Seems like you are working at MY speed.

Nice looking build so far.

Hi All:

Finally got the supply shed walls shingled. Next is the 1/8th inch bracing.

The wall looks good Karl.  Donato's picture took me a few seconds to figure out what I was looking at.

Hi All:

Was talking with Karl O the other day about this kit. He didn't like the shingled walls and neither do I. I have made new Clapboard walls. They are painted eath with A&I stain and dry-brushed with gray.

Karl O & Karl S comparing  notes it does not get any better.  Yes I do want to cast my vote for a much cleaner look when you take away the shingles.  Are you still using country grey for dry brushing.  I also noted Karl O revived an old topic at another forum.  Great to see him back
