    Great exposure for Steve! My only wish is that Steve would have mentioned our forum. Great job, Steve!

    I never get tired of looking at Steve's models, seems every time I look at one I see something or a detail I hadn't noticed before.
    Great job Steve!
  4. Thanks for that Craig! I did not know it was out yet.

    Sorry Keith, trust me there was not much of a plan going in. It was just " start talking". I'll try to do better next time. I have a couple upcoming Craftsman articles that will come out and that should make up for it.

    Thank you Tom. Back at you! I look at yours and think " I need a layout" Glad you enjoy what I throw out. I have another big project going but sadly the MKT word again. :(
    But several smaller SLSF projects as well in the works.

    Thanks Steve,
    I have not ventured into any other scales than HO.. I try to keep my modeling efforts confined to something that I can run or be handled. But I gotta say, I need to learn how to do the "oil paints", I just need to get into it. But with a boxcar costing $50.00 bucks. Well, I just need to get over it, and certainly need to improve my observation and weathering skills. Between you, Jim James and a bunch of other folks, man I got a lot to learn, and thats a good thing.

  7. Thanks Ken!

    Tom, you will find the oils worth it in the end. I was very hesitant to try them and now for any weathering that is a must have. I use mainly just four colors. But they can be mixed and tinted with each to be endless colors. I also use cheap acrylics and pastels.
    If you have never checked out The Weathering Shop site or their public forum The Rust Bucket you should. It is 99% trains and all weathering. Some absolutely incredible artists there. Lots of how to's threads. Great stuff!!!!

    Wow, I am at a loss for words to compliment the level of detail and awesomeness in Steve's models. All of them are just as good as anybody could possibly do. I loved the images that went along and my favorite was the Katy caboose on the trailer. Now I know why Steve.s moniker is modeltruck shop !
  9. Thanks Paul. I appreciate it. I am not surprised the caboose on the hauler is your favorite. A familiar scene for you right? I have really enjoyed watching your 1:1 resto project on the caboose. I was stunned to see your car collection too. Great stuff there! I have an accumulation of various old trucks and can not imagine taking on a caboose. Thanks again,steve

  10. Kind of a surprise when I saw this today. I share progress pics with Ken but didn't know he was adding anything to the video this week. Add for the Athearn 3100 GP 50 appears too.

    I remember Steve, as a child, when we visited his family in Jackson, MI many years ago. Wow, are we getting old or what?
  12. HA, I remember that visit as well Doug! I remember your son had the Luke Skywalker land speeder toy I liked. I am guessing that was 1978 or 79?? I know I have gotten old, fat and bald for sure.
