Howdy All! I've been keeping busy with parenting (brand new baby as of 9/21:mrgreen and other honeydos. Still, in the moments in between these activities I have managed to sit at my workbench and just stare at the Shifter project. It has stalled again and, while no doubt it will be a fantastic little beastie when finished, my brain just needs diversion. I'm sure many of you can relate to the need for 2 or more modeling projects at once - heck, once you've begun a layout you automatically qualify for that category! In that spirit, and in the spirit of finishing a few half-baked kits, I pulled out the Sierra Coach I started a few years back. The body has an initial coat of paint and the underbody detailing is completed and likewise has its coat of black applied. What's left is the interior (great little Walthers add-on), the end rails, decals and weathering. The instructions provide a template for bending the railings so that one is easy. I decided to scan the instruction sheet in order to have a railing template I can get messy (tack it down to a board and make a jig, perhaps). The tricky one is going to be the interior. A floor plan is provided but is not to scale. I figured I could photoshop it and scale it up to size so that's what I did, then printed a new one. Fine. Now the hitch - the little seats provided are WAY too wide. I'm debating on whether to narrow the seats on both sides of the aisle, or chop one side in half to make a double row down one side and single seats down the other. Any thoughts? Pics to follow later today.
