One of the best flat tires I've ever seen!

Thanks Mike.

Rob, Iím lucky to be associated with such a talented group.

Mike (rails), I canít take the credit, it all goes to the styrene tire/rim casting and my mini propane torch.

You had to know how to use the torch Frank. I would have had a molten blob that didn't resemble anything much less a tire.

Frank. The truck looks great. The smashed up fender is a nice touch and looks so realistic.

As always, you rust is superb.

Just an update on the yet to be named building. Iím leaning towards a place to distill spirits. A brick front has been applied to the building and the dormers have had clapboards added. The windows and doors have been installed. The stairs and a railing made of brass wire was also installed.







Dave laser cut a template for me to lay the wire into and hold while I soldered it. he made a left and right so I could solder the back side.



Jon Addisonís stone walls have been installed. On the tall side I added those rusty old anchor bolts.





An interior workshop photo was set in so their would be something to look at. I added LEDs to the upper floors for those night shots. Only the office staff will be working nights. This photo might have to be replaced with something more distillery purposed.

I remember this building.....and like it... ..the laser cut jig for the railing is great!

Noticed you used framed windows over the stone and brick... hey, if you can do it...then I can too!

But I have questions:

What brand/model brick sheet was used?

Mr Addisons' stone walls? Please elaborate.

I'm starting to get project-completion anxiety...what will I be able to follow once this is complete? It has been such a pleasure to watch come to life.
Cheers,
Dave

David, Yes we are soon going to be coming to an end. I have to finish the distillery, Dave is working on the scrap yard building, Tim is working on an overhead crane system for the scrap loading facility and Jim is puttering with some of the other buildings. Jim says he still would like to build another brick warehouse or two. Only smaller that the present one.

We had an open house at the Center last weekend for both Saturday and Sunday. We did the 2 days because we were featured on the local Fox TV's morning show. The host visits various business and presents four 3-4 minute spots and several 30 second teasers. We usually get blasted with new visitors. We also offered $2 off admission if you mentioned you heard it on "Charlie". We were slammed both days.

The kids were blown away with the interactive switching layout. Some adults had to give way for the kids. We had them as young as 3 operating the trains. Jim was the switchman from 11am to 2:30pm without a break. Way more popular than he ever imagined.
