    If weathering is a new concept for you (as it is for me) then I recommend doing as you go along. If you mess up (like I often do) then it is the best time to re-do it when it is half complete, rather than at the end when everything else is glued already. If a little bit gets messed up as you handle the model while working on it (and believe me, it will) it's a lot easier to touch it up than to do it completely at the very end. However, this is my opinion only. ;)

    Really looking FANTASTIC! And hard to believe it's you first go at it!

    LOL - I can see your mom's future now, low heel shoes with the toes pointing up as they were formerly high heels, butter sitting directly on the table with no dish, as the butter dish became a building, all the cups gone from the cupboard as they are used for mixing paint, can't cook because the sifter is gone for sifting soils, the blender ruined by making ground foam from sponges, of course the sponges are all gone so she can't clean up, etc., etc., hehehe Poor lady! :D :D :D

    Great job on that building! :thumb:

    Every once and a while my wife notices something missing. Lucky for me, the cat has been known to knock stuff on to the floor and our dog has a habit of eating anything it can get its teeth onto. She no longer asks me if I know where something is, instead she simply blames the dog, and assumes the object is buried somewhere outside. If she ever looks in the train room however, I may end up sleeping in the yard. :oops:

    It looks to me like Cobblers Knob Oil Co.

    A reputable distributor of all grades of gasoline from one tank and your choice of diesel or kerosine from the other!

    :D :D :D
