Ted, there won’t be that quality of junk all over the place. Most will be “mock” junk.

Rick, boy I hear ya’.

Mike like I said to Ted this is the quality stuff. Dave spent hours on the concrete mixer, so this is a limited run.

That’s some high quality junk indeed. I like the rust effects in particular.

You have probably seen Frank's heavily rebuilt critter locomotive on its own forum thread, but here is a video of Frank's model running with the reversing unit. This is a thing of GREAT beauty!

It's running a little fast here because we were testing the start up voltage. You have to admit those Kato mechanisms do run nice.

I thought you had a "Fast Clock".

The scene does really look great and the little critter does run well.

Frank, please just reread everyone else's comments.
They express my feelings about your new critter.


As you think, so will you be.

Jerry no all clocks are EST.

Thanks Bob.

Rick, I totally get it and thanks .


Here’s a couple of shots of the junk yard as Dave and I added more junk. It’s weird we call it junk but it takes hours to create each piece of junk.

A couple more cars.



An HO scale gon repurposed as a yard hauler.





Dave’s fence and signs.



The tire pile around Dave’s “Jersey Barrier group”. Oh the white stuff around the scene is 50/50 white glue and water. We’re having a tough time getting it to dry today, it’s raining outside.





The designated junk yard gondola being spotted.



So much more junk (to add) and so little time. We’ve covered less than half the area.

Just "Wow!", Frank. The whole junkyard scene looks terrific and the critter fits right in. I like the smaller gon the critter is pushing, too.

is right Frank'. The "DEVIL" is in the details'. The random white wall tires add that touch of realism that would be seen in the real thing. The critter, crane, carry all bring everything together'.. As always, OUTSTANDING modeling and work from you and your crew'..

Here are few more shots I took today of the scrapyard and Hopes Salvage. We are making good progress on this area.
