  • Boy, how time flies. I've finally gotten back to this one. Don't know where Tim has been hiding, but I hope he knows I have not forgoten about his shop.

    Anyways, the gates are almost done and installed. They work pretty well.



    The dragster is done and placed in it's resting spot...





    And now I'm just adding some details...a place for Tim to rest his weary bones



    And I'm working on this bench...



    More to come...

    • Ken, I'd forgotten all about this one.

      Nice to see it pop up again.

      Some nice weathering and detailing going on.

      • Just read 16 pages of this thread.

        Many modeling tips included.

        Really like the finer touches, such as the padlock & handles.

        Thanks

        • After looking at all your Sundance pics, I thought I'd grab this one off the shelf. Thanks Rick!

          Thanks for your interest Mario. Hope everything is well.

          • Ken. All is good back here. I just pickup some more USA dollars for future trip to see you guys.

            So many great detailing ideas recently on the RRL. I will be glad when I finish building modules and getting on with detailing stuff that you and others are doing. It all takes time.

            thanks again....

            PS. You have some models in the background on one of your photos... Downtown Deco ???. Is there a thread for that build...

            • That's part of a 8' diorama I've been working on for years. Redbird Taxi on one end and Booty Corner on the other with the three Addam Avenue's, JJ Holenders, Gravely and a scratch built cafe in the middle.

              • Looks good Ken and the details make a big difference. :up: :up:

                Maybe this thread will bring Tim back to the forum as he has been very quiet for a while.

                • Thanks John. Trying my best to finish this one up.

                  I sent Tim a PM. Hopefully I'll get an answer back. Sure do miss his company.

                    Yeah, me too - hope he resurfaces soon.

                    Ken, your welding shop has turned out great, up to your usual fine standards!

                    • Being an old dragracer it looks like a old dragmaster chassie under the tarp could be worth big bucks depending whos it was .Tom

                      • Thanks Al. Tim's only about 4hrs down the road. Maybe I need to go knock on his door


                        Well Tom, Tim didn't have much luck with his racing career. That's why it's under the tarp. You see, his reflexes are sort of slow. Too many welding fumes I guess...

                        • Ken, thanks for posting these pictures. It's really a very nice model, and rediscovering it after this long gap helps to watch it again with a fresh mind. Beautiful!

                            • Hi Ken,

                              Wow the structure and details look sharp. Glad to see it back on the bench. That front sign displaying 6:00 am as opening time....holy smolie Ken[:-sleep] I am still sleeping then.

                              No doubt about the fumes, they can make a guy a bit[:-drunk]

                              I did post a photo of a hornets nest in the wildlife thread, its been so long I had to figure out how to post pictures again. :erm:

                              Keep up the good work, I hopefully will be checking in more now that fall has arrived. :up:

                                There is a cot in the shop. I know you'll need to nap now and then
