Hi Jim:

Thanks for the measurements. I'm doing mine as I did before in red. Check the kit photos.

Hi Guys:

The walls are stained with Floquil Driftwood stain. Yep I still actually have some.

Hi All:

Painted the walls red. Used thinner and paint to cause some of the gray underneath to show through. Was wondering if they look ok. Maybe I will finish a wall and see how it looks. However, am looking for opinions on how they look at this stage.

Thanks:

Karl

I like the color but maybe a little bright? Some India ink wash would help, I think. But then, I'm a faded paint junkie.....

Wow , Karl bright red , now that's something we don't see from you every day. I'm quite confident you will get a bright red building to look great just like your normal green ones.  ;)
I love photo's, don't we all.

Karl,

Off to a great start and I also agree the red TO red. Maybe more of the Floquil Driftwood will help tone it down a bit.

I only have three bottles of Driftwood left. And, I'm working on the CD for you.

Hi Karl


I just found your thread and you already have the walls painted. I agree with the comments so far. A little tone down may be in order.  I have the same problem with yellow - it usually turns out to bright until I wash it with a tone down color. I will be following along.

Hey BTW
was looking at my files and finally found the plastic that almost fits in those holes...It's the ones from Graves Elevator...they're a little smaller though.
 If you would be willing to burn those red walls (!)  I'll cut you new batch with smaller holes and send you the plastic windows...(and acetate cut for them!)
this is a pic with new windows...

Hi: Vince, Janbouli, Tom, John S, Jim Mooney, Ed & BobC:

Thank for the compliments and joining in on my build. It will be delayed for a few days as Jim is recutting the walls for me so I can use the plastic windows.

Karl
