Don't Laugh !
Posted by oldcarguy on Sunday, December 16, 2018 8:44 AM


 Most of you have either played with them or stepped on you childrens LEGOS , Right ?Here's some insight to what you can do with LEGO and Model cars .

 I have found that the LEGO Fire and Police station roll up doors are just the right size for a smaller garage Diorama . Surprisingly , so are their doors for entry and egress to a building . 

 Now before you Phoo-Phoo the idea do this .Go to one of the better Toy and Hobby stores around .Hobby Town mainly .I know most cities have those .

They sell COBI building brick sets .Some even sell LEGO and BRICK-TECH as well as MEGA-BLOCKS . Some have buildings . Yes , you can glue the embossed Brick material over them for a more scale appearance .

  They also have some of the best tires to display in racks , much as it was done in stations around town .They have nice Clear , Smoke and Blue tinted shop windows .Also the two part windows that open to each side . I am not saying it is the cure all , But the flea market is less costly than most building kits. Especially 1/25 if you can find them !

Also their tyres are on the chunky side..if you dont mind ''lego'' embossed on the side - easily removed with a #11 blade.
