Morning all,

Happy Anniversary to Jim & Deb!  :)

I hit the ground running with work stuff this morning as soon as I fired up the old PC.  Just getting to check in now during a training class.  Nothing happening on the workbench front.

Have a great one!

Morning all,

I second that motion Opa George!  A margarita machine would greatly improve things at work.  If not, at least it would make things more interesting.   ;D

Nothing accomplished on the workbench front yesterday.   :(

Have a great one!

I think I'm going to have to order some of that to give it a try.  Thanks for the heads up and the link!   :D

Morning all,

I snuck a little airbrush session in over my lunch hour yesterday to prime some parts (including the two replacement windows for my Marshall's Boat and Gas build).  One of the benefits of working from home.  ;)

Have a great one!

In that last picture the retaining wall colors really look spot on.  Well done!   ;)

Morning all,

Still waffling on whether or not we'll make the trip up to PA next month to visit family.  As of yesterday morning it was definitely off.  As of yesterday evening it was maybe back on again.  ::)  I guess I'll know for sure when my vacation starts on June 10th.  ;D

I got some workbench time in yesterday and I sure needed it after last weeks marathon meeting week.  This week is a return to the normal meeting schedule.  We won't do that marathon thing for another 12 weeks (too soon).

Have a great one!

Looking great Bob!  Always enjoy your builds, full of pictures and techniques.

Thanks Mark!  Glad to have you following along and really appreciate your taking the time to post.   ;D

Real looking great. Another fine build.

Thanks John!  Appreciate you're taking the time to check in with all that you have going on these days.   :D

Coming on really nicely, Bob.

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks Mark!  I'm enjoying this one so far.  It's a simple little kit but I love these little waterfront type structures.   :D

Really enjoying this build, Bob.  Nice little kit that I may have to pick up one day.
I also like the corrugated roofing material in these kits. I think it's easier to work with than the actual metal.

Looking good so far!

--Opa George

Thanks Opa George!  I wasn't sold on this type of corrugated roofing material the first few times I used it but I've since come around to liking it.  it's the old stuff that got me into the habit of cutting it to size prior to painting rather than the other way around.  There was little point in painting that first and then cutting it because you'd end up with too many shiny edges that needed to be touched up after you cut it.   :D

Hello Bob, another great start to a very informative build thread. I always learn some additional tips and techniques from you. I really hope that someday you can get started on a layout for all of the terrific builds that you produce.   Jeff

Thanks Jeff!  My plan is to start with a 2' by 4' module and completely finish that first.  I do need to clean out the garage and redo the shelving on one wall first.  When I finally retire in a few years I won't have work to use and excuse for procrastinating on getting started.   ::)

Happy to share the tips and techniques that I use here.  Heck, I learned a lot of them here and on the old forum.  It's what we do here.   ;)

 Looking good !
How do you take these photos when your hands are never free ?

Thanks Tommy!  I have an old Sony camera that still has some buttons on the back.  I can reach over it and, by feel, press the bottom button which turns on the delay timer.  When this camera gives up the ghost I'm not sure what I'll do.  All the newer cameras I've seen are all touch screen controls so the by feel thing won't work.  I'm not sure if you set the delay timer to be on permanently or if you have to do it manually each time.  I guess I'll worry about that if/when the time comes.   ;)

Really looks good Bob


Thanks Doug!  Another neat little kit for FOS.  I really enjoy building the smaller ones like this.  :)
