It has been over three years since we have devoted a Gallery Theme to non-rail vehicles. You know, the cars, trucks, bikes and construction equipment that populate our dioramas and layouts.

Whether vehicle modeling is your main passion or if you use pre-builts out of the box, this is your chance to give them their 'moment in the sun'.

Those visiting the Gallery this month would probably appreciate it if you would identify the origin of the vehicle(s) as well.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Here's a tracked Ford that I kitbashed a few years ago, parked in front of our house. Used a Jordan Ford body of some kind, scribed styrene and bits and pieces from here and there. The tracks came from a small toylike tractor, they were shortened for use :



This was my inspiration:

Great topic, Bruce, and very timely. See, yesterday, I participated in a tour of local layouts. There was some really fine layouts on the tour, everything from a very nicely done 4' X 8' to a magnificent 26' X 30' masterpiece. But they all had one thing in common: most of the vehicles on the layouts were straight "out of the box." It's always amazed me how some modelers (but certainly not all as already shown in this thread) will detail and weather their motive power, rolling stock, structures and scenery but not do the same with vehicles. It adds so much to the realistic appearance of a layout. Here are a couple of "before and after" pics to illustrate.


Here are a bunch of CMW vehicles straight out of the box. Everything else in the scene has been detailed and weathered to make the scene look right. So the vehicles stick out like a very sore thumb.


Here's the same scene after the vehicles have been detailed and weathered. Now they blend into the scene and help to make the scene look much more natural. And, truthfully, it doesn't take much more time to run a batch of vehicles than it does to paint a batch of people.

There is always a car show going on at "Lookout Point". All three hot rod vehicles are from Mattel Hot Wheels. The Police car is a CMW Mini Metals. I removed the roof from the white Hot Wheels vehicle and put in a woodland scenics couple.
