This is a portion of my HO scale railroad modular display depicting a small city on the outskirts of Los Angeles in 1939. Right behind the tank car is a Jordan Essex with the hood opened up. Other models are from Sylvan and Wheel Works, among others. The 7-up truck is a Golden Wheels body with the cab and chassis from Classic Metal Works.
Very nice! Great lighting on the scene - looks just like a hot afternoon California sun!
Do you have a blog or something else showing your model railroad? Several of us on this forum are model rails as well and I'm sure we all would like to see more of your excellent modeling. For example, I'd like to know your construction method for the streets/sidewalks, and I'd like to see more of the structures in the photo.
Al, it really was shot under the hot California sun. This scene is on a 6' x 30" module that I set up outdoors on July 20. Here's a link to the club's website that shows many photos of my and the other members' work: trainweb.org/20s30s/ Mine is at Module photos > Current > Charley Hepperle There are more photos on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pages/20s-30s-Modular-Model-Railroad/68545409395 ...and on our Pinterest page:
We're in the greater Los Angeles/Orange County area. New members are welcome. There are no officers, no dues, no meetings and no clubhouse.
I just realized that I should have started this thread in the Diorama folder. If a moderator sees this, it's OK with me to move it. In the meantime, in the spirit of "All done," here's a photo of one of the vehicles in the street scene. It's near the green 7-up truck, toward the camera. The vehicle is an Athearn Ford Model A pickup with some modifications: Painted fabric roof Black-painted headlights and radiator shell Wheels replaced with Jordan Model A wheels (Jordan sells several styles of wheels separately -- go get some!) Tool box and cardboard cartons added Light weathering
The hoodlum figures don't appear in the street scene.
