All the windows and entry door are in. I added a goose-neck lamp at the front and also another sign on the roof of the left extension. A stack was added at the back.









For the stack I used a piece of sprue from a model kit. Was a perfect shape for what I needed. No cut or join required. Sometimes you get lucky.
Like Rich, I keep a lot of sprues in my scrap box for this purpose.
I used a sequin to represent a grommet into the wall, and added the mandatory rust.

Thank you, everybody.

Galen, I considered sheetwood or cardstock, but I would have to deal with the fact that you can see both sides of the walls at the opening. Also, this will be a signature structure on my layout and I decided to go the extra mile.

George, the individually-stained boards elicited a lot of comments Sunday at my open house for the local NMRA division meet. I like the way it turned also.

Greg, I do appreciate you following along.

Rich, donít worry. I have to put this down for a while to work on a couple of clinics. Youíll catch up.

Rob, itís big enough to become awkward to work on. At present Iím planning a metal (styrene) roof.

Mike

Mike - your coal shed is looking terrific!

Rob - likewise with your structure. I wasn't convinced with those different coloured boards, but within the whole structure the really do look great. our left over sprues have come in very handy.

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks Rich, Carl, Mike, Bob, Dave, Mark, Jim, and George.
I really appreciate your ongoing interest in my build.
Although this challenge hasn't had the participation rate we were hoping for, I'm happy to be part of it. It certainly has got me motivated again, and that's all that matters, and your kind words make it that much easier.

Mike, yep you've taken on a "BIG" challenge. I can understand how awkward it must be to handle.
You say a metal roof. Is that corrugated iron or rolled seam ?

Dave, yep I was lucky with the sprue, just being the perfect shape.

Mark, I'm really happy with the odd looking siding. When put into context it makes sense, and gives it some extra character.

Still have to get that wharf made, to finish it off.
