Not quite a city or town but a place with a post office and as Alpine was taken they came up with Twin Peaks. The odd thing being that there is only one peak. Anyway my speciality is toys of the 1960s although I collect much more. I have a particular weakness for taxidermy which includes everything from insects to bear skin rugs although I don't have a bear skin rug yet. fortapacheftr@charter.net (Read more)

  1. Thank you very much Pippy. I don't think thing are hugely valuable but they are very cool. Mid century modern masterpieces. The extra small singers are quite valuable in case you run into one.
  2. Thank you very much vintagelamp.
  3. Thank you very much Plane Old Crazy. All valid points. I point out the details or lack thereof with each post. The Lancaster was very well detailed compared to the B17. Remind me to post the Raiden. D...
  4. The trash truck has made it to #4.
  5. Now we are talking. Recognized each one. You can get a dummy PAB pretty cheap last I looked.
  6. Hopefully solid shot so it doesn't go boom. Yes dimensions would help. Looks like 37mm to me.
  7. Thank you very much Sean. I will look that up. That was the very beginning of CW.
  8. Made it to #8.
  9. Yes Alfie from the cab it does.
  10. Thank you very much Newfld. Thank you very much Alfie. I learned that riding in the cab of a GP9. Plus I recently saw a video of a passenger train with a rear facing GP9 in the lead.

  18. Thank you very much MCS. One wonders where this one was.
  19. Thank you very much Torque. I would like to have a nice old car for the target and see what is left.
  20. Thank you very much Plane Crazy. I think Backmann had a budget of only so much for each model so no guns ( I think). I should be looking for a complete boxed one of these.
  21. Big Bang cannon. They sell parts for these.
  22. It's a helmet. Probably American.

  30. Thank you very much AO. I think you could be making a valid point. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. Partial to the Pegasus too.
  31. Could be an Electrex. Style looks to be around 1950 based on the style. It is on the base backwards.
  32. Thank you very much Ms.CrytalShip. You do see a wring washer. Never have tried to use it.
  33. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. Getting those little accessories is the hard part.
