I like the dip in the roof and the shingles at the ridge line.

Bob,

Good save on the shed. Warp usually dooms a model but you turned it into an asset. Very nice indeed.

Bob,

Yeah it looks great, nice save.

There's a prototype for everything.
If you can't make it perfect, make it adjustable.
DCC is not plug and play.

Thank you Scott, and Welcome to the forum.

I've recently bought some Kits from Wild West Models. They are the same people who made the shingles I used on the shed. They are laser cut kits and they are well executed. Most of my freight cars are laser cut wood kits but these are the first structures I have tackled. I don't use stains alcohol bases stains on my freight cars. Weathering is done with acrylic paint based washes after color painting. In contrast I use a lot of A&I stains on my structures. I was concerned s how the woods used in laser cut kits would respond to A&I stains. So I decided to one of their outhouse as a guinea pig. Their Kit #17. If you're unfamiliar with Wild West Model products check out their kits and other products on their web page. Among their kits they make four styles of outhouses. Three of them come in 2-packs. They are IMHO reasonably priced, about $6 dollar a John. The kits took my A&I stains well. They also went together easily with little fiddling and no major adjustments. The kits come with extra details and walls and doors so you can make quite a verity of outhouses from each kit. I appreciated that I didn't have to use the moon on the door which is really inappropriate for my era. So I built one as a no thrills or paint necessity and one as a top-of-the-line unmentionable.

Ta-da....


Like others, I'm going to need a whole lot of these.

Bob, I've gotten really good faded/weathered paint by applying Pan Pastels over top of walls stained with A&I. That's a trick worth trying.

Amazon has a weathering set, a good starter, for $37.50: https://www.amazon.com/Colorfin-PanPastel-Artist-Pastel-Weathering/dp/B007JV8XRK/

Roger Malinowski, Stoney Creek Designs, is known for introducing these to the hobby: http://www.stoneycreekdesigns.com/panpastels.html Same set is $44 from him. A lot other mail order model railroad hobby shops and even kit manufacturers are distributing them now. Jeff Adam, Motrak Models, has a storage rack: https://motrakmodelsusa.com/tools.html#!/Pan-Pastel-Rack-85028/p/159003239

I use wedge make-up sponges and eye-liner appliers to apply them (stolen from wife, but easy to get at a drug or big box store).

You have a nice collection of small buildings, Bob. I like the way you recovered the shed with the warped walls - well done.

George, Håkan, Thank you very much. I appreciate your comments. I'm looking forward to building the Wild West kits I have but I'm also wanting to start working on the moguls again.

Frank, that was good!

Andre, Hi Stranger! Thank you (I think) you did see my imploding shed? Anyway, The Wild West shingles are easier to apply than Campbell's being that they are stiffer and easier to keep straight.
