Joe Young's Tavern revisited

Good afternoon, evening, morning...that should cover it. The last time I photographed this house it wasnt finished, plus where it was located on the field it was too difficult to shoot the sides.  Long story short...I might be moving soon since we have an offer on our house. If we get the house we're looking at, my area will be over 3 times the size it is now which is basically a finished basement....sooo i decided to move stuff around since I'll be moving it all pretty soon. The side of the building with the door was taken from an actual civil war era building. The wall paper is also from that era. Notice the sniper in the widows watch.

Gentlemen, good evening,
Just a few quick shots of my Union mortar which is a 3/4 inch socket with a washer in front...all the rest of it is made of cardboard.

1948 Talbot Lago T26C

Front time to time I'll put something up here that seems out of place with what I'm doing...well now is the time. A while back I put up my Mad Max slot car, one of the 2 remaining slot cars that I decided to keep.
Here is the other one...1/24 scale plastic with metal chassis...runs extremely well.
