Had a request for a close-up of the faucet and sink plus the stove so here they are. I'll have more updates later tonight. The coffee pot just needs a shot of blue with speckles of white.

Lots of progress today and the hold up was the floor. I couldn't decide what to do so I drew up some planks on the computer and printed them out on card stock. It'll get some dirt added before final assembly. Here's a mock up couple shots with most everything in place. I have a few smaller items to finish up as well as the functioning door and interior window frame. Big ticket item still remaining is the lift off top. Have a couple of ideas on how I'd like it to fit so I'll work on that in a few days.

I attempted to make some folded up blankets with watered down Elmer's along with some colored pigment and they're drying at the moment. We'll see how they look in the morning. Since this is my first attempt at this, I'm expecting to need to redo them.

Fantastic!

Missed you at the club meeting last night, but I see you were being productive nonetheless!

Looking great, Brad. Let me know when you plan to bring it to a club contest ... I won't waste my time or effort bringing anything. That's pure winner! Money! Wow!



You and Hollywood/Peoria Jim are gonna be going head-to-head a lot!

James - thanks man. I can see that guy too.

Thanks Ira. I really appreciate that.

Randy D - Thanks for following along but it is you with the mad skills. So glad you're back.

Danno - Thanks. Yea, I was planning on going but once I looked up Louis' address, I changed my mind. Yogurt would never make it that far. I'm not going to give you any advance notice when this will show up at a club meeting, You'll just find out when it arrives like everyone else. :D

Now back to the build. Spent a good deal of the day yesterday building the roof structure. I still have the corregated roofing material to do and its currently rolled up in a glass to try to get it to maintain its curved shape. Then I'll drill it for the little brass brads before painting and weathering it. Here's a couple of pix of it.

Thanks Alan. You read my mind on the oil lamp for the back door. I've made a candle plus holder for the inside. Now, about that cat or dog, I'll have to devise something. Leaning more towards a dog though.

Stay tuned for more.

Just thought of a detailing tip for the window glass. That old glass was really wavy, one could brush some white glue on one side in different areas and build it up in different areas to create the wave effect .............

Yeah, this is coming together in a great way. Love it!

I still haven't found the issue with the article on Pat Coverts build. Anyone happen to know which one it's in?

And Brad, the HBO show "Carnivale" is loaded with long scenes inside very detailed carny coaches. Depression era, and great set detail. Might be worth a look for those final details.
