I have been waiting on some spare parts for my O scale sawmill and this arrived in the mail.

I also needed a break from that huge thing so this seemed to fill the bill.

I have been fiddling with it for about a week now.


Here are some shots of my progress.




















The kit comes with parts to make the base of this shed in wood but I decided I wanted the base to be an old cement slab instead.

The gaps around the bottom will be back filled with the scenic base when it gets installed where ever it ends up.










The loading platform hides most of it anyway.

I see that you did the peeling paint thing with mineral spirits and latex--looks great.

Better nail that 2nd floor door shut!

Rich could fix you up with a nice set of stairs to avoid lawsuits.

Superb. Love the hexagonal windows!!!

The weathering/detailing is great as usual. That flat roof will give problems!

Cheers

Phil

Thanks!

Herbie I am working on the stairs now.

I should finish this up just about the time my parts arrive for the mill.

I was told they would ship this week. :glad:  :2t:

No the shingles are in the kit....Bar Mills....they have a new line of HO and O scale shingles for sale as well...pretty nice.


I worked on the dormer and the roof shingles this morning.
















I finished up the 2nd story landing as well as the stairs but figured I would work on the roof before I install those so as not to break them up while handling the model.

The new shingles look really heavy are they still a paper texture sticky on the back? I just ordered a few little neat buildings from them but I doubt they will come with these type of shingles.

Any chance of a run down on how you finished the shingling weathering, I'm kinda at a standstill on my Wicked wandas roofing weathering.
