      Image result for Kellys on revere beach When is this going to show up ?

      Unfortunately, am modeling the Midwest area..   Most restaurants out here list ""Catfish"" under seafood...

       

      I really don't think they have a clue....   But numerous stops at Kelly's is always on my schedule when I am back home....

    • Yeah, the Russian Orthodox Church here would be a build challenge...if I had the room for it, or the skills to do it justice. 

       

      Apart from false fronts and very small structures, I'm about out of space...

      Dad tell mom to check out "Joe Mural" on youtube and good luck!

      I still want the $20 you owe me and then some.......

       

         Andy, tell him you're putting the $20 in the collection plate. That'll shut him up.

       

         And here's Mural Joe painting clouds on the ceiling of St. Peter Catholic Church in Richmond, Virginia. I've seen some of his videos and Joe is freaking awesome (and the priest is this video is unbelievably young!! holy smokes!!). When I was in Las Vegas we saw the Venetian hotel with the clouds on the ceiling there, and they were good, but this guy is better.

      Colorado Model Structures...got a pile of those myself...

       

         Hiya Tim. I think you have a structure there in Kenai that would make a great Challenge build! If you want to join, I'm sure Dave'll make an exception for time zone differences and elevation changes to let you enter! Or maybe today's the last day for entering, I don't know.

       

         I want to go to Alaska so bad some day.

    • Nice work Mom !!

      You must have quite a collection of coloring books and crayons to keep dad occupied while you do all that fantastic work!!  Not to mention doing it with one eye as I bet your other eye is watching him the entire time making sure he isn't eating crayons or licking the pages.

      Glad to see you posted these pictures on LSC.  Great look!

      He don't know how to post anywhere else. Besides he don't even know how to use his own account.

      Jon,

      looking good. before you go to much further did you think to stuff some insulation in that draft?

       

      Think about it; yes. Actually do something; no. The flat plywood face is all screwed on to allow opening and access to the space if needed.  There is a lot of volume back there, so filling it would not be an economical option and may not even help much since the wall to the right is just a single layer of paneling with no insulation behind. I think the best plan is to squirt some great stuff in the cracks to close it off completely.

      for some reason I am not seeing you last picture with track diagram, will look again tomorrow.

      Not sure why that is. None of my pictures are hosted on a secure (https) site, but I haven't had any problems. My host might have had a hiccup when you tried to view.

    • Good work, Jon. You have reclaimed what was useless space. Well done.

    • Nice work, Jon.  I truly admire your use of the space you have.

    • And playing around with track I came up with this...

        Now I need  brass or stainless Code 332 19.5 degree crossing. That will be fun to find.

    • You done good Jon

    • January 12, 2019 8:18 PM EST
    • Well, that looks like it should keep you occupied for a few minutes. Simple, but effective.

      Now watch the car go back and forth, back and forth, back..................

    • Cool......

    • If I can make the video work, here is a test run.  No need for padding etc at the end of the box. It is just enough up grade inside the box to stop a car rolling from a few feet away...

    • Not exactly stilts - more like big honkin' legs!!!

       

      And wobbly it might have been, but I prepared for the uneven concrete by cutting the legs just a little short so I could shim to perfect height...

       

      Once leg adjustments were complete, I added some 2x3 framing as a place to attach to the stairs...

       

      And done...

       

       

      I'm now ready to switch to the finish face for this spot - my Mik Challenge build.

    • I kinda like all that blocking and bracing, Jon...   Stilts will probably make it trip and fall...   hehehe      

       

      Oh, did I forget to say ""nice progress""...

    • Too soon old, too late smart   Painting & final assembly done. Today it gets stilts and the balance of the opening sealed up. This is a huge draft source on a cold night!
