Roger,

Looks incredible. I thought they were FSM wall castings when I saw the first picture.

Question for you - given all the careful work and effort you put into the molding and casting process, do you believe that it resulted in less effort than if you had just built the whole thing from individual stones? Or maybe the same question a different way -- if you were to start again from scratch, would you do it the same way?

Cheers,
Vince

And we're back.    Thank you for all the nice comments while I've been away. 

Just a quick update today.  I applied rolled roofing to the train shed and wanted to move forward but I was stuck as to how to access the "urchin's nest" up in the rafters.  Then it struck me; cut open the roof for the clearstory and make it removable.  With the plan settled I moved ahead with glueing the roof panels in place.   They still need painting and weathering.



More to come soon.

Cheers!

Great build, like the way you have done the stone work.
Like the urchin hidey hole.
Thanks for sharing you build post.

I made it into the work room last night and spent the time designing and building the core for the clearstory.  Its made from black and natural chipboard.  I will cover the ends with individual boards and build up the vent grids from strip wood.  The roof will get the same rolled roofing as the main roof.  The clearstory will be removable so that I can access the urchin hideout.
