    Axes and hammers, plus an N scale snow shovel for Dick. Felt sorry for him with all that snow; I thought he could get one of his plastic people to help him dig out next time!

    A wise monkey never monkies with another monkey's monkey(wrench).

    Hi Jesper, no mickey-scopes, not even a maggy-glass. I just use small hand tools and brass stock (different sized rod, tube and shim). The only thing I have that's not common is mini ball pein hammers. Otherwize just common plyers, cutters, tweezers, and little plastic workers to do the easy stuff...

    Well, I have not only seen the light, I have photographed it, and hope to have a good shot for the contest when I get the film processed :)

    Yes, the small ones are the very tiny model power bulbs with the brass parts glued on with power poxy and they are about the size of a coleman type lantern. The larger one is over scale with about a 12" shade on it. The bottom is a brass disk soldered to a short pice of brass tube and the shad is a brass disk that is drilled and hammered out into a dome. You about need a little palstic blacksmith to do that part. :D :D :D

    What crazy people do in their spare time...

    N scale pigeons? hmmmmm, how about we use pepper? Then we can shake on some salt for the poop! :D :D :D

    Shamus, you forgot to tell me their little plastic shoe sizes! OK, so I made them adjustable, the strap can be trimmed off after adjustment. The funny shaped objects are spikes (corks) for the little tree toppers feet. Kinda hard to see here.
