Great work, as always, Karl...I consider this thread the supplement to Brett's instructions for the SWSM kit I'm diving into next

Hi All:

Been working on the Tool Shed. All separate boards. Stained with A&I first then dry-brushed with Floquil Zinc Chromate as I did not have the color Box Car Red in the instructions. Here's A few photos. Hope it looks OK.

Looking good Karl.  Are you building a diorama with all these kits or are they destined to be a new town on your railroad?

Hi Bruce:

Thanks for the compliment.

I'm building these kits for a friends 35 X 45 foot layout. He requested I not put them into A Diorama so they can be installed on the layout the way he wants them to be.

Hi All:

finished the Tool Shed yesterday. I really liked this one because of all the detail it has. I painted the large pipe rust. I didn't care for it so I painted over them with black. The rust showing through the black was some type of chemical reaction. I liked it so I left it that way. Hope it looks OK.
