Well after the slot shop the bench looked empty so I started this one. Getting it ready for the paint booth. Still have to add all of the windows, and doors yet. BTW this thing is huge.

Currently this is what is done.

First front, and rear shots.

Next is the floor bracing start, and the office mock up.

Then the 2nd floor.

I see that I have some repainting yet to do again, along with a lot of other things yet.

nope no layout. The flag pole is made of aluminum tubing in 1/8, 3/32, and 1/16 dia. I used a ball headed pin for the top, and beading wire for the cord. The flag decal is from Micro Scale.

Well I did get some model time in theis weekend. Here is what I got done today. The first pic is the before. Notice the walls are bare.

%5BIMG%5Dhttp://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a2/mercman51/Construction%20Zone/Fire%20Dept/Fire003_zps720641e0.jpg

I cut some brick sheet to fit them.

%5BIMG%5Dhttp://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a2/mercman51/Construction%20Zone/Fire%20Dept/911001_zps8289d182.jpg

Then added some more floor joists to support the 2nd floor.

May not be the most work done, but between cooking, and stuff I got a little done. Still have to work on the office area yet, and the stairway to the 2nd floor, and the pole.

This is really coming along great Junior. I hope you have lots of room in your town (basement?) for this, the truck dealership and the bus terminal. And then there's Mel's...... and what else?

The diorama is sweet, but I got a kick out of the title.

 

My baseball had a team party at one of the players house and one of the guys "butt dialed" 911. Cop showed up and asked who dialed 911 and he goes i butt dialed! I called back and told them it was a butt dial. It was pretty funny as no one was expecting a cop to show up!

Yeah and to think I got out of 1/25th because I got sick of detailing them!!!!!!!! This was easy for the office the one desk and table are kit items, the file cabinets are just pieces of plastic, and the console is a pic from Google, with a built base from Plastruc, and Evergreen.

The windows shown were done with scrap pieces of food storage bags. These are the ones you seal and vacuum pack.

I still have more details to add yet so stay tuned.
