Beautiful work, Frank.  I do love the pigeons!


Jeff


Jeff,


Thank you for your kind words and for your pigeons. They really add something to the building. I need to add a little pigment near the birds to illustrate " what the pigeons add to the building"! Thanks again for the birds.


Frank / Erieman


It wouldn't be a Erieman build without the bird s**t.


John,


You have been here so you know how many building s have birds and accompanying B.S. on them.

Frank,
           Great looking structure my friend! Enjoyed watching you put your fingerprints all over ACL's paybacks.  Equally will be watching where, how & why the rent a cop installs on his layout. :)  Thanks for sharing!  Thanx Thom... P.S.  How will you send to Tom?(fly, mail, drive, ups, drone) ???


Thom,



Tough call on how they are going to get to Florida. Needs serious consideration. Certainly not the USPS.

Planning on it. The next issue is whether to show the buildings separately as structures or make a diorama using both buildings. Any thoughts?

Good Morning ACL1504 and all others,


Well, now that the original Yakima Apples has been arranged into a module and ready for the Narrow Gauge Convention in a couple of weeks, it is time to start building #2. I constructed the base at the same time I did the first building. It has been sitting forlornly on the workbench for the past couple of months. Well, yesterday, I started construction on the the building and ordered some doors and windows. You never have enough doors and windows in your supply. Well, I do have enough  windows, but... It turns out that the 2 over 2 windows that i have in my window boxes, have been modified. The top of the good windows has a ledger board that extends beyond the side of the windows. Apparently, I built another structure where I removed the extension  and several of those windows are still in the  wrong box.


I have been cutting out the walls, adding window and door openings and bracing the walls. I am about half way and should have all the walls done later today. I'll post pic of the walls later today. Once all the walls are braced, I can start the painting process.  More later in the day.

Okay, Building two is in the first application of paint, well almost. There are a few more walls that need to be cut, braced, etc before saying that all walls are done. It has been some time since i built the first of this building and its like starting all over again. I have also had to order some more doors and windows, but they should be here soon. I cut a hole in the back to deal with the wiring. I found that i had cut a hole in the first large building, but not the second, so when I return from the NNGC, and remove the buildings from the diorama base, I will wire the first of these structures.


Building one for Tom is complete and mounted on a piece of foam awaiting the second building. Both will then be sent to him for installation on his wonderful new layout. Maybe by his birthday! Anyway, I'm not going to hurry on this build, so don't push me. Once all the panels have the first coat of paint, then I will add nail holes and other elements of weathering.  This building is assembled differently that the first as you will see in future photos.


Enough for tonight. Have to in an keep my bride happy and let her know that I am still alive.

Good Morning Tom,


I thought I would give you a status report on building two. Have had quite a few "Honey-do's" to finish, but I have been spending some time in the train room working on building two. As you will see in the attached photo. the base is done, the main structure is done and being painted with 3 coats of pigment, so far. The center roof walls are done and assembled and two coats of pigment have been applied. All the windows and doors have been painted and glazed and will be installed the remaining exterior walls are finally painted. So-o-o, progress is being made, my friend. Enjoy the pics, more soon. reemember to click on the pic and it gets nice and big so you can see all the details.

Excellent modeling.


Thanks Curt,


Well it has been a couple of weeks since my last post of building two of Yakima Apples. My wife and I drove Denver for the 37th National Narrow Gauge Convention. We are now back, the yard has been cleaned up and most of the honey do projects are complete, as if they ever are. Back at the building two. Finishing up the seemless roof. Still have a few seems to add, then prime and paint it.  Tom supplies two gooseneck exterior lights with LED's. The are installed and tested. The building is off the base to make it easier to assemble. The chimney is a combination of a Durango Press Victorian chimney and the brick column from Monster model works brick corners. When combined, the chimney looks great.


So that is the progress as of today. Here is a current pic. Hopefully more tomorrow. There is a deadline and it fast approaching.

Erieman,
       Whoa! I like how the siding is turning out!  That looks awesome with that type of roof.  I'd say great job, but.... AWESOME is much more to the point my friend.  Thanx Thom...

Hi Frank,

the siding and the roof look very nice, but the chimney looks top heavy and is going to fall over.

Thom,


 Thank you for your kind words. The roof is a real challenge, but worth it when it is done. I won't tell you how many pieces of the roof I had to cut to make the final roof - just saying. Actually, the first time I built this roof was difficult, but this time everything has gone quite smoothly, so far!!!


Glad you enjoy the pic.
