|As one can see I have glued and squared up the building flat using Canopy cement. The windows stack, sign and base are seen in this view. I exclusively use Canopy cement on my wooden structures.|
|All the corner trim is included on additional sheeting that is glued in place. the DV Ross will be covered up.|
|Everything is now glued together with painting and weathering beginning shortly.|
|The roof is almost complete. A shorter stack is applied and two roof vent will be applied shortly. I added some tar paper seams with gloss coat.|
Since my model is going to be part of a new wooden milling complex at Bellows Crossing my signs for the original structure is applied over the DV Ross lettering. I added some wood trim around the sign to box it in and hide the edges.
When I was finished with the structure I though some extra detail was required. Actually after taking the first group of finished model photos I thought it was still too plain. I added two stacks to the roof made from styrene spur material. I then added two electrical stacks on the front of the building. The wire is dipped in Blacken-it then weathered with Bragdon rusts....the captions cover the rest with a nice group of finished model photos to follow in the next post...George Dutka
