Your village is absolutely smashing! I would love to have something like that on permanent display.

That would be fun, but it would also get dusty and take up too much room.

Drive-Ins and convertibles would be nice right about now. Our temps really took a plunge last night.

To celebrate the arrival of my new Ford Landau by Ace, I threw together this 1970's Australian street scene.

Michael, out of curiosity, how big is the tabletop? You always set up the cars/buildings in the same place?

Of course I always want to make it look bigger than it actually is, but mesures 47 inches deep and 68 inches wide (sorry, I've misplaced my metric tape measure).

Spring morning in 1961;

ImageSpring Morning, 1961 by Michael, on Flickr

I've always wanted to do a spring themed diorama, but until now, I didn't have suitable vegetation. I found most of these trees recently at the American craft store chain called "Michael's". The brand is called Ashland Spring which I thinks is a Michael house brand.

I've got a bit of work to do yet in order to disguise the improvised tree bases.

You need to also add a guy cutting grass as that seems to be all that is going on over here. :lol:
