    These are modeled after the larger commercial models, which are about 12" longer than what J.Q. Public's used to. Now, if only Hyram can get Harlen to use them...

    If I didn't know that you are an incredible modeler, I'd have sworn those were gag photos of G scale equipment with one of those oversized penny souvenirs!

    Outstanding models...simply outstanding!

    Brian, gas grills are for Nawtherners and their whine and cheese parties :D Down South here is Kingsford charcoal country. Built the grill about 10 years ago from a kit's barrel that came in two halves. Some ladder stock, wire and sliced sprue did the rest.

    Nuts, Eric...I thought it'd take longer for someone to figure it out :oops: ;)

    Thanks, Larry...it's Bob by the way :D Fred's the better lookin' one... :eek:
