IMG_8354Here is a '53 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible I picked up at Hobby Lobby on Saturday. It's already a selling at a premium on eBay. I paid $7.99. I saw a red on one eBay as well as the cream that I got. Slightly smaller than 1:43/1:50 but cool anyway. (I spent five minutes or better trying to find the scale on the package.) It's about the same size as my 1981 Cadillac Seville which is in the same color as the full sized one in my garage. (How cool is that?" Also pictured is the Lionel Barrel Loader I just finished. (I need to fabricate the missing ramp extension that was missing from the loose parts in the kit.) Rubbing Tuscan Red paint onto the "wood" makes it look a little more real. (I went ahead and used some plastic from a frozen food item I had used as a spray paint "touch up) container, then glued some card stock on the edges and a little paint. It doesn't look too bad for home made and twenty minutes work.)

IMG_7906 [2)IMG_7902I was going to add some shots of my full sized Seville but I "updated" Windows the other day and evidently, some things have "changed." Anyhow, my full sized one is the exact color combination of the model. Thanks to Rob, the PRR sign guy who helped me with the sign on the building.  As a side note, the nose of the "real" car is pointing to the roadbed of the PRR (Vandalia) RR tracks that remain. (About 75 feet away.) IMG_8357IMG_8358
