    Once again my skill, which I don’t have anyway, painting, failed me. But guess what I got really lucky and have extra pieces on the Walters Modern Gas Station sprue. So a picture of the mistake and a not perfect fix, but better than the bad paint job. And no I am not touching trying to put on more black paint, I'll just screw it up more, and you'll never see it in N Scale :) You ever had an Oops? Love the Britney Spears song too! But that's just me :)

    Once again, I suck at, and hate painting :)

    Does anyone else have or built this kit. I got so lucky it has extra parts as I screwed up painting the fuel pumps too, but there were like 5 extra's, same for some other parts, and some parts I can't even find in the instructions, like the part I am using to fix my bad side door paint job. And others I just can't figure out where they go and aren't in the instructions text or images of assembly? I know what thing I would recommend this kit for sure! Coolest kit I have ever put together for N Scale, and I haven't done many.

    That would be coffee :) Maybe that explains it? Nope, just not good at painting, scenery, wiring, etc... but I keep trying :) So in my mind it's a Men's an Women's restroom now, as I already applied the Restroom decal :) Talking about tiny!

    Restroom sign, couldn’t get it in focus. Also missed alignment of doors by a hair, but can’t see it normally I promise with a 1 million powered magnifying glass you can read RESTROOM :)

    Glass doors on a restroom?

    Never mind. I didn't ask.

    Their Black or tinted or whatever excuse I can come up with, but I do get your point. And if you want to get really picky, the frame is on the outside :) Don't think that would pass code? What was left on the sprue to cover up my mistake. No one will ever see them anyway. I knew better than to try and paint it, but did it anyway!

    I'd go with it's glass doors to a foyer for bathrooms with doors to the bathrooms themselves just inside :) I like the solution you came up with. (y)

    This is a glass enclosed toilet in Switzerland. The enclosure is a one-way mirror, reflecting from the outside and clear from the inside. I doubt if I could relax enough to be successful. :eek:

    I've seen many with milky or textured glass. You can see in or out but it allows light. So you can see what your doing.

    I have "Oops, I did it again!" moments quite regularly. (y) I model in cardstock so I can mess up in a different medium. :rolleyes:
