Roland, Glad the move went well, I will have to find your new place. The caboose on the log skids is really nice, I might borrow that one.

Hi All, First I must say how sorry I am for not thanking you all for your reply to my previous photos. I thought I had, getting to old. Larry, borrow anything you want. I am in the process of borrowing a whole kit. Jerry the room is a little bigger, but Mrs Hopeless needed access to the closet so the layout is the same size.

The kit I am "borrowing" is O'neals from SW. It looks like a great kit but to much money for me. I had to shrink it a little and am only using 2 buildings

Glad to see the Westport River Lumber Co back in operation. Off to a great start, I see. How did you do the paint on the taller building? I like how it turned out

Hey Roland just like I thought beautiful work.

Nice job on that peeling paint. Who's roof shingles are you using or are they scratch??

Looking forward to your next post.

Roland, Very well done. O'Neills has great popularity among Sierra West fans. Possible because it is available in HO and O scale.
Also the incredible casting that are part of the kits make it a quite a bargain.

I'm looking forward to yet another masterpiece in a 'small' room.
Any chance of a track plan? Even one done with finger painting will do. I want to know all about aisle widths, radius etc etc etc. You see if you can do it then it's good reason to blame you when mine goes wrong!!

Thank you all for taking the time to comment. I did not mention that the buildings will have something to do with wood products so cut lumber from the saw mill will have another place to be shipped to. I do not plan to do any interior detailing on this one.

Michael, The paint is very simple. After A&I I use an old stiff brush and dab the paint on. I think it is called stippling. After I use chalks, light gray to tone down the white then black and brown along the bottom.

Jerry, The shingles are Paper Creek. After they went closed down I saved what I have and make copies. The only thing is I have to cut them out which takes a while.

Bruce, There is a plan on page 3 that is as close to finger painting you can get. There was never a plan other than to figure where I wanted to put buildings served by the railroad. Then I put the track down to get there. One aisle is 18 inches wide the other is 3 feet because my workbench is under the layout.

Roland, thank you. Iím sure to have a stiff brush hanging around somewhere.

Mike

Just a quick update to show where I am. Also playing around with a few details to see if I like them. Of course Geezer is offering his advice as well. I should mention that all the windows are HO.
