Sorry Bob, won't be renaming the engine facilities.

Well it seems some of the citizans of clearwater don't like what is going on at Suzie Q's and are organizing to build a church. It seens that some people think that if there is a church and the lord is present then the men in towm will quit going to Suzie Q's once the fear of god is put in them.

To that end construction of the Clearwater Revival Church has started.



I'm using the kit produced by Outback Models from Australia. The kit comes with lazer cut matboard on which to add individual boards to make up the clapboard siding. THis wall is complete with one window cut out.





The wall ends trimmed and the windows cut out.





One of the end walls with the siding attached.





The walls assembled.





A view from the front looking into the church interier. You can just see the ends of the pews on the left hand side. Outback Models offer a seperate kit that containd 10 pews and an alter if you want to detail the interior of the church. You can see the stain glass window on the back wall.





A close-up of the stain glass window viewed from the outside of the church.

Next up trim and roof.

Say, Ron! Does this mean that if I attend an ops session at your place on a Friday night that I don't have to attend mass that Sunday!

Clearwater looks like a great place with lots of reasons for a railroad to be there.

Clearwater Revival Church -- cool!

(Please allow an extra 60-90 minutes per service in case the band starts jamming!)

Cheers,

Thanks for the comments everyone,

Mike, If you operate at my place on a Friday I'll see what I can do about missing Sunday Mass.

Dallas, You never know the church get a reputation for holding extra long services (as long as the sermon is short)

Jim, the stained glass window came with the kit and is printed on clear acetate. As long as it doesn't rain, it will be ready for Sunday Service.

Ron,

I was some place in Alaska and the town had a rule... for every bar there had to be a church.... the prospective bar owners got smart and bought cheep land and built a church and then a were allowed to build a Bar.

BTW your church looks great.

Just hum a few bars of 'Who'll stop the Rain and the building will make a Proud Mary down by the Green River.

If that doesn't work all the guys will run down to Suzie Q's again.

Well time for an update on the Clearwater Revival Church, while I haven't had too many free evenings I have managed to find 15-20 minutes here and there.



There is an accessory kit available for the church that includes 10 pews.......





and an alter.





In order to see the interior and before I put the roof on I added lights.





The church comes with a foundation.





The completed roof without the roofing. The roofing material supplied with the kit is corrugated metal. I'm thinking that the god fearing citizens of Clearwater would spurge for a more expensive (and nicer looking)roofing material.......



So I spent the evening making cedar shingles. I added lines on the roof every scale 9" to give a nice reveal. The shingles were cut in random lengths between 18" and 24" long and sliced 12" wide. This gives a nice uneven shingle line. As of this posting I've finished shingling the cupola and one side of the entrance roof.

I'm not sure what takes longer, shingling the model roof or doing a 1:1 roof.
