    • OK, except for maybe a bit of weather on the wood, this truck is hereby done...



      And next to Mackenzie's Mercantile:



      Thanks for following along!


      Erp! Just realized I need to build the front bumper. That won't take much...

    • Starting to look like a truck. A few odds and ends, some more weathering, and then it will be time to add the wood back deck:

      He looks perplexed.


         He's mentioned lately that he's accustomed to communicating. His left hand is grabbing the leg of the guy behind him.

      Tired of cleaning up after his GOATS already... He lets them run rampant and that is NO way to run a mercantile ?? They all want to reside on my side anyway ....the video is proof that you need to clean up your side!

      well built!

      but with these two as neighbours...  you will need a sheriff's office and a Lawyer, or two, on the next block.

      No need for that ....I'll entertain his antics for awhile but if push comes to shove I'll just lite it up and burn down his side. There is a decent firewall between the two as codes require.

      Now that's funny. A KFC next door would keep Rooster in line...................;)

       I'm pretty sure THAT wouldn't work, either...

      Maybe something else?

      Marconi and Rooster are shrewd businessmen. I had to give them the first 6 months of rail service free.

      I have been looking at Colorado Model Structures, they seem to be fairly inexpensive compared to Pola and Piko , I am ordering some soon to see haw they are, but from the videos on their website the are pretty good

      We have quite a few of Colorado Model Structures on the Outside layout..   Jane paints them and puts them together..  To increase the weight and stability of the wall panels, she adds an inside wall of clear acrylic plastic that we buy at Home Depot..

      The acrylic we buy is used as window replacements for storm doors..  I believe it's like 0.93 thickness..  This acrylic plastic also creates the windows for the building..

      Thanks Boomer, I'm honored to be in that group.
