HI Jan:

I'll be watching this one. Built it some time back. If I remember you can move the water tank towards the end on the building and build one leg support on the outside of the building. I suggest this for more interest. Correct me if I have forgotten and am wrong.

Yep! That's an interesting idea, Karl.
Thanks for the suggestion ;)

Hey all.
I started to work on the interior bracing and added the first colour on the walls. I was looking for those greyish old tones on the wood....

I took this kit up to the cottage a few weeks ago to light up and build for the National Train Show. My booth was next to Bar Mills so I thought it would be nice to have at the show. However, I am the polar opposite of Karl when it comes to construction speed. If I were to set up a camera on my work bench and do one of those time lapse things you would probably see age spots appear on my hands and watch my knuckles swell.  :P

Yep! thanks for your comments chaps!!

An update :)
The walls are painted. Maybe they need some weathering once glued, I think, the peeling effect is so tenuous.....not?

 



Thanks for looking!
