Looking great Karl, as always!  The tones to the paint and weathering are fabulous.  Not too overdone.  Just enough!  Will be following!

Hey Guys:

Finished the flat roof on the main building today. Added one of my favorite billboards. I added the 5  metal detail castings to the billboard.

Hey Guys:

Been working on the peaked roof and water tank. The roofing is Papercreek corrugated. Been working on the water tank. The boards on the water tank are one piece. This didn't work as when I wrapped it around the tank it kept splitting. So I cut each individual board and applied them separately. Worked much better.

Looks great Karl!  Like others have said, the billboard is a real eye catcher.  The walls look terrific in driftwood.
