    Last night I threw together some freight to dress up an area on my layout. I took some balsa blocks and cut them with my razor saw to size. I then wrapped them with thin paper like auto parts invoices are printed on, in fact that what I used for most. I wrapped them just like presents, in fact it was in wrapping a present that I got the idea. A few I painted, a few I didn't. I then added interesting bits of lettering and put the pallets bottoms on. The bottoms are toothpicks. After the glue set I trimmed the toothpicks with nippers. One I even wrapped with scotch tape after for "shrink wrap". This is one of them 'set in front of TV one hour jobs" that anyone can do in their wasted time. DASH

    Speaking of which.... anybody spotted it lately?

    PS - If we had a forum/category for "1 Hr projects" or the like, this would be a great candidate! Good work, DX.

    Good modelling and a great idea. We should all have loads of freight around.

    Beware the "box". That thing is liable to show up in that stack of freight and dash won't know it until it is too late.

    I"m glad someone explained "the box" by leaving a link. I did a search in this forum and got no hits. Anyway, I think I found it. Is this the right way? DX

    I thought Lee Majors passed on from metal poisioning? Anyway, we all know that program was a joke, the premise that the US goverment could build him for 6 million dollars, geeze, the Craftsman tool set alone would cost more than that, even in 1970s dollars. That's the only part of that show that was really unbelievable. -x

    Linsay Wagner was cute, but Linda Carter and Erin Gray were ooo. Wonder Woman can laso me anytime! And Erin can fly my spaceship anytime. These were clean wholesome women who didn't put metal in their body and kiss other women. I bet they bathed regularly too. \x
