Holy Sh*t Batman!!

That is some beautiful work.

Must be fun to work in a scale that uses big tools to do things.

Thanks guys!

Rick, cant wait to go home and watch that video! I'll have to look and see if there are any others or similar.

Jerry, I was thinking I need to invest in some "proper" sized tools.
Kinda silly cutting 1/8th or 1/4" material on 10" tools!

Preac makes or made a terrific miniature saw. They also had an equally good miniature drill press. I have the latter and bought it when one I got from Micro Mark proved to be junk. -- Russ

I finally watched the video Rick linked in an earlier post;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xpxjg34gJV0

You can also search YT for "California Narrow Gauge"
Thats what I did so I could watch it on the big TV.

I really enjoyed it!
Lots of good history and great images of a car being built and the shops.
I highly recommend it!

Thanks guys!

I'm still working on things here and there as well as waiting for parts.
I went ahead and started the siding.
Here is one end with the siding on.

Not much but it's going.........

Nice color, Marty., inside and out. How did you like using the Liquitex acrylic? Was it in jar or tube?
