Morning everyone


Weather in South Jersey P. sunny/77.  Later 87 but those storms will be coming through again!


Jaime if anyone was going to buy it I think a good person to buy it would be Doug (FOS). Just for all the castings alone.  There is not to many kit builders left out there anymore.


Everyone have a great day!!  :)

Marty:  Hope your comment is tongue-in-cheek.  My truck bed is but 6'2" so not unusual for me to open the back window to accommodate 8' and 10' lengths.

The Explorer normally fits a 10 foot board when it is the only one, however I had three and the third one crashed into the front window and produced the most beautiful star burst crack. The wife is getting it fixed now and has been challenging considering the lockdown.

Kit Building / Re: First Craftsman Kit Build - J. Keen Supplies

Hey Der Folks!


I added the 2 foundations, and "mocked-up" the loading dock. There were a few blunders, but a great learning experience. I did notice I am missing the side vent castings, I emailed Jimmy, and he said he will be sending them out.  Next up, add the dock doors, add the overhang, and tidy-up some of the weathering and details like permanently attaching the loading dock, and side building. Only negative so far is, the kit instructions (both sets) on the website are incomplete, but luckily I have the DVD.

John,
As always, thanks again for posting these. Sometimes I come to these pages for inspiration when I am feeling "stale." Sometimes I just come here to look and sigh and reflect on how incredibly beautiful this all is.

You are welcome, I'm so thankful that Jimmy provides us with a place where we can come back to them, again, and again, for inspiration.  And we don't have to wade through a bunch of adds! George Sellios thank you for the inspiration!

Yesterday I got serious about a coaling station for my HOn30 line.  This was inspired by PostalKarl's recent build of the FSM 115 Coal and Sand shed.  I started with the Durango Press kit for the jib crane Coal Loader (DP #41).  I took the kit plans, scanned them, and eventually scaled them to 70%.  This gives a structure that is easily tall enough to coal those little lokeys, but looks proportionally correct.  I'll build a shed similar to the FSM kit around that, and there are some interesting design and assembly questions to consider in the process. 

Today's primary objective on that project is to stain the wood I'll need to construct the frame.  I'll probably also cut and stain the siding, because I think I'll need to assemble each wall separately with the siding holding the framing together, and then glue the walls to the front frame/jib crane. 

Here's a build thread:  http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=52993
