Thanks, George, Mike, Bob, Pete and Rich !!

Yeah, coming up with a lot of credible junk may be more of a challenge than the truck was.

Frank, "keep on truckin'".

Nice job on the old building and truck. Maybe you should consider changing the name to Sanford and Son!

That truck looks just awesome. The building is cool too. Probably ice cold on a winter day.

Thanks, Bob !!

Ted, the driveways are made from some really thin sheet cork with a self-adhesive backing, that I bought by accident a while back. It was thinner than I thought. But it works great for this. What I do is cut it to the dimensions I want. Then paint it and weather it before applying it to the scene. When I'm ready to do that I tear it into pieces and then fit them back together, sort of like puzzle pieces.

That is very clever Fred'.. I like using the cork for roads also since you informed me about it. I'll have to try this method out, as I really like the look.... Thanks Fred'..

The basic ground cover is down, I don't think there will be much grass. And I've added fencing. I originally thought I would go around all three sides with the chain link but rather than shortening up the yard that much I thought I'd leave to the imagination that the yard extends much further into the foreground.



Obviously I still need to come up with a gate.



And I've been working on gathering more "salvage".





That's not necessarily it's final placement, it was just posing for the photoshoot.

Ya, what Bill said. I like they way the building looks like it's sitting in the ground not on it.

Thatís a most realistic fence. And the building is well planted. Very nice all around.
