Wow, it's only 7:16 in the morning and just typing this, I'm sweating... It's hot and humid, very humid here in the Midwest. This weekend throughout the country, will be a heat wave. So what better way to beat the heat than to stay indoors and work on some model railroad projects. I have a very busy weekend ahead of me. Recent events have forced me to be away the following weekends before the prototype meet in St. Louis next month, so my loving wife to be, Angela is giving me an entire weekend to be left alone so I can get a lot done on my modules. I knew there was a reason I should marry her. Module 057 by Jim Wiggin posted Jul 22, 2016 at 7:13 AM During the week, I installed a tile floor, walls and doors into my Butler office building. I'm not going super scale here but since the building is so close to everyone's eyes, I wanted to at least get a floor plan with walls to eliminate the hollow building look. Module 058 by Jim Wiggin posted Jul 22, 2016 at 7:13 AM The other night I tried Tru-Color's brick and was extremely pleased with the results. I need to make some mortar wash for the exterior, paint the window and door frames, finish the roof and paint it then paint the interior before calling it good enough for the layout. The modules will need a laundry list of items done before weekends end. Mainly fix up and re-paint the concrete area where the rail is embedded, fix one sticky turnout, install a new switch machine, fix another, static grass application, well you get the point. So I'm hoping for a quiet weekend where I can get as much as I can done and ready for the show because when I return, I will only have four days to prepare. So how about you? What do you have in the works for this weekend? Let us know with an image or two. We'll come back on Monday the 25th and see how we all did. Until then, have a great and productive weekend, stay cool and... High Greens!
