Hi everyone, I thought I'd share with you this HO scale Nativity scene that I just built.
I bought the figures for this scene several years ago, and have finally gotten around to building the scene to go with them.
I remember as a child, helping my mom out at Christmas by setting up the miniature nativity scene as part of the season's decorations in our house.
Carefully unwrapping each figure from the tissue that it had been stored in from the year before.
Placing each figure & animal in it's proper place.
And finally plugging in and turning on, the single yellow coloured Christmas bulb that went into a hole in the backdrop of this scene.
Acting as the star of Bethlehem and also lighting for this little nativity scene.
I don't know what ever happened to that nativity scene, perhaps one of my 5 sisters ended up with it.
I tried to build this HO scale one to look like the one that I remember from my youth.

I hope you will enjoy my HO scale nativity scene!

Greg Shinnie

Thanks! Bob.
No need to apologize my friend, I know that it's hard to keep up with all of the stuff that's always happening on the forum.

Greg, I Love it !!! We still set up a Nativity scene every Christmas but yours will have more meaning to you. You have done a great job.

Please see my apology in my Terrell build string.

I would love to see a photo of it, if you get the chance.

Frank, I don't think this kind of thing would appeal to most model railroaders.
However... I am hopeful that my first kit will be something that everyone will want to have on their pikes!

Mark, thanks for your kind words, and for your memories of your family nativity scene.
I'm glad to read that you got your family nativity scene.
Turns out my youngest sister was the one that got ours.

Great Job Greg on the Manger scene. I have the manger scene from my grandparents some of the figurines are about 80 yrs. old my parents give it to me one Christmas I ask them where the manger scene was they said I was the only one of my brothers who ask about so they give to me because they didn't display that year.

Thanks! FrankieJ, I'm glad you enjoyed this little scene.

A big AMEN to all of the positive comments. You did an excellent job on this Nativity scene.
Ensign Posted - 11/21/2018 : 08:47:50 AM
Mike, Jim & John, thanks for taking the time to share your nice posts with me.
I'm glad to read that some of you have your own memories about your own nativity scenes growing up.

That's a great looking scene, Greg. Super work!
BurleyJim Posted - 11/21/2018 : 08:18:47 AM
Thanks for bringing that great memory back to life. I remember laying on the floor looking into that scene and listening to the old Zenith Console radio playing Christmas music. Yep, I'm that old.
