    Trailer Park Done

    The trailer park and it's details are complete.
    You will notice the TV antennas , Tires on the roofs , Fences , Kids and People , and of coarse the discontent workers of Fifer Unobtainium.

    Looks great! I love your attention to detail. Love the people sitting on theporches. On the protesters, have them work on getting fifer obtainium, it is a lot easier to find.:) I was very happy to see those figures produced, protesters will fit in GREAT on the layout I am going to build.

    I Love your trailer park (and the ghost town :thumb:). You have a good eye for all those details that make a scene come alive. Fantastic job.

    HAHA Tires on the roofs of the trailer - great stuff! Nice detailing! The blades on the dozer and grader look real. (Considering how difficult it is to mine unobtainium you've got to sympathize with the LPP's a bit...but they knew the risks when they took the job.)

    The trailer park owner must have some standards for their residents; I don't notice any cars up on concrete blocks. :mrgreen:

    Mike, I keep coming back to look at your work.

    You have a good 'storyline' and it's illustrated with craftsmanship and some great photos.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Thank you for sharing.:thumb:

    In passing ...

    I was deeply intrigued by your unobtainium mine, so I did a bit of research, and hacked the US gov SSEWDK website. (So Secret Even We Don't Know)

    Now it can be revealed.

    The only purpose of mining unobtainium is its use in

    extracting taxium from the electorite.
