    A construction crew would first build the north/south roof on the right. Then the larger roof on the left. As for math, not my strong suit.

    Back in the 80s that was my dream car. Never had one. I was impressed by the heated seats. I presume the model is authentic in that regard?

    I agree about the couplers, especially for those who like to do ops. The European trains use either the Rapido couplers, bar couplings, or Fleischmann Profi couplers. The Profi couplings are an...

    Welcome, Brian! That sounds like a good way to start. A small layout is a great way to learn modeling techniques, have some buildings and scenery, and relax.

    Nice shot, Jim! Now that you posted it here, I remember seeing it in the other thread. I see what you mean by "baby $#it brown." Great description!

    Hey, Gang, we can give Jim a pass I think. I misunderstood his initial post, though my misunderstanding gave me food for thought. If I can't take a barb now and then, I shouldn't sling any.

    Well, Jim, you never mentioned that it was already painted (at least not in your first post). When someone mentions "start with a basic layer," it was natural to think you meant paint.

    For the paint, I would stick with an earth brown of some kind. At Lowe's or Ace or Home Depot there is always a shelf with returned mixes at half price or less. A quart should be more than enough...
