Now you just need to build how many buildings with stove pipes!!

Jerry,

Now, that is really funny !

I actually have built four so far with them in.
So, I thought to put this on here, because I can't fathom buying a stove pi[e kit, then pay $8.00 to ship a little packet. Sure beats that.

Glen, such a nice looking structure, and you're giving it away. Shame, but I'm sure your friend will appreciate it.

Galen, have fun doing all those little people. The wine corks for painting stands is a great idea.

Mike, nice jig, Looks like you have quite a few trusses to do, so should make it easier.

Rich. I generally always put my roofing on first, and paint in place.
Also nice work on the pipes.
I keep a lot of the sprues from my military models for pipe work, as they have plenty of twists and turns. Nothing goes to waste.


Regards Rob

Despite the cost of living, it's still popular.

I need a metal door for the front of the building. Wanted it thin, so used a piece of Slaters embossed N scale stone sheet, but reversed. The smooth back has just enough of a ripple showing to give some texture to the metal.
Then framed it with styrene strip.



Then cut out and framed the window section.



Then undercoated with cheap spray can auto primer.



For the rust I used Tamiya orange mixed with some desert yellow.
This was stippled on first.
Then I stippled on the green and then stippled on a bit of my brick red mixture over some of the orange. Finally gave it all a thin wash of the green.
Looks rusty enough to me.

Galen and Rob,

Thank you. Yes, the jig speeds up the process as well as improving the accuracy of the results.

Hi guys.

There has been some great progress!

Rob - your structure is looking good. I like the addition and the different coloured boards make it quite different.

Rich - Nice pin idea. Your tar paper looks terrific. For corrugated iron I attach using 3M double sided tape. Occasionally I use some CA on small pieces and corners around windows etc.

Mike - your trusses are looking good.

Glen - great garage!

Ok - my progress...

The roof was primed with floquil dullcote, then given a coat of graphite followed by Humbrol red. The corrugated siding was painted with Floquil platinum. I dry brushed with some tan. More weathering to go.

A view from the front side.

From the back and side.

More soon, cheers, Mark.

Looking good, Mark. I like the wooden awnings. Something you don't see very often.

Mark, thank you.

Excellent work on your model. The roof turned nice, didnít it? Like George, I like the awnings in particular. I think Iíve seen similar architectural features in North America but smaller, more decorative than functional. Iím going to keep my eyes open for examples here; Iíd like to incorporate similar awnings on a future model.

Mike

Hello Folks... It's been almost a week since I last posted anything on my project. I have been quite busy. This structure for the tribute will be for Chester Fesmire, and a few more details will have to be added before I can call this one finished. The interior is completed, but the exterior is not. More details will be added once I get a base underway. Here are a few pictures of my progress.





















This weekend, I will be starting the other structure to honor Frederic' and building a base for the two buildings.

Thanks for following and all comments. This has been a rewarding project. I am happy with the results of my labors.

Rich

Rich your attention to the detail inside is just outstanding.

Thank you, Jerry.

I would like to say, I had planned on installing interior lighting, but on further observation, the wiring would interfere with such a small confined space. My first intention was to install all the wiring, then hide the wires inside of the rear, right corner room. But, that corner made for a great parts room instead.
When I complete the full diorama, I will take pictures outside, which will enhance their viewability. With such small rooms, it is difficult to take good pictures, without having a portion of each picture come out fuzzy.
Overall, I am happy about this build.
Thanks for following.

Rich

Rich, your version of this Red Oak garage has turned out really nice!
I'm certain that Chester would have loved it.
