Wow that's a lot of castings!  Good thing you have a method to your madness.  I like your wooden jigs to hold castings.  I noticed on your paint rack that you've colored the shelving with the associated color.  Nice way to quickly find the color you're looking for!

Thanks for stopping by the thread - yes the first time I use a paint I color the shelf so I know what it really looks like. You don't want to use the color chart that comes with the paints. Most of the acrylic paints on that shelf are being used to paint figures and castings. Occasionally I will use them for the base coat on a structure.  The fixtures I made to hold my casting sticks are working out real well in the paint booth for the primer coat.

Hi Frank


Thanks for stopping by the thread.  I know another modeler that likes to have multiple project going and stay busy. ;)  Wayne is planning on coming over this Saturday - we are making some changes in the track in the Eagles Nest yard.  Continuous improvement as they say. I just bought a glass layout table that will be installed in my office (work stuff is getting packed away) to expand the number of things I can be working on at one time.

My wife says this is play - not work - I'm okay with that - I'm retired. I sure like the sound of that.

Today, I spent most of the day getting more castings ready for the paint booth.  Here is a picture of what I have so far.  I have a number of window casting to get ready for the Locomotives works,  and a few more machine tools, then I will be in the casting painting mode for a long time.

I also learned today, that the grey primer that I've been buying for years is now much darker in color.  I'm not sure if this is just a particular batch that is darker or if the manufacture has switched the formula. I did a test with bringing the color back with light grey chalk and I think I can make it work. Consistent paint color seems to be a problem these days. Since, this grey primer is the base coat for the stone walls, I need to paint a casting with it and make sure that I can match the Roundhouse walls.

Hi John:
