Rob, Bruce, Lance & Joe, thanks for your for your nice comments!

Rob, that line of weathering paints from MIG is wonderful, you should really give them a try.

Bruce, glad you liked the rust tips.

Lance, nice to see you visiting the forums once again!
I've been really missing going to the model train shows with you.

Joe, I went to the post office today and was disappointed that my inspection pits were not here yet.
Now I will have to wait until Tuesday to see if they arrived.
I've been imagining in my head, just how exactly I'm going to use them.
Cutting them into sizes that fit this shop is going to be the tricky part.
They come mounted on a wood backing, so I hope I can run them through my table saw without damaging them.
I think it will be alright.

Greg

Chuck, always nice to have you stop in to see what I'm doing!
Even better to get a positive comment from a excellent modeler who's work I admire so much!
So thank you for that!

Thanks! Mike.
I discovered this MIG line of paint by watching some military modelers using it.

Hi everyone, well I've been patiently waiting for my inspection pits to arrive by mail.
I've been keeping myself occupied by painting the castings & details that I will use in and around this shop.




I also upgraded the electrical mast & meter coming into the machine shop, so it will be ready to hook up to the transformer pole that I already showed you earlier.
I have also been adding gooseneck lights above most of the doors around the shop.
Like the one in the photo shown below above the front doors.





Really hope the inspection pits show up this week, so I can finish up this shop soon!

Greg

Good looking castings. It looks like the inspection pits aren't causing a work stoppage.

Just starting to play around with how I might place everything, it's all just sitting on a piece of cardboard.
The 2 shop foremen haven't complained about anything yet, so that's a good sign.
Here's a first photo showing the outdoor crane next to the shop.

Greg, I know how frustrating it can be waiting for an order to arrive but it looks like you are
using your time well in getting all the details ready.
