this is top notch yard detailing. Great selection of yard vehicles, including 3 buses, a boat and a raft in the back of a 50's era ford pickup, really like that touch. Plus some  yard workers vehicles, crane.

This appears to be HO. ???     Who makes that basic building , as it has some interesting character.

The model A rat rod or old time hot rod coming over the hill is really well done.

question, how did you do the davetown salvage company wood looking sign.

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/
