Failing eyes and shaky hands,

make a lot of things more difficult these days.

:shocked:

He seems to do things the old fashioned way,

to avoid saying the hard way.

Gerold

The amazing thing is that his models look great when finished. 

I didn't post his photo of the starting of this model, and will in this post,
so all can see how far he has come with this model. 

Regards, Dave L.

I've been showing my diecast vehicle projects for quite a while.

Their use for large scale layouts and especially their use
on outdoor layouts is such a positive thing.

For many years I had planned a 1:24 trolley layout,
and built plastic models for that intended layout. 

My son brought up a box of my plastic models,
and I thought I'd share a few with you. 

This one I dated 1997,
so I've been building models for a lot of years. 

The watermelons are painted green jelly beans.

This arrived recently.
 
It is an Ertl Ford van.
It was in rough shape with tires melted and nicks on the edges.

How the tires ended up in that condition I cannot even imagine. 
I had a spare set of tires that replaced the damaged ones.
 
A bottle of BIC Wite-Out with its little sponge applicator,
easily touched up the nicks on the edges. 

Total investment was less than eight bucks. 

Regards, Dave L.

On my 1935 era trolley layout that never got built,

the Police were still using their old Ford Model A.

A tank truck for the trolley layout.

There was going to be an airport scene at the end of the layout,
and I needed a tanker for aviation fuel.
