    That's quite alright. I was just wondering what other models Fiskars had. I found it strange they didn't show in their on line catalog.
    I'm looking a making something small for HO and motorized. Thanks for the offer.

      Added a canvas door to close off the door opening. Painted heavy white paper with a canvas color paint.

          Thanks Carl,
          It's the little, different changes that keep me interested in making structures.

            If the front row is filling up, I'll settle for row 2.

              Nice progress. Great use of your Fiskars roller, it made a good roofing material, and excellent idea with the ice protected canvas doorway.

                Bernd I don't want to hijack this thread, but you are a machinist and could make-up something like this. Or even 3D printed.

                  Just so we don't hijack Dave's build thread I'll start one in the tool section on this idea. Louis, I'm going to steel your picture.

                    Dave,
                    Neat canvas door! Like those fabric ribbons.

                    Louis,
                    Neat tool idea. I might see if I can print one for Z scale.

                        Nice going Dave'.. Another masterpiece in the works'... A very nice jester for Fred'.. one of my favorite builders as well'. Always willing to share secrets. I have studied Fred's structures for many hours over the past 8 years. I've learned a lot from just looking'.... Now you should take a bow as well'.. your builds are also very good, in the 1/29 scale it is difficult to hide any imperfections. Nice to see a new build from you coming along on the new forum'....

                          I appreciate your comments and it's certainly good to be building again!

                            Dave,

                            The neighborhood is growing, and it looks like another great structure is being built. Your scratchbuilding is innovative, and the methods you use are eye-popping. I'm sure Fred will love the neighborhood.

                                Dave, your Terrell Ice house is coming along very well! I also love the canvas strips covering the doorway, simple but very effective looking detail.
                                I can almost feel the cold air escaping from the openings. Keep up the great work!
