    Well the weekend is over, did we get anything done in the world of modeling?

    I only managed to get the box cut off the ice cream truck to make my MofW vehicle. Deciding how I want to build up the bed and back of the cab, but it looks just like the one's I remember. Didn't get any cars built.:(

    I didn't even run trains, I was tied up with other things!!:cry:They're mad.:mad:

    Hope others got accomplished what they wanted to!:thumb:

    I got some more work on the Pink Boutique. I added some signs and lettering to the walls. I also found some signs I will use for the windows. I began painting the sign for the building and also adding some paint to different areas of the base.

    I worked on my engine servicing facility. Managed to landscace most of it, including installing the retaining walls. I scratch-build an ash pit and build up an oil tank. Now I'm scratchbuilding/ kitbashing a sanding facility.

    Started layin' asphalt on my module for the train meet at the Hadji Temple in September. Had an interesting repair fix on my Rivarossi Hudson-the tender steps were broken off so I used the steps off of a Monogram Models unpowered Hudson kit tender found in a scrap pile and grafted them onto the Rivarossi body. Worked like a charm.

    i FINALLY finished my 4 SD40T-2's! that was one project i dont want to do again :D

    if anyone is interested i can post the article on how i built them here.

    now, it's time to start doing research so i can build a pair of Southern Pacific TEBU's (tractive effort booster units, kinda like a slug, but used for road service)

    and then i'll have to build a pair of GP40-2's to control them.
