See-Stadt

This is the largest diorama I've made so far, & it's relatively very small. It took 2 1/2 hours to set-up, photograph, & break-down. I call it "See-Stadt." The location is Piedmont Lake in Ohio. It was a good learning experience; taking involved shots outdoors is very different than using an indoor set-up, but the weather & wind cooperated, though it was a bit too sunny.…

Facebook Bible Quote

First of all, for the most part I've abandoned Facebook in all aspects except for keeping in contact with some close friends & anything Playmobil related. I'm actually enjoying being on FB again. although just for brief bits. However, today for a lark I tried out one of those FB Name Tests called "What Bible quote gives you strength?" (No, I'm not a Bible-thumper.) Since my FB avatar is also my Playmobil avatar, I ended up getting this spiffy meme-graphic which works REALLY well with my…

S.W. Randall

My partner's mother has been on life-support this past week in UPMC in Pittsburgh, PA. Things have been rough all week, but on Friday I had a chance to leave the hospital & visit a Pittsburgh toy store, S.W. Randall; there are 3 of these stores in Pittsburgh, & I went to the one closest to hospital. The store is actually in a very nice section of town, despite the presence of the derelict in the picture. Sadly, there was only a little Playmobil, but for the sake of being there, I…

5101 Mammoth Skeleton Tent

This is one of the presents from my birthday in July which I have just now opened.  The skeleton sans tent is fairly wonderful but it even kinda works with the skin over the full skeleton as well. I could picture an army of armed cavemen riding skeletons....…

"Highlight aus den Foren" for July 2016

One of my pictures was chosen as Platz 2 in "Highlight aus den Foren" for July 2016 at the Playmo-Treff forum. This is not a contest; the moderator chooses several pictures from all the ones posted in a particular month, then the members are polled for their favorites.

Back at Sir Troy's Toy Kingdom

Soldiers Tower

This is 6680 Soldiers Tower combined with 4127 Pirate & Redcoat Duo-Pack and 6435 French General. Normally the tower stays next to my bed to serve as a night light, but here it is shown in the more appropriate setting of Tappan Lake, in Ohio.

Steck Expansion

Last week I bought Medieval House with Barn & the Medieval Museum. (I was ecstatic.) Yesterday I bought two more House with Barn from the same store, which is also holding for me one more House & one more Museum, which I pick up next week when I have $.

So, here is my pile of Steck & what I got out of it. Of course, I'm already out of room on this table, & there are seven more buildings waiting to go on it. Next week I start experimenting with 3-story…

BBQ Chef Contest Prize

In June, I won the photo contest on the PlaymoFriends forum with my picture of William Tell.

The moderator, Birdie from Belgium, offers the winner a pick from a selection of prizes, & for mine I chose 6311 Summer Fun, which is a mini board game played with a BBQ chef klicky & four camping lanterns. I never opened the packet containing the board, as I probably won't play the game, but the klicky…

Medieval House w/ Barn & Museum

I had a great day on Saturday - I found Medieval House with Barn & Medieval Museum, both in storage at a local toy store, & going for the original prices - $49 for the Museum & $59 for the House. The owner says he has more old stuff in storage, so I'll think I'll be discovering some others soon.
