EVENING FELLOWS ... Thanks for the warm welcome back! It was a warm one here, or my body just doesn't want to take the heat like I used to love it?
Wasn't but 86 today, but actually I sweated veing that the humidity was high also - very unsual . The sky darkened, but no rain fell.
Thought you guys would like this video - if it will show ??
Oh, DANG .. It 's a FB one .. for those who do not do FB.
TERRY - Is it possible that you can smag it away from the FB formatting????
Appreciate a try!
Ken, FYI, I do have a LokProgrammer set up if you need files changed or a "nekkid" decoder needs files added.Louis, I guess I've just been spoiled up to this time, with packages usually getting here within 4 days of being shipped. **sigh** I just wish this had been an item that can easily be re-ordered, not something that's rare and generally unavailable [without a huge amount of extra work and/or $$$].
I'll have to count this as a "watched pot that never boils" and butcher one of my existing GP38's to squeeze a sound decoder and speaker into it.
It's happening more often than I wish.Spent some time in the train room last night. mostly looking for stuff that was lost in plain site, covered by something else.
Looks good Alan. I only wish I had the patience. William.A bit of progress today. Got the aluminum flashing painted over lunch hour. Now fiddling with the full width diaphragms. They aren't too bad really. Position them, drill and tap one of four holes, put a screw in to hold it snug, then do the other three. Here's the thing: You can't paint these things. Whatever plasticized fabric or whatever they use will not take paint. Fred Hill at the Coach Yard told me they could be inked. I guess we'll see. Even if I leave them as is, they still look lots better than that yawning gap between cars!
I'll do some decaling this evening!
