Hey John:

What can I say but what a beautiful job.

Thank you, I'm working on the final workbench detailing today and hope to get the structure mounted to the base board.

Today, I finished all the detailing that I'm going to do on the workbench so I took a few pictures before I moved the structures to my workbench with the baseboard.

The next step was to glue the structures to the baseboard.

I made sure the walls were right where I wanted them while the glue dried.

A few pictures after the glue dried.  I will be adding a few ladders and detail castings now that the structures are mounted on the baseboard.  I will also be taking one more shot at coloring with the chalks. The final round of coloring will be done on the layout with the surrounding buildings in place.
