Today is a sad day here in the Shannon Car Shops. Midget, my dog, companion and little girl has passed away. She was over 17 1/2 years old, and she was my buddy for over 17 years. Those of you who have truly loved a pet will understand.
I bent up a few more stake pockets for my flat cars, but most of my modeling time, since the gas station build, has been spent doing forum posts on how I made my own windows
and my metal roof.
Since moving over to LargescaleCental, I have a whole new audience for my work. Since they haven't seen my previous how to articles, they don't know some of my tricks. So after several requests, I explained in the forums, how I did those items.
I would have made the links live, but for some reason the blog software isn't working properly tonight.
The build of the gas station is finished. I just need a few signs, and some better red paint for the thing. The left over red paint doesn't cover well, well, that's why it was left over. Sorry I haven't been posing here as the build goes, but it was a hectic build at the end. There was a deadline to enter the build contest, and I got it done just in the nick of time.
Now I can get back to my flat car project.
The gas station is progressing. Today I finally got to the point where I am roofing the thing.
Of course I had to finish the structure before I could begin roofing.
The gas station is progressing. I was still fighting my cold this past week, so things still aren't progressing as fast as I would like. But the windows and doors are all trimmed out and the walls are assembled.
