Russ, I like the "featheriness" of the singles/clapboard. It looks very good to my eye. Its great to see you posting something from your own bench here. Keep it up.

I've added eaves and rafters, the final strips of card, to the warehouse. The loading dock and stairway will complete the model. Both will be real wood. The photos may not look a lot different from the last pair but little details always are like that: Lots of time for a minor change in appearance. -- Russ

Hello Russ,

even when watching the enlarged images, the paper as such can not be seen, I like it.

Russ, those eaves and rafter tails do add to the model. It will be good to see the loading dock and stairs add the finishing bits to this one.

Okay, it's finally complete. The stairs are laser cut from Crystal River Products. The left-hand structure is from about 2008 and, as I've said, I designed the two to fit together as office and warehouse. -- Russ

And a close up to show why I like to use paper for scales up to about 1:48 or 1:32. The thickness is often more accurate than that of milled wood. Besides, my photo editing skills vastly surpass my painting and weathering skills. -- Russ
