      The Kid

      This is a test but while I'm at it, an explanation:

      The locomotive is the iconic Kalamazoo 4-4-0 that I have detailed.

      The car is "The California Kid" Danbury Mint 1934 Ford that I have modified to represent the car as it appeared in the movie of the same name.

      No, they are a swap from a Danbury '32 Ford diecast:

       

       

      Probably the toughest part of the conversion was getting the tires from "The Kid' diecast to fit on the '32 rims - they were NOT designed to be interchangeable for some reason.

       

       

      You can see lots of pictures and details at 'The Kid' link in the original post.
