Ed: "Another wood structure, please."

Nothing too exotic. Just a small scratch built, balsa and styrene scale shed recycled into a farm machinery sales office.

More wood structures, please.

Here's an old Athearn 50' tank-on-frame car converted to a more modern frameless car...

Since I didn't have my camera with me at the time, it's based on a sketch I made of the prototype, sitting at the former Proctor & Gamble site, in my hometown of Hamilton, Ontario.

Wayne

More B&W photos, please.

OK, my pictures are getting old!  I need to take new pics.  I'll spare you all the water fall scene again, and post this rock out cropping.
