Very nice modeling John, I especially like the building with no roof.

John, I don't understand why you are only working on four things at once?
To me, the amazing thing is you are doing all four extremely well.
Each one having it's own signature.
Thank you for sharing your incredible work.

Vince, Congratulations on the promotion and the build. Excellent work for your first effort. Excellent if it was your hundredth.
I built my first kit in 1969, it was FSM #25 Branchline Water Tower. Cost 4.95. Built it took it back to the hobby shop in Reading, Pa. where I bought it, and gave to the owner, said. I want to buy an other one.
If someone wants this one they can have it. He was nice in saying, why, this one is okay. I used shoe polish at full strength. It was not bad, certainly not good.
Second one much better.

I like the Annie Sloan chalk paints. Old White and Paris Grey (I also love Paris) are two favorites. One of my customers sells them.
So it is a nice way to reciprocate.

I just received a new O scale kit from Jeff. The  John Shea Building.
I feel I can not support a better person and kit designer.
Like in all walks of life, you have true gentleman, and you have true ********.
And we have witnessed both. Jeff is a true gentleman. John (Toms River) told me the other day that Jeff's wife is a special lady.
The kits are also beautiful, would you expect less.
Thank you Jeff.

Bob, I echo what Dave said. It is never easy. My thoughts are with you.

John, I so admire your modeling. Thank you for being so kind to share.

They are very challenging scratch build kits. Results are well worth it.

Roger, Thank you for taking the time to respond. In looking at all pictures, I wish to report, only a few look metallic.
Conclusion the walls look GREAT. I may have to inquire on how to adjust my monitor. I know indoor, outdoor, this lighting, that lighting all make a difference.
It was nice that no one told me to keep my mouth shut.
Roger I will continue to follow.
With respect

I hope everyone had a great time at the show.
Bob, I know how you feel, sometimes I feel like I work 8 days with my business.

Eric, Your skills are remarkable. Great textures. The sequence of buildings looks very natural.
Vince, Most people scratch build not to save money. In the end it usually takes much more time. So if time is money to you, scratch building is more costly.
