Carl thanks for checking in, and following along, these laser cut decks sure do look nice, quick and easy to use.

Michael, I usually cut individual boards from wooden coffee stirrers for my deck work, but these laser cut decks are a lot easier to use and do look 100% better as you see. Thanks for following along.

Small update; the chemical car tanks have been painted red, storage box was primed, frame painted black. And, channel irons have been glued into place, down onto the deck for the tanks to be mounted with straps and cheese blocks.

Louis, your on fire!
Spontaneous explosion of activity going on here!
Though it's still quiet as heck, back over at the portable barn build.
Looking good my friend!

Thank you all very much for checking in, and posting your comments. The Car barn build still needs the roof walk, ladders, hand rails and brake wheel attached along with a paint job, but for the biggest part of building it, it was finished.
Someday Greg I'll get a finished picture of it posted on that build thread.

A small update. I have 1-1 project going on at the moment, so modeling is slowing down. Here is just a picture to show progress has not stopped. The storage shed has been painted, Chemical car decking has been painted, and the tank top platforms have been made & painted as well. All parts waiting to be put together.

Louis,

Catching up with your progress again, has given me a few ideas to file for future use. I like the way your transformations work out and these cars are sure to be show winners once again. Looking superb, as usual.
