Really like the Photo-Etch fire escape, where are they from?  I have done a lot of 1/35th scale Photo-Etch, I find them fun to build.

A BIG Thanks to all the folks who share their knowledge, and for giving me the inspiration to push the limits in this great hobby!

This one came with the SWMW kit but I believe Bob got them from Sheepscot.  I don't know if they are still available.  Can anyone help with that question?

I know that Dario at Rail Scale Miniatures picked up SWMW's castings, but not sure if he happened to get anything that came along with it passed through to Sheepscot. You could ask Dario

Thank you, I'm getting back on this build today after my two weeks away from the workbench. I need the therapy.

Here is a process photograph.  I completed the rafter tails and have the front half of the roofing on the axillary buildings.





The question of the day, can I finish this by the 15th of April.  Uncle Sam gave us an extension on our taxes do we get the same extension for our build challenges??? :-[

Today, I got back on this project and made some progress. I completed the roof materials on the axillary buildings and got started on the weathering process for the roofing.

I also made the final adjustments and dry fit the fire escape before sending it to the paint booth. It has a fresh coat of black paint and will be ready for installation, tomorrow.
