Hi John,

Goodness, you're one sharp-eyed rascal! Yep, that's a fine distributor of the best in produce with locations in Arizona and California. Nice job!!

Cheers,

Karl

I'm sure may of us notice the "earthly delights" in front of the fruit stand but too restrained to comment.



Hello 1gnfan,

Nope, you made the cut, I was just finishing the truck this evening.

I liked both Rick's and your suggestion for the graphics on the truck and then it hit me... heck, you can only see one side of the truck at a time!

So, voila, my solution...

Great photos and modeling sir.

Karl,

I've been watching you design and build this wonderful model, lurking in the background for several weeks. It would take me a month of Sundays to paint and perfectly place all of the details you have used here. I especially like the details in the sagging roof shed, behind the teal Fine Scale Miniatures Van, and that wrecked vehicle up in the tree! Could we see a closer look in that area? My eyes are not what they used to be. I would also like to see closer images of the signs you used. Thanks for sharing your excellent talent with us.

Hi Karl,

I just revisited this whole thread after some time of not checking in. Just wonderful work as always. Thanks so much for sharing, the last hour flew by without blinking.

Lots of inspiration there for any modeler!

Hello Karl,
Once again you have taken the art of modeling & photography to a new level.
Thank you very much for taking the time of sharing your work with us.
I remember talking to you about shooting photo's of little HO scale structures as you work & it is not easy.
With that being said the quality of your photo's bring the little structures & figures back to life
If it is not too much trouble could you please post a photo on the open front shed with the sway back roof. Would love to see all the detail you have sitting around in that little shed
I want to thank you in advance for any help you can on taking that photo

My friend I see you haven't lost your touch. Or your inventive ideas. The diorama looks fantastic.

Hello folks,

Thanks to the fellas' that have joined in with the kind words and replies...I appreciate them all.

Mike & Rich,

I was up kind of late last night and I'll try to get some photos for you guys...

Pat,

Where have you been? Still building stuff?

Frank,

Yep, back to the old tenements!

Here's some close up photos of the shed and the signs on Verno's. Thanks for looking.

Cheers,

Karl O.

Karl,
I want to thank you very much the the great photo's. I can only imagine how much trouble it was to get a photo of the shed. Looks like you use a few of every detail ever made in that old shed.
Once again thank you & love the photo's.
You got anything more coming out in the near future for all of us to drool over?

Karl,
I love looking at the fruit & vegetable stand,
Can you please check your notes to see where the casting detail fruits & vegetables came from.
I checked Jimmy's FSM castings & he shows some watermelon however nothing looks like the stack with the cut open sample melon.
You should be very proud of your painting on the little castings
Thanking you in advance
Mike Sigmon
