Good Morning! Coffee is on help yourself. Was looking around on youtube and found this mill video that is near my homestead. Someone said the main building fell in. Just terrible.

Hi Everyone - Fresh coffee is available and hot water is available for those who prefer tea. I have pancakes with treacle available for those who would like some.
It is 6:30 am Monday morning here at the Museum. I have a Powerpoint presentation to finish today for my Taiwan trip which starts Wednesday when I fly out of Brisbane bound for Taipei.
A friend of mine passed away earlier this year and I had been named in his Will to receive all his books, magazines and research notes. This material has now been delivered to my home - all 150 cartons of it. It is currently taking up one side of my two car garage under our house. Fortunately our 2-car carport will be finished today so our three cars (wife's, Raymond's and mine) can be housed under cover. My friend was a railway history researcher and had authored or co-authored several books on railways in South Africa, the Middle East and South America. It is through books that have been written by people such as my friend that we can gain ideas for modelling. There are many American authors that have written books about narrow gauge in the States that I collect and that have helped me in my inspiration for a Colorado layout.

David,
Sorry about your buddy, it sounds like you have have a lot to remember him with.




This little guy was today's project. It almost got tossed 5-6 times. I decided I need to finish a bunch of projects before I'm allowed to open a new kit.

So to keep a long day a short story, here goes.

After getting the entire structure glued on square, 2 hours work (three attempts) I went to test it and no sound.

I wasn't about to try to pull the structure off so plan b. Pull off just the back of the water tank.

Sure enough the speaker wire came unsoldered.

What to do, the speaker was under two circuit boards with one screwed in. After some head scratching I drilled three holes in the roof to allow screwdriver access.

Speaker resoldered... then hockey take to the rescue. I used black stick tape to make a canvas roof to cover the hole I had to drill.

Rear of tank glued back in.

I need to finish the junk and weathering but at least this is no longer a box of parts.

Green bottle is on the counter and my glass is poured.

Larry,

Great day to you and I'm glad you got your car back in working order. It is far too great a model to toss it out.

I would like to say thank you for beginning the thread to honor Bill. It has gotten me motivated into making something again after a modeling "slump", and I too have a bunch of projects that never got completed. Our time is short, especially mine after working for 50 years, and still getting up at 5.

Sorry David.

I also have many shelf orphans that are finished or undone.

Nice looking Shay Larry! I have 2 of those...undone MDC conversions. A pain indeed but they make a neat tiny shay compared to Bachmann!

Mmmm. Cinnabons! How many times have I said "not buying anything until I finish what I have!". I need deadlines. Having a painting competition or other deadline always helped. When I had a hobby store, I would hold "Paint of Die" events. People would register their gaming army, and pledge to paint so many points per week or month and post pictures of their progress. It gave them something to work towards and got their stuff painted. Anyway, back to the cinnabons.............

It's been that kind of month - non-stop rain and chilly so I put a bottle of Bailey's out to warm up the coffee. Enjoy!
Cheers,
Dave
