That series of vehicles were strangely multi-scale.

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


They were intended to fit in same-size boxes for some reason I forgot.

I'm going to consider this project done.  I haven't built anything like this in years.  All I need are a few thirsty patrons. 











Since I'm holding Woodie responsible for getting me interested in 1:35 scale I figured that the cantina should be named after him.

Hi Michael :wave:


I think the new 1:35 cantina is OFF the Moose scale !! :shocked:


So I'd have to give it the Freerails 5-cowboys & 5-Mexicans rating !! ;)

I hope they have plenty of 'Shiner' on ice . . . :bg:

Thank you Michael! I would certainly go there for a cervesa at my favorite watering hole. Thanks for remembering an old dude, now be sure to put some guys & girls on the porch and inside.

Si, thanks for the high rating.

Woodie, I got a few plastic figures I need to work on.  Got a female coming in the mail.  What I could use are a couple of benches out front.  Or, maybe a few of those western style chairs.

Michael, check out some of the military distributors like Squadron, etc. I have seen chairs & benches that would work in a US setting.

Here is one figure.  He still needs some work...paint is too shiny and that bottle of red eye is too large.

I made the bottle from a mini light (Christmas tree lights).  Working on a new bottle made from a q-tip handle.  Some touch-up paint on the figure to tone down that shine.
