Hi all,
         I see it's been a while since others have shared their version of "what's in a name" or their chosen avatar.  Thought I'd see what other cool reasons we chose who we are and why.
                                Thanx Thom...

Thank you Dave and Karl for your input, I think that I will paint the rails. I'll let you know how it turns out.    Jeff

B-L-H didn't last very long.  Wal-Mart occupies a portion of the property.  The distinctive shaped office building remains in that function, space leased to tenants.  Decades ago, Boeing built a wind tunnel on a parcel adjoining Industrial Highway (HUEY and V-Stol testing).

Back in the day, Baldwin, General Steel Castings, Belmont Iron, Westinghouse, Sun Ship, and a Phila Electric generating station fronted on aptly named Industrial Highway running from Chester to the Philadelphia airport.  Reading had their Darby Creek facility and roundhouse along with a rolling bridge.  Quite a lot of railfanning was done going back and forth to grandmom's.

I found a package of old Precision Lasercraft self-stick light grey wood shingles.  After a bit of drybrushing, they're good to go. 

Then I constructed the gable ends ('shiplap' for the front and clapboard for the back), including nibbling out the slot for the roof panel's bracing, and glued them into place.

Finally, I glued one of the roof panels.  I'll let that dry thoroughly and then attach the other.

Great modeling John.


Thank you for the encouraging words. I'm really having fun with these projects.

Love that post and beam construction!  (Reminds me of my 1:1 barn.)


Great to hear that we are matching a prototype.  Thank you for following along.
Great modeling John.

Great build Karl.
Beautiful job Bob. You are one of the masters when it comes to lighting.
