    "factoid about the %15 reduction" yeah it was an eye opener on the grain elevator. I figured the square feet required and wrinkled up a box of pieces and went to work, I was way short! Russ

    Nice Russ
    Kinda like the fact that the Sintra(?) looks old and used(?)
    Never used the stuff before, but wondering if it was used or tearout?
    Kinda looks like Cherry trim on MBR door after wheelchair and stuff has hit it over 22yrs (IF I had painted instead of oiled).

    Bottles in Saloon looked kinda empty

    Scott, the distressed look is tear-out from the cheap plywood. Since the intent was a period look it was not a concern. On other models it would bother me a lot but on these not so much, The sintra is great stuff and cuts very clean and glues up with pvc cement. On the buildings it is most of the trim pieces like the arched window frames. I use sintra a lot for making my smaller models. Russ

    Thanks Russ,
    Yep...reminded me of my first old NH church....when population went up around 1800...they lifted it Way up...put granite foundation in, and then decided to lift it up some more to add a bottom floor
    Think the boards came from ALL over...and then of course painted the paint for 200 yrs
    The Church in this town predated the country by 10 yrs.....built by shipbuilders though...interesting joinery

    Period building is Good!

    Figured you got paid in trade for the saloon judging by doorknobs on church

    Thanks!
