    I have no doubt that they had to lay off at least one shift at the brewery. Those poor construction crews are probably going through alcohol withdrawals after being deprived of their favorite beverage! Really, the beer is probably cleaner than the local water supply.

    Mooseworks working on some reefer rebuilds. One is an Orca Brewery Co. reefer and the other is a Fallen Apple Orchard reefer.

    Masking:

    Paint:

    Note: Used Scalecoat rattle cans, B&M Blue and Reefer Yellow. FYI: Moose finds Scalecoat spray paints to be far less than satisfactory, IMHO (in Moose's humble opinion).

    I'll get some kegs loaded up into reefers and send your way for the moose crew. I'll assign some guards to ride along on the train to keep them evil squirrels from hijacking the beer shipment.

    Moose used a few coats of Microscale MI-1 "Micro Set" followed by a few coats of Microscale MI-2 "Micro Sol". Moose also has used Solvaset, but didn't seem to need it this time...
