Lee, I don’t have a Corgi Mack B. What color green are you using for REA trucks? The Atlantis cab looks small with the Lionel REA trailer, but both are supposed to be 1/48 scale.
Thanks for the tip on the HO decals. I think I’ll build the trailer full size to see how it looks on the Lionel piggyback flats. I’ll keep you posted-just put the order in!

Artie I used at the time odds n ends brand made by pactra I built that truck about 15 years ago you can’t buy it anymore I done think but I now use Krylon short cuts Hunter Green. You can get those Mack’s on eBay pretty cheap if you want.

Paul, great scene, but I think Joe might have had one to many to make it up the steps to the deck! Maybe they would hand him down a burger! LOL

Here you go guys. All I have for today!

Its from Menards and thats ok to me. I also got2 BNSF flatcars that they were loaded on. So as far as I think its a double win for me!

Mike. Thanks for sharing looks like you got a International lonestar on the layout now.

Western, one of the gals will most likely confiscate his keys, although it was a different world in '59...  Let's just say things were a little more loose...

Paul, let's say things were more relaxed... and NO PC..... There was plenty of DWIs, My sister and me just missed being clipped by a Hudson Hornet, driven by a WW2 Vet, that had one two many'...  We were playing in front of our house, at the bottom of the hill.  The Vet lost control coming down it.  My father was home and came to to see the upside down Hornet.  He started talking to the driver, and no police were called.  Two Vets reminiscing about the war.  The driver did get lectured about his behavior...  Then a wrecker was called....no questions asked, another Vet.. end of story'..

Lee, that sure is a sharp looking REA Trailer! But then again most of what you have on your layout looks great!

Shasta, Very nice! I think its a Chevy either way I sure hope it doesn't get high centered on the tracks and block traffic!

I was able to get some folks to come to town today!

I would love to find Diecast cars in 1/43 or 1/48 scale of the cars in the photo below. I've searched and searched on the internet but 1/43 and 1/48 are hard to find a good selection.



On the lift: '61 Chevy Impala SS 409 dual quad 4 speed. Under the lift: '61 Chevy Belair sedan, 283, 2 speed auto. On the right: '58 Chevy Impala Coupe 348 2 speed auto. On the left: '65 Chevy Impala SS 396 3 speed auto (Current engine 496 CI (stroked 454). I have found some '65 Impala's in 1/43, but they are Sedan's and not Coupe's or SS. :-( If anybody comes across any of these let me know. Obviously the specs don't need to match in the Diecast. :-)

Thanks, Scott

Both of the Chevrolets on and under the lift are 1962 models, not 1961.

Nice Mike, to see it starting to come to life'... I like your roads... Looking very good'...😊👌👍❤✔

Today, I was at a Tractor Supply store and saw some pretty cool model trucks, from 1/43 to what appeared to be about 1/48 scale. Really good prices on all of them:

I don't model modern times so I couldn't use them.

However, a good friend of mine in the hobby who also loves scale trucks isn't bound to a timeframe as I am, so I got these for him, as I'm heading his way soon:

I took this shot to compare them with known 1/43 scale stuff. His cutoff for scale is 1/50 and I'm pretty sure they're just a little bit larger scale than that, not bad especially for the price.

Lee,  If it is not too much trouble, what is the width of the Army truck? Thank you, John
