    Chet & Curt: The structure is plastic, Walthers modules, molded in a light sand color, I did the usual pre-wash with dawn and warm water, then air dried it. Not my first paint job, so it's got to be the paint. I'm going to look for the Tamika. Alternative is to thin this stuff by 50% and shoot it.

    Sherrel: Neat headline. Remember, the discomfort and pain will pass, hope you feel better soon.

    Good morning Everybody!

    Wow, no way I can catch up with everything I have missed. I took advantage in the break of high heat and humidity to work as much as possible. I worked myself into being tired enough to stay home today as planed because the heat and humidity have returned. I'll be back to evening only work this week.

    Curt I wish I could deliver your package, but you probably already got it and I doubt it would have been routed through my station. I did deliver a package to northern VA once. It had been mistakenly sent too our station and the customer called Amazon to say they needed it by 9pm as promised. Amazon asked me if I could get it to them by 9pm, I said "of course, but how much will you pay?" they offered me 6 hours and I accepted. Two and a half hours latter I was home with my feet up watching a ball game. I wonder how much they would pay me to take a package to Florida?

    Chet that is another great photo, made me think of Halloween.

    Sherrel you will know the story sticks when the plea bargaining begins.

    I'm sorry to hear about your bad days, but look on the bright side; you are having some good days, they could be all bad. Soon the tide will turn and you will be back to normal, God be with you my friend.

    Karl your cabinet looks fantastic! The grocery story I shop at every Sunday morning with my Mom changed all their point of sale (POS) shelves over to LED lighting and they look great too. The assistant manager told me it increased their POS sales from the first day. It's obviously visually appealing to many. Who knew Hershey bars could be even more tempting?

    Boris I'm sure you are as frustrated as I am with our birds, it was a very tough weekend. I am even more frustrated with MASN's annalist Rick Dempsey and TV announcer Gary Thorn. They were accusing some of the Orioles of not playing hard. Worst yet they did not mention any names casting a shadow over the entire team. It's the biggest load of horse crap I have heard yet. It came after Sunday's game. How can you play hard when you can't get a pitch to hit and your watching the other team hit balls out of the park and all over the yard. it was not the Orioles effort, the Cubs new pitcher dominated them. As I said I am frustrated but you can't make up stuff and point fingers, it is what it is. Good pitching beats good hitting every time.

    The fact is if Britton was healthy we would be a 500 team and still in the hunt. We are 9 games back and the it's no coincidence the bullpen has blown 9 saves. Injuries are a part of the game and replacing one of the top closers in the game is no easy task. Add to that the starters have been the worst in baseball and it's amazing the birds have done as well as they have.

    Dempsey was a great defender, but a lifetime 233 hitter with almost 200 more strikeouts then walks, obviously he knows nothing about hitting. Gary Thorn should stick to calling the games and he is not very good at that! That is why I prefer to listen to the radio.

    Talk radio is saying rebuild, be big sellers at the trade deadline. I disagree, I would not be a buyer, the only deal I would look to make is to trade Castillo, not because he is not good, but because we have lots of depth in the minor leagues at catcher and maybe we can get another young pitcher or two. We can still make a run this year, but only if the starters can turn things around.

    That is it for me for now, sorry I can't comment on all the other great posts.

    I should have said good evening. I started the previous post this morning but did not have time to finish.

    Chet I like the last phot too, but the one I referred to was the one before this last one.

    Finally, a Walthers kit who's instruction were actually decent!!!!!
    Anyway, the final thing to this kit is adding a lighting kit from Viessmann.
    I'd never head of them before so I did some looking around starting with the power supply mentioned in the lighting kit's instruction (but not included) .
    It's the Viessmann 5215 Power Module.

    Has anyone had any experience with them and what do you think of their stuff.
    You all know I love adding lighting to my buildings.
    I haven't done any of that because I don't have of those materials here with me - yet.
    Let me know what "you'ns" think.
    E.

    Eric - OK, I remembered (I think) the manufacturer that makes the kits for Walther's with the lighting and well-written instructions. I believe it is Heljan, from Denmark. I have made several of them. I am intrigued by Curt's suggestion of running the lights from the track power buss, never thought of it before. I cannot do that because I use DC and not DCC. You can use an old Tyco of Lifelike transformer to power the lighting buss. You can use either the DC or AC terminals for lights. The Visemann specifies between 14 and 24 volts, AC or DC (lights don't care) and the 17v provided by one of these old transformers does the trick. I noticed that Curt specified using a resistor which would be unnecessary with the transformer.
    Hope that this helps you make a decision and save some $$$.

    Sure you don't mean Viessmann or Kibri?

    I'm into building something else now from Intermountain.
    What the hell!!!
    "Step 2. Trucks & Couplers
    Carefully cut all sideframes and bolsters from sprues, Press sideframe pin into hole at end of bolster until you feel a snap. Sideframe is then locked in place. Repeat for other sideframes."

    What the hell sideframes and bolsters are they talking about??????
    I wouldn't know either one from a hole in the ground!!!

    Good evening, y'all. 73 and sticky. It's summertime at the Jersey Shore!

    Louis: O's 3-1 over Texas, Bleier the win, Brach the save. Tillman, 6 innings, 95 pitches, 1 Run allowed, 3 Ks. Smith HR. Machado, 3 for 3.

    I watched the Nats win this afternoon (6-1), on MLB Net, (MASN DC).

    Talk is O's sell, some fan talk sending Britton to DC for prospects. Most O's fans blame Peter Angelos for the mess, and they may be right. Not 4 Nothing, I didn't watch any games Sunday, but the box score wasn't pretty. One name stood out to me, Ubaldo... the rest of the bunch wasn't much better. The cubs couldn't even beat the Mets! At. best, the O's need a new pitching coach, an new hitting coach, and a starter. They need to unload some garbage contracts, and under achievers. What's Chris Davis done all season? Trumbo? Castillo? Machado's hitting ability has gone into hiding, although his fielding is top notch. Tillman? Perhaps he came back too soon, He may as well stayed out for the season. A complete rebuild, isn't necessary, but a new direction is. Buck looks shell shocked every time the camera pans on him... Tonight was better, but has the horse left the barn?

    Obviously you are building trucks for equipment. The bolster on the model is the part the center pivot pin goes through. The sideframes are the pieces that attach to the bolster, and the axle/wheel assemblies ride in them.
    You're never too old to do something stupid.
