I agree with Bill: nice work, and you did get the slightly blue-green of ivy leaves.

Thanks for your posts Bill & James!

Hi everyone,I've finally managed to squeeze in some modeling time in,over the last couple of nights.
I've been stripping wallpaper and ripping out, a section of a old plaster wall,to remove old knob & tube wiring.
I then must repair the hole left in my wall,and then paint the whole room.
This room also has a large bookcase that has to be emptied,before I can even move it.
So...I'm going to be at this for awhile!
Anyways...I have installed the exterior lighting on Testard's.
And even painted the upper brick walls with black paint,and used Woodland Scenics dry transfer lettering to make the painted factory signs,on the top there.
I also trained a bit more ivy onto the front wall,as requested.
And even added a few plants in terra cotta pots to the place.
Poor Albert,he's still trying to get into the showroom.
If only he'd turn around, and ask the Doctor in the Police call box for help.

Here is how the sign, on the back wall looks.
The roof on the back wall addition,will just meet with the bottom of this sign.

I'm going to put this whole Magoun Pier project on hold for awhile.
I ordered "Execution Rocks" from Doug at Foscale,and hope to work it into my scene here at Magoun Pier.
With a few name changes,and some modifications,I think it will be grand!
So until that arrives,I'm going to start on a project that I've had on hold for awhile now.
That's my Rail Scale Miniatures "Dome Oil" kit I started 2 threads about this kit,but have not done anything with them yet.
So just for a break,I'm going to work on this smaller project, before Christmas.

Thanks for looking!

Greg Shinnie

The front of that building is spectacular! Wow!

The back is coming along as well, but that front just blows me away. I suspect that M. le Professeur de Mathématiques will be pleased, even if the Good Doctor has to wait outside for a bit longer.

Greg, that looks fantastic! I find your modelling an inspiration. Now, if I only had more time . . .
Great to see you back at it. I will be following your Dome Oil build.

WOW!!! I have to say that is the first modeled ivy that I've ever seen that looks truly real. Usually it's just ground foam stuck on a pattern of white glue. Excellent job...I'm most impressed.

That all has come together really nicely, Greg!

It's a great day whenever steam heads out into the timber!

Wonderful building, Greg. I'm almost out of a hectic book writing time. Then I'll have time to design the math tools and have theù cut for you.
The ivy is fantastic, indeed.

Greg, WOW !! Boy did that turn out great. It has been looking good through the build but for
some reason it just popped to life in that last photo.

Agree with Bob, this one just "blossomed".

The ivy creeping around the corner did the trick.
Guess my past comment about it being "a bit heavy" will die on the vine.

Greg, very nice piece. The logo protractor and compass is a really nice touch.

But Frederic were you established in 1902?
