    Greg - There is a pad under the frame but not Masonite. Some sort of a hard fuzzy material mounted on a hard block. ?????

    I think that material is the same as what was once used for ink erasers.
    You're never too old to do something stupid.

    Feels like some kind of cloth.

    Don't know what firehouse items you are looking for but there should be some firetrucks and firefighter figure available.
    For what it's worth, all you really need is a photograph of the side and back walls surrounding the open bay door. like in making a shadow box. That takes of the visible through the door view. Pretty much any firetruck in the adjacent bay will fill that space. Athearn, makes decent Ford fire trucks and squad wagons covering the era from 1968 through 2000. The B cab Macks date from the late 1940s through the 1980s. Busch and Sylvan make American la France, and Seagrave, Walthers sells modern style generic trucks.

    If you want to detail the second floor, you need a kitchen, dormitory, Lockers, and closets, and don't forget the brass pole using brass stock or even a thin plastic straw, painted brass color. Wander over to your local fire station, and ask them if you can take a few pictures.

    JOE -- Do you know where that photo was taken? Very awesome bridge in the background!
    That style truck is really all we need around here.

    We have one of those long trailer models (with the driver in back) that goes around town two-three times a week blocking traffic!
    Waste of taxpayer money in my book. There are not more than a half dozen buildings above 3 stories tall within 50 miles.

    Afternoon All,

    Had a bunch of errands today and after that I started some building planning. I think I am going to use brick sheets from Monster Modelworks for the build but I haven't decided for sure yet. I have lots of time to plan since I won't start building until April, since my discretionary funds are going to be tied up for our vacation in the middle of March. Tomorrow I'm driving up to see Jon and Phil.

    Garry- Thank you.

    Joe- Thank you. The kit paperwork states the tower is at East Deerfied, MA. The paperwork also states that there are 3 other similar towers but not their location.

    Sherrel- That's pretty funny.

    Terry- Great job on the sound.

    Karl- Ouch.

    Chet- Nice rail shot. I bit the bullet several years ago and purchased the brass CMX cleaning tank car. It does a really nice job.

    I hope everyone has a good night.

    Eric ... I donít understand evil. It has been three weeks since the school shooting 25 miles from here. Nobody knows what possessed that killer.

    Sherrel. ... my newest iPhone can take some clear pictures. That is mostly what I am using recently. I have 10 year old Nikon digital camera which I now use less often .... thanks for commenting

    Unbelievable prescription cost!!!
    Went to get my rxs picked up. Zofran was going to cost me over $300. No way!
    God have mercy. I'll do without and just keep puking. I did get the compazine however so that will help.
