    • Ken Just catching up on this thread great job, exellent detail. Love the steel support over the garage door (lintel?). An often overlooked structural element...

      • WOW Ken, the brick carving looks terrific, very well done.

        Are we planning a grand opening? The way the truss business is right now I might do better in the welding world.

        It might be time to put my cape back on and turn into Trussman again.....


        I am honored to have the trussman name on this magnificent build.

        • Thanks everyone :up:

          Started on the roof. Not quite sure, but I think I will add stones to it along with lots of tar.



          As you can see, flat black paint is not flat when sprayed at 20deg

          • Very nice black colour on your roof, Ken.

            • Finally made a little progress.

              Mixed up a batch of tar and spread it along the roof seams.



              Also made a cement cap and installed it. Still need to distress it a little more. The door and hinges are installed along with the sign. Still need to add the bolts to it.

              • Looks good Ken,

                I was afraid the demise of the Packers would dampen your spirits but I see that is not the case.

                • Great look to the roof coping Ken. Good choice. The sign looks just terrific, way nice job. Oh and did I ever mention that I'm a Pats fan?

                  • Nice tar look on the roof, the rusty hinges are super good looking. And the sign, well what can I say, it says it all.

                        • I'm a new member and just finished reading through the topic from the beginning. Having just started in 1:20 modeling, I learned plenty following along especially your detailing of the oil drums, doors and windows and the incredible sign! Great craftsmanship all around. I look forward to following this through.

                          • Thanks for the comments everyone :up:

                            Chester...I won't hold that against you

                            Just a little progress. The cap is installed and weathered and the light is also installed. Still need tp paint and weather that.

                            • Just a little more progress. The building is pretty much done for now. Have the concrete slab installed and weathered. Still need to add the step.



                              I'm currently working on a couple of metal signs.



                              And on this side I'll be adding a rack for some metal storage.



                              And soon it's on to the base.

                              • Ken,

                                It looks terrific! You know I have a forge in my shop, won't I need a roof exhaust?
