Prop's, Get out the Jalopy.

Get out the Jalopies or in this case Jalopy & polish up the wheels it got to be the smartest of the automobiles.
 The words above are from a song from the movie Monte Carlo or bust & was very much in my head while I was working on this prop.
What it is is a pencil sharpener from here,
now I know that people have gotten wagon's off of them but I'd not seen anyone with cars so I didn't know if they worked scale wise.
The car was cheap 5.25 Euro's but the postage was 11 odd Euro's so not knowing if the cars would work or not I ordered a couple of wagon's as well  take some of the sting out of the postage which was still 11 odd Euro's for 3 items instead of just one.
You could sit models in the front seat but not the back.
This had to go
go it did
& the back seat is usable
& when we arrive miles ahead of the rest
 everyone will know that our jalopy is best, you got to admit it's a car you can trust
Taylor Davies & Connemara Feeney out for a drive. 
so it's Monte Carlo or bust, if you'd like to hear the song, hit the link
That's a rap for this post, as always my thanks for dropping in & if you'd care to leave a comment it would be welcomed.


  1. I love it! Such a cool little addition to your collection. I have been thinking about getting some cheap tractors and cars as Infinity scatter terrain, but as you said, it is hard to know what will work scale-wise.

  2. Thank's Marc, it is hard but sometimes you just have to take a chance mate.

  3. Thanks Gordon, I'm very happy with & will be ordering some of the other soon, but just want to stay focused on what I'm working on at the moment which I just needed one car for.

  4. That is absolutely amazing! A pencil sharpener?! Madness!
    I went to the site and there are some really cool looking cars - that Mercedes Benz 300 sl looks like it's straight out of Goldfinger :)
    Where are your figures from that are seated in the car? They look great.

    1. Thanks Ivor, yep there's some nice car over there no doth, the models are from Foundry mate as are any other seated models that you might see me using,.

      Here's links to the two above, Rose of the Empire.

      Solid chaps to a man.
