Saturday morning this week I got the gray spray paint can out and hit my 6 coil steel cradles with the paint. At the same time I also painted three of my scratchbuilt coil steel containers a gray colour as well.
Later in the afternoon I turned my attention to completing some of the 14 other Telegraph Poles started the previous week at Geoff's modelling night. Progress was very, very slow, as I cut off each insulator and dipped it in white glue and tried to attach it to the crossarm.
Back to modelling! This morning before I got stuck back into my insulator work, I went to SuperCheap Auto to pick up a spray can of light blue paint. This will be used on my next lot of Coil Steel Containers. I will put together a few more Coil Steel Containers this week and next week, after I get some more 0.080" x 0.080" styrene of which I have now run out of. Why do I always check on Sunday instead of Friday? If I had checked the styrene situation on Friday I could have gone to the local hobby shop on Saturday to pickup a packet - Hey Raymondo do you have one?
