OMG. I must have 1000 photos of Dave 's models. I think I'll contribute just a few as we go along.
First, I must say why I love these models: The have an elegant simplicity that makes them perfect for modding, while having a no-compromise quality of premium textures. This is why SO MANY of my fold-flat/interior modifications are of Dave Graffam models.
So, I'll start with one of my most recent builds/mods - I take a 7-piece model and trick it out to be a showpiece using only DGM textures:
Finally I made a 3rd version of the walls (shown in most of the photos), with the panels cut out, and wall size sheets of acetate glued between the interior and anterior walls. This made the sides very strong and resistant to warping.
Ah, thanks for the return welcome VK. Nice to be missed. I have missed this place too. I don't want to derail this wonderful thread, so I will just say current circumstances can best be described as turbulent and uncertain and leave it at that. I do intend to make a more concerted return once I have regained stability.
I need to reclaim the town from my former home, and give it the love it's been bereft of in the last year. I have at least a dozen of Dave's models still to assemble, plus a few kitbashes, and I am eager to expand its scope and interactivity.

Toman: yes. though the kids need to be reminded to put them away when they are done. I've come home from work and they are all watching tv while the bikes are sitting in the front lawn. kids

Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
