Morning all,

Pressure washing the fence this morning and later this afternoon is full of Mother's Day stuff.

For those that still are fortunate to have your mothers, be sure you let them know how much you love them. Lost mine in 2004 and I can still hear her voice.

Have a great day ya'll.

Selling Kit... / FSM Hiram bros. Wholesale Meats- For Sale
« on: April 22, 2021, 05:52:12 PM »
Prior to listing this on Ebay, I'm offering it here at a lower price.

I purchased Hiram's at a local train show some 25+ years ago. The seller stated he bought the kit at a train show up north. What you see here is how it was when I bought it. I was told this was one of a kind. I've never seen one since! The seller stated he started the kit and never finished it.

John Siekirk and I both spoke to George Sellios about the kit and he stated he has never seen or heard about this kit and had no other information.

The kit had no instructions but all the parts are present. There is no back wall. You can see where George has his located against the upper track. I checked all my FSM photos and don't have one of Hiram's back wall.

The concrete deck is carved from a Bals block and stained. The brick wall is a Trains of Texas wall.

I'm asking $175.00 with free shipping to the Continental United States.

Morning all,

I took a chance yesterday and edged and cut the grass. It was supposed to rain and it never did. Rain is expected today as well so it probably won't.

I'm  going to try to get back on my build.

Have a great day ya'll.

Vehicle Modeling / Mountain States Model Works 1940 Ford Rebuild
« on: March 02, 2021, 07:05:40 PM »
While waiting for the paint to dry on Grumpy's Cafe build, I came across this little 1940 Ford. It was in a box of Jim Miller's misc. railroad items. Jim glued it together but never painted it.

I have six of these unbuilt so I know it is a Mountain States model. The vehicle is actually a 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe. The coupe was two doors and the sedan was four doors.

Since it was never painted, I'll paint it and use it on the A&S RR for Jim. Also, I'll need to "unglue" it and make it a kit once again.

The Judge is coming over, he got his vaccine.

Ya'll stay safe and  healthy.

Kit Building / KC's Workshop, Grumpy's Cafe - 2021 Build Challenge.
« on: January 01, 2021, 06:19:14 PM »
My choice for this year's challenge is a special kit by Kenny Crump of KC's Workshop. My build will be of Grumpy's Cafe.

It is Kenny's rendition of the Riff Raff Cafe on the F&SM. I believe Kenny still offers this kit upon request only. At least it is still on his site but I think they are SOLD OUT.

This is not a full kit, by design, as the kit comes with no instructions or casting like roof vents, etc. Footprint is approximately 3.5" X 5.5".

The photos of the kit were copied by me off Kenny's website. I added some brightness and contrast to the photos.
