You're doing a wonderful work on this garage scene, Roland.
And thanks for the links to Chuck's and my work. The one who deserves compliments is Chuck : he motivated us all to make our best.

Here is a link to the Red Oak album on Chuck's Fotki site. Without all these pictures I wouldn't have been able to complete my model.

This is as far as I have gotten on the Model T. I plan to finish putting it all together then spray it black, like all good Model Ts should be, then pick out the details after. The story is that Geezer, before he was old enough to be a Geezer, was driving to work one morning when his car stopped. Being an accomplished shade tree mechanic he has popped the hood and is trying to get it going again. Sonny is trying to tell him he is just out of gas. Sonny is also learning a whole new vocabulary, but we won't go there.



I have a few more pieces to add. Also need to repaint the figures

Nice project. Geezer and Sonny look good. Sonny has a full tail. But then this is just fun and imagination.

I got a chuckle out of this tale. Looking forward to more progress from you.

Tom, Arthur, Jerry. Thanks.

I know Sonny will need a full tail and a lot more white paint. The paint on the dog now was done several years ago. I the few parts to finish the car and gave the whole thing a coat of paint. Have to wait until tomorrow for the paint to set up

Speak Sonny. [:-dog]



I usually take Sarah with me when I'm running errands.
I don't take her when I go to the gym.
When I come home she does this yodeling thing where it sounds like she's talking.
Sounds like she's yelling at me for leaving her home.

FYI: from wikipedia..a bit of interesting color facts that I found...

By 1918, half of all the cars in the US were Model Ts. However, it was a monolithic bloc; Ford wrote in his autobiography that in 1909 he told his management team that in the future ďAny customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is blackĒ.

However, in the first years of production from 1908 to 1913, the Model T was not available in black but rather only grey, green, blue, and red. Green was available for the touring cars, town cars, coupes, and Landaulets. Grey was only available for the town cars, and red only for the touring cars. By 1912, all cars were being painted midnight blue with black fenders. It was only in 1914 that the "any color so long as it is black" policy was finally implemented. It is often stated that Ford suggested the use of black from 1914 to 1926 due to the cheap cost and durability of black paint. During the lifetime production of the Model T, over 30 different types of black paint were used on various parts of the car. These were formulated to satisfy the different means of applying the paint to the various parts, and had distinct drying times, depending on the part, paint, and method of drying.

Thank you to all who replied. Comments are always appreciated. I finished painting the T tonight. The front tire does sit flat on the ground, just needs dirt under it.



Now to give Sonny a tail. Any suggestions?

Looking good Roland.

No idea re: tail. Maybe best to leave it as is?

Great looking car, Ronald. Agreeing with Arthur, liking Sonny as is.

Cheers, Heath.
