Back again for another Wednesday. These work-from-home weeks just seem to fly by, even though I made it into the office one day this week. This week's offerings from the workbench: With the layout stowed, and plenty tired of the structure building marathon, I turned my attention to the 20 work-in-progress car and locomotive projects sitting in boxes around the workbench. One project is to decal (K4-Decal sets) up some single sheath boxcars for the Frisco fleet. I had discussed this project a while back with Gary @gna . I am using his recommendations to add straight beam frames to these Accurail cars. Using some evergreen 1/8th inch channel to make straight frames (white in picture), and some Tichy brake rigging details, these can make some nice cars in the 16XXXX series as reasonable stand-ins. They don't have the corner brace details, but hey pretty close to the diagram from frisco.org collections. Also making a wood-end 40-ft car from the 12XXXX series from the Accurail fishbelly car. I hope if I spray some gloss coat on the inside, those sides will straighten out. I also got in this tool for grab-irons from Micro-Mark. They had it on sale and I have been thinking about one for a while to make caboose braces, etc. when you need longer thin-wire details. Going to work up a couple more "Muley" caboose models and let you know how it works. Finally, I have just about completed the second row of shelves/cubbies for various model supplies. This shelf is opposite my workbench. Going to make a small chest of drawers where those plastic ones are sitting, and then decide on painting (or not). Well, that's the news from San Antonio. I hope you are all doing well. Take Care Frisco Friends. -Bob T.
