Hip and ridge caps look good, John.  Finishes it off nicely.

Cheers, Mark.

Thank you for following along and the kind words.


I added LED lights inside so the light will shine through the windows.  This kit does not come with interior detail - I gave some thought to adding some but decided it was going to be to far back on my layout to be able to see it.

John,

Always love your structure builds. Always learning something new on how to do something.

That is one beautiful looking building.

I'm in the process of building all the little buildings that attach to the main build. The boiler house is currently going together.

Update:  I continued with the assembly of the attached buildings. As soon as I have them all together I will be cutting a baseboard and starting to layout the scene.  I want to arrange things in location on the layout before gluing any of the structures down.


I'm still waiting for the paint for the tower.  I ordered it on February 2 and it was shipped on February 3rd. The USPS tracking shows it in transit. It came out of Florida and it was supposed to be delivered on Feb 6th. I'm giving them until next Wednesday (1 month) and I will reorder and ask for UPS or Fed Express shipping.

Update:  Well my Arbor Green paint arrived yesterday, it took 4 weeks for it to get from Florida to Michigan.  That's the good news.  The paint was one big rubbery blob in the container.  I either got old stock or it froze and kicked sitting in a cold truck for a month.  So I learned an important lesson - no more paint will be purchased by mail. The days of going to the store for craft paint are coming back and I will work around with the paint I have on hand until then.


So, I got out the chalks and painted the roof for the tower. I like it and will be taking some pictures and posting them later in the day.

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.
