Thanks Karl for your input, and I believe I'll go with the red scheme than.

Hi Carl, Here is a link of the booth I built for myself; http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=40818&whichpage=1
I use all kinds of clamps, alligator clips on bases, and wooded dowels with double sided tape for holding the items needed to be painted. Also, have wooden blocks with tracks mounted on them. You never have enough styles of holding items for painting use.

Louis,

I've been looking for something like your paint booth. I love it. It's the ideal size. Oh man, another project added to the never ending project list. Thanks for making me aware of the post.

The frame, water tank and top platform are ready for putting together. I used Barn Red on the decking and black for the metal framework. Once together I need to put on the tank straps and cheese blocks. Then mount the top platform stanchions, rails and ladders.

So are you leaving the space under the tank open or are you filling it in? The curious want to know ! Looking good so far.

The space is filled in. The black center sill of the frame picture below shows it level with the Barn Red decking at both ends.

Finishing off this year with my progress on this Fire Fighting water car. The tank was placed onto the frame, and mounted on top of Evergreen #263 Channel at both ends, mounting straps at both ends were made using Evergreen #102 .010 x .040 strip styrene. And the cheese blocks were made from Evergreen #144 .040 x .080 strip styrene, and placed at the four corners of the channel base holding down the tank by the tank straps. (See picture below).
These Roundhouse 3 in 1 Fire Fighting kits have been built many different ways as found by research. The one that suits my fancy is shown in the second picture, (right side) below. The way this modeler mounted his stanchions, railings, platform supports, and ladders at both ends is what I am looking to do with mine. So until then, I leave you with this step in my progress.

Nice job on those tank supports and straps. Details like that are a pain to get consistent at times.

I like the picture of that finished tank car too!
