This is still HO, right? I didn't miss something where you launched into G scale? I have one criticism. Your attention to detail is phenomenal and your ability to render "true-life" to miniatures is second-to-none, so why on earth not remove the flash from the jack casting? I'm assuming it is to show us that it is indeed a model...how else would we know?
Cheers,
Dave

Yes, this is actually HO scale, and thanks for letting me know that I could not see a huge line amongst all that small detail. I need to get my eyes checked. but, at least on the dio, it will be facing the other way. Maybe I'll put a shop rag over it in shame if it keeps gnawing at me. [:-banghead]

Fantastic details, Tony. I have a dirty greasy old wooden box bought at auction years ago full of metal parts. Iíll bet every workplace, shop and home garage had one or more. I think my car shop needs several.

I think I'll call it quits for the day. Been a lot of work doing very small things. So here are the latest.

Tony,

Great photos of how the items you have been scratch building fit into the structure. They definitely look like they belong and are well used.
This project just keeps getting better and better. Thanks for these tutorials. They are especially beneficial for modelers, like myself, doing some scratch building in O-Scale.

You the master of tiny detail. Love your miniature tool and boxes detail. Just wonderful.

Bob,
Thank you. I am glad that I can entertain, honestly.

Dave, thank you very much. From your words, it sounds like I am doing just what I imagined.

Bernd, really appreciate your comments. Thank you so much.

And lastly, Michael, thanks, I appreciate it.

Just got these in the mail from Shapeways. Lots of tools, a little clean up is expected, and painting, but this will add a lot of detail. There are hammers, vices, clamps, and much more. Neat stuff. You have to be careful how you separate the 'bunch', as you might cut the head off a long hammer or something. I bought more items, but were hard to photograph in the white state.

Tony,

If these shop tools were available in 1/48th scale I'd be all over them!

Thanks, Dave S.

Ask the person who designed them, see if he can scale it up. I have asked others to scale something down, and they were happy to do so.

I had the same question! I am waiting for a response as I type.
