I have my walls painted and some of the signs done. I did not work on in last evening because I was at a friend's retirement party.

I went with Brett's suggestions for the walls, but painted the trim the blue color I used on the first structure. I weathered this structure heavely, like the building I see here along the ocean.

Hi all
Well the signs are completed and no problems this time.
I started on the windows and hope to finish them this evening and then on to the building assembly.
Harry did Brett mention any kind of time frame for the next Foss' Kits?

Hi all
I hope this picture of the Clam & Oyster Company is visible to you. Please let me know before I try to post others.
The picture is not taken with a digital camera but with a Nikon One Touch which means that most of the detail is lost. The roof still needs some work and I have not decided whether to go with the brick chimney or cast concrete as bricks are rare in Alaska.
I also have no fancy software to improve the picture. Sorry.

John,

Great looking, even without the digital.

Mike, to answer, I haven't started on the Launch Company. Still working on the diorama base. I am bricking the retaining wall, brick by brick, so it's like the shingles, slow going.
The bricks I am using were too large and I've had to "split them" and then sand them down for a square and smooth finish. I'm using self hardening clay for "mortar". Should start on the Launch Co.the first of next week.

Sounds as if everyone is making excellent progress.

Jim

Hi Jim
Thanks
Yes the Launch Company seems to be easier to construct. I am not sure if it is because there is less prep needed for the walls or that I (we) feel more confident in what we are doing.

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.

Jim
