  1. I like where you're going with this project. Will the dome shell get a glass resin overcoat? Its looking good Carl
  2. this is part of my collection in a couple display cases. I mounted them on wheels so they are a bit mobile Carl
  3. Excellent job. Always like to see construction models. a real nice work of art Carl
  4. well done Pat. beautiful work of art. I have enjoyed watching this build come together. carl
  5. Like Ellen, I name all my dioramas. But there won't be anymore pics thanks to the greedy clowns a PB Carl
  6. Very nice job of scratch building. Good looking Field Boss. Are you planning to build any attachments for your tractor? Carl
  7. Great looking gas wagon, Pat. As I remember back in the day, gas trucks had a grounding chain dragging along under the rear bumper. I'm not sure when that practice ended. Carl
  8. 12 foot ceilings are quite common is garages especially if you plan to install a floor hoist. You could always install roof trusses on 4' centres to fill up some of the unused space. It is a useful looking box Carl
  9. I've built a couple winter dioramas and have used Styrofoam boards for the snow banks. The blue extruded stuff for flat areas and the white bead board for banks and lumpy areas. I used drywall compound and Woodland Scenics flex-paste to smooth things out. The white beadboard should work well for the roadside banks in your dio. Carl
  10. Great looking shunt truck. It kind of looks like an airport tugger. Carl
  11. I use plastic knitting needles for shafts and rods, They machine well and work with styrene glues. In Canada they are sized in millimeters I'm not sure how they are sized in the States. 5/16th = 7.91 mm therefore an 8mm needle would be the equivalent size. Carl
  12. That's the one . He's an albino less than acurate weather forcasting ground hog. Any excuse for a mid-winter party Carl
  13. Nice job of scratch building. Ag models are few and far between in 1/24th scale. Where did you source your tires? Carl
  14. Not up here, Wiarton Willie saw no shadow (snowing too hard). So we'll only have a month and a half more winter, followed by another month of not quite spring yet. Carl
