Yeah, and as I said to Walt in an email a few days ago, the worst part is I may be running out of time. I'm not getting any younger, and I could kick the bucket before I get everything finished. Oh well, like they say, it's the journey, not the destination... [:-eyebrows]

Good evening all
I worked on the landing for the second floor door today. Looks fine to me. I will have to decide whether to go with the original metal door casting or the one I scratch built. I have been working on the metal one to see if I can make it look satisfactory to me.
I am happy with the crossbuck metal doors which is great and will save time not having to scratch build them.

Whoa Mike!!! You do not have our permission to go anywhere anytime soon as there is too much unfinished business to take care of.[:-eyebrows]

Good morning guys,

Well I finished glueing up the walls and started the overhang last evening. I also looked at the landing for the second floor but didn't start it yet. I am still not sure what I am going to do about the doors, I kind of like the way the cross buck doors turned out and am not sure about the second floor door yet. I ordered hinges and a few other detail items last week so I may just build a new door.

Gee Mike would you like a dependant to leave all your fine kits to?

Harry

BTW I too have an AARP membership, although I'm not quite retired yet, but the wife is.

Well, I'm not planning on going anywhere anytime soon.[:-shake] But I looked at my "to do" shelf in the basement, and I've got quite a stack of boxes/kits waiting on me.

I spent a few minutes last night molding a door knob and plate from Sculptamold. The knob is close to being out of scale, but I was reaching the point where it was so small that I couldn't "work" the clay. So I made do. After painting it, I thought it didn't look too bad. But hinges were out of the question. [:-banghead]

I got the four walls of the two-story portion assembled and am pleased with how it looks so far.

I'm really looking forward to getting the whole structure finished so I can place it on the diorama base and see how it will look with the stone wall, etc. [:-eyebrows]

Hi Guys,

Well I finally got around to taking a few photo's of my Foss' Landing project so far. Here they are:




Sorry for the poor photo quality, I am still learning how to use this great digital camera I have.

Looking good, Harry. [:-thumbu]

I posted a longer reply when I saw your photos in the other discussion thread earlier.

Hi Harry
Looking good. Keep up the good work.
I was hoping to see a picture of that second story door that seems to be a cause for concern for a few of us. I still have not decided which door I like better.
I either need my tax return to come so I can get a digital camera or a sunny dry day to take pictures outside with my 35mm so I can post some pictures.

Here is my Clam "shell"

I just used ordinary lighting instead of the layout lighting for these. As a result, the siding appears darker and more weathered than it actually is. It's really a faded whitewash over weathered gray. And likewise for the trim. It's supposed to be dark green, but not as dark as it appears in these photos.

John, I included a photo of the second story door for you.
