Reply to "What did you do on your layout today?"

I started on this old Wabash Valley Models kit of a grain elevator...when l opened the box, l thought, "Uh-oh, another seller who doesn't know O from HO. " It was a box of 1/8" sticks, but the windows were O.  I measured out the plans, and, surprise!  They were O scale.  Kit was to be built model airplane style on waxed paper.  I enlarged dimensions slightly and, ignoring the 1/8" sticks provided, am building it with 1/4" sqare strips, readily available at home stores, and much sturdier for an O scale structure.  It was to be covered with metal corrugated siding, which does look HO, so l will use Evergreen siding.  I think l tracked down enough, today
