    I changed this one as it did not show any of my modeling skills, just my ability to position stuff real well.

    Well, I'm afraid my LPC's (Little Plastic Comrades) couldn't come for a photoshoot as they are busily (and very happily) working and singing building the October Revolution Paper Mill (which is coming on very nicely.. after all the Nova Scotia Northern is a workers paradise!).

    Anyway, they said, very sorry, love the photo's, glad to see that most of thier comrades on other railroads are having fun and aren't being too oppressed by Robber-Barons (or Baroness's)

    Great pictures everybody!

    Crankpin and his bride Bambi romancing at a roadside rest stop before heading home on their scooter.

    I removed my first entry because I felt it didn't reflect the modeling spirit of this forum as they were simply well posed merchandise. The two figures here are a composite of over 5 different Plasticville figures "frankensteined" into this pose. The bike is a Micro-Machines kitbash and the picnic table is scratchbuilt. Posed on a pile of sand on a snacktable at dusk.

    Two questions.

    1. Where are the soldiers going?

    2. What are the women-folk waiting for?

    :D :D :D

    Jon,
    the snow on the ground is fantastic! I'm sorry for your soldiers who have to march through the cold, white stuff.

    Tyson,
    speaking of family forums: That's exactly the way how families get started, isn't it? :D

    Bob,
    great frankensteining, indeed! And the photography is top notch, too!

    As I said before, this time judging will be awfully tough!

    The soldiers, a platoon of the Durham Light Infantry, are off to the station to catch a troop special. The women are a couple of 'milkmaids' from the adjacent dairy farm, come to wave their menfolk off to France.:wave: :cry:

    Here Mr. Kruger poses for a shot on my favorite GP. I painted Freddy, who was born in Germany at Preiser.
