Here are some views of the stages of elements made for Barry Franklin of Mercer Island, Washington. The water comes from a diversion gate to a flume above.

The O-scale Roundhouse is coming along. Those aluminum panels are sharp, I should have worn gloves. I used power grab adhesive caulking to adhere the panels to the plastic model super structure and then used clamps to press them flat as they dry, otherwise, they tended to pop out. These photos show the roof almost complete, but a row of roofing panels are not glued down yet. Weathering and "glass" for the windows are next.

Ahhhhh, finally finished painting all the "Fine Scale Miniatures" HO-scale parts for a customer. Disregard my "stained" fingernail, hee hee.
My corrugated tin roofing came out pretty good. Now to finish all the wood porch posts and window glass and add the finished detail parts.
Built another Stake Side Truck Kit in HO-scale for my Mercer Island, Wa. customer. This one is not at weathered as the last one I built.The plastic burr on the tires were sanded off and the main parts of the truck body have not been glued together yet in this photo, hence the seams. Its a Jordan Kit and it was fun to build.
