1940s Ford by dal-designs
1940s Ford
Spotted at the local TSC.  I didn't get to talk to the owner, but I am guessing this is a late '40s to early '50s model

C-Store Site Build by dal-designs
C-Store Site Build
I've been working on this model for the last three days now at work- a conceptual model of a proposed convenience store with truck fueling and a car wash.  It needs tweaking -the compactor and sump enclosures aren't exactly right.  The parapets on the roof of the main building aren't right either.  But so far I'm very pleased with the result.  We'll see if upper management (the owner, presidents, and VP) like it too.

Next I'll be building a model of the inside of the store, complete with equipment.  I'm hoping that will go faster since I have been accumulating models for the last couple of months and hopefully won't have to build nearly as much from scratch using the AutoCAD drawings.

AutoCAD 2014 and Sketchup Pro 2013.  Time: about 24 hours, including time spent on creating proprietary models.
Oblique Floor Plan by dal-designs
Oblique Floor Plan
A builder I work with often asked me to do a small Sketchup model of a project of his.  The client is remodeling the garage into a new master suite and utility room, but they were having trouble visualizing what the changes would look like.  Hopefully this will help them see what the final product will be like.  I hope they don't mind that I made the interior walls transparent for clarity.

Sketchup 2013 and AutoCAD 2014. Time: about 6 hours (including finding the appliances on the 3D Warehouse and custom-sketching the cabinets and shower).
Let's see how many of my watchers are actually watching.

Beatles or Rolling Stones? And which song is your favorite?

Me, I really can't choose.  But my favorite Beatles song is 

and my favorite Stones song is

Aside from that, I've been a soldier, a waiter, a surveyor, a GIS technician, and a grocery store cashier.
