    • Larry,
      Great job on the ground work! Looks like a good mix! Things do look like they've been there for awhile.

      • Larry,

        As others have said before me, the groundcover looks really nice. As well as the placement of your excellent weathered details.
        Perhaps you can either have an outside toilet or a tool shed to cover the battery box..

        • Scott thank you for the nice comments. Nice to see my vision is coming across to others.

          Rich thanks. Funny you should mention the battery box....I'm in the process of building a
          basic tool shed which will cover it and also be removable. Thanks the the idea in the first
          place, much appreciated.

          • Great modeling Larry C., Ithink you should (if I might) build a really cool looking 3-holer outhouse to cover the battery box. Think of it ......the granddaddy of all outdoor crappers !!!! and it's right there in YOUR model........you might even consider a 2 story outhouse ??????????? well...maybe not . Anyways, the modeling is excellent and I need to check in more often so as to check out you fine work.......

            • Kyle thanks for the nice compliments. Please stop by when you can, I know you are busy getting your layout ready for the Tour.
              Actually I have a tool shed almost done for the battery box but I appreciate the suggestion. Hmmm......a 2 story outhouse you say....
              interesting concept!!!

              • Larry,

                Fine job on the scenery and additional details. You have an artist's eye.

                  • OK, Larry, using Kyle's idea of a 2 story outhouse, why not make a 2 story outhouse on one side and a roof over the tool shed as the rest of the building, joined together ?
                    That would make a really unique, one-of-a kind building. You could use the higher top of the 2nd story outhouse as the "handle" to lift the outhouse/toolshed off its foundation. LOL

                    • Rich as much as I like your idea, I already have the tool shed done and will be putting
                      on the finishing touches in a few days. Also I'm realizing I'm running out of room quickly.
                      I may use the idea on another build in the future....filing it under "down the road".

                        I understand about the "running out" of room though.
                        That's another reason why I used a sliding drawer under my diorama, instead of building
                        another shed to cover these boxes. All in all, I'm sure your dio will look great. carry on my friend.

                      Here is the shed which covers the battery box. It was built with the usual 6x6's for the frame and colored, weathered 1x10's using
                      chalks. The usual siding received some holes and splits along with nail holes. It was built just wide enough to go over the battery box
                      and long enough to cover where the wires exit the foam. The door was built in place with hinges added along with a door handle from
                      a cut down staple which was blackened. Also added a couple of signs

                      This is a overhead view showing the tarpaper which was glued on in a patch style with the top piece actually torn and added
                      some scrap 1x10 showing the roof boards.

                      This is the back of the garage with some junk around and some scrap lumber tossed about. The crate, oil drum, etc are all
                      from Sierra West colored and weathered with chalks. You'll notice the cement block sitting on top of the oil drum. Placed
                      a sign on the side of the shed to look like it was falling down. Also continued with the ground cover same as the rest of the
                      diorama. There is just enough room for a LP to squeeze between the shed and the garage door.

                      That's where I'm at for now and will continue on as time permits. As always thanks for looking.

                      • Larry,
                        Terrific looking shed! Fits right in.
                        Again, I like your tar paper roof! It really has the look.
                        You really have the weathered junk down.

                          • Well Larry right on top of things with the tar paper roof outstanding job on that.

                            Shed fits in perfectly with what your doing!
