Here is the beginnings of a small adobe saloon in 1:35 scale.

Making some progress.





Working on the windows, doors, and a sign.  The place needs a name.

Owner/operator is a saucy lass named Pepper Mcgillicuddy, who may or may not be related to the doctor of http://drmcgillicuddy.com/
Establishment's name is simply "Pepper's Place" or "Pepper's Palace".

Thanks for the suggestion.  I had a couple of names in mind but I'm always open to new ideas.

The vehicle is 1:34 scale 1937 Ford pickup.  Don't remember where I picked it up.  Maybe CVS or Walgreens?  I think I paid maybe $7.00 for it.  Close enough for 1/35 scale.  It pays to keep your eyes open for anything one might be able to use on their railroad.

Hi Michael :wave:


Yes indeed ! ... Eyes OPEN :shocked:


Does it have a brand-name on the bottom ?

Or do you know the brand ?


One you might like at 1:35, is the 'Matchbox Models Of Yesteryear' Ford-T.

They did a van-back, a pick-up, and a tanker.

Diecast, not hugely detailed, but the correct size & there seem to be a lot about, so very CHEAP. :bg:


That series of vehicles were strangely multi-scale.

So eg. a double decker bus fits in the same box as the Ford-T.

If you fancied a nice blue Riley sports-car in the same series, that is also 1:35


:moose:


Si.


I just did some 'hacking' on my Matchbox Ford-T tanker...

...pix soon in Mysterious Moose Mountain.

A possible cool railtruck bash !

It has 'SS 5607' on the bottom.  Also states '1/34 1937 Ford Pickup'.  Made in China of course.

I like those Matchbox Models of Yesteryear especially the tanker.  I can see customizing one.
