Spent the day between watching the Tour de France and making and detailing some details for the model.

Tony,

That 3 cylinder air compressor is really cool! Did you cast those parts? This shed project has been a head turner in every phase.

Great detail work, Tony.

I've been out of town and today is the first chance I've had to watch the Tour. I watched the first half of today's stage, but recorded it and am about to watch the big climb.

Jim, thank you, no, the compressor is a 3-D part from Rusty Stumps.

George, Saturdays stage, 14 I think, was a killer at the end. I'll let you watch it, no crashes, thank goodness. Would love to know where Lawson comes in on this stage. He is an inspiration to all. Raised almost $115,000.

Are you all ready for more details??? OK, here is where I am at now. I may or may not be totally finished on this wall, I have a blank area to the rear that I feel needs more 'treatment'. But, adding the details to a wall before it goes in is far better than doing it when in place. Enjoy.

Now that the bar is so high, I fully expect to see flies around the outhouse and the dead mouse in the corner of the building....
Amazing work, tony.
Cheers,
Dave

Finally have the car side wall in, but not necessarily finished. I added a rack for some lumber storage.

The first set of photos show the shelf bracket construction out of 2x4's.

Tony,

Its looking good but, you spent all that time trying to make 45 or 30 angle bracing for the shelves, even though they were going to be hidden, which is commendable.
But then you went and loaded the shelves up with bare uncoloured stripwood, with rough cut ends.
Come on, I know you can do better than that... dont rush it.

That's funny, but the wood is supposed to be fresh lumber to repair an upcoming car, after all, it is a engine and car shop. The ends are rough cut from the mill, the final size will be cut to length when replacing bad boards on the car.

Would that make sense, or do you still think they should still be weathered or colored a bit???

I know its supposed to be fresh lumber, but, bare stripwood doesn't look like fresh lumber, it looks like strip wood.
and for this model that's not good enough, it will detract.

Gimme a few mins and I'll find you some pics, you'll see the difference it makes.


Edit: I tried to find you some of Bill Michaels incredible pictures of "new, raw wood" from his amazing HO sawmill, but, gave up till tomorrow, so, for now, here's my version.
