Don't worry Fabian,
There is so much nice work on this website it is really hard to keep up with it all. I have to limit my time here or I would never get anything done in the rest of my endeavors.

Hi Jerry,

There are so many exceptional elements to your work here, I'd be writing all day!

Not knowing exactly where to start, I praise you on all of your models, and I am not being patronizing.

With great admiration, Fred!

Smallish update. My eyes were not up to painting figs so I made a small part of the street for under this building. Just a base coat of paint is on so don't pile on me yet.
I also touched up the paint on the building a bit. More to do of course. Found a nice street number plate.
Not too bad for a few huors work.




Still needs some rain gutters and other small details but starting to shape up.

Hi Jerry - nice update. Plenty going on with that little house - I admire your bravery for trying that roof! I know, not the subject of today's post - but, between the pitch and the tiles - quite a handful. Paving is coming right along

I was expecting your next post to be something like scale, operable cigarette lighters for your "other" project! Glad to hear that even you need a break from that level of work (!)

Take it easy -

Nick

Hahaha,
That would be something to pull off wouldn't it? Sort of like some guy pulling out a splinter with tweezers in 1/35.
Hmmmmmm?
I did give a passing thought to lighting though and maybe a shadowbox?

Looks good Jerry. I like the variation of your roof tiles too. You are in the zone on this one.

Thanks for the words of support buddies! Feeling a bit better today but why push it? I will take a few more days off on the tiny detail work.

Far too many Vets are sadly no longer with us. Thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and fellow vets who will miss him. His service was not in vain.

Can't believe three months have gone by already. I looked at all these buildings today and you can't believe how dusty they are already.

Sorry for this bump.
I wanted to check something on this thread and I can't figure out if there is a search engine on this forum or not.
So I had to bump this to keep from always looking back. Sorry again folks,nothing new here.
