With its shorter days and days off, this time of the year tempts the modelmaker to start new projects. I try to resist temptation by beginning the new year with fewer unfinished projects on my desk.

One that has gone unfinished for too long is my model of a Central of Vermont boxcar, actually a modified BTS laser kit of a PRR 28' boxcar. Today it went through the paint shop.

Next step: Art Griffin decals.

Yes. Muddy Waters is a favorite of mine.

Examples of my interest:




With varying degrees of competence on my part.

It reads as if you like "pure" blues! I'm talking the honest-to-goodness blues on which the other genres of blues evolved from.

Blues, like this:


Am I right?

Michael Hohn Posted - 07/12/2019 : 6:54:44 PM

My ďbeater guitarĒ on the left and newer one on the right.

The older one, bought 47 years ago when I was a student, needs a repair which Iím planning to have done next week. It has lighter strings and Iíll probably use it for open tunings and to take places where I donít want to take my better one.

Iím learning fingerstyle picking, Piedmont and delta styles.

OK Hogger Posted - 07/12/2019 : 2:14:28 PM
Blues, eh?

I like to play some blues (more of a rock blues type)... and funk... and R&B... and modern Jazz and...

Been a bassist for over 50 years.

Here's my current go-to bass:

Music has been a very big part of my life since I was a child.

Thank you, Andre.

Iím off to a blues guitar workshop next week; there will be a slowdown in progress and updates.

Like you I prefer real dirt although I have some commercial ground foam ďearthĒ to use up and will do so in spots.

OK Hogger Posted - 07/12/2019 : 12:27:59 PM
I was wondering when we'd see an update!

Thanks for sharing with us how you're making this come together!

BTW: In the past, I've used sifted dirt and really like it... except for the talcum-like dust. Nothing looks more "real", though!

Michael Hohn Posted - 07/12/2019 : 12:13:59 PM
Iíve started covering the painted area with actual dirt. I do a little at a time. The slope to the left is still wet.

Once I finish the dirt Iíll add grassy stuff.

I also need to build a ramp for track coming up from the mainline.

Thank you, HŚkan! I appreciate your looking in.

Like the progress Mike
Floquil Earth was fun

OK Hogger Posted - 07/02/2019 : 5:15:25 PM
LOL on Sherwin Williams "Floquil Earth"!

Starting to look more like a scene!

We wait...

Michael Hohn Posted - 07/02/2019 : 4:54:33 PM
I covered the paper landforms with plaster gauze, then painted the area with "Floquil Earth" from Sherwin Williams. Here it is after the layer of plaster gauze and partially painted:

Completely painted, ready for ground cover:

Bet you never knew Sherwin Williams made a color called "Floquil Earth." Here's the story: in his book "Realistic Model Railroad Scenery" Dave Frary recommended using a color similar to Polly S "Earth" for painting the scenic base. In a rare moment of lucidity, I took a spray can of Floquil "earth" I had on hand, sprayed a board with it, and had Sherwin Williams match it in a latex. They don't know the real name; they call it "Manual" but I know it's really "Floquil Earth."

Michael Hohn Posted - 06/30/2019 : 08:59:16 AM
Thanks, Andre. I do hope so. Iím debating right now on the next step.
