So, the wife got me this kit a couple of years ago. Thought I would take a break from auto building and try my hand, and mind at a diorama. The engine hoist and tool boxes are scratch built. Going to build a pair of ramps , an air hose real, just kind see where it takes me. Made my guys arms movable. As always input and comments welcomed.

Got some more done on my diorama pieces. Painted tool boxes and cherry picker. Made what is supposed to resemble a bench grinder. How many garages have we bean in that had a grinder mounted on a post welded to a car rim for the base? Still working on some other things to throw in the mix. the nova is a 15 year old build of one of my oldest Bro's buddies  1:1 from back in the early 70s. I have allot of fond memories of watching him and his high school pals wrenching on cars. Well thanks for lookin.

I'm working on my first also; a '40 Ford roundy-round car c. 1955, set on a section of dirt track with a bill-board and track fence behind.  'SPEED ON, BROTHER; HELL AIN'T HALF FULL' sponsored by Wicks RAMBLER Motors, Alturas, CA; 'Built for the human race'.  

Also working on one with cars from Leave it To Beaver and Father Know's Best sitcoms, c. 1963, also lunar rover (hemi-powered) that has busted its oil pan on a lunar rock... !  Photos when I can do 'em.
