That floor is looking great!  So glad Amy navigated the hospital experience well.


Dave


Thanks for stopping by the thread and the kind words. Amy is feeling a lot better - thanks.

Very nice and grimy John. What giddy you use to get that look?

Thanks Curt - The wood started out with a coat of earth paint, the cement with med. grey paint, and the brick as per above posts.  I then went to work on it with a few different gray pan pastels applied with a brush cut like chalks. It needs more work but we are started down the path I'm looking for.  I need to get the details in before I do the final weathering steps. I also want to get the wall and the wood flooring on the other side to this level and then work on all of it at the same time.  Next step, is the crane, which will setup all the dimensions.

Thank you my friend.  I sure have a lot of details to add to this build. I hope it all looks good when I'm done.

I made progress on three fronts with the Locomotive Works build today.  First, more windows. My next build is going to have less windows ;) .

You can also see pieces of the overhead crane going together while I'm working on the windows in the picture above.

I continued with the roof sheds.  A few more braces and I will be painting these and mounting them to the roof card.

And finally for tonight, the tracks were installed above the inspection pits. The second stall will have a track that extends out to the outside loading docks. A very useful feature for the big repairs and part shipments.

I made some more progress on the Locomotive Works, today.  More windows - I now have all 112 windows assembled and painted.  Tomorrow I plan on adding the glass to the final batch (about a third of them) and this task will be complete.  It took forever on this build.  I need to find a faster way to prep., paint, and put glass in windows.

The roof card made it's way into the paint booth today. I painted it flat black, the camo black. It will be covered with the same black roofing material I used on the Roundhouse but I wanted a nice flat black color underneath just in case.

I took this picture before the paint was dry - it turns flat black as it dries.
