Default Welcome to Smiggin's Folly

This is my backyard tiny truck place for dolls and trucks. I've been working on it since the spring of this year. I have spent many hours toiling in the dirt and rocks. The rules for said tiny truck place are as follows: No Wraiths, no Wronchos, no Lexan, no wrestling figures, no cowl hoods, no Jeeps. Breaking the rules is punishable by death or a maximum of $50 fine.

Here it is. Tell me what you think.

You didn't say anything about mud trucks!! I'll be there soon. I do like the tiny rock garden to the left though, makes me feel happy.


Looks great, Richard! I know there is more to it than that though.

Mud trucks are welcome... only if they are Lexan Jeeps.


More? Oh yeah, I added some more rocks and couple of trees.

Super job on the cwarler garden and gorge, man! Definitely my most favorite. I was always curious to see the rest of it after you posted up the FJ video.

Well, my word....did you get permission to use cement in the back yard, young man?!

I'll not attend your scale truck soiree. There are many rocks there to scratch my paint.

Thank you. Yeah, I guess I forgot to post this. I didn't know if you guys liked dolls and stuff over here.

Yes, I sent a certified letter to my congressman and he approved it. The only way to scratch your paint here is if your truck drives upside down. Pretty easy course.

What's wrong with cowls? What about tinted windows to keep dust out of the interior?

Everything. Do tinted windows keep dust out of interiors better than clear windows?



Pappy Smiggin needs a home for the winter. I'm starting with a Speedweigand camper which was originally designed to fit the Hilux body. I'll be modifying it to my taste, err Pappy's that is.




Toy truck comedy coming soon.

Dye made specifically for concrete. It comes in a concentrated form and I diluted to my liking. I built up the color with a few washes of different colors to give it a natural look.
