Patrick, that is quite a collection of autos! They really help the scenes come to life! Great job!

Lee, wonderful looking truck and I am glad you and your dad were able to get it done together before he passed! I know he would be proud of you and how your caring on with your life!

Thanks Mike I had to sell it about 2 years  ago due to my physical health problems I could no longer keep it looking the way it should. I had the truck 19yrs it went to a very good home and is being well taken care of. That’s what my dad would have wanted me to do.

Hi guys...I can see by your postings over the last several days I've missed quite a lot...nothing new on my layout at the moment.  We had a death in the family a couple of weeks ago and just haven't had time to contribute here.

Lee, great layout scene with the UP rig and thanks for posting the DD direct e-mail.  I received the same one.  If I ever feel flushed with cash (not likely), I may purchase one of the "Olds" units.  I'm partial to the aqua and white two-tone.

Ted, you've had some great cars in the family back in the early days

Mike, great scene showing the street car show rally with you newly painted figures...you are definitely a skilled painter!  You're inspiring me to give the painting process a second try...

Artie, I love that "Sunoco" blue tanker...nice job on it...

Paul. Sorry for your loss and your family is in my prayers. Thanks for the complement on the layout. I’m like you I just can force my finger to press the buy it button on that green olds.

Thanks, Randy! It’s 3/16” Woodland Scenics foam roadbed, cut to 1” wide, painted Polly S concrete, and then marked into blocks with a fine point Sharpie. I simply cut the corners with an Exacto. The streets are 1/8” Masonite, so they worked out well. Here’s some better shots:F9C36C87-9961-47CF-A5D1-64BCBDEBD058E4ADAEDE-00A4-4A9E-8FD1-211939CCA3BA

Artie. Nice pics I like the Ice Cream truck and the traffic cop. Thanks for sharing the idea on your sidewalks

Couple cool buys/finds over the last 4 weeks I’ve been meaning to post but haven’t gotten around to it. So here we go!

First, I had gone through a Land River Phase- BIG TIME, in April. Mainly ended up focusing in on Corgis from the 60s. Really wanted a 1/43-1/50 Scale Defender But has a tough time landing one.  

Bought  a lot on eBay with 5 60s/70s Corgis. Three are in the pics below:

green Series 1 with whiz wheels. Also new is the Mustang convertible by New Ray

Corgi forward Control Jeep9B50DC7B-9DE9-4EB4-86EC-28F9591C47ED

found these and a red 58 Pontiac Bonneville at my pop’s over Easter. Love the billboards and facts that come with them! 888F9D77-156D-4431-B8DB-15441971A896
