    It was another weekend of rainouts for baseball and softball as both kids had games rained-out. We did the usual bi-weekly shopping trips. I also spent some time working around the yard.

    On the modeling side of things I began to carve the stream wall. I also added more Sculptamold and contoured most of the ground around the stream and abandoned road.

    I built an HO 25-ton GE locomotive kit and painted it the cheery robin's-egg blue of the prototype I am modeling. It runs acceptably well, the only hitch is that I need a pair of #711 couplers and I was unable to make it to the LHS in time. The kit itself went together pretty easily, although I'm not quite done with the detail parts yet--the coupler lift bars are sitting in a film can of Blacken-It and I still need to add a horn and bell. Once the details in place and I have couplers it will be time to add some grime and rust. Right now it looks very, very toylike in its coat of unblemished blue paint...

    I spent Friday sleeping off a case of very bad chinese food. Here's a tip, if you go to the cheapest chinese buffet in town, there's a really good reason it's the cheapest!
    On Saturday there was an antique tractor, truck and gas engine show that I went to. saw some nice stuff there, especialy a gas powered log bucker saw from the 30's that was just begging to be modeled. I took some pictures of it for future reference.
    Sunday I mowed the lawn, weeded the garden and washed the car.

    I did get some model work in, I finished off my P2K mill gon, weathered in a light coat of rust dust, now i need some scrap to go in it.
    I also assembled the walls of my DPM cafe and did some preliminary work on the interior. I fitted the floor and worked out a floor plan for the walls, lunch counter ect. Now I gotta figure out how to make the funiture like tables, chairs and stools.

    Ralph's for fun!

    We were blessed with perfect Summer days in the Twin Cities this weekend so it was hard to go down to the basement. I did take some more pictures of the layout as planned, however, and have started a file in The Gallery.
