Thanks Curt, Dave and Jan!  Much appreciated. 

I know I repeat myself quite a bit from one thread to the next.  Heck I repeat myself a lot in real life too.  ::)  When I create a thread I just run under the assumption that there may be one person that's new to reading one of my threads.  The rest of you have to put up with the redundancy.    :D  Just like the people who know me in real life.   ;D ;D


I don't mind. I don't mind.
Thanks,
Donato

Biding my time till I can start my layout and build nice stuff like all you folks .... (said with envy). :-)

Bob,

Wow, off to a great start. This kit is one of my all time favorites from FOS.

Oh yes, I'll be following along on this adventure as well. Thank you for the build - I guess I'll be buying the BBQ for the rest of our lives. Well worth it to me. ;D ;D


Tom ;D

I have to keep earning my BBQ!   :) 

I thought about changing the colors on this one.  White with Dark Green trim is pretty predominate on your layout but I really liked the looks of it on this one so I keep it as is.  White was a pretty common color for buildings anyway so it's justifiable.

I'm looking forward to working on this one.   :D


Bob,

The White with Green trim is fine by me. I love the look as well.

Many of the wood building in late 40's early 50's in the south were either all white or white with a color trim.

Yepper, I don't see you buying any BBQ in the near or distance future.

Tom ;D

Bob,

Wow, those walls look wonderful. Great job on the build and the tutorial.

It's always a joy to follow your builds, especially when the build is coming to the Atlantic and Southern RR.

Another great build and thread. As to your approach to build threads - don't change a thing. Even if you do repeat something it's great to have the information right there in the thread.  I find that the techniques I'm using evolve over time and having a history is good to have to improve my own modeling. I also find, that I look back at build threads to help remember how I did something - like the coloring on my Stone Roundhouse now that I'm building a companion building that I want to match.


I'm enjoying your thread - I will be following along.
