Don't think I've posted this here. This was for a 12'x12' shed contest. The O scale model is actually only 8'x8' .. the braces make it 12' sq. Oh well. Smiley

Ed --

These photos have an overwhelming blue cast to them ... whereas your earlier progress shots posted elsewhere showed some very pleasing color tones to your wood construction ...

Might consider color-correcting or re-shooting the final pix, as these don't do justice to the actual work!  (Kind of a back-handed compliment there, I guess ... the shed came out great, but these pix don't really show that.)

Cheers,
Dallas

Dallas. Hmmm. You're right. Today's a very nice day out .. quite sunny. I'll take it outside for a 'photo shoot'.

Ahh ha! I had the Color Balance on my camera set to Fluorescent .. was why I got photos that were bluish even taken in sunlight. Fixed that and they came out MUCH better!

I put the shed on a small oval plaque I had. At some point it will go on my layout

Here's the shed I modeled mine on .. found it by accident only about 20 miles from my house. How cool is that?

This is one of those models where I say yeah right what could be that decrepit and still stand.  The the photographic evidence is produced.

Very nice Ed. Captured the prototype's essence very well.

Nice job Ed.  The second set of pictures really show it off.
