Tony, you are a connoisseur with a pallet for fine modeling.

Thank you Dave. I was looking at a way to simplify how to makes these, as at one time I used styrene for a jig, making 1 at a time, and it was hit and miss, and have learned that if I make a jig to make several at a time, it not only saves time, but is very easy to do.

Since our last Indian Nations meeting when I gave that presentation, I think it was you that asked if I use Canopy glue. I did on very infrequent occasions, so since then I have been using it more often. It's easy, too, to just put a small drop on some paper (or glass plate) to use, so it isn't wasted, but it also dries quick and clear, and I have been using it more often since. So I have you to thank for that idea, see how just a simple question can lead to a train of thought?

Thanks Bernd, maybe there should be a separate category in the forum for just tips etc., so everyone can share not only on their thread, but there as well, or if they just have a great idea to share. I keep coming up with another one once in a while.

And fine cooking too, as my wife will tell you (or she'd better ).

Very small detail added, a stove pipe. Thought it finally needed one.
Made from styrene (from heater and outside vent) and brass (small bit at top to vent to outside pipe.

Looks pretty sketchy to me. I hope your railroad has insurance.

Small detail, significant impact.

Well, as you can see, it has already had an effect on the roof , Not sure even then that insurance was available for a small backwoods engine shop from the 1930-1940's? I would think they were for a limited time use anyway.

Thought I would finally fix the shrubbery, I had a tree there for a while to see if I liked the spot, and I did, so I expanded on it. After all, if you go back on some pictures, it wasn't a very nice looking tree.

Everything's looking great Tony.

Those trees look really nice- how did you accomplish the bark look?

Thank you, the bark looks like it was painted white with black markings, I didn't do it, as these were bought in a box of a couple of dozen some 15 or so years ago at a hobby shop, ready to plant as-is, but I didn't like the foliage much, so I removed it and added my own.

Tony,

I like those trees. They help to plant your loco shed.

No, I donít imagine there was insurance for operations like this.

Mike
