Tony, very nice job on the whole scene! It looks like the castings box will need some serious restocking after this diorama.Pat

To all who just responded, thank you. It has been one of my more enjoyable projects. I won't have to replenish the castings box though, I still have plenty for other scenes.

Thanks again.
Tony

Thank you Mike. I am glad you enjoyed it. I have not got anything set for my next project. I have so many unbuilt kits, I was thinking about actually doing a real kit for a change. I have even taken a Pensy M1a loco from Bowser off the shelf and have been contemplating doing that. (it will be a first). And I have been researching fire houses for another scratchbuild. So right now, it is open to anything.
Thanks again,
Tony

Hi Tony;
I Just read this entire thread today and you did a fantastic job especially with your comments and tips(as well as the comments of others). I have a 1/2" scale coopers garage in the planning stages and this will be a great help.

Thank you:
BobB

Bob, I forgot to get back to this, sorry, by wanted to say thank you. Actually, I based the idea off of the Coopers Garage also. I had built the model once, sold it many years ago, and bought the kit yet again, but I wanted to do something different without using the kit. It just kind of grew on me.

Would you believe I never plan anything out! I just have an idea and start building. Crazy as it seems, I don't plan or draw plans. I have it all in my head. If I get to a sticky point and don't know where to go, I stop a while, sometimes a few days or a week, and think about it, mostly when I have a nap mid day, I just play scenarios out in my mind till it looks good, then I get back to building.

Tony
