    I'm back fellers. Been a busy bee again. I figured I'd share my progress with y'all. Ignore the red building. I kinda sorta put it in there to size up the space I have left. I actually have an unbuilt DPM building I'm going to throw in there. It'll be an easy build compared to the two structures I've built already.

    Hi Justin: The red building is also a DPM building. In fact, I've always liked the corner door effect. It would look a whole lot different if you used the dry brush method of applying some thined light grey to the brick areas to fill in the mortar lines. If you haven't done that before it's fairly easy. Don't apply much paint to a wide flat brush and just pass it back and forth over an area, brick surfaces and all. Then wait a little bit for the paint to start to dry and wipe off the surface of the bricks with a folded paper towel to help soak up any of the grey stain on the surface of the bricks. Even if you leave some of the bricks with grey on them they will just look like old bricks.

    It is said that the date was believed to be Friday the 13th. On 13 October 1307, Philip IV ordered the arrest of the entire order of Knights Templar in France, and had their possessions confiscated. This act served as one of several origins of the superstition which regards Friday the 13th as an unlucky day. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histor...nights_Templar

    Hey Chessie!

    Did you get the locomotive from Terry? He has the best running locomotives
    I'm wondering how you liked it?

    Nice work on the buildings!

    Good Friday the 13th Morning Everyone. 68° and clear right now. Expecting 92° for the high for a couple more days, then a major norther coming through after daybreak Sunday. Thanks Chet! It's good to be home after the trip; my bed, my bathroom, my PC instead of the wife's laptop, my kitchen and most importantly, the train shed. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy the adventure. Recapping, we headed to Gulf Shores AL for a four day stay on the Gulf Coast and we were met with a pseudo-hurricane when we arrived Saturday. They basically shut the town down for what amounted to 1.5" of rain and 40 mph winds; known as a minor thunderstorm back home on the plains of North Texas. There was a storm surge coupled with an almost full moon high tide that partially flooded some of the low lying areas of the island around the bayou. Fortunately nothing serious. Some minor power outages 60 miles away in Mobile AL and casino flooding in Biloxi MS. You know that if you build a casino within 100' of the coastline at 1.5' above sea level, flooding will occur! No Einstein needed here. Sadly upon our return home, I discovered that the neighbor's teenage daughter never fed our resident cats at all like she said she would, and 5/6 disappeared. Haven't had a chance to speak with her yet, but I do imagine that they all went to her house since that's where the parent cats all live anyway.
    Looking forward to getting back into modeling action later today, but will probably run a few trains first while I piece together the thought process.

    Going back a couple of days to comment on some posts that I missed commenting on while I was out of town.

    Curt - I think that you did an excellent job on the workbench and other castings. I like doing details a whole lot, even when no one but me knows that they are there.
    Louis - I liked that picture of the baseball diamond. I guess that "anybody" could own one!
    Eric - Thought about you and your home in Acworth. By Texas standards you would have been "close by" and I might have been able to convince the wife that we needed to stop by. By the way, have you heard from John (Beady)? He went AWOL about the time that we had the red page issue and hasn't been back. I do hope that all is OK; I liked him and his sense of humor. Is your Dad trying to get rid of you? lol
    Ken (D&J) - I too continue to pray for your granddaughter and the whole family. Unfortunately I suspect that there is more to this situation than any of us will know.
    Johnny - I had forgotten that you had posted last year about your wood shop. I hope that your latest works of art will be satisfying both to you and your eventual customers. Be Safe in the shop.
    Sherrel - Read the manual for the phone to find out how to resize pictures. Or just do as I do, I download everything from three different cameras, two tablets and my wife's cell phone into folders that I set up in the computer. I then use editing software, in my case "Microsoft Picture Manager", not "Photo Viewer", to edit any way that I want. I do a "Save As" so I do not lose the original which eventually makes it to an external hard drive for back-up.
    Justin - Your storefront row is coming along nicely. Don't worry about DPM kits being easy. Their detail really stands out if you put some time into painting them. Just don't rush it; there's no race to win here.

    All right now, some pictures from the vacation. These are all from the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola FL at NAS Pensacola. I wrote down what type of plane that all of these are, but I think the list is in a dumpster back in Gulf Shores because I cannot find it.

    Regarding downloading pictures. It appears that the limit on this forum is less than 2MB. The first one here is 1.93MB and it is also 3648 x 2736 pixels. The others I had to reduce because they were over 2MB. Now to see if they all show up on the forum when I hit reply.

    Later all. Everybody have a great day.

    Good morning everyone. 60 and partly cloudy here in SW MO - will be sunny and 85 later today. 85 in the middle of October?? Slight cool down coming next week.

    Willie - Glad you made it home without incident. Those photos look great! The crafts I make for the fair are just small knick-knack kinds of items, nothing big. I just enjoy working with wood and making things that others can enjoy.
    Ken - with others, I'm praying for your granddaughter.
    Justin - that town is coming along nicely! Reminds me that I've got to take some photos to post.

    Nothing to report from the train room today - seems we're getting home too late every evening, and what time I do have is spent in the wood shop or doing yardwork.

    Have a good day everyone.

    Good morning, y'all Happy Friday! 52°, breezy and cloudy. And yes, Friday the 13th did come on a Friday this month!

    Willie: Love those museum photos.

    I don't know if it's me, the forum, Win 10 or what, but of late, I have had entire posts disappear just prior to posting. I have had problems uploading photos, and cannot see photos in posts of others unless it click on a link. Some times, when I click on the link, I get a pop up asking if I'm sure I want to leave the page. Other times, the link opens without issue. Best of all, if I go into the forum without being logged in, I can read the posts, and see the photos displayed without issue. The only downside to that is that I cannot reply to someone's post. But otherwise, the forum display is like it used to be.

    Nationals failed in their quest for the NLCS. Will Dusty survive? Dem Bums are my last team....

    Stay safe, and enjoy your Friday.

    Friday morning. Weekend eve. Came into the office a little early as traffic was amazingly light today. Got the morning list of things to do published then went back out to get a couple dozen donuts for the office.
