      "That will be her 13th styrene scratchbuild since April." Somehow "WOW!!!!!" doesn't seem powerful enough, especially since I'm still working on one station I started twenty or twenty-five years or so ago. Made some good progress on it this summer, but it has again stagnated, and.... <sigh>

      Well done, Kanthima!! You're an inspiration to all of us!! Brava!!

        Thanks, Ray, Dave, Scott, Mike, Bill, Pete. I painted the undercoat on the roofs of 31-33 Washington St., 15-17 Strong St. and 7 Strong St. the other day. Then I started on 31-33 Washington's foundation. But I didn't get around to posting any pictures till tonight.
        31-33 Washington St. Newburyport

        An old photo shows this building with flat sides and front. It may have been built as two large half-houses but in my era I believe it was three apartments on each side. Now it's been condo-ized with additions behind. Nid did the foundation in styrene brick sheet because she wanted to model the steps.

        View east from High St.

        Here are 31-33 Washington, 15-17 Strong and 7 Strong. She's working on the house at the corner of Washington and Strong, hoping to have it assembled by Sunday for the Tour de Chooch.
        VIew from the rear end EB from Newburyport

        The difference in era between 1823-built 5 Strong St. and 1890-built 7 Strong is quite visible here. 15-17 Strong falls somewhere in between. The footprint for the Newburyport Depot is visible on the left.

              Once they are all finished and in place it's going to be one heck of a great scene!

                Great view of the houses along the track.
