"Leonard, check it out. I've bought an N Gauge locomotive. Half the size of HO. Look...it fits in my mouth!"



Chuck Doan's work seems to have inspired the first diorama. The second, with the boat under construction, looks much better in every way. The auto garage is of the same quality as the boat diorama. In all cases, his presentation and lighting are excellent. Thanks for posting the link. It's inspirational. -- Russ


These are nice and bring to mind one of our sadly passed away members, Chester.


Wow the 1940's Garage is Cool  ;D I really enjoyed his modeling

That is some fantastic work! The scratch built, 1/87th scale drill press is especially impressive.

Beautiful work!  And in HO even more impressive.

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?
