That G. Wilikers building and scenery around look great John.

I'll also be following on the station build.

The Beach Farms diorama is looking better every day - I keep adding more detail and fixing the stuff I didn't like. I will take another batch of pictures when I get the scenery in the foreground complete and the detail changes to the point that I decide it's done. If there is such a thing in model railroading. Thank you for following along and the kind words.

Today, G. Wilikers left my workbench and was placed on the layout.  Here are the final workbench pictures.  I have some detailing left to do but it will be done on the layout.  One of the details - I plan on adding the power poles to all of the builds in the Eagles Nest Yard at the same time. Also, the track and road will be add to all of the structures at the same time.

The truck in these pictures is one of Dan's builds (aka Raymo). He sure does a wonderful job. Thank you Dan it really makes the scene.

Thank you for the kind words and for following along.  This is also one of my favorite FSM kits. When I think about it I have a lot of favorite FSM kits. ;)
