Thanks again Rich, Mike, George, Pete, Robert, and Carl. Glad you like it.

Here's a couple of final shots for comparison as I have another one of these trucks in green, that I haven't modified...as yet.

Hi Folks,

004/03/2019 was the last day I posted to my build.
Real life got in the way. I had to complete a kitchen remodeling project for my wife and during that time I also got sick. I will need every minute, but will try to complete this by this evening.

I have a few pictures to upload now.

Here I am using interior spacers to reinforce exterior walls.




This is not glued together yet, just showing progress.



Here I am showing the interior bracing I had mentioned earlier. It's not pretty, but I won't be showing the interior of this model. Also, note that I am making spaces for interior floors, which fortify the exterior. Everything remains square once glued together.




Here I am showing the placement of two floors in the annex, which helps to keep that section together.




More later. Thanks for looking.

Rich

Hi Rich. Glad you're feeling better, and good to have you back posting, and thanks for your latest update.


It will be a lot to try to finish by the deadline, but I doubt the thread will be locked anytime soon.
So just keep going and see how you go.

Rich, you have an ambitious goal, but I have faith in you.

Here's my coal shed:



I've completed the wood components, and only need to add the hardware for the chutes. I'm still contemplating what it will look like. Every photo I've seen of these structures seems to have a different mechanism. I hope to have settled on something in the next day or so.

I decided to do just this simple coal shed instead of one with several roofs and enclosed areas. I like the way it looks.

Mike

Thanks for continuing to follow along, Jim and Rob, and thanks for the kind comments.

Continuing with this saga, making dry fit, before gluing this together.










And now gluing everything together.









Thanks for looking. Trying to glue all together in the eleventh hour, just doesn't work.

This post is for all of you people who have contributed to this years challenge, and for all of the people who have followed along and have waited patiently for pictures. I don't have mine completed yet, but I want to show what I have so far. So, here they are together, and I have one building yet to finish besides these two with scenery and details to place.










Thanks again. And thanks to Joe and Bruce for this years challenge. It has been a joy to model especially with Chester and Frederic' in mind while doing so. Hopefully I can complete my models within the next couple of days before this thread is locked.

Michael, thanks, I appreciate your kind words.

That coal shed is beautiful, such clean lines, and it appears like it is ready for business.
