Thank you all for stopping in and for the encouragement.

I ended up with some figures in winter gear and with it being Christmas and all; I decided a 12" Pizza layout of a Christmas scene was in order. I am working on some additional details to the scene and should be finished in time for Christmas. Think Booze and a snowman.

Heath,
Thanks so much. Notice the Class C car you designed. It is navigating extremely tight radius curve. This is about as tight as they will go.

Larry you're in France with a barrel on a cart. Cheers - it's wine man!

Don't forget the German vs. Allies soccer match Christmas Day.

My modeling friends are amazing. I got home from a 3 week business trip to find a box containing an article from WW1 for me to keep safe. A Princess Mary Christmas Gift Box.

I need to find a great way to incorporate a scene using this.

Larry, nice to see this thread back on top again!
That's a pretty cool tin, is it a reproduction?
Looks in amazing shape if it is original, for having gone through a war 100 hundred years ago.
By the way I had the chance to see Peter Jackson's "They shall not grow old" documentary last week.
Here's the trailer for those that haven't seen it yet.

Really amazing what he and his team were able to accomplish with that old war footage.

Hi Greg,
Thanks, The tin s the real deal.
Glad you liked the movie, it was amazing and I hope Peter shares some more of the 200 hours of film they colorized.

Really becoming captivated by what you are doing here Larry.
It's easy to see you are becoming a true historian as well as a very skilled modeler........
(looks like we are moving to Charleston, SC sometime this summer, perhaps we can meet in Myrtle Beach!)

My Grandfather had one of those tins from his dad. As I recall, her gift also came with a scarf that she knitted and some other sundries.
Looking good Lary!
