Hi Wes  :cb:


Sounds to me like your Misses knows her stuff !  ???  [whack]


If the dude is 6' tall in 1:24 ... Sounds like a winner to me !  :thumb:

Does it look like he can get in & drive the railtruck ?  L:

He needs to use the steering-wheel easily.  :P


In my 1:24n3 incarnation some years back ...  :time:

... I used 1:24 scale 'Tamiya' Rally Mechanics.  :cool:


They are the right height ...

... but are all on VERY low-cal. diets !!  :shocked:


:java::moose:


Si.

We decided to move the space for the layout north,
so I really get almost 14' x 30'
 
The north edge will be adjacent to a new shed,
I am building to look like an old freight shed.

The south border will be pink muhly grass,
that will cast a shadow on the layout in the right season.

South will be flagstone.

And the water feature will share the back corner with the layout.

I was originally thinking the railcar was based on a Model-A front end.


With some research, found that it should be a Pierce-Arrow,

which was a lot wider than a Model-A.

Getting closer to move-in.

Anxious to start collecting free rock and concrete blocks found on Facebook marketplace.
