    Excellent modeling Ron!
    I really like the 'deteriorating' roof! :cool:

    Thanks for all the good comments, encourages one to do more, thanks again.
    The furry thing is another hungry stray cat that has just shown up, he is very friendly but starving, we live in a farm area and get lots of dumped animals, this one is just one of many, and I can not see an animal go hungry or hurt, just soft at heart I guess..Ron.

    Ron, beautiful work. I have to ask, is that N scale?. I seem to remember that you are in N scale, but this building looks so detailed that I would think it is in HO. If it IS N scale, then what did you use for the windows, it doesn't look like the standard Grandt Line windows.
    Again, beautiful building.

    Hi Ron,
    Thats a real beaut of a scratchbuilt structure, the part I like the most is the roof details and shingles. Well done.

    This can't be a real modeler's bench - it is clean, uncluttered, neat in appearance.....:D :D :)

    Very nice structure Ron. The detail looks very sharp and I am looking forward to seeing the "completed" roof in your follow on shots.
