FOS Moscone Bail Bonds - 2021 Build Challenge
« on: January 02, 2021, 12:08:07 PM »
Here's my choice for the 2021 Build Challenge - the FOS Moscone Bail Bonds.  I'm not sure where this one will end up when it's done.  Could be on a shelf in my garage or it could end up on a layout somewhere else.  ;)

For today it'll be just the obligatory box and contents shots.  When I'm done here I need to the hit the workbench and start gluing stuff together.   ;D

The box.


The instructions are on top.  I've perused them a couple of times already to get a feel for what's coming my way.


Some individual bag of components, castings, Durham's Water Putty (there are stucco walls) and strip wood that used to be held together by a rubber band that has dried out and fell apart.


The main walls and some acetate for the windows.


And finally a few templates.


I'm kind of happy to have my feet back on land and in familiar territory after the Sea Port Build.  That one was fun but, as always, it's exciting to move on to something new.   ;D

Thanks for following along!

Bob,

I have room for this one on the Atlantic and Southern RR. I'll give you my unbuilt kit and this way Moscone won't be lonely on the garage shelf.  ;D

Oh, and I'll throw in unlimited Saturday lunches as well.

Just saying. I'm not greedy, well maybe just a little.  8)

Will enjoy this one. I, for one, live a structure with stucco. Great design from Doug

Great choice! I've thought of building mine with asphalt shingles instead of stucco on the lower part.

Thanks for following along Craig.  I've grown to like stucco structures myself as well.  What appealed to me about this one was the combination of stucco and clapboard along with some other visual elements like the fire escape, sign and stairway.  Lots to look at.  ;)

That's a great idea Dan!  I've seen lots of structure in the Northeast that had shingles for siding.

Thanks Greg!  Yes, those miscreants will need to get bailed out of jail from time to time won't they?   :o
