Could add some rust stains over the tar under the pipes and the cyclone. But I think you nailed the rust tones on the roofing.

("What's with this Emery guy? At first he doesn't like the rust stains. Now he wants me to add more!" :-) )

Karl, very nice. I like the colors (if we can call weathered grey a color) and the rust.

Hi Jerry:

The steps come with the kit. They are made up of three pieces of wood that you glue together On top of each other. Each step is 1/8" wide.
