PICS - Backgrounding my little 16' town, & a new direction taken.
After many frenetic collecting years I am at an interesting heart & head place, my representative groups of cars are essentially complete and my model meanderings fulfilled. I find it curious that I am little interested in new offerings now, wonderful though they be; however I do miss the excitement shared for the new Automodello's, Brooklins, etc. on the forum. I miss that.
The excitement of "the chase" and anticipation of new purchases has dimmed leaving some sort of a void that is hard to describe. Hmmmmm. Another of life's mysteries.Msg. to self - Now What?Am attempting to morph my focus onto improving displays and the story each tells. The task is not quite as fun because
I love opening boxes to see the little treasures within, but I'm working at it. I find trying to display and tell the story of each group of autos, in a fun and interesting way, more challenging but with less joy - so far.
The following pics exemplify what I am trying to accomplish and I hope you enjoy them.
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Bob Hooper of Dominion Models is also a train guy and he suggested that using an "O" gauge train backdrop behind my little town might add interest. Do you agree?The town's old main street as shown from it's west side driving east. Note the building's shown in the backdrop behind it.
My Rolls-Royce and Bentley Restoration business.
The DM interiors are amazingly well detailed.
I worked at McD's at the age of 16 and was amazed at the memories it evoked once the interior was fully seen.
Well Done Danbury Mint.
This is the Route 66 display on the shelf below the Gulf station.
The mini car grouping. Am still looking for an aqua Nash Metropolitan convertible.
A view of most of the 16' long display case showing the two 1/43ed scale shelves in the middle. The shelves above and below are essentially dedicated to 1/18th scale.
