Looking good "ten fingers".  Will you be posting progress photos of your other project you'll be working on?
 Thanks for the compliment. I will not be posting pics of the other project. That I will leave up to the recipient, if they so choose to do so. You can always get a first hand look anyways.....

Beautiful. Your tar around the roof vents is nice and "trim." Not three scale feed wide like mine are. My recollection is that I used toothpicks to apply a mixture of white glue and Polly S Grimy Black it but they still came out very fat and blobby. What is your technique?

 Thanks for the compliment, I use a .008 wire dipped in the mix. These actually came out thicker than normal, as I wanted a darker mix, so I added some black paint to the grimy, but did not want to thin with water......

Well! these are not the final photos, but I made some good progress. George really put a lot of detail on this roof. I still have to weather the roof, and finish the pipes from the pump house, and add the front canopy (which is built). I could not fit all the pieces into the pics, but for the final ones they will be present.
I am going to put this build on hold for just a little while, as I have another project I have started on, that I need to get done for a member here. Thanks for taking a look, hopefully I can finish this up within the next couple months.....

Hey All,
 Been a while since I have posted, but I have been making progress on the roof and such. I should have some close to final pics in a couple of days. Mean while, here are three beauties that I picked up over the past couple of weeks. The Tap & Die, was in the first 100-150 kits, as Bob V gave me the story on the price change. I will be back in a couple days....

I would like to try the "oil and grease" color but the Michael's near me doesn't carry it. 

 The oil and grease I have, and it is almost the same as the old Polly "oily Black"

The crane really came out looking great Loren!  Weathering is superb.  Nice addition to your "family" of kits.
 Thanks for the compliment......The family just keeps on growing.....bigger than the Partridge family now....
