Well, I have another good ol' question! I've been doing a ton of work on the layout lately. A burst of enthusiasm, you may call it. My recent project has been a road and its crossing over the BRB mainline. Pictures will come this weekend, along with a post in the HO forum to show my progress thus far. Anyway, for the road and crossings, I need road signs (maybe a billboard too) era 1950s or so. I was hoping to save money (and besides, the LHS didn't have anything but those unrealistic LifeLike ripoff signs) and use toothpicks painted either FolkArt Acorn Brown or Floquil Concrete (whether I want wood or "metal") with styrene attached. The styrene would hold the sign printed off my inkjet printer. So, my question is, exactly how big should the signs be? Does anyone have a handy sheet with scaled signs already? And do you like the idea of using painted toothpicks as poles? Please let me know. Once I get these done, just another touch of detail will be out of the way! :thumb: Thanks!
