    In reponse to your post on Bear river merchantile, I stated there were not many bait and tackle shops.
    Ozzies bait and tackle, in Copiague, N.Y. was on the south side of Merrick road in Copiague, where I grew up. It didn't look like this,(I have no photos),but I spent a lot of time, and money,
    there. I guess I also threw a lot of that "money" into the Atlantic, every time my surf casting reel would backlash, and the line would part.
    This model sits right up against the skyboard, and the only way to take the picture was to remove the skyboard. You can see the edge of the next module's board to the right of the picture.
    The original building was a gas station in plastic.

    Pete that's terrific! love the setting scenics. Are you using the WS green filter floss for your trees? Your trees are so nice light and airy, something I have been striving to do.

    Great model Pete and the setting is perfect.

    If the green filter floss you refer to is the W.S. "polyfiber", yes.
    I take a small pinch, and expand the ---- out of it. W.S. "coarse turf" is then sifted over the polyfiber after it has been sprayed with Testors glosscoat. I use the glosscoat, because it is lightweight, clear, and doesn't go milky after three or four applications.
