|Sunday Morning in the Display Room - Some displays have already been packed up|
You might think that four days of steel mill modeling would burn one out - actually the opposite. Seeing what others were up to is inspirational and I was back downstairs modeling Sunday afternoon. Also, having a nice organized basement for a change makes it a little faster finding materials needed. Although my cynical wife believes I will soon be back to my old cluttered ways. I didn't get a chance to clean my primary workbench off before the event and actually added some loose things I couldn't find a home for to the pile. After the tours, Jimmy informed me that my bench was a big photo op for my fellow modelers - how embarrassing. My two track main running through my basement stairs also was, but I stand proud of that bit of remodeling. Of course I did finish my cleanup Sunday, after the tours. I'll have to get to all my large structures quick, before I'm back to my 6"x6" modeling space.
