I have a couple hundred barrels prepped and will be trying out the new earth colored primer we talked about. The new air brushes will be getting a workout in the next few weeks.

Tonight, I have a couple progress pictures from my Bonney Wrench sign build.














Tomorrow, I hope to finish the interior detail, paint the remaining doors, and add the roof to this build. I also need to hit this with some A&I to tone down that white a little bit.

Thank you for the kind words. I will be doing some touchup on the paint this morning.  Pictures show things that you don't see at the workbench.

Wow, John. The prep for your castings is inspiring. Do you drill some of them to make those cocktail sticks work?

I drill them if I can do it in a place that will not show. I find this to be the best way to handle them in the paint booth and for the detail painting the comes afterword.

I have been working on the scenery down the mountain side from the Beach Farms diorama and thought I would post a progress photograph. I'm about half way in stitching this one in to the layout. I have also been adding more details to the diorama, itself. I will post a series of photographs of this area when it's complete.

WOW, John. I swear if I hadn't known from the beginning that this is a model scene I's swear it was real. Nice work.
