If it doesn't rain or freeze today, I'll pick up some pink foam on the way home and get started.

What program are you using to draw your buildings and your layout plan?

John,

I used xtrkcad to do the layout plan. I saved it as a bmp file and then I used Paint to color it in. I printed it full size on a plotter.

I did the buildings with an old CAD program I have called Drawing Board. It's just a basic CAD program.

The “PLAN” was to have all day to myself. That didn’t work out. But I did get a few things done.

 

I used Harold’s technique on the roundtable

 



 

 

And, I got started on a tank car.

Hey Bob ain't that the way it always goes?

I have been playing with Harolds technique also...how do you like it?

My first try I did not shake the bottle of Rit and got a purple color..oops...just a shake and went back over and it was fine....i think it's very interesting.

The tanker is looking great! :thumb:

Is that a pipe fitting of some kind?

Dave,

I like Harold's technique but the turntable still needs some work.

The tanker is a copper pipe fitting with some Grant line nuts and a piece from the casting box.
