    What's to do.
    Well, I lettered and decaled my SD35 for the Southwick & Winsted. The biggest pain was the number boards.

    And after four years of no roof(I built the sides and base, four years ago)
    This is how I hope it'll look on the layout.
    Not bad since starting at 11:00 this morning.

    Nice decal job:thumb::thumb: The number boards are usually the hardest for me too, especialy when I have to cut and paste the Numbers toghether.

    I like that shop. I have been thinking of building a module/display using a diesel service area as the theme. I only have 5' X18" to work with though. what are the measurements of your shop and the shelf you have it sitting on in the pic? Also, is that a Pikestuff model?

    Thanks
    Jim

    Thanks Sarge.
    Yep, its a Pikestuff. A kit called "the Shops".
    I don't have the dims. The shelf is just a old microwave cart I use for storing kits. I do plan on detailing it a little more, including some interior lighting.

    Thanks, I was looking at a couple of their kits on e-bay last night. One was a two bay shop, and the other was the "shop with add on office" I just not sur wich would be better for my limited space.

    Gee.
    I don't know what one that is. It was already built, and I bought it in the consignment section of my LHS.
    I do have the Walthers "Heavy Duty" crane kit which was going inside the shop. But after careful measurements....the kit ended up in the microwave cart.
