WOW!! I just posted a very long message and somehow deleted the whole thing while trying
to add a photo.

Here we go again but not so long.

Thanks for your input Greg, Dave, Fred, Pete, and Carl,very much appreciated.

I have been mulling and mulling my next project and have decided on what I consider a
beautiful Victorian Cottage. I have had some photos saved on my computer for a long time
and I forget where they came from, maybe Shorpy. My problem is that in four photos I
still only have shots of the front. I guess I could dream up the other three sides but
somehow I don't feel right about that, it sort of destroys the originality of the real
structure. What I have decided to do is to make it a "front only" model with maybe only
an inch or so sides to make it a low dept building like we make background structures
for our model railroads. (not counting the depth of that large front porch).

It will be a slow go project at least at the start between now and the holidays as my
model building time will be severely limited.

Here starts the first real model on volume 5. (photo below)

Thatís a gem of a house with wonderful details, some unusual, particularly the little lookout or dovecote at the peak of the house.

Thanks for your comments and support Carl, Dave, Bill, Greg, Mike, and Mark, all much appreciated.

HOLD THE PRESSES! HOLD THE PRESSES, HOLD THE PRESSES.

Looks like a MAJOR change coming on this project.

Fred Terrell has worked his magic in finding photos on the web and he has come up with one
that shows pretty good the right side of the structure. While I still do not know what the
left side looks like I can at least make something that "could be", something in line
with what the right side looks like. I don't need the back because most of my structures do
not have a back-side anyway. While I no longer have the model railroad I still build as if I did.

I am in the thinking it out, how to make various parts, planning the structure, time of building
so I will not have a lot to actually post for quite some time.

THANK YOU FRED !!

Bob

Fred's photo also suggests that there is much more to the back of the building, it show a HINT of
more roofs back there but they do not exist for this project.
