Baggage Car - Daily Chat / HobbyZone modules
« on: January 22, 2020, 05:27:59 PM »
As most of you know, I'm a really slow builder.  I'll stop work on something for days/weeks.  I then have to spend time finding all the parts, etc.  I'm also not so great at keeping track of tools, etc.  Some of the tools were in mugs, some in drawers.  I never seemed to have what I needed at the time.  Also I had a paint stand which effectively split my modeling area.

Morning, all.

The snowstorm missed us (I'm not complaining).  Didn't do much yesterday but relax.  Maybe some benchtime today.

Morning, all.

The Murphy bed is half put together.  Hopefully the rest to be done today.  Trip to grocery store and Patriots football also in the cards for today.

Morning, all.


Wake up you sleepyheads!  Here nothing planned except a trip to the grocery store later.  Maybe some football.  Maybe some layout room cleaning.

Morning, all.


Up on time, though I stayed up late to watch the Patriots victory.   :)  Downspout work/mowing on tap today if it doesn't rain.

Kit Building / FSM Westside Auto
« on: September 07, 2019, 05:29:39 PM »
Felt like building an FSM kit while I continue adding landforms/sidings to The Empire.  Splitting my time will make this build even slower than my normal ones.  ::) Here's the kit with a picture from the kit, we'll see how close I come to this.

Kit Building / Minuteman Scale Models EZ kit shed
« on: August 29, 2019, 02:13:14 PM »
I hadn't built any structures for over 8 months, and thought I have a hankerin' to build an FSM kit, I wanted something fast and simple as a warm up.  This kit from Minuteman fit the bill.  Precut walls/roof/base and even precut window glass and rolled roofing!

Morning, all.


Off today, hurray!  I need to mow and would like to take apart the old grill and have a run to the dump to get rid of it as well as clean out all the stuff in the garage  that the city sanitation workers don't take.  Unfortunately, it's supposed to rain on and off today.   >:(

Morning, all.


May is over already.  Where does the time go.  Speaking of which, here's pics of my newest loco and start of scenery for The Empire.  The 05A Northerns were used on fast freights, so I needed some reefers.  The Accurail CB&Q ones were a special run for the CB&Q historical society.  They've been sitting waiting to be put together for 26 years on the shelf!   :o

Morning, all

Happy Mother's Day.  Need to mow today if it doesn't rain.  This will be my fourth mowing.  For the first it was over 80 degrees, each has been cooler, and today the high is supposed to be 54.   >:( Might do some ballasting today as well.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Bridge tie question
« on: April 02, 2019, 06:09:00 PM »
I'm installing this bridge on The Empire.  The issue is the cross beams are higher than the lengthwise beams, so the ties either need to be removed at each cross beam, or I'll need to shim the lengthwise beams make the ties even across the bridge.  I've seen prototype pictures that show the removed ties, but I think it looks weird.  I'll also need to glue strips of styrene under the rails at the "blank tie" to make sure there's no short thru the bridge.  Opinions?

Morning, all.

Again I'm opening?  You eastern folks need to get up earlier, time's a wastin'.  I'm repairing track today, and deciding how to add a bridge.  Happy Hump Day!

Kit Building / Seven down zero to go
« on: March 26, 2019, 05:02:54 PM »
I have finally finished the structures for the "Red Light District" by FOS.  They need roof details, but that can wait until they're ready to be installed on the layout.  Thanks again to Bob B. for his excellent thread when he built them, it was extremely helpful.  The "Mitchell's Bar" has no designated place on the layout, so will become a "shelf orphan" for now.

Morning, all.


Where is everyone.  Get up you sleepyheads!  Today I need to take out the "bridge" by the water heater, as the plumber is coming sometime today.
