New Photo from the National Building Museum Exhibit . . Just wanted to share a new photo from my recent exhibit at the National Building Museum. I have recieved many questions about my color choice and thought this was a good time to explain that. Overall, I usually build using a minimilist appraoch to both color and element selection, that said in this case there was not much of a choice as the structure in real life was entirely beige when construction began in 1936. Many modelers use light gray for the stone work, but actually this is not accurate. The stucco and native sandstone were originally a match, but over time the stone has weathered giving a darker color, but not gray as sandstone is a sandy/beige color. Anyway, I wanted the texture of the stone to be seen by the subtle effects of natural shadows. Using a different color to replicate the texture could have been done, but that approach was not as authentic. Hope that helps explain my choice of all beige. Other areas I should explain is the lack of or absence of the dark red or "Cherokee Red" window frames and the design behind the white grid topography. I will add that later... Best, Adam
