I got the roof support built. Boy, this progress photo cost me a fortune to get Bob in to hold up the support while I snapped a photo. First, the LP Union has a 2-hour minimum on Sundays. Then, because it is Superbowl Sunday, which the union considers a national holiday, it was triple time.

Dave, Your building gets more interesting with each new step.

Greg, your family in a shoe is a happy one. Certainly a unique model.

Norman, your grill turned out great.

Bruce, that's a fine project you have there. Bob did a great job of holding everything straight.


Meanwhile . . .
In the past week, I completed three loading platforms and shingled one side of the roof:



The chimney is ready to be installed before I shingle the other side of the roof. I also started the large canopy.

Mike,

That meat plant is really coming together nicely.

Norman - I don't do engines but yours is looking good.
Greg- I'm sure Mrs. Gordon is happy in her new digs
Michael- your meat plant is a good looking structure too. I hope the windows won't be difficult to install, as I tend to put them in before gluing walls together.
Bruce- details make the model but yours is looking superior without them
There's a load of inspirational progress on here and if I slighted anyone, I will catch you next time

Nice progress Mike. Your building is also getting more interesting with each step. It will sure be an attention grabber on your layout.

Jim, thank you.

Greg, I do hope I make the grade! The standard is high around here.

Rich, I usually install windows last so that I don't poke them out with a finger.

Dave, thank you. Layout? Well, I did move a few pieces of track around last night.

Mike

Mike, the meat packing plant is looking great.

Thanks for the comments, Rich, Mike & Greg. I'll get some detail items on that loading dock, Rich. Then the roof will go on.

Thank you, Bob.

Well, the rear of the model is complete except for some weathering. The roof is shingled with the same green 3-tab shingles from Rusty Stumps. The stairs that I added are also from Rusty Stumps. I hand painted the Model Power people last year. The winch is something that I had scratch built for another project and decided not to use and it sits on a pallet from Rusty Stumps. The milk cans are metal castings, source long forgotten. The tires are metal castings - Ulrich, I think.









Now back to the front of the model. I have to added rafter tails to the office structure.

I heard 'Bob' was down filing a 'grievance', but that besides that fact the project is 'on time, and maybe under budget'.

Bruce,

Really like that box car. Inspiration for a future project. Maybe TT scale.
