Hi Guys:

Opps forgot I had to do the handrails before I started the shed. Here they are installed. Now on to the shed.

Karl, any tips on adding those rails to the existing structure?  That strikes me as difficult...

Hi Dave:

Thanks for asking the photo above is not the whole platform. See the previous photo. The building starts at the end of the cat walk. You will see how it works in my next photo when I finish building the end wall frames.

Hi Guys:

Got the shed over the track pretty much finished except for the roof and some details. Lots of work Board by board construction.

Looking good Karl. Love your subtle touch with the paint, stain, and washes.

I've only built this once. I wish I could get this for a reasonable price. Having built a number of scenes from scratch I just remember how well designed this kit was - and how much I learned.

Karl,

As usual, beautiful work. I love the weathering on the shed. Looks old and rusty!
