What's been said, Bob. Great photos! The natural light really makes it.

Bob,

If you're "mulling" right now, it sounds like "Wine Time." I can get you some pretty good cheese, and....

I had a nice walk through on all your volumes, really nice to view. Be interesting to see where you go next after your finished your mulling.

Bill, Jeff, Pete, Frederic, and Lynn, many thanks for your nice comments, they are all appreciated.
I think I am settled on my next build. I was
looking through some very old Model Railroader magazines and found drawings for a small simple
Builder's Supply warehouse, I think it was the graphics that grabbed my eye. I am not going to
build it as drawn of course and I will change the graphics but it will still be a small Builder's
supply warehouse c. 1941.

I am selling a large portion of my library that will consist of about 1,000 books
and I will be very busy with that for the next few days.

I forgot to mention, the name on the warehouse will be in honor of frequent poster here on the forun, Ted.

Where did you find an outlet for your books? Mostly railroad ones?

I have close to that number of vintage car books, and would like to find a way to sell them to someone who wants them.

Winners only on this scene. I'm really liking the coloring of the concrete with the pudding effects outlined. I've never been able to capture the coloring correctly but you have. Really well done. Looking forward to the warehouse which may be a bit different of a structure to see how you handle it.

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

KP, Thanks for your note. That sidewalk is just three coats of Woodland Scenics Concrete ST1454
and a wash of black ink in alcohol.

Dave, No, they are military and naval subjects and represent only about half my collection. I
looked up used book dealers on the web and found Harvest Books in Philadelphia, supposedly one
of the biggest used book dealers in the country. The buyer is to be here on Monday. I sent him
photos of my book shelves so he could see the book splines with titles and he says he will
most likely buy them all. I have to get ready.

Dave, What I have trouble with are old model magazines, no one wants them. I took a few loads
to the recycle center and it about broke my heart but they had to go.

Now I bought the Gazette DVD so I will have to get rid of my magazines to make shelf space and I will
most likely have to take them to the recycle center too.

Bob, I was just thinking the other day, about my collection of books.
And what will happen to them all one day, after I'm not around to curate them anymore.
As you already know, you can spend a lifetime collecting them, and if no one in your family has any interest in what you've collected.
It makes you stop and think, what's going to happen to all of them.
I doubt that any book reseller will be willing to pay what you & I had to pay to acquire them in the first place.
I stopped buying magazines years ago, but I still like to purchase books that interest me.
I purchased 2 more of them, just yesterday.
I know that it may take a little longer, but you might try listing your titles on Ebay.
You may get a bit more for them that way, than selling the lot of them to a book dealer.
Best of luck with your endeavors!

Thanks Greg, I have already settled in my mind that I will not get any way near what I paid for
them but I did enjoy them for years. I do not want to take the time and effort to piecemeal
them on Ebay and have to pack and mail each one. There comes a day, and it has come for me, when you
realize that if you don't do it now some poor person in the family will have to do it later.
When I got real honest with myself I realized that most of those books have not been touched
for years except maybe to dust them.

I did save the ones I do refer to these days and some that have personal meaning to me.

Bob

Bob and Greg - I know exactly what you mean. I too took a bunch of my old magazines to the recycle center - mostly model railroad and car stuff. I'd be happy to give them to any comer, but nobody wants them enough to even pay for shipping! I've enjoyed them for years. Boom! gone.

Recently, I've been packing up a LOT of old unbuilt model car kits and sending them off to a company that is buying them for a pretty reasonable price. Still have a few more crates to go, but I'm no longer going to ever build them, so let someone else enjoy.

Two true modeling loves left: any Bugatti automobile in 1/24 scale, and model traction subjects in that same scale.

Still having fun!

Well, 22 boxes of books left here yesterday and it looks like two more trips will be required to
take all the books I want to get rid of. I had to force myself not to think about individual
books that I remember what I paid for them but the book dealer was a pleasure to work with and
all went well.

There was one good thing that happened. If you will remember, many of the structures that I
enjoy building will not fit on my model railroad so they are on shelves in the model RR room.
Last evening my wife said to me,"Since you will now have some shelve space in the rec room, why
don't you move some of your models up here and display them on the book shelves where everyone
can see them?" Sounds good to me.

Bob
