    I will have new bulbs for the photo lighting, before the final pic needs to be shot!
    Anyway, here's the back side after painting.

    Looks like you're getting in just under the wire Pete. But, with a great structure. :thumb::thumb: I can't help but be impressed, looking good, real good...

    Oh, I sent some of my N scale LGM over to give you a hand, but they came back and said something about not being able to work on HO without doubling their pay. :rolleyes: :D :rolleyes: :D Looks like you're getting along just fine without them though.:wave: :wave:

    Lessee, 1:160 to 1:20 comes to about eight times the N payscale. But in this case we have to add the extra cost of super loooonngg ladders..:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    But, at the rate I pay those guys, about 200 ducus per farsnap, (which I have not been able to equate to dollars per hour yet), you won't have much to worry about...:rolleyes: :D :rolleyes: :D

    The last rate of exchange for the ducu, was 20,000 ducus = $1.00. At least for the next 12 gualongs, a farsnap is about 2 hours, give or take a couple of microseconds. :D :D

    Pete, Yeah, it didn't add up for me either. I didn't want it to divide my attention, so I stopped thinking about it. That about sums things up. :D :D
