I recently ordered O'Neills Fabrication and the Brass Foundry - my first SierraWest kits. Can't wait to start them now.

Karl, are you using Hunterline stains by chance? The boards do look great. You're making good progress!

Hello Karl, I'm liking your build, although it seems more like a scratchbuilt board by board build than a kit. Great job on the weathering and aging.   Jeff

Hey Dennis, Curt, Steve, Jeff and Steven:

Thanks for all the great compliments. Much appreciated as always. Jeff yes the whole kit is board by board. Very time consuming. Dennis glad you like how the siding looks.

Thanks Again Guys:

I see your up to your usual outstanding modeling.


Great coloring on those walls.
