From “Fuel Service” to “MobilGas”

This is another Bar Mills kit, but I’ve had this one since the Truro show last fall.  I finally got around to assembling it.


(I wish I could crop – @#$#$% Photoshop!)

In case you were looking for something new, it’s the MobilGas billboard in front of the red (soon to be) tanks.  Although the parts were very tiny and breakable it was a very simple kit to assemble.  Now my generic “fuel service” business has an official name!

    Looking good! Photoshop not working, or you’re not quite sure how to do so?

    I’ve used Photoshop for years, since version 5. There are a lot of things I don’t know how to do in Photoshop, but cropping isn’t one of them.

    No matter what tool I select I only get the Hand Tool for moving the image around the screen.

    Now that would be annoying. Try this:

    Hold down Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences file. Say yes. Restart Photoshop.

    Thank you very much Michael – that worked!

    You can also try Picassa 2, free from Google. Very intuitive.
    Stevenville looks really good, Scott. I will have to stop at
    the movie house, haven’t seen The African Queen in a while!

    Michael’s reset preferences instructions for Photoshop worked so I’m back in business on that computer. I had the option to use the Photoshop that’s on my laptop, but couldn’t be bothered dragging it out of my case.

    I have not seen the African Queen. If you want to see it at the Loews Theater you’ll have to talk to Steve Martin and see what he does to “Get SMall” ;-)
