Here is another progress picture of the G. Wilikers build. Added the roof to the warehouse and a couple more sheds.  I have a few more sheds in various stages of assembly on my workbench.  The unfinished area above the side shed is where the platform attaches.  At least that is what the instructions said, when I said "George what did you do to me here", and went and read them.  ;)  As soon as the sheds are all complete I will be adding the platform. You will also notice that the braces under the canopy roof in the front are now both the same length. That is why we take pictures from different angles. :-[

John,
 The barn kit came out fantastic !
Can't wait to see the photos with the lights on.
G. Wilikers is moving right along too.
 Glad that the Siekirk Roofing company has been kept busy this fall season.

Thank you for the kind words.  The Siekirk Roofing company loves these FSM kit jobs, they get to use up all the left over materials from the last dozen jobs.  Each shed has a different roofing material.

Thank you Dennis, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.  I think you are right about Karl's speed.

I started adding the land forms to the Beach Farms diorama.  I start with foam - I like to paint it black so nothing shows through.  I then add sand to create the final shape.  After that it's all scenic materials and details.



















The foam gets a coating of waterproof glue before I start adding the sand with water soluble Elmer's glue.

Here is what it looked like after the glue had dried for awhile.  It should be ready for the next step in the morning.

John, that is a spectacular piece of work. Gorgeous. Really hits the spot for an Illinois granger guy's eye.
