Ok in this installment of "Narrow Gauge On A Budget" this one for all the wife's and girl friends and partners who have put up with all our railroad crap through the years. For sometime now my wife have been getting on me about building her a little "Diorama" of my work to keep on her desk at work. I didn't want anything  to big  that would take up to much space or to small that it would get knock off onto the floor. After searching through some old HO stuff I didn't need anymore, I came up with a neat little ideal called: "Our Block" it's a scene depicting my wife working at her bakery called "Paula's Pie's and me if I ever hit the "LOTTO"  cleaning up a spilled mess outside my hobby shop called: "Ronnie's Trains".  The little diorama took 2 days to build and consisted of 2 old HO Woodland Scenic buildings, a HO 1940's delivery truck(repainted).2 telephone poles and couple of scratch-built trees, A model car case for the base and a lot little HO detail parts.

So the next time you screw up at home or make her made at you !!! Just give her one of these. She'll love you for it.:thumb:

Ronnie-that's a great little diorama you built for the Mrs. Be very glad and fortunate that you have her around and that she appreciates your (and maybe her) hobby. My wife always let me work on junk (I was at home, not drunk in the streets) and she even built some structures for our HOn30 layout. We went to see the old West Side Lumber Co. once and she built what could be considered a contest quality model of a WS boxcar..interior and all in HOn3. And then there's the time we went to a national NMRA convention in St. Louis; she won first place model photography with a picture of a locomotive I built which didn't even rate a "mention" at the same contest! It was a proud moment to watch her go up and get her ribbon at the ceremony amid guys whispering-"a woman? Why did they give it to a woman?" I really miss her but know that she would appreciate what I am doing now even if she would have to call me to come inside for supper.

The wives of model railroaders, you just gotta love them.
