If it wasn't for the background being cropped out, there are a couple pictures that look like FATW pix. Amazing!

OK I'm a modeler but how in the world do you get so much detail?!???!? When I saw the penny next to the tractor I was amazed at the size and the paint/weathering. Guy must have tons of patience and lots of time on his hands!

Rick, my thoughts exactly. Can't believe he can get such attention to the details using such a small sized "platform". Wait I've got it. He works in hollywood and the penny is really the size of a dinner table. Anyone buy that? grin

Thanks for sharing Claes!!

I've had nmy eyes on that model for a couple of months now, glad you liked it :-) I dont know if it is photo shopped in any way.. but the details are truly amazing.

Btw, flickr has some 60+ pages of gas stations, many are very nice and some are nicely photographed or photo shopped also.

Wow....... that is truly in incredible model and beautiful workmanship.
With all his attention to detail I"m surprised that he let the tractor wheels and tires slide.

What are you talking about Husky Bob???? The tractor is one of the most detailed parts including the wheels and tires. I can't believe how he got the rusted, weathered look. It even has oil stains around the oil pan! Unbelievable, the more I look the more I see!

It's a beautiful job but I was wondering about the tires too. Were hard rubber tires used on tractors between the time of steel wheels and pneumatic tires? I noticed the truck tires have tread or some what bald tires. I've just never seen hard rubber on a tractor?

I know they had hard rubber tires. As a kid we had an old,old Oliver and my dad would drive nails in the front tires to get steering traction.

Rick you are most probably right and I do apologize for jumping the gun on the Fordson.
Coming from a farming community the smooth wheels didn't look right to me as there is no way it could have pulled even a 2-bottom plow without losing traction.
Most of the old Fordson's I have seen have had steel wheels with steel cleats or lugs.
With that being said I have never seen one set up for industrial use which is what I would think this particular design was based on.

HSL I believe that pneumatic tires were introduced in the early 1930's and alot of the tractors with steel wheels were converted to rubber tires.

Gosh gang I would say easily a couple of tears on this diorama . Working in 1-48th scale is advantagous as I was at a local hobby shop today talking H O or 1-48th with the manager . Seems that a company now has Gulf , Sunoco , Clark , and Sinclair signs that light up using two A A batteries and look like neon signs !Theres also a Dr Pepper sign too. Im tolsd that the company , Model Power also sells a kit to possibly do your own sign . Now these signs arent exactly cheap . They run about 50.00 plus tax. They come with a skeletom frame to make a rooftop bill board .
I thought I was being unique as I want to add one of Dick Bennett's decals as a Bill board sign to my Amoco station ....... No , I got beat by somebody over in Asia building these electronic gadgets ! Ed Shaver


see ya on the road folks !
