John, 3400 pounds of plaster, that is more than it takes to plaster all my house walls. You will need na air-hammer to take it down in the future. LOL

I don't plan on that being my job! ;)

Great work John.  Each scene draws you in with all of the details you've added.

So, on my last update I mentioned that I was going to move my Mackenzie build to my detailing bench now that Isaac's Coal has been moved to the layout.  I took this opportunity to clean up my workbenches.  It's all areas that you have seen before during by build pictures but I thought since I had them clean I would post pictures of my work areas before a build.





This is my detailing work station. Three work surfaces, two with glass plates to work on.  I added brown paper to cover up all the paint stains this time around.  After a while the all the paint and stains on the workbench surface were starting to look like camouflage when I was trying to find all those detail parts.  Starting with a constant color really helps.

In my shop area I also have three working surfaces / workbenches for the bigger layout jobs.

Okay, so now that you have seen the workbenches clean (it will be awhile before this will happen again) it's time to go mess them up again. Mackenzie's to the detailing area and the S&S RR Locomotive Works in the shop area.  I wonder how long it will take me to find all the tools I put away while I was cleaning?

I don't be able to clean up my workbench like you. The mess on it, is only varying  between lightly mess to apocaliptically out of control :)

Helpful and timely!  Since I can see the end of the basement construction, I need to start planning the work area (as well as the layout track plan.)

I would have described mine as apocalyptically out of control before I took the two hours this morning to clean all 6 work surfaces. I had to remove everything from the benches to put down the brown paper.  It is the best thing I have done for my modeling in a long time. My work surfaces were covered with paint dots from years of projects and were working like camouflage to hide the little detail parts.  It was the perfect time to do it between major projects. I can tell you from working on the benches the rest of the day it will be they way I start any project from now on.  A roll of the brown construction paper is very cheap and I have been using the same roll for a couple years.
