    Default Crazy time in Hope

    I've been building N scale layouts for nigh unto 20 years now, and over that time I've gradually amassed quite the collection of basically useless human figures. However, since this layout will likely be my last, I've been desperately trying to use up as many of them as possible (they're not worth trying to sell, and what a shame to just throw them away).

    Case in point - this 9' tall Woodland Scenics traffic cop writing some sort of ticket for this collection of Woodland Scenics sheik-of-araby-looking asphalt workers (wielding, I dunno, sticks?)



    Now all I need is the story. Any suggestions?

    Ain't that 4 of the McCoy quintuplets? Prolly aiming to snatch some honey from Burt's farm down yonder. Looks like Meryl, Beryl, Daryl and Daryl.

    Cousin Larry probably just warning them. He won't give em no ticket. Prolly...

    Do you have a figure of me? If so, you could put it in the bank as I used to go there to do network work with their machines.

    I can't remember if there was a bar there, or not. If so, you could put at least one of me in there, too.

    I'm pretty sure those are aluminum foil caps with sun drape in the back. It turns out their suspicions are warranted.

    Sure enough, there you are - emerging from the back patio at Spurgy's, cold one in hand, to check out the keruffle on the street
