i need some advise please....
the figure is broken in a few places: head, the saw, and a foot. what is the best glue for mending him? i really wanna finish the dio over the next few days and i need him in order to finish up. the figure is made of a resin, not the pewter i'm familiar with.
thanks in advance....

i just got an email from narrow gauge modeling company. he shipped the lps saturday, so i'll probably get them tomorrow. hopefully i'll be able to finish this thing over the weekend.

Kevin just a great job on this diorama.
The LP your waiting for most likely got killed by kamikaze pilots who were lost!!!

i hope to finish this up over the upcoming 5 day weekend (i took 2 vacation days).
i can't finish it until the lps show up though. they should have been here last week....

Nice work Kevin. Everything looks great.

Well done Kevin!

My thought for now is that the fencing, details and new scenery add a lot to the scene. They complement all your hard work building the structures.

made some more headway on the kit scenery. i would say i'm about 90% finished with it. frankly i'll be happy to finish it up so i can clear off the workbench. it's a disaster area that hasn't been cleaned off since i started on o'niell's a couple of years ago. anyway..here goes.
i have a couple of lp's coming that will be building this storage shed. its just sitting there for now. when the lps get here the scene will be "embedded" in the dirt.
working around the back....
the fence is not glued in at this point.
i scratch built a pipe rack for the rear of the warehouse.
the dock awning is just sitting on the roof for now (to get it out of the way). i still have some work to do on this end, and when it's finished my friend's wife will take pics of this finished dio and my finished o'neill's.
thoughts and prayers??

i've been getting figures from narrow gauge modeling company, and they're o scale.

Both builds (the structure and the garden) are impressive.

Nice and natural.
Who is your source for figures? ( You probably mentioned it, but I was

Hi Kevin, your backyard looks beautiful with all of your flowers in bloom.
Looks like a great space for a garden railroad!
Your diorama is also coming to life with your scenery work.
I don't see any chimneys on the structures, are they still to come?
