colouring looks good too.

                            • Rob thank you for the compliments. Yes all the detail stuff came with the kit. Sierra West kits
                              tend to be a little pricey but comes with tons of excellent detailing parts; I haven't even scratched
                              the surface yet with all of the parts provided.
