Hey Bruce:

I have the rest of the kits to build for this also. They will not be added together until they are put onto my friends layout.

Hi jerry & John:

thanks guys appreciate your input. Here's where I am on bunk number 1. Glued main roof down and added the vents,  Need to do the roofs and then add the cap shingles.

I hope you will post some pictures when everything is put into your friends layout.  That's going to make for one hell of a scene!

Hi Guys:

Bunk #1 if finished. Added a few signs and some newspapers. I started this June 13th so it took about a week to finish. Here's a few pics. Hope she looks OK. Brett said you could ad A piece of wood instead of cap shingles so that's what I did. A flat piece and a ridge piece on top. Got this idea from another kit I built years ago. I may put a rolled roof on bunkhouse #2.

Awesome job Karl. A week for you is a month for us mere mortals, but I'd love to build one of his kits.
