Karl,

I look forward to seeing your progress on this kit.

I have seen other versions and think your version will turn out great, as usual.

Sort of curious to see how long it takes as well.

Have fun.

Hey Dave:

Not sure about the floor. I will check the directions and see what I can tell you.

Karl,

The framed walls look great, nice technique. Is this something new you tried or something SW came up with, just curious.  Either way, you did a great job on  them.

Hey Guys:

Need an opinion on this. This if peeling paint. What color looks best?

Left to right over Black A&I wasH:

All Floquil Colors--- Antique White, Reefer White and Zinc Chromate Primer.

Thanks for your input.

Karl

For an utility structure, the red on the right looks best.  Save that weathered blue color for an old house.  (Blue pigment wasn't cheap, so it would be unlikely on a railroad/logging structure.)

Hey Dave:

Thanks for the reply. That is not actually blue it Antique white. I sent the picture to my friend I'm building it for. I will let him make the choice. Also said he could do just A&I wash. No peeling paint.

That middle one looks good for an exterior.  Looks like a sun bleached version of the left most paint job.
