Happy Sunday,

Got my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine yesterday.  No ill effects--this morning my arm is only very slightly sore--no problem with movement.  I must give credit to an incredible operation. This was at a church community center and they had nearly 1400 people scheduled to move through.  Lots of volunteers made it go very smoothly and surprisingly quick considering the hundreds of people there.

A quick trip to the grocery after a breakfast of French toast this morning, then hopefully time at the workbench and layout. I primed my Rusty Rails tuna boat casting yesterday.  Should have time to paint it today.

Cheers!

Morning all.

Gearing up for a trip to Arizona tomorrow. Time to get out of the house.

I’ll get some last minute bench-time in today, but I’ll be downing tools for a week, so I’ll be going dark for a little while.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Good morning.


Dan, great job on the GMC Crackerbox.  My cousin had the sleeper version with a snarly Detroit diesel.  He logged a lot of miles hauling steel with it until he upgraded to  an International Emeryville cabover with Cummins power.  You provided me with a short trip down memory lane and I thank you.


Looks like I need to make a trip to the hardware store as my caulking cartridge of liquid nails has dried up. 


Everyone have a great day!

Jerry

Great looking truck Dan!

Have a great one!

A great day for anything , sun is shining but it's not too warm. Went for a ride on the bicycle , cleaned my workshop , and glued down cork on the staging yard , now I have to wait till it's dry , which takes forever because cork is almost waterproof and air can't get to the glue well.
I love photo's, don't we all.

Thanks! The Emeryville is on my list to be built.

I knocked out these hoppers, they're flat-cast resin kits I got from eBay.  They are the same prototype as the old Red Ball cast metal and wood kits.  I carved off the cast-on grabs, and used 18" drop on the sills and 24" straight on the ends.  I also carved off some posts on either side of the coupler.  The couplers are Kadee 158 short whiskers, and the trucks are old IHC delrin 4'8" wheelbase with Intermountain wheelsets.  I need to add some weight and a coal load.
