Thanks guys,

hi Karl, yes the one on the roof, I think I have got the structure of it pretty well , but the writing on the large portion of the rooftop billboard is the part I cant figure out from any photos.

Regards
Karl.A

Karl, when you get the time to show the technique for the siding that would be great, Pat

Thank you Karl. I remember now that I had been interested by the way you use a heavy duty chopper for this kind of task.

Well it finally stopped raining today so I headed outside and snapped a few shots of the finished structure in better more even lighting than at my workbench.













There are a few more shots that came out OK if anyone would like to see them.

Thanks,
Karl.A

Great structure you have completed there Karl.

I especially like the siding which looks properly aged.
Yes by all means please post any additional pictures you may have.

Karl, unless you told us I could not have guessed this was poster board, the whole build came out great. You took out the billboard of my girlfriend though, she will be so upset!!! Yeah I wish!!!
I would love to see any other shots you have. Thanks for the web link from the lighthouse thread. Pat

Karl, your great structure looks very nice in this "natural" lighting. The billboard is fantastic, especially the rear with all its timbers, and the news stand, with the colored magazines and the packages of newspapers is a great piece of modelling. I, toon, would like to see other shots, and am already looking forward to this new great project, your lighthouse.

One fantastic scratch build. Thanks for posting all the construction photos as you went along. I picked up quite a few tips and ideas.

Karl, great photos again.
How did you imitate the tar at the base of the billboard?

Hi Karl....you did an amazing job on your version. You scratchbuilt this, right? Either way, it looks really nice. By the way, I second that question by Frederic regarding the tar....
