    I had shown the before when they were just primed. They are done now (well almost, I will weather them a little later on). The first one is an NJ Custom Brass Erie bay window caboose. I replaced the old solid roofwalk with a Plano photo-etched one. I also replaced the "wagon wheel" antenna with an Overland Models one (they were available for a while and I had a few in the parts box for some RS-3's that I never did). I used Prime Mover decals, Polly Scale paint and Microscale clear coats (gloss before decaling, satin after).

    My clean workbench was a lesson learned from my father. He didn't teach it to me, but rather had the opposite. My dad has a basement that is around 20' X 40'. If you go down there with a can of soda, you will prabably be unable to find a place to put it down. And the stuff isn't "good" stuff either. It's mostly crap. He has a huge workbench with an island in the middle and a clear workspace about the size of a magazine. It takes him 1/2 hour to locate each tool for a project and many times, if you pull out..say..a screw driver....WHAMM!!! Major crapalanch!! Anyhow, just an entertaining story I felt like telling.

    Worse than my work area Blake? Those hacks look great and while they may visit Jim's layout I know where they'll be residing! And they'll be needed for the Berk and the Mikado Broadway Ltd. is coming out with.
