OK, this thread has been so much fun to read and look at, that I had to go dig out my stash of what I call my "Diorama Junk" and take some pictures... Here we go...

First up is furniture & appliance pieces, and a Bar-B-Q with gas tank that I've been accumulating for an imagined Moving Truck load. I planned on building the Ford Louisville Truck but have just not gotten around to it yet...

Posted Image


Next picture shows all the appliances with their respective doors open... The painted resin 1/25 scale woman is in the picture to show the size of the items...


Posted Image


Next are a briefcase, suitcase, large mouse figure, bowling bag, hat box, violin case, & guns.


Posted Image


Next are Gangster figures, whiskey bottles in boxes, cans, barrels, jugs, steins & more guns...

Posted Image


Next up is a wooden table with a "Babe", a box of tissues, a case of beer & some bourbon (She's ready to party...!!!), some assorted gas cans, a box, a hand truck, a winch, a vise, a pair of bolt cutters, a floor jack and an anvil on a wood log that I didn't glue together..


Posted Image


Now this is a small toy set of gas pumps that is close to 1/25 scale, but will probably need some work to look more realistic...


Posted Image


This is a Coke Machine from a '50 Chevy Pickup, and a Camper insert for the back of a pickup truck... I don't remember where I got that from, and I don't know when I'll use it...

Posted Image


Finally, this is a set of 1/24 scale, diecast garage diorama accessories that I've had for years. There is a small & large tool chest, a stand up compressor, welding tanks, an arc welder, a battery charger with battery and an engine stand. I have one of the Fujimi Garage 3/4 buildings, and a Joe's Garage Diorama kit that I've been wanting to put all this stuff in...... Whenever I get around to working on that large of a diorama.... Something that big would be a pain to store and keep the dust off down in my basement model area.

Rich & Ron, those things are amazing!

Ron, looks like you haven't missed a thing. That's about as much of the kit supplied stuff as you could expect to find over the course of pooling through kits and vendor tables. Great variety, those are classic!

Rich, you're showing stuff I never even knew existed and the finished items look fantastic. Now I know who to contact for leads on where to get G scale items. I'm glad you showed those, I had no idea. Cute little 12-pack too.

Buick used elephants in advertising in the '60's(?),I guess to symbolize their cars were big and powerful. "Elephant ears" were bumper guards that went on the outer corners of the bumpers and looked like...yep,you guessed it.

AMT's 62 Buick:

Telephone

Did you notice the telephone with the Buick parts? Back in the day we thought that it was "cute." Now it's a multi-BILLION dollar business. I guess I missed the boat on that one.

One of the old Monogram dragster kits also had a Christmas Tree Starting light. I think it was the Snake, Mongoose kits.

 

Also there was a 2 wheel trailer like a small U-Haul open trailer that came with the 62 Chevy Wagon, and later re-released.

The MPC Display Case trailer came with a small movable Compressor (handle & wheels)

a few tools, Oil cans, a drum, gas cans, etc. (And the Cabinet for the front)

Hope they re-issue that again soon, though I already have 2 of them!

The Chrysler Imperial Roadster in the Gangbuster's series also had a Safe, and two briefcase/Suitcases.

One with Cash in it, the other with a clear insert of Jewels.

Ma Barker's Tour had some of those too.

I don't know if the 2 different Lincoln's had different or same Gangster parts.

The Camper is from AMT but they did the 65 no 66 El Camino. It actually was in an Early or Original issue of the 59 El Camino

 

The Trophy cars are in MANY AMT kits., though the 57 Chevy only came in the Older issues of the 57 Chevy

and the same for the 57 Ford.

 

The Stylized Fastback & 32 Fords were in Several kits.

 

The Chrome Trophy tree in the Avanti was first offered in AMT's "Customizing Series" kits.

66 Wildcat, 50 Ford Convert, 66 T-Bird, 49 Merc.

It always had the Vette, stantions, & Easel/dislpay sign. I have several of that chrome tree

 

The 50 Ford Convert had the 4 Cinder blocks, both the 49 Merc & 58 Impala kits had the chrome crankshaft & pistons

 

I have the Touch Tone Terror Phone Booth. The rack is in the built pickup. just not painted.

Booth is with my Resin 58 EDSEL Villager.

 

As for AMT's 61 & 62 Buick Special Wagons kits, The only real difference in the 2 are the grill update, & boxart.

Interior, accessories, etc are identical. I have versions of both.

 

Gunze Sangyo added Figures & accessories to their 50's-60's American classics.

I have the 59 Impala & Cadillac Deluxe kits. The each have 4 figures, and the same CHROME 

extra's including a Pay-phone.

 

If I can be awake during Daylight hours I will dig out ALL the accessories I have and take pic's

I will also get the Gunze kits out.

Some of the stuff Ive collected over the years, My favorite has to be the work bench, I have no clue where it came from...any clues?....it did have a spotlight moulded to the top, and it looked very unrealistic so I shaved it off. My plans are to include it in my MRC Texaco station.  I also really like the face mask.... dont know where this came from either.

One (the one on the right)is a face mask of some kind. The other two are from a kit that had something to do with rally racing ,they have stop watch faces on the top.
