Hi Chuck

I just love the last photo with the tree shadow. This does look absolutely real. In fact more alive, more lovely than the real thing! It is art, and the best kind.

Cheers

Thanks you guys! I have a feeling there are suddenly a bunch of trees surrounding that store! I'll try not to overdo it though. Wink

I found that a foam earplug helped apply gouache and powders to the ridges of the corrugated. The earplug was unused; I'll let others test the efficacy of earwax in the weathering process. Tongue

Thanks...THANKS! Good question Jerry. I bought a big bag at Rocklers (woodworkers supply) some years back. No brand info, sorry.

The need for 16 roof panels (only 3 done) sent my interest plummeting. I hate roofs. So as the sun sets over the Smokey Mountains, we bid adieu to this project; this one has risen before; it may again, but for now it is on to bigger and hopefully better things.

Chuck - I know that feeling the difference being with my models they hit the bin were you put them away for another day -but give us some hope and keeping sending something to inspire us and please relieve us of the suspense of your "bigger and better projects for the future" I'm dribbling already just of the thought of another work of art from the master of inspiration

That last photo is fantastic, Chuck.
Thanks for posting the ear-plug pic, too.  It provides a sense
of scale that makes the project even more amazing.
