April 24, 2017
: I have declared victory on the painting phase of one of the three PRR GLa hopper cars. The other two are getting there as well. I have cut up one sheet of plywood for the framework pieces of the diorama's sections. Also shown in the photo are the stack of ceiling tiles, and the full sheet of Masonite board. The other plywood sheet is at the tablesaw, getting ready to be cut up for the sub-roadbed pieces.
