Rumor has it Sol that Petermac has graciously agreed to be the official roller upper, anytime I need it done! :pedal:pedal:pedal

Wayne :lol::lol::lol:

PS: Actually it will only be changed occasionally to give a different view for pictures. Thanks for volunteering Petermac! :mutley

Sadly I can't see the pictures of your latest efforts, if you have created a roll up door that works and lookes the part then that is no mean achievement in this scale. I will book mark this so I can take a look when I get home (unless someone nominates the picture as a picture of the week, 'cos I can view those!) hint hint. 

Whatever it looks like I am enjoying following this. As with every project you undertake you seem to set impossible goals but through innovation, patience and very neat modelling you always come up with very fine results.

Novice, thanks for that vote of confidence, but is no big thing. Is it a roll up door, Yes! Does it roll up? Yes! Will I roll it up? Not very often! (Sorry Petermac)

While it does roll up, it is not very easy to do so. In fact if I had to do it with the Tool Shed mounted an a layout, I doubt if it could be done. It just binds up too much. I will probably leave the Tool Shed loose (not attached) on the layout so that every once in awhile Petermac can "Roll It Up!". :cheers

This morning I have completed the construction of the Tool Shed, including the making of the back slider doors. In fact it already has a coat of white gesso on it in preparation of the paint.

So now there are three buildings left to build on the Proctor Farm. The Garage, Grainery, and the Sugar Shack. I will bring out the drawing board next and pick one of them to get started on.

Wayne

Here are the two remaining pictures of the Tool Shed showing the other end (from the roll up door). The doors on this end are old sliding type.





The painting starts today.

Funny you say that Petermac! When I do make a mistake, my very first thought is: Oh it's OK, I'll just leave it that way, then I think, "I can't post it like that", so off it comes and the repair squad moves in. This forum is a built in quality control program! :doublethumb

Wayne what make is the plasticard you use it looks ouite thick stuff

The slaters embossed stuff you generally see here in the uk is very thin

I have a number of (i will say this quietly) scratchbuilds items to do and need to find out what plasticard materials are really available to buy.

cheers Brian

Wayne, the quality of the build is quite superb, I cant wait to see the final roller door and it all painted up!

Brian, by far the bulk of what I used is Evergreen products. I do use some Plastruct, they have more selections of specialty sheets, like cut stone, shingles that kind of thing, but everything I've used on the Tool Shed and also this Grainery is from Evergreen.


Here are two photos of the Prototype Grainery.




As you can see this will be quite simple compared to what has been done in the past. It will go quite quickly also. In fact it is going so fast I forgot to take pictures! :pedal




I guess I knew that would happen, that's why I put all four of these in the same thread.

The entrance door here will be bonded in place, no need to have it open, beside the hinges here are on the outside, and I have not come up with an idea on how to make them to scale!

Wayne

I am making real progress on the last four buildings of the Proctor Farm. The grainery has a few coats of paint on it, and I have already built the Sugar Shak. It is quite small and very simple, before I knew it I had already bonded everything together, so here is what it looks like.

First the prototype pictures.





It will be fun to try and make the roof look like the rust in the last picture!

And here is the model.




Only one coat of red paint, and it is even still wet in these photos. It will take at least two more coats before I can start the weathering process. I just received a new weathering brush that, I hope, has great potential in making the wood sides look like they need a fresh coat of paint.

Wayne

Max, I will show you the brush in my next post, no picture right now.

Wow, I'm either getting faster or something but the weathering of the three buildings, Tool shed, Grainery, and Sugar Shak, has only taken my about two hours. I think I am not as scared to place the brush on the model as I was on the Silo!

Anyway here are five photos that show the three building. I still have very small areas on each model that need some touching up, but I am well pleased with the results. If anyone of you have any advice to help in making these look better weathered, or just plain better models, please tell me.







That gap at the second panel up on the roll up door looks hugh in this picture. The actual model doesn't look so bad, but you can see the gap. Maybe I should take it apart and fix it, but hey, old roll up doors had that same look to them didn't they? :roll:

The garage is next!
Wayne
