Excellent! I too like the storm drain and manhole, nice touch.

When you made those conical lampshades, what kind of glue did you use on the aluminum?

Pete, Dave, and Ray, thanks for your comments.

Ray, No glue was used. The aluminum is that stuff sold in craft shops for embossing artwork. It is
thick enough to hold it's shape without gluing. Then I used BONDIC to fill in and smooth out the
area between the end of the styrene tube arm and the shade. That in effect glued the shade together
and to the goose-neck.

Ray, I forgot to mention, the storm drain and man hole cover are from VectorCut. I think it's the
only thing he does in 1/24 scale but they are outstanding. Hard to see here but all the little
detail in the cover are laser cut into it.

Glad to see you using those VectorCut items. Dave originally started doing those in 1/48, and I asked him to consider 1/24 and was the first to order a few sets.

Dave at VectorCut does a LOT of stuff that is simply superb. Much of it is offered in the smaller scales, but things like gears and tools and belts and valve handles are clearly useable in 1/24. Prices are WAY reasonable and delivery is prompt.

End of VectorCut pitch.

Carl, Dallas, and Dave, thanks for the posts.

Dallas, I was thinking the other day that I had not seen a post from you in quite a while. I
figured you were busy with business again.

Dave, I agree, all of the VectorCut stuff is truly amazing. I too use many items from smaller scales,
a big gear in HO is just a small gear in 1/24. I have also approached Dave about scaling up some
of his 1/48 stuff to 1/24 but he was reluctant, which I can understand.

Just playing around. It looks like Charlie and Cousin Larry are planning a trip to Canada. The
Penny Scale (where you get your weight and your future for a penny) is a resin kit from Scale
Equipment Ltd., the mailbox if one of a series of small resin kits I used to make and sell, and
the automobile is a 1940 Ford Tudor Sedan from the Danbury Mint.

Bob, brilliant looking row of structures.
The street lamps have come up great.
The manhole cover & drain in the street is a nice touch, and something that isn't modeled a lot.


Regards Rob

Despite the cost of living, it's still popular.

Ray, Ted, Dave, Mario, and Rob, thanks for your nice comments, much appreciated.

Ted, I signed on this morning just to correct a mistake that I knew I had made and I see you
caught it first, the Ford was from Danbury Mint, not Franklin, I have many from both mints.

Now, if the weather would cooperate I would like to get some photos outside under natural light but
it does not look like that will happen soon.

Cheers,
Bob

Bob, Nice details. Your mailbox is just right. I wonder if that particular penny scale tends to give out fortunes that say "You are about to take a long sea voyage' !
