Great looking pics. Is that old Ford pickup truck a Revell model from years ago?

Thanks, Ted !!

Jack, that's a Yat Ming "Road Signatures" truck. It was Coke red. I repainted it my favorite shade of Carolina blue and detailed it a little.

Is that a 1/43 scale truck? How do you find the size to be in relation to everything else that is 1/48 scale?
Cheers,
Dave

Yes, Dave, it's 1/43. I suppose it's a little large. But the difference is pretty small to my eyes, it doesn't bother me at all.

Dave,
most 1:48 scale layouts employ 1:43 scale vehicles. There are not too many 1:48 trucks and cars out there. Some, but not many. Both scales blend in pretty well together.
Now, the 1:50 scale vehicles do look a little out of place unless placed far back on a scene for a forced prospective look. Same goes with figures...if the different scales are blended in correctly in a scene the shortcomings in size, either too large or too small
aren't noticeable...

I've spent the past week adding another truck to the railroad fleet. The fleet has now grown to three, on occasion. If I'm not using one somewhere else.
























And it started out as this:

Well, due to the holidays, bad weather, a bad case of the flu, my general laziness and a few other excuses I won't go into, the layout has not been evolving at a very fast rate lately. But I did add a little green around the garage.

It's always nice to see some new photos of your work whether there are lots of new things to show or not. I missed the photos of your new truck so that is new to me, and I really like it. Hard to believe it started out as such a toy-like model.

Mike
