Tom, I always enjoy seeing the big stuff.
Some new JD tractors and a load of seed are being delivered to Drew's Feed and Seed.
Lots of work yet to do on this scene, people, more ground cover, litter around the dock, items on the dock, etc.
Spanky Bird I like that 9446 box car for some reason. Everything looks real good
Tom I think trash is the hardest thing to add to a scene,
Iam going to give this a try , I hope it works.East bound freight going past Clifton Forge. click on the image.
I agree Les! Great video!
Neat pics Spankybird! I really like the steamer!
Tom, the Feed and Seed is a terrific building and I admire your control panel.
Here Penn Central SD9 6922 awaits assignment at the engine service area.
I modeled this specific loco number after seeing this proto photo.
Finished another craftsman kit today, a CNR wood reefer.
My new RailBox has been darkened slightly with some subtle weathering. The couplers have been changed out also. It now sports a pair or Kadee #5's.
Nice start to the tread guys,
a variety from me.... progress pics, a tanker and another Midwestern barn.
Kyle I love that barn.
Me too! Tell us a little about its construction!
That barn is great, Kyle:thumb: I can just imagine some enterprising farmer taking advantage of a nearby derailment to make those loft doors. I knew of a farmer who bought the remains of a cylindrical hopper after a derailment, drug it out into his field and now uses it as a "silo" for harvest time. Would those be vertical blind slats used for the roofing?
Crew change at Selbyville on my B&MC shunting puzzle...
RE the barn.... good call on the vertical blinds! I found 50 linear feet of this material somebody was throwing out. Let's just say I'm set for roofing and siding for a while!
Ralph, the construction is textured wallpaper samples over a plastic box that once held CDs... and the ends are cardstock. It's sturdily held together with CA and "Liquid Nails" I cut the holes and windows after the fact.
Here's another one where I used the same techniques.
Thanks for the interest.
AWESOME PICS/WORK so far this week folks!!!:thumb::mrgreen:
Tom, i know the engine you have pictured is a 4-4-0, but when i seen it, it reminded me of the very FIRST engine i ever had:mrgreen: , a ten wheeler bought back in 1973-74 ...i cant quite recall:119: .
Two "new" Walthers Cryogenic reefers, I love these cars!
My recent buy from Wal*mart, 2 Mini Coopers (Reel Rides, the red & blue cars from Italian Job), Fresh Cherries, 2x Ford Tempo, 2X Ford Escort.
NewRay Tamol F1 hydro boat. The trailer under it is a JL innovative trailer, with a custom built frame to hold the boat.
The UP paint job on the new gondola is toast, replaced by the KCS black with white letters.
In my line of work I deal with oodles of this stuff and pondered its modeling uses. BTW, mini-Blinds are a good source of plow blades---I patched up this FP40 with one...
Nice use of materials Kyle and Shaygetz! I love it! Very effective in both cases. I've gotta start scrounging more for possible scratchbuilding supplies like that!
I've been somewhat busy today, as you can see. I wanted to use India ink and alcohol as the weathering agent but couldn't find any India ink. I did however find a pure black acrylic gel from Folk Art (plaid) that seems to be a good substitute.
All that remains is to add some rust here and there.
Head End of Conrail CIBU:
I was down by the station today and happened to catch a rather unique shot...
