Hot Wheels Robinmobile.

Part of the Hot Wheels DC line of vehicles.

Here with a Robin in 1/72nd scale.

I love the color scheme of the vehicle.

Nice details on the car too.

Buildings and Tim Mee

ACW troops with MPC log cabin.

ACW Troops with pterodactyl. 

Miniature version.

Buildings and Tim Mee troops.

Marching with the flag.

These buildings make a nice little military base, ACW camp, or rocket base, quickly and cheaply.

Furniture and Buildings

Another MPC building.  I think the vents under the window are supposed to be air conditioners. 

The sides!

The doors open and close.  Here is a flag installed on the roof.

60mm MPC soldier in front.

These troops are a good size for these troops.

Construction office is the same size.

Marx cowboy furniture inside the building.

I think it works well with these buildings.

ACW figures with the building.

MPC Buildings

MPC Buildings were an interesting way to provide cheap buildings made of plastic.  This one is the Construction Office.

The buildings consist of a front, two sides, and a roof panel.  The clip into each other.  The roof has a flag stand.

There is no back.

The two sides are the same.

I am missing all the parts to this one.  I think there is some kind of floor.

And there are no sides, but it's an interesting building.

This one is back to the same design as the first building.  

It's a nice log cabin style building.

Small Ships

For the first time in a long while, I did some work on the 1/2400 fleet.

The Queen Mary.


Cargo ship.

This is a little plastic red ship model.

I use it as a coast defense ship.

It's rather old like a ship made in the late 1800's.

Shown here with the Bremen.

Various Updates

I finished my acoustical aircraft detector by painting the wheels.  I think it turned out pretty well.

This is just outside my bunker.  Bunny.

Same place, this time a deer.

Almost every day we see bunnies, deer, turkeys, buzzards, or other wildlife.

Out the front door, you can almost see the bunny on the gravel driveway.  It's nice to have the wildlife nearby.  Our neighbor has cattle and we see them nearly every day.

Soviet Trains

I have been working on more Soviet armored train cars.

This is an old gondola car.

Probably made by Tyco or some other cheap rolling stock.

I cut up a second car to make the higher side wall.

I happened to have two very old 37mm Soviet anti-aircraft guns and one when into each end.

The rocket launch rails were from a collection I purchased 20 years ago.

They finally got their permanent home!

The Soviets made several train cars like this.

Here  it is with my railway gun.

Providing anti-aircraft protection for the big cannon.

Now my Soviets have even more ability to conduct major operations.
