They also have some great false front retail buildings with tremendous detail. He gives jigs with all of his kits to make assembly easier. Their URL is http://www.crystalriverproducts.com
The false front buildings are very common in the rural Alaska area I am modeling. Do you have any of the kits and if so what do you think of them. I am not familiar with their product.

Hi, everyone. Back in the city and back to work on Foss' last night. I got the shingles stained and the most of the stripwood stained. For whatever perverse reason, I decided to use Floquil and Diosol to do the staining. So I had to listen to much tedious complaining about the "stink" all evening from my wife.

I guess I'd better go back to acrylics and washer fluid for any additional staining. The noise from the other side of the room tends to decrease in volume and pitch when I use those materials.

Harry, how are the legs? Still banged up?

Morning All,

It's amazing how many honey do's that can occur in a little less than a month. I've been trying to catch up on them, so have been remiss in Foss'. Also spring has a will and list of its own.

I did get to play with the digital camera last night and yesterday found a Smartcard reader. As soon as I solve some lighting problems, I'll post up a few shingle pictures. I'm getting some blue interferences to the Clam & Oyster building that has no blue at all. I'm not shooting under fluoresence lights, so will try to track down that problem.

Glad to hear of everyone's progress.

Jim

Finally posted up shingle pics to photo album under header "Foss landing". They're a little large to post here.

Thanks

Jim, I resized two of your photos for posting here.

Your shingles look very good - as does the entire structure.

Check Jim's album for other photos of the roof and building.

Hi all
First: Jim your roof looks terrific. Great job on the shingles.
Second: On the instructions for the Launch Company. Page 34 step # 2.
Tugs & Barges sign,
it says cut 4 pieces of .020 x 3/32 x 6" long stripwood from bag #1: 2 7/8" long.
That length is longer than the side the sign is to be attached to.
I think it should read 1 7/8" long which is the length I used and it works well.
Mike for your directions I am not sure of the page number but I think the step should read the same.
