    Turned out very nice Jeff. I really love the weathering and exist staining you did you. Some where in one of my old books there is a color picture of a war weary fort that looks just like what you've done there. I'll post it if I can find it.

    Right now they are in the basement on the top shelf of my son's gun smithing and ammo reloading desk. Eventually the old shelves from my den will make their way to the basement and that is where they will reside.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    It looks great in the sun light Jeff.
    Just noticed though - something that was bugging me earlier - have you left the masking on the window of the rear entrance door ?
