They are nice models.

I have a few Sun Stars to put on the Fish Head layout someday.

Thanks for the photo.

Regards, Dave L.

Yep, that's a fine T. Just a little bit smaller, the Solido (?)
1:32 Model T's are very nice also.
And even better, Diecast Direct sometimes has a "2 for 1" Model T sale...
last time I looked that was $10...$5 each!
Can't have too many Model T's anyway.

Woodie

I love Ts, too.

I need 1/24 and they are more expensive.


Motor Max, Sun Star make a nice variety of Ts,

but at $30-$50 each, they are too dear for me right now.

Hey Bob,

Haven't heard much from you in a while.

How are things going?

I have not accomplished much lately. 

Finishing up a kitchen renovation,
took my granddaughter to Washington DC etc. 

Have been operating Geneseo Railway,
but only minor little projects have been completed.  

Hope to get going on projects worthy of posting soon.

I have been desiring a backdrop for a long long time and have been considering hiring someone to put paint on the walls. 
I decided to give it a go myself and spent a little time over the past week painting the walls blue and adding some clouds.
 
Today I picked a spot to start some scenery. 
A road that needed to curve out of sight with pine trees as a backdrop. 
Figured the worst that could happen is I would have to paint over it again.
 
Not to dissatisfied for a first attempt. 
Suspect I will learn as I go.

Hi Bob,

Try stippling in some darker green, here and there on your painted pine trees.
Note the dark areas on your model trees.

Other than looking a little flat,
your first attempt at painting a backdrop came out very effective.
