I had no idea that I talked to you on the Phone that your Talent went a lot further then I ever imagine!!all that Talent in just one Mans hands is Totally Mind Blowing.
You darn near blew me out of Socks! really your a better Artist then I thought.
Big or Small "U DA MAN" from top to bottom from side to side your Garage really looks like it's in the 1920's Fantastic Workmanship and I'd have to say Totally Priceless, it belongs in a Museum for all to see, and for all to look upon your Magnificient Work of Art, cause thats what I think of it.
I have just about everything that you've made thus far, and most likely I'll own even more of your Products in the furture.
I've been around for 72 years now, and I relly have to say that this Forum, makes an Old Man Happy to be Alive.
Thanks Danny, & thanks to the rest of you all for showing your builds, I look forward to seeing some brillant Builds.

..got started on the detail work for the '41 Plymouth. It's going to be poised having a brake shoe change. The front shoes have already been swapped out. To save money the mechanic used the old springs and hardware. I guess the owner is a money miser! The rears are next. The front spindle and rear axle shaft will be put on once I get them weathered. Still need to weather the car a little more with some dust and a bit of road grime. The plan is to have the wheels and tires, tools, old and new shoes and other detail items laying around the car also. More to come, thanks for looking in.........

..Vaughn, the brake shoe assemblies I make and sell on my web site and E-bay. They don't come with the springs but are not hard to make. I use .008 brass wire for the main return springs, .005 brass wire for the adjuster spring and .003 magnetic wire for the cable to the adjuster lever. I simply wrap the wire around different size piano wire then cut them to length.
The pin at the top of the assembly is a standard straight pin with the head filed flat. For new looking sets I just paint them, for weathered ones I use rust colored paints and powders. The over all dimensions are 25" long x 12" deep x 10" high. Here's a couple of pics of the brake assemblies.....

Now your Diorama, is really again a piece of Art.
What's so nice about it, is that it's your complete own mind in this work, it's not a copy of any one thing, it comes from your mind, thats the neat part, the Plymouth, well it would be juyt another Model except for the fact that you really brought it to life with your own Brake Assembles, it's not like another Garage or model out there in the World of Minature!
