    Michael, thanks for making and sharing your videos to demonstrate some of your techniques.
    Both techniques provide excellent results.

      Michael,

      Thanks for the videos and explanations. Although I work in HO, they will still come in handy.

        An update after fattening up during the holidays
        Started construction of the upstairs interior on the Saloon.
        All made out of matte board.

        The doors are not 3 dimensional, but have the relief painted on.

        The floor and inner walls are removable downward so I can glue the roof in place and still be able to service the interior.

        With some 3D printed furniture and nice lighting, it will look quite convincing.

          Somehow, I've missed this thread recently. I liked your videos, Michael. I had forgotten about the steel wool in vinegar weathering solution. I need to look around my work area, I may have a jar of that somewhere.

          Judging from the second photo above, the interior rooms will look great when you get the furniture in.

            If you hadn't mentioned the doors not being 3d I would have never known.
            Nice job on that paint work.

              What Rick said, Michael. Those doors are very 'believable'.

                Progressed a little bit on the construction.
                Everything is built so the upper part of the building is relatively easy to disassemble from the main building, the upper floor and the Saloon interior needs to have easy access to the lighting.



                I had to change the construction of the porch roof a bit to make it more durable.


                Here the upper floor is lifted off.


                The upper interior can also be lifted out to access the saloon interior.


                It took a few adjustments to make every connection tight, but not too good ....

                    Thanks!
                    I've applied the tar paper roofing.
                    I used surgical tape that I painted rust red.


                    I also weathered the corrugated metal wall.

                    The next step is to add the roof cap and tar seals and to build the various chimneys and pipes and then weather the roof.

                      You're doing a great job of engineering the parts to come apart so that you have access to the interior, yet when they are together, they appear seamless and fit perfectly as if glued together.

                      I appreciate the effort that goes in to achieving this and the planning and thought that is needed to pull it off well.
                      I've done it on a few builds and from experience know the amount of effort it requires. So much more than just a straight build.

                      Great work.

                        That is some great work. Matching those floors one wouldn't be able to tell unless you told us.

                          A bit of progress.
                          The roof over the small building is built and painted.


                          The paper is the one that was supplied in the kit just to get some variation from the main roof

                              Very nice. The various roof angles and materials add a lot of interest.
