    Rick thanks. The SW details are getting pretty limited now; but I
    think I got my monies worth for sure.

    Dave thank you and thanks for stopping by.

    Jerry, Kyle, Mike, Ron, and Scott thank you so much for the kind words; they really mean a lot.

    Ron the link and pin couplers came from San Juan Details. Six, or 3 pairs, to a package. I used a short
    piece of florist's wire to hold the link in place.

    Nicely done on the tool car Larry.

    Just curious, who makes the link & pin couplers you used on the car?

    I managed to get in a couple hours at the bench today and finished up the tool car:

    The car measures a scale 14 ft. long and 6 ft. wide. All the wood was grained, colored, and weathered.

    The parts bin and barrels with stuff in them are from Rusty Rail and everything else is from Sierra West. All the detail parts are
    done with a combination of paint, chalks, blackening, and A&I. Also added aa rusted chain to hold the tanks in place and link with
    pin couplers on both ends. The barrels in the back legitimize the need for the hoist.

    Here is the front view with a couple of details under the scratch built bench. All in all it's a good sized car for the scene.

    Next up will be to paint the LP's., two of which are posable and the other two are standing. Plan on using them for a couple
    of cameo scenes and that will just about finish the Tractor Repair Shed. As always thanks for looking.
