Thank you for the complements and I'm looking forward to getting the glue bottles out, too. I need to finish the painting and weathering process on the walls and then get the window castings in the windows. I'm hoping to get some wall glued together this week.

Update:  The first batch of widow castings for the Brick Roundhouse has made it's way through the paint booth.  Now for some window glass and installation.

Update:  Wayne Olson has been working on a few projects for the layout while we have been in our stay at home mode.  He is bringing over a boat that he just finished and picking up some supplies for making trees and another boat kit.  I will take some pictures of his latest boat models and post them later today. It sure will be nice when this hobby can get back to being fun with friends.

Here are a few pictures of the boats that Wayne Olson has built for the future water front scene on the S&S  Railroad.















He will be dropping off one more today. And has kits for two more in his survival kit. The waterfront scene is a large area that will have many boats.  Wayne took the detailing as far as he could go until we have them in place on the layout.

Those boats look excellent, John. Are those Seaport Model Works kits? Really gorgeous.

Thank you, yes Wayne did a great job on them. I believe all three of them are Seaport.  Wayne brought over another one today and I will share a few pictures of it tomorrow. My long range plan for the layout has two areas where I will have waterfront scenes so I have room for a number of boats.  I have been picking up kits at shows for years.  Wayne really like to build boat models so he plans on building a few more.
