    I dig the pic. in the snow. I have a virtual model graveyard in my basement. Models ranging from the forties to the 2000s. I'll see about getting some pics up.

    OK, so it's not a wagon but here's my dio I often use to photograph models. The car is a derelict I built from an old 39 Chevy kit that got damaged. The fenders and undercarriage are still "too clean" because I haven't gotten around to weathering them yet. The "brake drums" are HO scale freight car wheels with the centers drilled out to fit over the axles. I built the cinder blocks from stripwood.

    Very cool models, gentlemen. I collect Franklin and Danbury mints; I'll have to take some pics as well and put them on.

    I still have a hundred or more plastic 1/25 scale models I built over the years from my teens in the 70's up through the 90's. But I've been collecting 1/18 scale diecasts since then. Not much available in wagons though in 1/18 scale. A couple friends and I built a couple dioramas for displaying 1/18 scale diecast cars. One is a Bob's Big Boy restaurant and the other is an approximation of the Grand Spaulding Dodge dealership.

    There's more than one? (SAE)

    Ed, how did you do the G M C L' Universalle? Is there a thread on it at SAE? Looks like there's some '56 Chevy parts in it for sure. In your research on it, did you come across a window van version of it. I seem to remember seeing a photo of one many years ago, maybe from an old Popular Mechanics or Popular Science. My memory could be failing me, though.

    Not sure if diecast counts, but here's my "shop"... Can't afford the real one, so I have to dream...

    The big 'M' fries... too much.:rofl2:

    I like your dream though.

    I figured out the other day, that I'd want a ceiling height of 12 feet to use a raftered hoist and a rotisserie, 300 sq feet per vehicle and a 400 sq foot dust separated woodworking shop on the other side of a concrete block wall. 1,300 sq feet with a grease pit in one stall. Geothermal HVAC and Solar hotwater, with 240 VAC power for welding. Air make up unit for the six months of winter. I could roller paint in peace. No wind, no skitters, no dust. :rofl2:

    Now when's that Lottery check coming, honey? :rofl2:
