Frank', it is difficult to believe that tug is not metal. It is a very, very, realistic looking vessel. The weathering is just perfect. Outstanding achievement Frank..OUTSTANDING''..

Thanks David.

Thanks for the kudos on the weathering Ted. I have to control myself to not go all out on the weathering. Most tugs I saw on the net were in really good condition.

Iím knot finished totally, still have the name plaques.

OK, next Saturday's open house is looming so we had a full crew working on scenery yesterday. We'll see how it looks Wednesday when the glue is dry. We will then blend in some additional colors on the static grass and get serious about planting the buildings and some detail around the scenes.




This gives you a sense for the overall color balance.


Cool shot from Frank's car float with the lights on and the yard in the background.


The good news is the pool of white glue does not present toxic hazard to the local residents:)


This is our "scenery assembly line" Henry Ford would be proud. We had three static grass guns going at one time as well. It's Florida, and I was expecting an lightening strike.


This gives you a picture of the layout looks like overall at this point.


Dave laser cut two signs for the facia.


Still more detail to add to the Westinghouse building this week but at least the lights are on. We now have two lighting scenes, full daylight and dusk which can be switched back and forth with a rocker switch. Here you see two buildings in the dusk mode.

Jim,

Thatís an awesome view down the length of the layout. I also like the lineup of glue dispensers.

Thanks, Mike. I had to whip the crew into shape to beat the deadline for next Saturday. Fortunately they responded. I do think we cleaned Sam's Club out of mustard/ketchup dispensers though.

Frank,
I look at your tug and barge and think...How does He do it? The detail and the realism is extraordinary!
Always a pleasure to see your models.
