Good morning from Northern Michigan.  Raining here again. We had frozen rain last night. I think summer might be over. I have been on the internet looking for some detail castings for my Locomotive Works. I'm looking for shelving for along the wall - so far the only thing I found was at Rusty Stumps. I want lots of tools, oil cans, and machine shop related stuff on them. Does anyone have a lead for me? I know Brett Gallant has them in a couple of his kits but I will need them when I build the kits. I may have to scratch build them.  I hope everyone has a great day.
How about http://scale-structures.com/ss7204

Still chilly in SE NH.  Wife just came downstairs, so brunch today is "Egg McNuffins" - fried egg, provolone, Canadian bacon, but no muffin.  I did some work on a small model last night, I'm shocked how much I've forgotten about 'workflow' and the little tricks that go into good modeling.

How did you apply the inks, with a paintbrush?

Is this standard gauge?  Are you going to "broaden" the coach?

Dave does the hanging air filtration unit from Grizzly help reduce the dust. I've been fighting dust for years.

Well, I haven't run it in the new location.  But when they were doing the wood floors in the house, I set this unit down in one corner of a room and let it run.  It did seem to help significantly in keeping the fine dust down.

I spent time yesterday working on the 'big tools', setting things up in the unfinished side of the basement for when I start the benchwork construction.

Yippee!  I found my modeling glasses while cleaning up in the unfinished part of the basement.  I tried doing a bit of modeling on a small kit I found while unpacking, and I really missed those glasses. 


My full-size drill press, new mitre saw stand and small band saw are all set up in the unfinished space, just outside of the train workshop room.  I still have lots of unpacking to do, but I'm making real progress.

Is Jaime at Altoona?  If not, the rest of you will have to make up for it with photos of the contest room, etc.


Have fun!

How about a poured concrete base with a curb around the tank ?

Jim
That's an excellent idea!  Could use air-hardening clay for the "concrete".

The 2017 Expo / Re: Early Arrivals Dinner?
« on: October 31, 2017, 07:19:58 PM »
I know I mentioned Primanti's as far as a possible dinner venue. They're sports-themed, TV's on the wall, tables that can get pushed together and you don't have to worry about being too loud. Just throwing it out there. I have no preference. Some folks like to stick with national chains, others go for local color.


Not 100% sure what Lisa and I are doing regarding dinner yet. Depends on what I can get done in the next few hours.

And no Stillers game this weekend, so the crowd won't be as large and there'll be flexibility for what games get shown on TV.

We had quite a wind and rainstorm last night, losing power about 1:30 AM.  It came back on at 11:30.  Now I need to build up a head of steam to head back into the basement and unpack more stuff.

Hello All,
cloudy, rainy today in Quebec city.
I need you opinion about this product :
https://northeasternscalelumber.com/shop/shingles/hoshg1b1.html
Is somebody have try it.
In fact I search a paper shingle product that look like the shingle used in several South River model kit or in some Foscale kit.

Thanks in advance for your opinion or suggestion.

Have a great one.
Eric Quebec city
I've used these, and they look pretty good with a bit of weathering.  But I wish they would sell them unassembled.  I was able to buy sheets of unassembled sheets (8 1/2 x 11 laser cut shingle), which I used to make long roofs on mill buildings.

I got the Nov RMC issue yesterday.  (Loved the spread on Don Ball's layout.  Don is probably the dean of 19th century modelers.)
