I love dioramas! They're always interesting, and I love being able to see things from another persons' point of view. This is cool, lot's to see. Thanks for sharing this, it brings back a lot of fond childhood memories.

This is simply fantastic, when I was modeling trolleys and interurban's some people I was out of touch with reality until I had photos of the real thing that was running in their own town around 1900, but who ever coincided modeling the highway system, this is a great project keep us posted on future work.

On MY (1/64) Highway UPDATE

It's been tough keeping up with all the recent additions being added to the 1stPix dioramas- and lately i've been trying to concentrate on the all new city and build some more off-road layouts...

but, here's a few more everyday shots from MY highway:

Car carriers..

I saw a few car carriers here. Nice one with the classics. Do you have any that are classic? I'd love to put one or 2 on my layout, but they're either too old without enough detail, or too small, like the newer yellow Hotwheels. Seems like these and busses are left out, at least where I've been looking..

DON'T DRIVE ANGRY!!!! I'll agree with that!! :thumbsup: Too many A-holes around here to begin with! What used to be two lane roads have evolved into eight lane highways here.

I love the lighting, and camera quality of you photos! The broken down Mustang with the tow truck is cute. I like the gridlock look that this has. It reminds of the hot afternoons going from the north end of town to the south where I live with no air conditioning in a '78 Chevy Monte Carlo that used to be my grandmothers'. She loved that car - I hated it!! It would die every time I turned a corner, or stepped on the gas until it got hot enough for the oil to circulate! It almost cost me my life when it was destroyed by a speeding teen punk from another city that was in a hell fire hurry to get home two days before thanksgiving of '98. I still have dreams about that car from time to time. :rolleyes:

THANKS 4 all the comments and compliments...

as far as 'classic' car carriers go- M2 machines has just released some within the last 6 months or so. (about $16 each) i've seen 'em at wally's etc, and of course online... i have two of 'em, but no pix right now.

Don't Drive Angry is a favorite slogan of mine- it's from a great movie...

I understand, brother. I was just reiterating what you've already said. I agree completely! I've seen, and even done some really stupid things in traffic myself when driving angry because someone elses stupidity enrages me!
