The brick wall castings have been painted and the chalk has been applied for the mortar lines on the SRMW O. V. Hooker & son build.

The plan for tomorrow is to finish up with the subassemblies on the F&SM Tribute build and move it to the my assembly workbench.  I will then add the windows to the brick wall castings for O. V. Hookers and start the assembly process on my layout workbench. I'm also working on the finish detailing of the Sayles Mill - I will take some progress photographs when I get a little farther along.

Thank you for stopping by, Bob.  I have spent the last couple days painting detail castings. I'm about half way through the big batch that I had primed.

Thank you for following along. I'm in the middle of a week long push to do the detail painting on all of those castings I primed a few weeks back. As soon as I get the detailing workbench cleared I will be moving forward with my builds.

Update: Lots of build activity on the S&S RR this week.  Wayne Olson joined me, yesterday, for a work session. I will take another round of progress photographs this evening. I'm hoping to get the window castings into the brick walls for the Hooker's build and get the assembly process started, today.

Update:  I continue to work on painting the detail castings that I primed a few weeks ago. I'm also working on the brick walls for the Hooker's build. The F&SM Tribute 1 build is at the point where all of the subassemblies have been put together and I have to make decisions about location for the buildings and color for each. I should be to the point where some progress pictures are warranted in the next few days. The casting painting is taking a lot longer than I expected. That is a lot of castings.
