Thanks Dwyane!  :up:

Got the dirt down:


Started working on the Erie B-2 steam crane. Very slow going:


I have very little patience for all these tiny parts. I came very close to using the pieces for scrap at the scrap yard!!!  P[:

I'll keep going....for now  ;)

Fence looks good, but I love the shed.

Thank you sir!  :up:

Well, I decided to try Bar Mills "InstaFence" for that scrap yard. The boards are on a sprue to hold the spacing:



After putting the sections together, I gave it a wash of gray paint thinned with alcohol:






Next I'll finish the ground cover...or at least the dirt.

Here is the last structure put in place temporarily:


In front of that structure will be a scrap yard with a looooooong fence. I will put the groundcover down on the backside of where it will be so I don't have to work over it. I removed all the structures and painted the foam a light brown:


Next I will have to screen some soil....hope I have enough for this section. If not I will have to get the shovel out again  :up:

I think you are right about them being there to keep from hitting the building. If they were electric conduit they would have to go around the doors.

There are actually 2.....one at the top and one near the bottom. The prototype has them....they look like conduits or pipes. My first thought was that they were there there to keep things from scraping along the building. Check out the prototype pic at the top of the page, and tell me what you think.
