    This is supposed to look like a foggy morning. If it doesn't look that way to you, well at least give me credit for turning the durn headlight on! :D :p :D

    Thanks folks! Planeshavings about that era thing :D , I'm shooting for late 60's early 70's but I'm having a hard time finding vehicles in that time period. This area still had a lot of 40's and 50's vehicles by the early 70's (still have a tow truck as old as the one in my photo rolling around here today) but if anyone knows where some decent quality 60's vehicles can be had please let me know (n-scale of course). Thanks :)

    Mike, I had the same problem of finding modern vehicles for the layout. The best source I could find is "Lineside Models" they have an impressive range of kits for modern 1:160 autos.

    Tyson,
    I've been in the mountains where the fog rode at a higher elevation, looks a lot like that.

    Never mind Yakko, Yahoo found em". For anybody else interested www.thebbline.com , they come as kits and complete. Just wish they had pics or said if they were metal or plastic. Oh well when I get a few $$$ I will order a couple and find out. Thanks again for the lead Yakko!

    Tyson,
    I wouldn't know what era it is, my ignorance is blissfull of such things :) . I appreciate your photo cos it's railroady and it's good (even if it does need a tad more mist :) )
    It's only failing is that I can't hear the crossing bell! :D

    Mike, They are cast resin. They need to be sanded and de-burred but the only parts that need assembly are the wheels and steering column. I have only assembled one, ('66 Mustang convertable) and had a bit of difficulty getting the paint to adhere at first but a quick swipe with 300 grit emery cloth roughed the surface enough for the paint to stick, and not enough to create grooves in the finished project. (solid windshield is a bit of a detraction.)

    I find many online in the e-bay n-scale track and accessories section. Don't pay more than 4 bucks a pop. local hobby shops and train shows sell them for 4.99-8.99.

    Thanks Yakko, are they close to scale and do they have decent detail?

    Tyson,
    Those resin kits usually are very nice models.
    The solid windows can be delt with by painting them black, & then heavy gloss coat over that.
    btw...excelent photo...any of us Southern fans can tell the era by that black paint scheme. :)
    And you're right, when I was growing up, none of us drove a car made in the decade we were living in! Heck, I'm STILL driving my 84 F-150! She don't look that good anymore, but I still love
    her! :D

    Fog

    Hi Tyson, Just sitting here playing around and added some "fog" to your picture. Did it to just see what would happen as I never had tried to "fog" a pic before. Without a doubt you capture the "flavor" of Applachia in your models. I really like them!!:)
