Truck Shop 3.0

Well here it is Truck Shop version 3.0. I'm planning on adding some of the stain you blot on to the beams and also darken the outside some. Then I'm back to the office.

Sledge Hammer

Holiday Greetings all!
Some say it was a bad storm other little people seem to think it the wrath of an angry god and some even report seeing a large fist desending from the sky.

Before you morn the loss of my Truck Shop, notice the framing beside it is no longer GREEN!! Besides by the time I'm done I will have framing and basic grey/brown weathering down. It didn't take but a couple hours to reframe. I had Kappler on hand. "

No Not Too Green

I have started on the nail holes but everything I do seems to close them back up. What size pin do you use in your vise and at what 'point' in the process. Should I wait until after the walls are stained and mostly weathered? Or is there a reason for now?

You know sitting 10' away from my green monster it doesn't look so bad. Maybe, all my close-up work and pictures over-emphasize the green.

Too Green?

Maybe my Truck Shop isn't too green. Everytime I add something it looks better to me. Maybe just the eyesite going. Didn't get to the office today. Will try Friday.

My name is Wally and I'm addicted to buying models bought Baxter's, Schramm's and a CC Crow roundhouse on ebay last night. It has been 24 hours since my last bid. I need a sponsor to call when I have the urge.

Green Monster

Well after two days without cable or internet I'm back. Somehow I didn't get a whole lot done.

I did talk to Brett and learned the logic of battens, every building in RRC has a different texture. I still think battens on an open air structure would be unlikely but I did it anyway.

My other experiment turned out less well. I want some green mildew weathering instead I got a green building. Any suggestions? No, St Nick a sledgehammer is out of the question it might break the new glass on my work table.

Off to do XMAS---maybe soon I can work on the office...I started it yesterday while I wait on a few windows I need from SW."
