Martin,

Plumbing is one of my least favorite maintenance jobs. Maybe itís different in miniature. Yours looks pretty good and it would certainly pass inspection.

Thanks! While I can do plumbing work, I do try to avoid it when possible. I have a wet bar to tear out this weekend; demo is fine, but settling the plumbing aspect is not high on my list of enjoyable activities. The family has learned that when I take such projects on that clearing out of the house is to their advantage.

The more plumbing I do, the more I'm willing to pay someone else to do it. The challenge is finding a plumber will actually come out and do the work in a reasonable time.

Ok, the new build car is ready for the paint shop; got to tape of the sides and shoot the underbody, ends and roof. Just have to locate my tape.....and some grey paint.

Thanks, guys!

Now I just have to get the Scalecoat mixed up a bit for the airbrush that I still might be able to use -- had to use channel locks to open the paint - got lucky and did not break the bottle.....this time.

In the mean time, I'll see about wrapping up the rebuilt car and getting a coat of primer on it.

Nice work on the cars Martin. The airbrush is something else I have to master.
Still following along

I am working my way up to marginally competent although I may be stuck at just marginal.

Martin, it's far more than marginal, in fact I can't believe it's not butter :)

That came out nicely. At some point I may simplify my life enough to try an O scale coach or two, to go along with a Pacific I bought years ago. But then I'll need to make friends with someone with an O scale layout.

Martin, I've been peeking in along the way on the covered hopper build salvage job. Nice work, I like them a lot.
