I think I've discovered Murphy's Law of Model-Making: A spilled bottle of solvent will always flow towards a stack of recently completed styrene details.

The Engine is neat I like the way you solved the small covers.

About that Murphy's Law of Model Making, I can confirm its existence. Fortunately, the damage was minor but I can say that .030 Evergreen is no match for half a bottle of solvent. Oh well ...

After a very lengthy hiatus from modeling, I'm finally starting to get back into it a little. Currently I'm trying to finish up the two incomplete projects I'd been working on before. One of these is the Grizzly Bar saloon. I last worked on this almost a year ago. Here's where I left off:




Since then I've painted and weathered the upper portion to look like old wood with faded/peeled paint. The corrugated metal was painted with two-part rust from Sophisticated Finishes. I also put corrugated metal on the roof of the patio. Signs were made by printing out the designs onto self-adhesive vinyl, which was then cut out as a stencil:











Because the roof has warped a little, I had to curve the lettering slightly:





The windows and doors were painted separately prior to installing the glass:





I added security bars to the patio door. These were made from styrene:





The building is now complete except for the lights and some interior details:








Enjoy!

Ray, Yo've still got the touch. The styrene looks like weathered wood and rusted metal and the Saloon fits right in to the town.

Really nice work! Glad to see you back at it again. Hopefully iíll Be off the disabled list soon. Detached retina in February, severL surgeries, laser treatments, and the most incredible pain Iíve ever experienced, I have another surgery this Wednesday that will hopefully take care of it all. One hard part is not having any depth perception, which for someone with Parkinsonís on heavy painkillers is not a good candidate to use sharp knives. So I putter a lot and you and Chuck and everyone else here inspire me to keep going ...
