You can do it Slim. 

Call Preiser and have them send you a whole year's production.

See ya

Maybe just the characters from Boardwalk Empire. Nucky, Eli, Chalky White, Gyp, Richard Harrow (my favorite), Margaret, Valentin, Chianese, and Al Capone.
Great show.

Not Gyp. That guy's too much of a lunatic :o .I'd rather have Rothstein instead.

Slim, Bobby Cannavale, plays some crazy dudes (Vinyl). Than there was The Mother&^%$#@ with the Hat. He is from Union City, N. J..
Michael Stuhlbarg was also superb on the show. Good swap.
Steelers fan?

It depends on your audience- on your layout, or on a diorama entered in a popular vote contest, properly dulled down and weathered LP can help in adding interest and bringing the model to life by creating mini-scenes.


A model to be photographed for an article or to be entered in an NMRA judged contest, I usually skip figures as I feel they are more likely to detract than add value. Many photographs of models look absolutely like the real thing until you spot a figure or two in the picture.
