Ohhh.....I have a feeling we're going to be running trains on the third level before too long.  Question - will safety helmets with face shields be required when Greg is running a train on the third level?   :P

Morning all,

I spent a good part of yesterday at the workbench and it felt good.   :D  I primed parts for my challenge build plus another small background flat kit I'm going to build in tandem with the challenge build, stained all the strip wood for both kits and started bracing walls.  I need to get on with the challenge build so I can start that FSM kit for John.   :D  After that's another FSM kit for the other John.  ;)



Have a great one!

Beautiful work Bob..... 8)


Thanks Greg!  You too will get to see this one in person one of these days.   :D


Looking forward to it Bob.....the A&S is really looking great, but the way you have been adding lighting to your builds and now Tom's efforts with lighting is going to send it over the top.  8)

The A&S is looking wonderful and the lighting certainly adds another aspect to it.  Not that long ago I wouldn't have considered adding lighting to structures but now I'm hooked.   8)

Nicely done, Bob. Great thread as always.

Thank you very kindly Dave!  Always a pleasure to share with this great group of modelers.    :)

That sure turned out nicely, Bob.  I'll use your thread for reference if I ever get around to building my WKLO kit.   :D


Jeff

Thanks Dr. Jeff!  I'll probably have to use my own thread as a reference when I build the one I have in my stash (someday).   :D

Hi Bob:

Coming along quite nicely. Great job with the signs and the color scheme.

Karl


Thanks Karl!  The next step will be for Tom to plant it on his layout and scenic around it.  I'm not sure when that'll happen but I'm looking forward to seeing it in place.

Morning all,

Day off today and I'm about to settle down at the workbench.   :D  I'll have to take a short break to run up to the dealer and pick up my car when they're finished with.  Nothing wrong, just a courtesy check up 90 days after the purchase.

We've been talking about getting a new mattress.  Then again, we've been talking about getting a new mattress for years now so I doubt today will be the day.   :P



Have a great one!

May not use it...Iíll move on to other stuff and noodle on it awhile.


I like the sign Dave but I'm sure if you come up with something else I'll like that as well.  I've already added this kit to my 'wish list' thanks to your thread.  Super job!  It looks wonderful.   ;D

Bob,

Wowser, this is one fantastic build thread. The overall look is even better than the kit photo.

The LED lighting really brings it to life. Also, I'll owe you lunch forever and many LEDs.

Tom ;D


As always it was a pleasure building this one for you my friend.  I'm looking forward to seeing it in place on the A&S someday.  You're scenery always makes the finished builds look so much better then they do on the workbench.   :D [size=78%]  [/size]

Bob,
Love how the model turned out.  Just the right amount of weathering! The lighting makes the model

Mike Sigmon


Thanks Mike.  Much appreciated.  I'm happy with how it turned out.  The weathering was just a tad heavier than I originally intended but ended up not being too overdone.

Wonderful work. The lighting really highlights a great model.


Thanks John!  The lighting is all Slim's fault.  I never would have considered it without his influence.   ;)

Beautiful job Bob. Top notch as always.


Thanks Curt!  Much appreciated.  You'll get to see this one in person one of these days.   ;)   I have another one in my closet to build for myself someday.   :D

Tremendous effort, Bob. Looks great. The light effects add a lot. I need to give that more thought as I do things in the future.

Thanks for sharing.

Vince


Thanks Vince!  The lighting adds some extra time to the build but I really like the end results.  I've seen kits I've added lighting to in place on a layout, surrounded by scenery, and the effect looks even better than it does on my kitchen counter. 


There was a time when I wouldn't have even considered adding lights to a structure.   ;D
