I just didn't know where to put this--two vintage Lionel buildings on display at a nearby farm's produce shop; enjoy!

I found this half-size bungalow plot at a yard-sale. It was made by Ron Morris quite a few years ago. The bungalow is a recent MTH/Lionel Corp repro. The plot needs some refurbishment, but I thought I'd post a pic here:

Seeing how this was made, at some point I'm going to try my hand at making a few others. Now where does one find luffa...???

Paul, Howard Lamey and I have come up with the graphics and plans necessary to make your own cardboard reproduction of the bungalo, if you want to try.

That's very sharp, and would certainly beat the seventy some-odd bucks for a repro...I'll have to give it a try.

Thanks!

note...I have no connection or financial interest with this vendor..

Hi Howard...would love to know a good source for luffa. My attempts to make it and/or find a similar alternative material have been pretty unsuccessful. If you have someone in mind, would love to give them a try.

Thanks.

i buy my luffah here...send an email to this address...

chris@luffa.info

Chris Blumenstock
126 Sunny Acres
Elizabethton, TN 37643

fair price, excellent quality and ships quickly...tell him who you are and what you want...his minimum order is 100" of luffah...
(note...i have no financial connection with chris, the supplier)...

here is a link to another project i did in late 2014...i made the hedge out of "green pot scrubber pads" from the dollar store...scroll down the post for the details...this may work for you as well for your hedge...but the "luffah" will probably be the best for the trees and shrubs...

my very best regards...howard

Thanks Howard...I'll flip him a note.

I've gone the pot-scrubber route on a couple of projects...they work well.
