I'll be darn...yikes, that never occurred to me.

Guess I'll have to pay better attention to what I do...

Hi Mike,

Yeah, I guess I don't pay a lot of attention to that sort of thing...doesn't bother me at all.

Hi Rich,

Thank you - you've made my day!! Did you also notice the white goose biting the old lady in the a$$? Oh, I guess my selection of vehicles must be totally wrong. Darn, and I thought they were perfect for the scene...very colorful.

Cheers,

Nothing like a slingshot dragster revving up to wake up the populous.

Hi Tony,

Would these things be something like the stuff you collect? I know they're for lettering but other than that I have no idea what to do with them. They've been sitting in a drawer here for over 50 years and that's about the whole story.

I have a set around here some place along with my pens from when I was working as a draftsman and had to do ink drawings.
Was a few years ago, still have my slide rule from college also as we were not allowed to have a calculator
even if you could afford one back then.

Hello folks,

Well, it seems ol' Sparky's junk pile was getting out of hand so he called his buddy that owned an old, used garbage truck and asked if he'd bring it over, load it up and haul away some of his trash...

This started out as a Jordan flat-bed Mack that I decided to turn into a dirty, old garbage truck. I got some photos off the internet and scratch-built the one shown here. I made all the parts from sheet and strip styrene and ended up with this thing...

Cheers,

Karl nice conversion. You got me interested in those curious looking garbage trucks. I went looking and found this one. I wonder who the lucky guy was that got to ride in back?
