    Karl I do enjoy adding the details to a scene; it makes it unique to my vision.

    Adding detail does keep changing the character of a scene. Can be as much work as building the rest of it all. It’s an area I’ve really neglected.

    Jerry thank you. It did help fill the modeling gap when I only had limited time at the bench.

    Philip thanks and for following along; it's much appreciated.

    Rick thank you. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to the layout soon.

    Larry, just walk away...lol. Projects like the tractor repair shed can keep pulling you back in.

    Love the detail around the dozer and scene. Looking forward to your layout work.

    Now that the forum is back up I thought I would post an update. After a summer of modeling, in between outside
    projects, I'm going to call the Tractor Repair Shed mostly done. I may add a few more details later on when the mood
    strikes me:

    The LP's are from Rusty Rail and finished off pretty well. The quality of the figures are decent and the price is reasonable. After
    painting each figure they were glued to a small thin piece of card stock then glued to the diorama. Then they were "dirted in" to blend
    them into the rest of the scenery.

    This figure had a posable arm which had a small piece of small brass rod to connect the arm to the body. After painting the
    figure was glued to the diorama in the same fashion as the others. Also you can see the hoses for the welding tanks which is
    draped over the tanks. Lastly I colored a wooden box with brown chalks and finished off a few tools to set in the box then glued
    it to the Crawler tread; you can't work without tools after all.

    Like I mentioned previously this is pretty well done. I would like to thank all you guys for your comments and inspiration who
    followed along on this build; it's very much appreciated.

    What's next? Now that the outside projects are done for this year it's time to return to the CC&W Railroad layout to finish up some
    scenery and possibly "upgrade" some of the buildings as well as maybe changing a few things around.

    Larry thank you and thanks for stopping by.

    Mike thanks. I figured the barrels gave a purpose for the hoist.

    Excellent job on the tool car, Larry.

    I can picture the barrels of junk being lifted out by the hoist. Nice touch.
