    i was on ebay looking at the N-scale army trucks, jeeps, tanks and what not, and i had a thought, ......(i know its scary) but if i could just find people in milatary dress uniforms or even just BDU's id like to have a bunch of them walking out of a am trak station COMMING HOME. and have a big group of people, standing there maybe behind a rope with signs saying welcome home and what not. i think this would make for some great pic's, could be done in any scale i guess.

    ozzy,,, ( now looking for this type of N scale people)

    ya, i get so ****** at them protestors that stand at the funerals of our fallen solders. im a member of the patriot rider gaurd, i have been to 3 funerals that the protestors were at.

    you want to see somthing, stand on a curb and watch as 500 motorcycles escort the body in a town, or down the interstate from the air port, and then when they get to the grave site we get off the bikes and form a flag line, (standing inbetween the famley and the protestors, with our backs to the protestors) the idea is to keep the famley from seeing the protestors

    not to get political, but are those those people with the "TGF 9/11" signs?!?!? Yikes, that's rather scary. Seems rather odd If you ask me, also very insenstitive to the sad families having salt rubbed in their already deep wounds because of their loss. :cry:

    I like the Idea, if only you were in HO scale, because walthers makes a very nice set of GI's returning home, and the crowd would be easier to model as well!

    That's a great Idea! I wish I could do something like that on my layout, except I'm not sure if the Korean War ever ended.. :( When did we leave? I know the cease fire was in '53..but don't we still have a presence there? IF they call it "The Forgotten War" did people get welcomed home as grandly as they should have?

    we still have troops and bases in S. korea.

    the protestors are from KS. its a wako that thinks hes a preacher and his famley. they say that the reason our troops are dieing in iraq is cuz the US lets gays in the military. the have a website www.godhatesfags.com, there less then a 100 member of there "church" our web site is www.patriotguard.org . you can check both out and see both sides. the patriot guard riders are well over 50,000 strong, and only maybe a year old.

    the protestor show up univited of course, but the PGR only shows up if asked by the famly. and the PGR do wecome home rides when a unit comes back, and when a unit leave for the "sand box" even been to some WW2 vets funerals.

    I've found the 10mm wargame figures quite satisfactory for N scale. The 20th century collection from these guys should easily fill the bill with the right paint. >>> http://www.pendraken.co.uk/

    Great idea, too:thumb:

    Ralph Remember...it's for fun!

    I think one could model such a scene in many different time periods. Not sure about the availablility of WWII figures or even Civil war perhaps. It would make a nice scene on many different types of layouts.
