Looks really good, Karl. 

I like that ridge capping.

Cheers, Mark.

Karl, Nice work on this kit--the roof in particular. I'm just getting caught up on posts.

That's some pretty impressive modeling Karl.  Everything you've built looks fantastic. 

I am curious on how you are able to paint so many castings in what appears to be a short period of time.  These always seem to take forever for me to do.  Any hints you would be willing to share?

Hey Bruce:

Thanks for the great compliment. Most of the castings are items that are wood based. I tape them to a pice of plywood and spray paint them with Krylon aomouflage #4295 sand. Looks just like Floquil Earth. Then all the details are painted by hand. Metal barrels are all painted by hand. Some are painted one color and others are painted red or green with a white middle band.

Thanks for the info Karl.  I will have to give that a try.  I've been dinking around with an O Scale structure that is in need of detail parts.  I guess there's another order to Rusty Rails in my future.
