Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Sunday, July 25th, 2021
« on: July 25, 2021, 08:09:56 AM »
Good morning! I'm back home after a week long adventure with my whole family.  We loaded up the Michigan part of the family on an airplane and flew to California to meet the newest member of the family. I rented a 6 bedroom house Silicon Valley and we had a great time.  A hike through the Red Woods, a hike along the beach so the Grandkids could get their feet wet in the Pacific Ocean etc. etc.  It took last years travel budget and this years to make it happen, but it was worth it. We kept real busy.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! More yard work for me today. Here is another photograph that I took from the Whistler train, for my daily photograph contribution.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning.  It's time to get this place opened up.  It has been awhile since I added pictures to my daily checkin so I thought I would start doing that again. Here is a photograph I took from the Whistler train in British Columbia.  I hope everyone has a great day.

I just got back on my Brownsville Depot build and can't find detail card number 1.  Either I never got it or it fell behind the workbench or something.  I did get two complete sets of instructions with the kit.  George has never shorted me on any of the kits I have bought from him. :) ;)   Can someone take a picture of the card number 1 from their kit and either post it or email it to me. I have a question and it appears the answer is on on card 1.  Thank you in advance.

Good morning! We had 40 degree temperatures, yesterday. It melted a lot of snow, I had a serious river running down my driveway. I'm making the coffee and heading into the train room for the day. It sure beats working for a living.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Air Brush Painting with Acrylic Paints
« on: January 09, 2021, 02:19:10 PM »
So I'm in the middle of brush painting 87 window and door castings with acrylic craft paint and just started cleaning up the resin castings that also need to be painted with craft paint, for my build challenge.  My air brush collection has not been used since I made the switch from Floquil paints to acrylic paints a few years back. Well, I did try once unsuccessfully to paint with acrylics a few years back. I have decided that going to just rattle cans for my spray painting needs is not cutting it. So I thought I would tap the knowledge base of the forum.  A quick search of the internet was overwhelming and thought I would see if those of you that have experience with air brushing acrylic craft paints would share your knowledge.  I'm looking for your tips and techniques and any reference sources you think would be helpful, since you all know what I'm trying to paint. Thank you in advance for your help.

Kit Building / SRMW TUCKER & COOK MILL - 2021 Build Challenge
« on: January 01, 2021, 10:12:22 AM »

For the 2021 build challenge I have chosen the SRMW Tucker & Cook Cotton Mill.  I plan to build it as a Crew Quarter's for my Superior & Seattle Railroad. Let the fun begin - the box is coming down off the shelf.

Good morning.  It's time to do some modeling. I have the coffee brewed and I'm heading into the train room.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Mailbox color in the 1940's
« on: November 18, 2020, 03:46:10 PM »
I need some help finding a thread.  I remember reading a great discussion on mailbox colors in different time periods.  I actually copied the link but it seems to be gone.  I have a bunch of mailboxes that I want to be from the 1949 timeframe and need to choose a color.  I know that blue like they are now is wrong and if a remember correctly it was a shade of green that I was looking for. Does anyone remember the thread or have the information?

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / I need help with a supply problem
« on: October 16, 2020, 12:38:24 PM »
I just went through the supplies I need to buy for my next couple of builds.  I'm down to my last 1/4 bottle of Hunterline Driftwood Stain. ::)  Rick is still having problems getting alcohol up in Canada because of the COVID-19 crisis, so he is out of production right now.

Can anyone sell me a bottle or let me replace it when Rick gets back in production?  I thought maybe someone on the forum might have an extra bottle on the shelf that they would not get to for a few months. Please send me a PM if you can help.

Good morning! I had to get my phone out to figure out what day it was. Life in 2020. I'm heading out to buy supplies - I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! It looks like we have some members sleeping in this morning. I'm going to get some workbench time in and then take a drive for a change of scenery. I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning. After 2 days of planting trees it wasn't easy getting out of bed this morning. I have Grandpa duty today so I get to try those sore muscles out playing on the floor. ;)  It keeps me young right.  ::) I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! We are enjoying some beautiful summer weather here, finally.  I may move a workbench out to the gazebo today and enjoy the fresh air.  I hope everyone has a great day.
