Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Our Cat Salem:
« on: December 04, 2019, 07:22:01 PM »
Hey Guys:

I'm A little sad today as we had to put our 15 year old cat Salem to sleep last night. He was a great cat and we loved him. It's just been so hard to be without him.

Thanks for listening:

Scratchbuilding / Callahan's Auto Repair:
« on: November 26, 2019, 10:24:18 AM »
Hey Guys:

Here's a model I scratch built years ago. Mike Tylick, my friend Karl O. and myself built this structure.

When I saw the one Karl o. built I just had to build one for myself. He mad the Callahan's signs for me. As you can see it is a cut away model and has a complete 2 floor interior. I had A lot of fun building this. I thought you guys might enjoy seeing it.

Here's a few pictures.

P.S: Karl O made the signs.

Layout Tours / The North East And EVEREE RR
« on: November 16, 2019, 12:52:16 PM »
Hi All:

This is my friends Railroad that I build all the kits for. He probably has over 100 kits that I've built over the years. He gave me permission to post photos of his RR here on the forum. The layout is 33 feet X 54 feet.

Kit Building / FSM Emporium Seafood Co
« on: October 31, 2019, 04:15:52 PM »
Hi Guys:

Am starting Emporium Seafood Co today. We will be doing this A little differently this time. This will not be built as a diorama. It will be built as separate structures so it will be easier to install on my friends layout. I also don't want to do the water at this time. That way all the water can be done at the sdame time and will look the same.

Kit Building / Homemade Trees
« on: May 09, 2019, 03:07:19 PM »
Hi Guys:

Here's something thought you might be interested. This tree is mad from yarrow after it has bloomed and died off. Saw some around a parking lot and asked the owner if I could pick some. I think I may just plant a couple in the back yard. The top picture is how it came off the bush

Here's a few photos. The first one is of the the dead flower as I picked it. The second one is of it after sprayed with liquit adhesive and then sprinkled with Woodland Scenics #T1363 Light Green Coarse Turf.

Cheap way to make nice trees.

Hi All:

Will be building the Sierra West Logging camp. My friend just wants me to build the structures with out bases so he can install them on the layout easier. It would be a rather large diorama.

I think I will start with Main street.
