  • If you remember the old Scotty Mason podcast, here's where it was recorded:

    Jimmy D complained that his was not accessible, so I did a bit of research on ADA requirements.

    It was fun to rework the Tichy outhouse to make it both longer and enlarge the door.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the machine shop, I have one that I need to dig back out and finish.

      Always wondered where the Scotty Mason show was recorded. :-)

  • Ron nice list; you'll have fun doing it and we'll have fun watching your progress. Enjoy.

      • Ron,
        Nice list. I make lists that I forget, misplace, or follow out of order.

        • Ron,

          Getting up to date on your build thread. Great stuff and I love the tractor. Very nice and natural weathering on the detail parts also.

            • Well, it's been way to long since I posted here but I'm back at it and have some progress.

              Was able to finally add the belt to the drill press.

              The belt was made with vellum paper. Colouring is pan pastel (Burnt Sienna) applied with a make-up sponge and then a flat gloss was sprayed on top. I'm hoping that with this method there will be very little fading over time.

              Next up is the lighting to go inside the building.

              Stay tuned.

              • Ron the drill press looks great. Really like the way the coloring came out on the belt!
