The Laboratory-The Setting Up!

Hey Gang!

Hikaru Nakashima is setting up his laboratory business in Johnston.  He has
worked for other companies but he relishes being able to own his lab and
work for himself.  As in most hospital, the lab, pharmacy and the morgue are
located in the basement.

Hikaru is meeting with Harold and going over the blueprints for the lab.  If this was a
sitcom, we would all be applauding as Harold enters.

Harold: OK! This is a pretty good space!

 I think I should be able to make this work for him.
Harold halls in his stuff and awaits Hikaru.
Hikaru: Hi, you must be Harold! I am Hikaru Nakashima
Harold: Who is that with you?  You can sit that right here so it will be in a safe
Harold: Well, you are a cutie!
Harold: What is your name?
Hikaru: This is my son Asas.  My wife is taking a test.  So he is with me for now.
I got the blueprints for the space. 
Harold: I will set up the table and we can take a look at them.
Hikaru:  I got this from the hospital's director.  I will needs some adds and I am
hoping to have everything finished in two months.  Does that sound do-able?
Harold: Well, I will need to hear what you want, look at the blueprints and let you know
how long it will take.
Hikaru: I am having a sink unit sent.   The receiving window should be on that wall.
Harold: What about the refrigerator?  It will need it own line and it should be on 
the line accessible to the emergency electrical line.  So if the place looses power 
the refrigeration will still be running. 

Hikaru: I think I want it here.  Oh...
I am waiting for the specks on a hood.  I think it will go here.  Meanwhile, Hanna
Hanna: Hi, I am here for the scion!
This is my cousin Hanna.
Harold: Nice to meet you!
Hikaru: Hanna, this is Harold Hill.
Hanna: Nice to meet you too!
Harold: See you later buddy!
Hey there cuz! Are you ready to go?  We are going to go get a milkshake!
Where are you going to be?  I will text Rie and tell her where to meet you!
I'll be at the fast food restaurant!  Rie texted me and told me she would meet
me there to pick up the baby.
Hikaru: OK, see you later!
Hanna: Bye guys!

A few weeks later and Harold is installing the floor for the lab. It is black and white
tile.  It is easy to clean.
Harold: The electrical lights and outlets are next.
WOW! Almost done.  The pharmacy will be next space to start.
Harold: I will need to locate the receiving window.  It was a last minute add. The
computer lines were added last week.
I think there need to be more outlets than ordered.  I will add them too.
I am ready for the building inspector.  He will be here for the first inspection.
A few weeks later, more of  equipment and supplies have started to arrive too!
 The lab is almost ready to open!
  The lab is almost ready to receive work.

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Playsets to Diorama

Hey Gang!

I purchased the science set even though I didn't like all the pink in the set!
As a person who works in the sciences, I know that there is just not much
pink to be found there.

The full set!

I could get the pieces of the background without tearing it. So I wasn't able to save that.
I do like the pieces! My dolls can always use and extra laptop. The test tube
holder the beakers and beakers and flasks are a nice touch,.

I have never seen a pink and green  Bunsen burner.

I also purchased the Our Generation Science set.  There were pieces in it that I thought
I could use that wasn't in the Barbie set! It was about $15 more than the Barbie set.
Here are the pieces that came with the set.  Some items aren't Barbie scale.  

What really grabbed my attention is the white rolling table!  I know it can be used for
so much.

I also like the skeleton!  It is a great scale!
From the front!
 From the back!
The tail bone!  Growing up there were always crazy saying about
the tail bone! Like sitting on cold steps... you could catch a cold in
your tail bone!  Not possible!

If you follow my blog, you might remember I found a  1/6 scale skeleton at a
thrift store last year.  It is a little different than this one.  I don't think my other
skeleton has a tail bone!  I might have do a head to head or would that be skull
to skull comparison.

The mitts, books, glasses and writing utensils are just too large to be used.
I think I will try to sell them to an American Girl owner for their doll. So if 
you are interested, let me know.

I debated the apron but decided to keep it!

While these items are a little large, I do think I can make it work!
I thought I could combine these sets to make the kind of lab I wanted.  The colors
of the sets being off, they don't really to good together as is. Sometimes,
on small things, you can change the color with a magic marker.  I can also use
paint that I have here it that doesn't work.  So let's try that!
 Painted the draws sliver!
 Then I did the stool but not the under side!
The burner stand was painted.
Along with the candle.
 Painted the shelf too!
This give the Barbie set a more unified look.
I painted the microscope on the Our Generations set!

I still figuring out the lab but I will show you what is happening with it soon.

OK, Thanks For Looking!
