John,

Hopefully, its a combination of the two. I keep picking the Launch bag up and telling myself I need to get started, then turn around and lay more bricks.

I hope I left enough room for Brett's future Foss' kits. I dropped off the left edge 12 inches (unfinished) then the diorama (16"), then 20 inches (unfinished) on the right side. All are 16 inches deep. Where the 16"x48" add-on butts to the layout island I have an additional 4 inches on the layout until I run into track. Fingers are crossed.

What I'm agonizing over now is the roof. It won't be as easily as the Clam & Oyster roof. I will go with wooden shingles again, but staggered this time. I'll probably build a single roof, then set the other two on it as dormiers.

John, your Clam & Oyster photo looks good. You did a really nice job with the structure. [:-thumbu]

Hi all
Thanks for the complements on the structure.
Actually without us working as a group I do not think I would have reached the level that I have. So thanks to all of you.
Here is a front view I also took with the same camera.
The weathered siding and the nail holes do not show up that well in these shots since the camera does not focus that well.
The green color is almost right but the trim looks too white if that is possible.
Since I took this picture I have painted the panels in the upper door with the green wall color.

Very nice John, it is interesting all the different looking Clam and Oyster Co's we have between us.

I agree, Harry. That's why I think we all should take a photo or two of our completed dioramas (next year??? ) and send them to Brett as well as posting them here. I'd be interested in his reaction to the different approaches and results we got with the same kit.

I got all of the Launch Co. signs finished last night and I'll be ready to start the windows Monday evening when I get back here to the city. (Going you-know-where for the weekend. )

Thanks Harry
I think one of the big reasons that I like wood models so much is that even though we all start with the same raw materials we can each add our own personal touch. Thus the four of us have come up with distinctively different buildings.
I look forward to seeing how we each treat The Launch Company.
P.S. That is a hint for some pictures.[:-eyebrows]

Hi all
Well work got into my way the last couple of days so I have yet to put the Launch Company together. Hopefully tonight I will finish the windows and then tomorrow I will be ready to glue the sides together.
Have a good day all.
