Sounds like your package was frozen, you probably have a claim against the carrier.  What a pain-in-the-ass.

Right there with you John - once had an issue with Scalecoat (Minute Man) paint that arrived in the same condition. Notified the company and they over nighted a replacement. Sadly that type of customer service is becoming rare.

I think this happens a lot with acrylic paints. I bought it through Amazon but their return it to their drop off site policy defeats the whole purpose of mail delivery.  It would cost me more to return it. I have a feeling that I'm going to be doing a lot less mail order purchasing when this virus thing is over.

Yes it is, and filling a claim cost me more than I through away on the paint. Lesson learned - moving on.

Today, I cut the baseboard for this build and did a rough fit for the structures in location on the layout.
 
Here are a few photographs of this process. At this point the baseboard will be brought back to my workbench and the structures will be glued on.

Thank you for the encouraging words - this one has a lot of stitching to do, yet. This afternoon, I got the main building glued down to the baseboard and started adding the adjacent buildings.

A couple more progress photographs.  The add-on buildings have been glued down and the roof cards added.  The glue is still drying on the right side addition.  The stonework has been colored - I used 6 different colors of chalk and applied it with Alcohol. I started with individual stones and then came in an blended it with my soft brush.












Next up: Roofing on the additional buildings and rafter tails. The rest of the detail castings have been primed and need the detail paint.
