      Be sure to include someone illicitly smoking behind the stand

      This looks like a LOT of fun, Boomer.  (Great nickname for a fireworks fan!) I'm looking forward to watching your progress!  Good luck!

      Nice you work fast.  I still have to cut the tree down to make my napkin to draw on.

      Fun project! As you say, the real work will be in the details. 

       


      I've seen models of firework factories (often blown up, burned down, or some other gag) but I don't recall ever seeing a fireworks stand on a model railroad before.

      My eyesight won't let me read the car kit's manufacturer. Who made it? They might sell just what I need!

      Doug, those car kits were originally made by Hubley, and later sold under the Gabriel name. You can still find them sometimes on ebay.

      Thanks. I'll have to keep watch. I'm looking for a flatbed truck from about 1920 to bash into a prospector's rig.

      There is a fire engine as well. Boomer, what scale was the Packard? I struck paydirt at a flea market and got 4 of these sets for $10 total. I also have a partial kit that is gonna be used for a service station model.

      Boomer I like the stand. It looks great and reminds me of the freeway stands I saw around here as a kid.

      Not to bad, to be leading the parade on progress.   Now aren't you glad I cajoled you into joining in our RR games.


      Last year the guy (John L.) we talked into it,  won the whole shooting match.


      You'r doing the Land Of Enchantment proud.

      Wow Boomer your build is really coming along. Your design reminds me of a snack shack so maybe after the 4th they can sell hotdogs out of there.   ;-)
