I finished mine
Here is what it is based on

The closest I could get was the Laurel & Hardy model T, some LGB track and some wheels off the MPC General
ImageThis has been a back burner project for some years. have no idea what the back or other side looks like so I improvised, hope that's ok Arron.

I guess the ranger would be armed and would need binoculars and water

Had to add a little fun to it with the rabbit

Stars at night. You see them due to the light traveling from them. What you see is the stars past. If you are seeing a star that's 6,000 yrs ago. Imagine somebody on that star looking at us. They'd be seeing us as 6,000 yrs ago. Which of those two is now?

Gary: See if you can find a way to post the photos directly here. As the "official judge" for this year I want to be able to see it along with the others in the build. ;)

Gary,

Go to Flickr and look for the arrow button (Share this photo) in the bottom right hand corner of your pictures. When you click that, you should get an option menu for sharing. Click on the BBCode and paste that into the website here.

I can't share your photos because of your privacy settings, but you should be able to share your own photos as long as you are logged into Flickr.

Good luck.

Edit: Now that Gary figured out how to post, I removed the photo but keep the How to!

Dave,
Looks like you just drove her out of the station bay! Excellent job! Love all the details AND yes, I do like the lime yellow paint!

Very nice, Dave. I really like it. What department are you going to make it for? This could be Chittenango's brush truck (if we had one :lol: ).
