Hey guys.  I received an e-mail from a fellow modeler asking if I could scan Card A from FOS Rohlen Welding and send it to him (it was missing from his kit).  As luck would have it that's one of FOS kits I don't have in my stash so I can't help him out.  I'm hoping someone here would be kind enough to lend a hand.  If you have it and can scan it you can attach it here or e-mail it to me and I'll forward it.  Thanks!

Morning all,

Just another day at the virtual office for us working stiffs.  Got a little workbench time in last night.  Not much though.  I need two more airbrush sessions before I can really start to make some headway on my current build.

Have a great one!

Kit Building / JL Innovative Design Kit #311 McLEOD SUPER SERVICE
« on: July 10, 2020, 07:43:39 AM »
Here's the next kit I'm building.  This one is for PaulS.   :)  My plan, at the moment, is for it represent a relatively well maintained structure.  Just a little dirty and weathered so it doesn't look like it's just been built and painted.  Paul also included some new signs so the business will be named "Rivers Super Service".  I'll be keeping the Red and White paint scheme as shown on the box.

This is my first foray into building a kit from JL Innovative Design.  I have one of there's somewhere in my stash, an Ice Cream Parlor I think, but I've never built one.  Let's see what's in the box.  First there are some nicely package walls, castings and a bundle of strip wood.

Lot's of signs.  Some of these are the signs Paul slipped into the box.  But nice signs.

More signs and rolled roofing material.

The inside of the instructions shows the structure from all sides and identifies the components.

The front page of the instructions.

And the back page.

More in a moment... ;)

Morning all!

T.G.I.F!   :D  Why do people schedule meetings for late Friday afternoons?   >:(

Looking forward to doing something at the workbench this weekend.

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Everybody's working for the weekend.  Anybody here familiar with that song?  Well, not everybody on this forum but a few of us are.   ;D 

Nothing to report here.  I'm excited to hear that Slim and Lisa are taking over Jimmy's business.  Now I'm going to have to buy more stuff I don't need to support people I like.  ;D

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Middle of the week for us Monday thru Friday working stiffs.  I think I see a weekend coming up on the horizon.  ;)

No workbench progress the last couple of days.   :(  Hope to remedy that this weekend.

Have a great one!

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Last day of June - 6/30/2020
« on: June 30, 2020, 06:32:52 AM »
Morning all,

It's the end of the month already?  Another day at the old dining room table.  Tomorrow is a rare middle of the week day off.  The company decided we all need a break and threw in a bonus day off this year.  Friday we'll be off for Independence Day as well.

I'm ready to move on to the lighting phase of Wachter's Apartments.  Once that's finished I can clean off the workbench and move on to the next build that's been patiently waiting in the queue.   ;)

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Just another thrilling day a the dining room table.   ;)  Nothing to report on the work bench front.  It's been ignored since Sunday.  :(

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Day two of all day planning sessions (meetings).  Day one was no fun.  I don't expect day two to be any better.   :P  Thankfully these are all virtual so I can kick back, put up my feet, make faces, roll my eyes, grumble, cuss, etc. while they're going on.  Just have to remember to mute my microphone and keep my camera off.   ;)

Have a great one!

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Friday - May 22, 2020 - Long weekend!
« on: May 22, 2020, 06:28:16 AM »
Morning all,

Long weekend here as we observe the Memorial Day holiday on Monday.  I'm ready for the long weekend too.  Been a busy week at work and I'm plum worn out.  I may have to get an early start on the weekend if some fool doesn't schedule a late day meeting today.  ;D

No workbench progress to report.  I hope to remedy that over the next three days.  :)

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Back to work after a day off.  Most of which was spent at the workbench.   ;)  Walls are together and Wachter's is taking shape.  Next up, I believe, is the roof.  Lot's of signs and details to add too. 

Have a great one!

Morning all,

T.G.I.F!  Looking forward to the weekend.

I'm getting the hang of this working from home thing.  Over my lunch hour yesterday I slipped out to the garage, fired up the airbrush, painted some stuff, cleaned everything up and got back to work with a couple minutes to spare.   ;)  Even got a little workbench time in after work. 

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Well yesterday was certainly unpleasant.  12+ hours at the computer working.  There was a critical situation that I got sucked into in the middle of the day and it drug on for hours on end.  I'm pretty certain it's still not resolved and will likely flare up today again.   >:(  No workbench time for me yesterday.  >:(  >:(

Have a great one!

Kit Building / FOS The Wacther Apartments
« on: May 05, 2020, 09:12:46 AM »
Time to start a new build!  This time around I'm going to build FOS The Wacther Apartments which was a kit my better half gave me for Christmas.  Let's get started.

The unopened kit on the workbench.  ;)

Tearing off the shrink wrap. kit smell.  ;)

The back of the sheet that's on the front of the box includes a lot of neat signs.  Nice touch!

Let's see what's inside the box.

A bundle of strip wood, a couple bags of smaller parts.  Doors, windows, etc.

Several sheets of laser cut parts.

More in a moment... ;)

Morning all,

T.G.I.F! (For those of us who still care.  ;) )

I received an e-mail yesterday that indicated the earliest my employer will make a decision as to how/when we return to the office will mid July.  Then it will be done in phases with, most likely, volunteers in the first phase.  Looks like I'll be working from home thru a good part of the summer.

I got a little workbench time in last night.  Slowing making progress on a mid-sized build.  :D

Have a great one!
