    Try this again:
    Sorry it won't let me post at 60,000.
    Kit-bashed from Bachman's little red school house, it takes two.
    I think that is Mr. Allison in the door way and that may be a keg of Kentucky finest on the truck dock! Great little kit-bash and there is room for a couple of box cars in the back of the building. :rolleyes:

    Can anyone tell me why it won't let you post at 70,000 any more?
    Oh well, you get the jest of it. Sorry Charlie! :mad:

    "J" to quote Jon "FANTABALISTIC" I've looked at that school kit and passed over it many times, could not see any practical uses for it. Wow, you sure opened my eyes. Love the brick work, any secrets you could pass on?

    The kit cost 2.65 at Model Expo as they are giving up on trains (other good buys also), at that price I will try anything. I used 2 kits on this project, the back has a addition also. Be sure to square and GLUE it as it is a snap model. I weather everything I do, on this I used alc. & india ink. Once light and when dry another heavy one here and there. Then I used weathering chalks from Docs. I made the roof on the two story on cardstock and the puter. Like I said at that price you could build a large complex cheap. Add a few things from the scrap box and bingo a desent new business. Never-NEVER pass up a bargain, it may just surprise you and your imagination! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    I have said it before, but I'll say it again! You need to get a layout underway so you have a place to put all these fantastic structures! :cool:

    I built one of those schoolhouse kits so I can see what you've done. It take talant to be able to transform things like that. Great stuff, I'm always pleased to see what can be done beyond the normal.

    A model well made Jim. The creeper is a very nice touch. Weathering looks really good.
    If you use the browse feature, the size of a photo you can post is 640 by 480 pixels. If you have your photo stored at a webpage the you can click on "IMG" above the post window and put in the address of the photo which can be of any size. You can also use that feature to post more than one photo in the same post.

    I have tried the 640X480 and at below 70,000 bytes and it still will not accept the pictures. If you notice the pictures I posted are below 450 and at 57,000 bytes before it would accept them, thus losing most of the features needed. The setting allowed would be fine for posting if it would take it. Been doing this for years and this is the only place I have problems like that. I dunno! hehe :rolleyes: ;)

    I've had the same prob., and just shrinking the image to just under the allowed size works for me, like 630 X 4whateveritcomewsoutto

    That hasn't happened for me yet Jon. Thanks guys for all the nice comments even though you can't see all the detail. :D

    That structure looks terrific. It is especially interesting to see somebody "thinking outside the box" when it comes to kits. A good kitbash goes a long way towards individual-izing a layout. Great work. --Stu--

    Wow Jim - great kitbash, super weathering - I love it!!!!!!

    Sometimes when I'm posting an image, even though it's the correct size, if I've saved it at medium or better quality I get the image size is too large message too. Could this be what is happening with your images?
