Bill, What a great idea, I don't think I ever saw a model library on a model railroad.

I'm glad you were able to find a buyer for your books, and gained some display space for your models in the bargain.

Besides a nearly complete set of Gazettes, I also have a collection of around 2000 record albums. Although some are pretty rare, they all represent a very narrow, niche genre of music. They mean a lot to me but probably worthless to anyone else. Kind of sad to think they'll likely end up in the dump when I'm gone.

OK - This is a little bit older by a few years, but still....

Ray, Ted, Dallas, KP, Greg, and Dave, Thanks for your comments.

I'm not sure what the old vehicle suggestions are about but they sure do look like FUN. However, if
Mr. DiMone has a vehicle I'm sure it would be a 1930's model, or even a 1940 or 41 model, he is
quite prosperous being the only hardware wholesaler/retailer in town.

Well, I've been working on T.A.DIMONE'S warehouse. I started because I found this neat
model and set of drawings in an old Model Railroader magazine. It was too big so I had to
selectively reduce it to fit my needs. I was going to make it one story instead of two but a
quick drawing I made showed me that it did not look right. The drawing I made is not detailed,
just enough to work out the sizes and to make sure the graphics would fit, it was the graphics
that grabbed my eye to begin with. I have the decal sheet made out and here's the blank walls
to get started. They are foam core with styrene sheathing instead of paper which will make it
easier for me to glue to it. I am cutting clapboards and WOW, it will sure take a bunch of
clapboards.

Greg, Dave, and Michael, thanks for your comments.

Here I have the door and window openings framed in to help align the clapboards. I also have
guidelines penciled in to help keep the clapboards straight. I had forgotten to mark in
the stud locations which are needed later when I got above the door height, those areas are wider
than the length of my clapboards and to keep it right I would have to have clapboards join over
studs. I did pencil them in when needed.
