The buildings are 1/24th scale (or 1/2 inch equals a foot). They are constructed of Gator board, styrene plastic, Sintra (a light flexible plastic that can be carved, and painted) plus numerous found objects; such as jewelery pieces, finishing washers and printed material.

November Snow 1954: A lot of baking soda was shaken over the set, then lit with one 60 watt bulb, that was just out of the frame.  The glare from the bulb gave the appearance of falling snow being diffused by a street light.

As much as I liked the new '62's, it made me a bit sad to see all the '61's in the "mark down" lot.

I gave this shot a "faded color" look to evoke the feel of a past era.

This is a piece I did for West Coast Precision Diecast models.

A 62 Impala SS convertable in "Anniversary Gold" (with a 409 engine, if I'm reading the front fender flags correctly).........I likely was working in the plant that built that vehicle (in RL)
