That's a lot of corrugated metal there, Steve.

I like the interior details on both your projects, Rob & Glen.

I added a sign (named after Granddaughter Lily) and a corral to the barn on the first of my Challenge projects.



I've made more progress on the second project named after Lily's twin sister Kate, too. Update pictures likely tomorrow.

There is a whole lot of very nice work being demonstrated here in a number of scales. Well done, folks! Well done indeed!

So many amazing models being built. Here is an update on one of my projects for the challenge.

It is from the draw and scratch build category.

Larry, the brick structure looks great. The arch came up really nice, and I like the stepped brick at the top.
Wonderful eye for the detail. Looking forward to the wrecked roof.

Thanks fella's for your nice comments, and Steve for the info about the seed shed. Interesting.

Glen, so impressed with the amount of interior detail you have added to this small station, even down to some magazines.
Lucky the roof is removable to view it all.

I couldn't put off the shingles forever, so have started on the main roof.
I cut all my shingles by hand into strips, and then randomly change a few for variety.
Got half the main roof done. With the grey card I used, it's a little hard to see, but will look better once painted.

Glen nice job on the station; the details look great and add a lot of character to the building.

Bruce the barn turned out great; nicely done. Twin Granddaughters that's awesome.

Larry nice job on the structure!! The arch came out really well as well as the raised brick on the front.

Robert the roof looks good so far. I can see where it could be a little tedious but should be well worth the effort when done.

I've got my train room mostly put back together. I found a kit that a friend gave me to do for his layout. Its a small company house from Blair Line. I'm going to add a small kitchen lean too to it so I guess that covers 1 and 2. I will try to post some photos tomorrow.

There's a lot of fine work being done here.

I've finished my shingle work and I'm now planning the loading dock for the ice station.

That's a different view George to your other thread. Have the painters started on a fresh coat of paint ?

Thanks, Mike.

Rob, there will be a painter on a ladder doing the white paint and one on the ground doing the blue.

The walls of Kate's Kitchen are just about ready to glue together. I just need to add a few more window treatments.
