    This weekend will be tough for modeling. We have baseball and softball all the time. It starts tonight with my daughter’s tournament try-outs. Tomorrow she has a 9 AM game, then a birthday party. In the afternoon my son has a birthday party followed by a game. Sunday is daughter try-outs, son game, daughter play-off game, and son try-outs. Monday my son has a play-off game.

    All I would like to do is finish weathering the Ralston-Jefferson hopper this weekend.

    Well let's see:

    This weekend I might actually get something done. Got most of the outside work done, so I should have some time plus it's hot, need to stay inside.

    I plan on finishing rebuilding the drive of the TM FA1 and then the B unit. Got some kits this week that could be built, there is lots, so something will get done!!!!!![​IMG]

    Run trains; run trains did I mention run trains!!![​IMG]

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!-[​IMG]

    First piority for the weekend will be finishing the scenery demonstration diorama. I colored all the rock work, added the cground cover and ballasted the track. Now I just have to add some denser foilage and it'l be finished.
    After that I have three engines for repainting, one athearn trainmaster to go into CNR colors (yes they have one) for my club. Then I have two Mantua 2-6-0 engines that I'm disassembling, striping and repainting and relettering 'Kettle Valley' #s 4,5. I'd better do a good job, these are for my boss!
    Finally I'm hoping to get the decaling on my doodlebug project done, if I have time.

    I plan to work on a few MDC rolling stock kits and the 50s style gondola kit with my son and work on a few of my loco projects also.
