The mentioning of my someday trolley layout, 
came up in my thread on collecting trolley postcards. 

It is yet another hobby within a hobby for me. 

Regards, Dave L.

Dave

These are nice shots of Connecticut Company cars. 

An interesting operation.

Today I took another look at an Ertl Ford Model T 
that was sitting on the shelf. 

I removed the top and clunky box on the back. 
The tires went to the Heinz pickle truck, 
and now I am deciding a project for it. 

It could be the basis for a little fire truck. 
I'll think on it. 

The lettering is a sticker and will be hard to remove. 

Regards, Dave L.

The pickle truck with the new tires. 
I sure wish there was a source of tires for the Ertl vehicles. 

This model was in pretty bad shape. 
Tires and paint touch up were needed. 

One of the headlights was missing, 
so I removed the good light. 

Since headlights were not the law before October 27, 1917 
(Massachusetts passed the first law) and this is a 1913 Ford van, 
I'll just say the owner didn't need them. 

:shocked: 

Regards, Dave L

My friend Jon is taking a break from his LaSalle project,
to work on this unusual vehicle.

He added a resin Jeep cab to something.

:Crazy:

Work on my Studebaker C cab is progressing slowly.

I'm not totally happy with the shape o the cab side yet.

Thanks for looking. 

Regards, Dave L.

Apparently the rear clip of a late fifties Chrysler product,

De Soto or something similar.


What puzzles me are the four taillights,

most of those cars had six of them.

Health issues are now making it difficult to work on projects,
and sharing my work here on the Forum.

It's been a lot of fun cutting, chopping, and painting my diecast models,
and I hope to be able to do some more eventually.

I snapped some shots of my favorite truck and auto projects today.

Regards, Dave L.

Hi Gerold

I've been posting for three years here on Freerails in my Threads,
on my 'Fish Head Glue Layout', 'What Is Gn15 ?', and this Thread.

I've described these models over that time in these Threads,
although the trucks have been a more recent area of interest.

Regards, Dave L.
