  • People walking along this fence don't need to a book... Very nice series of posters.

    • I love my signs....lol. I am just glad I didn't whitewash the fence, that would take away from my signs.

      • Ken,

        Good to see you active on this project again. Nice job on both the culvert and the fence.

          • Thanks guys :up:

            Tim, you notice there is no sign painter sign

            Next up was adding some steps, dirt and texture to the yard and a little more detail to the gravel drive.

              • This will finally get this thread caught up.

                I scratched a steel rack together for the side of the building. Wanted to use brass but ended up using styrene.



                After looking at for awhile I thought it needed something so I added some more structure for a small roof.



                Ended up using left over boards for the roof.



                And I also started on the chimney for Tim's hearth.



                I want to start detailing the yard with various colors of grass but I didn't feel like spending 190 bucks for the Noch unit so I'm going to try and build one of these. Hope it works. Will let you know after I get it built.

                • Steel racks are great looking and a nice detail. I am curious why did you not build them out of brass like your original plan?

                  The dirty awning window is a treat and so is the exhaust on the roof.

                  Ken, I bought one of those Noch applicators that you squeeze. It wasn't very expensive and it works pretty well if you have a smaller area to do. Just a thought.

                    • Looking very nice Ken.

                      You may even be able to use this model in the next Challenge which will be announced today.

                      • Thanks guys.

                        Tim, I couldn't find any brass around town. The only so called hobby shop only had plastic. Menards didn't have anything that small and Home Depot left town.

                        I'll probably end up using plastic for the steel also [:-ashamed]

                        • This covered rack is very nice, Ken. The screen behind the window aboved it is a great detail too. Now, you'll have to put some material on this rack.

                          • Hey Ken,

                            I'm glad I was able to find you here, (was watching your build on B&D) this is really coming along great, one of my favorite dio builds. The racks are well done, a very nice touch.

                            • Good to see you came for a visit David. Hope you visit often.

                              Tim, does the applicator work with longer grasses? I'm still waiting for parts to arrive[:-ashamed]

                              Well, a little bit of scenery and some well rusted metal (Tim doesn't sell much of this stuff) is all the progress I've made. At least it's something...

                                Indeed it is something, Ken. It looks great.
