Here's my contribution for the week. A lumber shack I salvaged from somewhere. (And it's going on my layout for a change.) The interesting thing is not the shack itself, but that the camera was destroyed in a fall. I took it apart trying to fix it, and found it beyond repair. These photos where still on the memory stick, and the camera held together with dangling wires, held power long enough for me to upload these shots.

Very nice work, guys! Chip, I'm glad you got to keep one for your RR! :cool:

Here's a scene LGM set up. Not the police dog chasing the Dodge Charger. :D

I've got that exact tower in line to get restored. Yours looks a lot better than mine. It's all black.

Four shots for now, paint faided, maybe just a HAIR to white, but I like the way it turned out, and, its not quite done yet, fuel tank needs faiding, dirt, and fuel stains, coupler cut bars, MU hoses, windows... The norm from me. More shots tomorrow after I do a bit more painting tonight, I have a white 45' semi trailer to show off, and an SD60M to work on.

Anyways I think I need some rubbing alchol to help thin the artists oils better, for a better wash over the next thing I faid.

Btw, car modelers, check out the HoK paints at wal*mart (if your wal*mart carries them), some neat looking colors. California i know of at least, is switching, Buy Testors there while you can, cheap!

It's a $5 trainshow special I repainted. I didn't realize it was leaning until I shot it from that angle...:eek:

I expect yours will be looking good soon. :)

Josh, nice work!

jbaakko, don't worry about the white. The 'excess' you see will disappear once you put a coat of black over it, but it will still look faded. :) Trust me, I've done lots of these.

Thanks, my first time handpainting the bonnet, well first bonnet ever! Didn't turn so bad, 'cept its a bit darker then the rest of the yellow, I used Testors yellow enamel for a base coat (cause its thicker...).

Here we have BNSF 9277, the SD60M that was lucky and got H1:

And here's the 45' trailer, now all it needs is TIPZ decals and the roof/plate paint:

Looks great Josh! Man, someday when you get a RR built, it'll have some cool locos running around.

Here's what I've been working on this afternoon. It's my second semi scratched searchlight signal. I used heavier brass wire (.020") for the laddder/service platform on this one and used a different base without a relay cabinet. It's good to have a few signals up! So far, they're just wired to a stationary decoder thru an Atlas snap relay. When they are selected on the throttle, they all change to the correct aspect. I can't wait till we get some electronics to drive them automatically.

GTW in the summer of 53
In my greetings to the board jbaakko asked for some photos of some of my GTW stuff so here goes my first photo post. Please let me know if I did anything wrong.

They are both from Overland and I didn't paint them. I am not that good with an airbrush nor do I know if I ever will be.

Dean,

I saw that first photo and though, "Wow! I have a GP-30 in the same paint scheme." Then you went and painted it.

sorry, i just like harbor mist grey and armour yellow, better then the color of metal.LOL!:D Chip, is your GP-30 painted, or is it a metal body? two more questions come to mind, if its painted, what road has/had an all silver GP-30?, and if its metal, who makes metal GP-30's? -Dean
