    Looking forward to that Appalachian barn build. I see you have magazines that go back as far as my collection. I remember when the older Model Railroader had great scratch built articles.

      Mike,
      Very nice start! I like how the stained wall looks, very rustic.
      To me, you can read the doors very well by the lumber width change.

          Louis, Thank you. I have Model Railroaders going back to the 40s, RMC to the 60s, and almost every issue of NG&SL Gazette. This current project of mine gives opportunity to mine the old issues for models I want to build that do not fit my own or club's layouts. I like the step-by-step style of the old articles but usually make modifications of my own. We have a lot more castings and raw materials available today.

          Mike

              Thanks, Bernd. Indeed, rustic is what I was after.

                If I can think of a way to do hinges that don’t look clunky I will add them. Otherwise I’m happy with them.

                I’ll do the rest of the walls next.

                              Looking good Mike. About those hinges. How small of a <> can cut. out of paper? Then a small speck of rust color and you've got your hinge. Helps to if you wear a magnifier. I know you can do it.

                              BTW, I got the seat next to Rich.

                                This is what I was going to say.
                                Nicely done.
