1937 Harley Davidson Knucklehead
This custom made rider is sitting on top of a Matchbox 1/20 scale knucklehead motorcycle. He will be cruising into the town of Brokenwheel looking for a cold beer and a warm bed. For those that are interested, a build-log is posted on the main Vehicles page.
Overloaded Dust Bowl Okie Model T
This was made by cutting the roof off a Hubley Depot Hack and building the side rails out of strip wood.The cloth top was made by gluing a piece of linen to a square of mat-board and then saturating it with paint to make it sag. The family is from a variety of sources. Dad is a Tamiya pit crew figure. Mom is by LGB and the kids are DIY architectural figures. All have been remodeled and painted by me. Lots of custom made and painted details hang on the sides while a rag caps the top of the radiator. If you look close the truck has a 1938 OK license plate on it.
