Thanks guys!

Mike, it is HO scale. I scratch built the building out of plaster. I got the inspiration for the building from a picture that a friend of mine in Florida took. I thought it had a lot of character too.

I cut the letters on the front of the building out of styrene. The rest of the signs I created in Adobe Illustrator and printed them. They have a heavy coat of clear on them.

Most of the junk is stuff that I had left over from other projects. I used pieces of broken toys and stuff that I took apart and scavenged parts from. There's parts from a cd player, a vcr and other odds and ends. The majority of the cars are plastic cake decorations.

I made the rat rod from Jordan kits.

I took a lot of pictures while I was building. http://public.fotki.com/DaveInTheHat/davetown/davetown-salvage-company/
