While working on a Kato SD-40-2 the other day I had an idea for a photograph, but had no model (a people type model), so I decided to be photographer and model. I apologise in advance for the size of the image, I'm used to posting on photography websites and the image was sized for them but maybe it will load ok for the dialup users here.
I hope you like it.

Nice photo Jarrell! The only thing I can think of to improve it would be to switch out the diseasal for a USRA 2-6-6-2...... :rolleyes:

Your photos are always excellent!

Thanks fellas.
Jim, I think I'm trying to put that itty bitty horn in the itty bitty hole. :)
Ray, I tried a little 0-8-0 switcher but, it being black, it just kinda blended right in too much. Couldn't really tell much about what I was doing, so I figgered a red'un would do it.

Nice picture portrait Jarrell. I too have the problem of those pesky teeny tiny parts shooting out from the tweezers:mad:, Having to find them in the carpet is another story:(

A little hint here;put a rubberband like comes on an news papper on your tweezers to hold them to together this works for me,by the way I have over the years picked up all diffrent kinds & sizes of tweezers,you will do that as well I'am sure.

Rex, I've hit a dry spot in the layout. I'm about to glue down the roadbed and can't seem to get around to it.. :)

This is my weapon of choice to keep the itty-bitties from escaping. You have to squeeze these tweezers to OPEN them.
