Bob,
The meat market looks great!
We have two SLA machines at work (Formlabs) and we make a lot of parts.
The issue of warpage is a problems that pops up now and again.
Looks like your getting a handle on it though.

Thank you everybody. I appreciate all your comments
George; The monster still has teeth.

Andre,
Here are the main colors I'm using;



I also use a little Folk Art Burnt Umber, dabbed on with a sponge to give the log sides some shading. I shingled the roof today.


and the backside;


The smoke jack is drying as i post this so hopefully I'll be able to finish the store tonight.

Bob:

Such a neat little store.

Colorado-type wood colors:

Saved the pic of your paints and started a "Scenery Tips" text file. Am I correct in assuming that such paints work best on wood? With plastic, do I need to stay with something more solvent based?

Thanks!

Andre

Your little meat market packs a lot of punch in a small package.

Thank you Mike. I think it will have more punch when I get the meat hanging,

Andre, I use then on everything. You just have to thin them for the Airbrush. On the engines I use Vallejo as they have better quality and smaller grain size but everything else is craft colors.

Bob:

All I have is an old diaphragm compressor. Works great with solvent based Floquil, but it's my understanding such doesn't put out enough PSI to shoot acrylics?

Not true Andre. Just thin to the consistency of skin milk. spray thin coats, let dry about 5 seconds and apply next thin coat, repeat until you have desired coverage.

And The market is done, until I find chickens and other products to hang from the porch rafters.




This is next.



This is the last structure for Miller's Slough. Then it will be time for land forming.

That turned out great!

Same kit mfg'er? (Wild West?)

Neat stuff. I could use several structures with that type of log side.

Mike, Andre, Thank you for kind comments.

Andre, Yes, it's a Wild West kit. There are other kits that feature this type of log construction. RR laser Kits have some(more modest in scope and Cost) and the Kirbe Old West series one of the buildings (the Hotel ?) feature this squared log construction. Several of Continental plastic kit MFGs have "hunter cabins" that are round log cabins. All look Rocky mountain to me.

Bob:

Log construction...

Hancock, CO on the DSP&P has the "look" (lots of log use) I would like on my layout as can be fitted:






Can't tell too much about logs in this pic of the town of Congress, CO (near the Silverton RR), but it does convey another look I love, that of rough-hewn structures set among the spruce, narrow dirt "streets" (wagon trails), etc:

Thanks for the pictures. The towns are larger but the Slough will resemble these views. More water, more fir but they show the general idea.Bob
